Problem with the parametric “Dimensions” in the SketchUp


#1

How to get “Dimensions” to work in different planes?
Maybe there alternative component or plugin.
I work in the SketchyPhysics.
Link the plugin “SketchyPhysics” - http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=536443#p536443

Did you try using the AxisTool to temporarily align the model axis with the rotated component instance ?


#3

Temporarily yes, ok. But, the position of the object changes dynamically because I work in SketchyPhysics


#4

Ufortunately, the parameters “Dimensions” changes dynamically good run only one planes.


#5

… then create a group, and put the dimension and the component instance inside the group together. The SP should rotate both together.


#6

in this case, the “dimension” will not change. It will be static.


#7

I need dynamics. I want to see the distance in movement and in the space.


#8

I do not have any problems in SU2015 without Sketchy Physics. The dimension rotates with the object it is attached, and changes size dynamically as I scale or stretch the object… These are called “Associative dimensions”.

Sketchy Physics must have broke something.

Ah… I see. You are going between separate objects.

Yes I think this may be a known issue.
