"Rotated Dimension" - Tab

Recommended Posts

ahebert

I am looking to see if anyone has had this issue with dimensions.

I add a dimension to my drawing, select it to stretch by grips and my UCS rotates to some odd angle. I am no longer able to stretch the dimension!

 

Any help is greatly appritiated.

 

I am currently using AutoCAD MEP 2014 with Fabrication CAD......

Welcome to CADTutor. :)

Might you have ISOMETRIC SNAPS enabled?

Or Isometric Snaps and Ortho?

 

I am unable to duplicate your problem, but those sound like

they might play a part.

Is your UCSFOLLOW set to 1, maybe?

Sorry these are all rather like shots in the dark, maybe one of them will pan out.

Do you have the EastCoast CAD/CAM plugin? If so can you check the status of the UCSFOLLOWDIMENSION variable? Try setting it to No.

I am getting the "1 was not parallel to the UCS" Error Message...

Our department over the past three years have used three different "bolt on" programs. East Coast CAD, QuickPen Pipe Designer 3D, and currently Fabrication CAD MEP.

I have checked the UCSFOLLOW and it is set to 0. Since originally posting this issue, I have only had it come up twice. Still not sure what to do to fix it on other machines in my department. Any other thoughts?

This message means the current UCS and the UCS used when placing thedimension are different.

How it got to be that way could be from an add onprogram, having UCS set to follow or as the IT department says it’s an EBKAC.

ah the most unfortunate of errors, often a simple one to fix yet the person in question is rarely willing and able to follow through
