numberOCD posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHey guys, I'm looking for any method to have an annotative circle or dot in a dynamic block. I'm marking street lights along the highway with a circle and am throwing an attribute text with its name plate on the side in Defpoints. Is there a way to make the circular or dot shape annotative to remain 0.100 inches diameter no matter the zoom? Thanks
T250AP4 posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHey forum, I'm an apprentice out of local two five Oooohh and when I annotate anything my numbers come out backwards. Does anyone have advice to get them lookin right?
I have been racking my brain as to how to make this work and am at a loss so please help me figure this out. I have a simple assembly of a pin and hood. The pin has a spherical end and the hood has a fillet edge that continues to wrap spherically inward. When trying to dimension the OAL on the side view it is easy and obvious. When trying to do it on the iso view the measurements are never correct. I do not have a good point to choose from on the hood as it has a fillet edge not a square point, which would be easy. Without a flat surface to go off of and in the paper space there is no way to specify quadrants/edges/planes when annotating. The space bar trick helps but does still does not dimension to the right point. When I try to use the RETRIEVE DIMENSIONS action, I can get the OAL of the pin and OAL of the hood separately, but not as an assembly OAL. I tried to go into the assembly and create random sketches, planes, fake dimensions that might be used by the retrieve dim action, but to no avail. This is the simplest part I am using as a reference, I have much more elaborate parts that are giving me the same issue. It would seem straightforward, but for the life of me cannot find an easy way to get that simple OAL. Thanks for the help. Go Sun Devils!
