Align Dimension to Edge

EmailFacebookGoogle+LinkedInTwitterShare

Ever get “stuck” not being able to get a dimension at the right angle/orientation (when manually dimensioning on a drawing)?

Do you know about “ALIGN TO EDGE”?
Go ahead and place the dimension (in the wrong orientation), then just right click it and choose “ALIGN TO EDGE”. Select some edge of your model that you want the dimension parallel to, and there you go!
Piece of cake!
