The TechDraw ExtensionCreateObliqueCoordDimension tool creates oblique coordinate dimensions: multiple evenly spaced dimensions starting from the same baseline.

On the right the created dimensions


  1. Optionally specify the cascade spacing with the TechDraw ExtensionSelectLineAttributes tool.
  2. Select three or more vertexes.
  3. The selection order of the first two vertexes determines the position of the baseline. If the vertex that is selected first is to the left of the second, the baseline is created at the leftmost vertex, else it is created at the rightmost vertex.
  4. The first two vertexes also define the direction.
  5. There are several ways to invoke the tool:
  6. Coordinate dimensions with centered dimension texts are created.
