iDim, ultrafast autocad dimensioning

Add dimension in autocad is one of the most boring task… To avoid it, and because I’m lazy, I made an autolisp application that add dimension to lines. I called it “idim” and I want to share it with you because it is very usefull.

Some considerations: The dimension will be in the current layer with the current dimension style. It will add dimensions only to line entities. It will try to detect ‘holes’ and add  a dimension to it.

Instructions: appload idim.vlx, type idim… select lines… go!

It’s on beta stage. In future versions it will let you choose offset and other variables.

      Thank you!.

      Yes it is a little autolisp program… autolisp is still useful!!

      If you need access to any variables (dim distance, etc…) I will probably add this options soon…
