custom text for dimensions

Apr 5, 2016 at 7:55 PM
Hey :)

Is there any build in solution to create a custom dimension description?

I need to replace the actual measurement string.

e.g. for drillholes

You can use the DIMPOST property of the dimension style, this will be applied to all dimensions that share the same style. At the moment since the dimension override is not implemented you cannot do it individually. To overcome this you can use specific styles for those cases or, once the block that represents the dimension is created when it is added to the document, you can modify the MText entity of that block. This last solution has a big drawback every time the dimension block is regenerated you will loose those changes.

If you haven't found it yet. I forgot, that I already implemented something to do just that. If the text is all you want to personalize the Dimension entity has a property called "UserText" for this purpose.
