Creating a technical document may require overall dimensions.
How do I add dimensions to my document in inches or feet and inches?
I guess I just need to make a line drawing in Solidworks and export the data to make a tech sheet.
-Make some sense. But now my manual's cohesiveness will not be there. Its going to look stupid.
I would suggest using one of the Measurement tools in the Author tab. You can select multiple items to dimension between using the linear length option. Then set your units in the document properties, and set the overall display of the dimension using the properties.
