Dimensioning right angles

Recommended Posts

Jodles

Hi!

 

Is there a way to have AutoCAD use the "right angle symbol" instead of showing 90 degrees when it measures right angles?

 

I looked in the documentation for it, but could not find anything...

 

Thanks!

Make your own symbol and insert it.

I think it may be possible to create a dimstyle, but I think it would take some really creative programming to have AutoCAD automatically use the right angle symbol for 90 degrees while using a regular angular dimension for all others.

Draw it, put it over a leader landing, and make a block out of the thing.

+1 on this one. I thought that was a universal standard.

It pretty much is, I think. It's been a long time since I did any mechanical, though. I wonder what the field dudes would say if I dimensioned all the right angles in the architectural plans.

They'd probably show up at your office with a rope.
