<p class="Body-Text'> Use this feature to create a series of dimensions measured vertically between selected positions.


Using the Function:

  1. Select Chain Vertical from the Detail>Linear Dimension submenu.

  2. Indicate a series of positions for dimensioning. Select a maximum of 50 reference points for chain dimensions and click ACCEPT when finished.

  3. Indicate a witness line height. This position is used to calculate the witness and leader lines for the dimension. Two temporary witness lines appear showing the boundaries of the dimension.

  4. Indicate a position for the dimension text. The dimension text is displayed at the position you specified and changes the temporary lines to solid witness lines. Two more temporary witness lines are automatically displayed defining the next dimensions boundaries, and so on.
