Angular Dimension From 3 Vertices

Postby bejant » Mon Sep 24, 2018 3:08 pm

Is it possible to create an angular dimension like this (ignore the circled one):

If not, do you think I should create a ticket for it?

No - 2 straight edges only. I'll have to check if Dimensions can handle 3 references. Everything so far is only 1 or 2.

Yes, please. It will get lost in the pile otherwise.

From time to time we saw here people asking for Drawing+DrawingDimensioning WB. That's definitely over now.

I've been hearing that DD is better for a long time, but I've never seen a detailed comparison. If there is anybody out there with experience in both TD & DD, a "better/worse, missing, etc) feature comparison would be a big help to me.

Hi
This is only my opinion.
I think placement of views is easier with Drawing
With DD, I can place the lines of axes and change their appearance, and a line arrow for the text
on the other hand, I do not know how to modify the appearance of the hidden lines in the 2 cases
With DD we can add the tolerances = / - on the dimensions
In the 2 systems we can not change the numerical value of the dimensions, nor the symbols like the signs of diameter, Rays nor degree of angle
there is also no option to delete the decimal zero
This is not an exhaustive list
in attachment: the same drawing presented with the 2 systems
