This is a 2D isometric drawing right?

I would create a couple of different dimension styles and appropriate arrowheads to go with them if I found myself having to do these types of drawings on a regular basis. Is this a class assignment?

Thanks but the tips is to dimension the text instead. What i want to do is to align the arrows. The dimension of isocircles remain an issue as well.

You dimension to the center of the isocircle and then call out the diameter

 

You need some isometric arrowheads too don't you? Can't use the default ones as they don't look right.

Insert the attached drawing into your drawing, use the various styles and follow the instructions to oblique the dims.
