When it comes learning the art and science of CATIA Drafting Dimensions, it is not that difficult provided that you know the basics well enough and are both willing and able to learn all the more that is.

First and foremost, in order to initiate any and all drawings with reference to learning how to create CATIA Drafting Dimensions, you should be aware of the basic protocols of CATIA as well as a working knowledge of CATIA Drafting as well.

In this case, the need of the hour is to click on the dimensions icon on the toolbar of the same name.

In this case, you will first need to click on the first element that you will see in this view. For example, it may well be a circle. Now if you need this circle, you should then proceed to click onto a second element as well that may well already be present in the view.
In this case, the erstwhile dimension (nature and) type is automatically defined as per the aforementioned selected elements already present in the Tools Palette.

In this particular step, the original options that are already present in the Tools Palette will also allow you to be able to position the CATIA Drafting dimensions of your choice while using any one of the following different modes: That is either a ‘projected or for that matter a ‘Forced mode’.  As a matter of fact, many, if not most of these options are also really available in the contextual menu of your CATIA Drafting software.

Here, it is pertinent to note that during the initial CATIA Drafting dimensions creation step, you can also switch in between one symbol or for that matter, even dual symbols dimension by the simple expedient of selecting or deselecting the ‘1’ symbol in the actual contextual menu.

However, once your desired dimension has been created, then it is imperative that you must also use the Properties menu itself so to specify whether you are interested in using either one or both the symbols.

This toolbar is situated at the bottom right of the screen. If you cannot see it properly, just unlock it.

Apart from the above, it is also possible for you to quickly and easily format the various dimensions by selecting the many dimensions that you might want to change as well.  Now that you know the basics, you can go on to greater things.
