We’ve been dimensioning the same way in AutoCAD software for what seems like 100 years. Now you can finally reduce steps and accelerate your dimensioning with the new and improved dimensioning tools in AutoCAD 2016 software. Learn how the new DIM command can change the way you create and modify dimensions. Instead of using different commands to create different types of dimensions, you will see how this single new tool anticipates the types of dimensions you want to create, eliminating steps and making you more productive than ever before. You will also learn how to automatically place dimensions on the proper layer and how to use the new DIM command to align dimensions. We will also look at best practices to optimize other tools to adjust dimensions. As Lord John Whorfin would say, “May I pass along my congratulations for your great interdimensional breakthrough.”
