The available settings in the Circles page of the Auto Dimension Configuration dialog box allow you to specify the parameters by which the Auto Dimension feature can generate circle dimensions. The available settings are explained in the following segment. Note that the settings contained in the Circles page will be grayed out unless Circle Dimensions is first enabled under Dimension Type in the Mode & Selection page.
Select a type from the available options: Radius or Diameter. When Radius is selected, Auto Dimension will generate a radius dimension. When Diameter is selected, Auto Dimension will generate a diameter dimension.
The value you enter in the Distance field will determine how far the text will be placed from the dimension being created. In Layout Mode, the distance will be scaled according to the instance scale.
The anchor point of the dimension text will be placed at the midpoint of the angle. Dimensions on concentric arcs will be created with 10° difference. For example, if 3 concentric circles are found, the first dimension will be created at 45°, the 2nd at 55° and the 3rd at 65° etc.
When checked, Auto Dimension will use the settings specified in the selected Dimension Template File (*.DIM). Use the browse button to search for the appropriate file to open.
In order for the Add Axes options to be selectable, you must first enable (check) the Add Axes setting. This option allows you to add axes to all arcs being dimensioned. The parameters by which this feature will function are explained below.
These settings allow you to apply a filter to the dimensions being automatically created. The filter parameters that can be configured are explained below.
