Very simple dimensioning objects

Recommended Posts

Just in case anyone is interested, I was playing around and came up with these simple dimensioning objects (in the attached afdesign file).
To use them accurately you will have to snap to the grid, they don’t have automatic measurements, and they don’t work in all situations, but they can be used for simple drawings without too much fuss (you can see them working in the GIF).
You might need to adjust some elements in some copies of the objects to make your drawing look right but it’s not too difficult.
You can change the “Dimensions” Text Style font to get a different look and you can change the “Dimensions” colour in the “Dimensioning” Palette to create a quick blueprint (see last attached image).

Wow. Thanks for this. Definitely a time-saver.

Sometimes I use photos for reference at my job. It can be a pain to fire up Autocad and import/scale the images just to make some quick annotations.

Using these on various colored photos, with a simple Contrast Negate blend, really makes them stand out.
