When it comes to learning the art and science of CATIA Drafting Dimensions, then you can rest assured that learning the same is not difficult, provided, that you know the basics well enough.

First and foremost, in order to initiate any sort of drawings and models with reference to learning how to create CATIA’s trademark and unique dimensions, you should also be aware of (at the very least) the most basic protocols of CATIA as well as a working knowledge of CATIA Drafting right from the beginning.

In this case, all you have to do is click on the dimensions icon on the toolbar of the same name.

After that, you will first need to click on the first element that you will see in this view. For example, it may well be a square. Now if you need this square, you should then proceed to click onto any second element as well, that might already be present in the view. Here, the erstwhile dimension (nature and) type are almost automatically defined as per the aforementioned selected elements that are already present in the suite’s Tools Palette.

In this particular step, the original options that are already available in the Tools Palette of the CATIA software suite will also allow you to effectively position the CATIA Drafting dimensions of your choice while simultaneously using various other different modes: That is either a ‘projected’ or, for that matter, a ‘Forced mode’. Here, many, if not most of these options are also quite easily available in the contextual menu of your CATIA drafting software.

It is pertinent to note here that during the initial CATIA Drafting dimensions creation step, it is possible to easily switch in between one symbol or for that matter, even multiple symbol dimension by the fairly simple expedient of selecting or deselecting the symbol in the actual contextual menu.

Apart from the above, it is now also very possible for you to quickly format all of the various different dimensions that are available, just by selecting all those dimensions that you might want to change as well. Now that you know the basics, you can move on to the more advanced options.
