Bevel dimension routine?

Recommended Posts

lamensterms

Hi guys,

 

hopefully a pretty simply one here. I was just wondering if anyone has a routine (or knows of one) which will create a 'bevel' symbol/dimension similiar to the one shown in the attached image?

 

Im not certain that im using the correct terminology to describe the dimension type - and i have tried a bit of googling with little luck (not knowing exactly how to describe what i was looking for).

 

So... does anyone know of a routine which would create such a symbol? or of there is another method i can use?

Thanks so much for any help.

AutoCAD Mechanical has it, but I'm guessing you're using vanilla.

hi SLW210 - thanks for the reply.

 

That is the symbol i am looking for, but im afraid that routine is not much help to me as both the values i require (rise/run) are user input - and the only value calculated is the angle (which i do not need).

 

Ideally the routine i seek would only require the user to pick a line, and then also determine which side of this line the annotation/symbol would be placed. The 'run' value (1000 in the second example shown above) would always be constant and the 'rise' value would vary depending on the conditions.

 

thanks again for your reply.

Hi devitg,

 

Attached in this post is a DWG containing the attribute tags and a slope symbol i would like the finished block to look like. The triangle would need to be scaled proportional to the slope.

 

I hope that makes sense.

 

thanks for any help.
