The TechDraw ExtensionCreateVertCoordDimension tool creates vertical 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 below the second, the baseline is created at the lowest vertex, else it is created at the highest vertex.
  4. There are several ways to invoke the tool:
  5. Coordinate dimensions with centered dimension texts are created.
