Specifying Continuous Inclined Line for Dimensioning

Tips & Tricks

In RFEM and RSTAB, you can now also specify an inclined continuous line for dimensioning. You can find this function in the toolbar or in the menu “Insert” -> “Dimensions”.

To create a continuous dimension, just select the elements to be dimensioned (nodes, members, etc.) one by one. In addition, you can specify the dimensioning reference in the opened dialog box. You have the following options:
Length = The dimensioning length represents the dimensions in the direction of the vector of the first two points.
X, Y, Z = The dimensioning line shows the dimensions in the direction of the global X, Y, Z axis.

By selecting the elements one by one, you create a continuous dimensioning line spanning all spaces. This dimensioning line can later be selected and manipulated as a complete unit.
