- [Instructor] In this video we're going to…add dimensions to our floor plan.…But all of the techniques that I show you…can be used in any view, so I'm going to be…working in a floor plan but it works…just fine in other views as well.…Now we've done dimensions before,…we've done them largely as a tool…to help us edit our model…and they work great for that,…but the same dimension elements that we used…to create references for moving geometry around…are also the ones we would use when we want…to actually print out the dimensions for our document set.…So, that means that when I go to my quick axis toolbar here,…I'm clicking that same aligned dimension tool,…or typing d + i, to get started.…
Now what I want to do here is just sort of run through…each of the options that are available…when creating permanent dimensions.…So to get started, I want to zoom in maybe over here…on the right hand side of the plan,…and I'll just highlight one of my existing walls here,…move the mouse, highlight the second one,…and then click in empty white space to create the dimension.…
