Generally, we create dimension styles and then use that dimension style throughout our drawing, this ensures consistency of style in our drawing. But if you want to make the small change in dimension style so that it is restricted to only a few selected dimensions without altering complete dimension style then you can use dimension style overrides. By using these…

Datum feature symbol (shown in the image below) is used to specify datum geometries like plane and surface which act as a reference for measuring dimensions. AutoCAD supports many geometric dimensioning and tolerancing symbols within its feature control frame and you can easily add feature control frames using Tolerance option of AutoCAD dimensions panel but unfortunately, AutoCAD has no direct option of…

In mechanical drawings, information can’t be accurately conveyed without the use of tolerances. The most suitable way of adding tolerances and other dimensioning information is by the use of feature control frames. You can also add tolerances to individual dimension styles by modifying their properties. In this article, I will show you method of adding tolerance using dimension style and I will…

The parametric drawing is a method of making geometries with geometrical or dimensional constraints or restrictions. These constraints are applied to the geometry with respect to certain references or other geometries. Parametric drawings update itself if any one parameter is changed, this also helps in maintaining design intent. This feature of parametric drawing was introduced in 2010 version of AutoCAD. This…
