Positioning the Angular dimension line

Recommended Posts

Good Day All.

 

I am creating an angular dimension for an acute angle, say 30 degree; but instead of the dimension say 30 degrees, it goes to measuring the outside of the angle which is 330 degrees.

Is there any property which can be set to create the result wanted?

maybe a bit old thread in autoLISP forum?
;Multiple DimAngular method in Visual Lisp
;AngLwp.lsp

;you must apply these global settings in order to work as desired

(setq 
*dimsuppressed* nil ; t= suppressed / nil= normal
*dimtxtinside* nil  ; t= acute angle / nil= obtuse large > 180
)

In VBA use this method :

object.AddDim3PointAngular(AngleVertex, FirstEndPoint, SecondEndPoint, TextPoint)

you need to calculate TextPoint in order to put obtuse annotation

Thanks. I am using VBA, so I cannot relate to the solution offered. Can you provide a VBA solution?

The angle to be dimension changes based on the pointer position.

What do you mean by Pointer position? Do you mean Text Point?

Which Object is refered to here, since angle is comprised of 2 lines
