Chapter 7. Dimensioning a Drawing
• Learn how to dimension objects
• Learn about ANSI standards and conventions
• Learn how to dimension different shapes and features
• Begin 3D dimensioning
Inventor uses two types of dimensions: model and drawing. Model dimensions are created as the model is being constructed and may be edited to change the shape of a model. Drawing dimensions can be edited, but the changes will not change the shape of the model. If the shape of a model is changed, the drawing dimensions associated with the revised surfaces will change to reflect the new values.
model dimension: A dimension created as a model is being constructed; it may be edited to change the shape of a model.
