How do you break dimension lines that cross one another? I've read you can't break dimension/annotation lines that cross, but you CAN break dimension/dimension lines that cross.
Oh.. 2d dimensions in a drawing..
Click on the dimension(s) that you want to break and then on the properties click the Leaders tab then check the box for break lines.
Hope this helps!!!
I did that, but I can't seem to get a horizontal extension line to break over a vertical extension line.. Only horizontal lines that cross horizontal arrowheads breaks.. Am I doing something wrong?
There is a setting that applied ASME rule to only break extention lines around arrows of other dimensions and leaders. That setting is found in Doucment Properties in Dimensions, called "Break only around dimension arrows". With "Break only around dimension arrows" turned off, you can break around any portion of a dimension.
Technially, both ISO and ASME standards state to never break extension lines or dimension lines. The ASME standard offers one except, as noted above.
Thanks for posting your comment, as I was going to do the same. Let me repeat that the ASME exception for breaking around arrowheads applies only to extension lines. Dimension lines are not to be broken.
Thanks guys. Very informative comments.
