Dimensioning Tools

The dimensioning tools in RSPile allow you to measure and display length, X dimension, Y dimension and angle in the Plan View

Dimension Length, X, Y

To dimension the length, X distance, or Y distance between any two points in the Plan View:

  1. Select Dimension Length, Dimension X or Dimension Y from the toolbar or the Add Tool sub-menu of the Tools menu.
  2. Select two points between which you would like to measure the distance. You can enter the points graphically with the mouse, or enter x,y coordinates in the prompt line.
  3. TIP: the Snap options allow you to easily snap exactly to vertices, boundaries, or extension lines of vertices or boundaries.

  4. As you move the mouse, the dimension (length, X distance or Y distance) between the two points will be displayed. When you are satisfied with the location of the dimension tool, click the mouse and it will be added to the Plan View.

Dimension Angle

To dimension an angle on the Plan View:

  1. Select Dimension Angle from the toolbar or the Add Tool sub-menu of the Tools menu.
  2. Enter two points defining a reference direction, from which you would like to measure an angle.
  3. As you move the mouse, the angle formed between the first two points and the current cursor location (third point) will be displayed. When the desired angular measurement is displayed, click the mouse and the angle dimension tool will be added to the view.

TIP: after a dimension tool has been added, it can be formatted, moved, re-sized or deleted. For example, you can specify the number of decimal places, or even replace the dimension value with customized text. See the Edit Tools Overview topic for details.
