I am trying to dimension an Arc Length, and I am keep getting full circle extension lines , instead of half circle. I have attached a drawing for ready ref. Is there anyway I can get rid of full circle and just have dimension line for arc.
Dave,, Try selecting the outer arc (if that is the one you want to measure) then from the sketch toolbar convert entities. Then you can measure the arc length. I used your model from your other question. I expect it is the same.
Thank you Dennis, it worked.
Can't open your file here at home so...
If it's an actual arc, start the smart dimension tool then ctrl+click on each and point and the arc to get the arc length.
You need to post the sldprt file as well.
As Jeff said, with the Ctrl key held down, select each end point then the arc to get an arc length dimension.
There is no need to hold down the Ctrl key, Anna.
Ahhh.... I was thinking one needed to hold down another key while selecting all the elements.
just select the two endpoint first the select the arc
