LayOut dimension lines


#1

When placing dimensions in LayOut on objects that are in perspective view, the dimension lines do not run parallel to the edges I am dimensioning. Is there a way to run the dim line parallel to its associated edge?

Unfortunately the Dimension tool in LayOut does not follow the perspective in the model yet. I keep hoping it’ll be coming. It might come now with PIDs but not yet. You can either add dimensions in SU to follow perspective or there are ways to make your own dimensions in LO that do.

Thank you for your reply.

Dave, can you share some of those ways to draw dimensions in LayOut that align with perspective views? I’d sure love to be able to do that, and leave clunky Sketchup dimensioning entirely behind.
