I work in construction. Our primary use case for SketchUp is quickly generating scaled plans for conduit runs. Because these plans are only represented in 2-D 99% of the time, this allows me to quickly give our crews reference for how they should plan their runs.
Dimensions are typically provided based on a fixed reference point. In the case of a current job, the best reference is relative to an existing bay of parking spaces. The issue, however, is that this bay of parking spaces does not fall parallel to the established red-green axes.
For the appliances which will be installed in the parking spaces themselves, it was easy enough to create reference lines and dimension along the purple “perpendicular” inference line. However, we have some equipment outside of the parking bay for which these dimensions would also be beneficial.
How can I force the dimensions to display along a reference line which falls outside of the standard colored axes?
