The TechDraw AngleDimension tool adds an angular dimension to a View. The dimension shows the interior angle between two straight edges.

Measuring the angle between two straight edges


  1. Select two straight edges. The geometry may be selected in the 3D view or in the drawing.
  2. If you have selected geometry in the 3D view: add the correct TechDraw View to the selection by selecting it in the Tree view.
  3. There are several ways to invoke the tool:
    • Press the Insert Angle Dimension button.
    • Select the TechDraw → Dimensions → Insert Angle Dimension option from the menu.
  4. A dimension is added to the View.
  5. The dimension may be dragged to the desired position.
  6. If needed, add tolerances as described on this page.
