Subject: Creating angular dimensions



Angular dimensions annotate the angle measured between two lines. You can also dimension an angle by selecting an angle vertex and two endpoints. After you create an angular dimension, you can add a baseline dimension or a continued dimension. An angular baseline dimension inserts an additional dimension from a common first extension line origin of a previous angular dimension. An angular continued dimen­sion continues an angular dimension from the second extension line of a previous angular dimension.       

To dimension an angle encompassed by an arc    

   1   Do one of the following to choose Angular ():     

   On the ribbon, choose Home > Angular (in Annotation) or Annotate > Angular (in Dimensions).

   On the menu, choose Dimensions > Angular.

   On the Dimensioning toolbar, click the Angular tool.

   Type dimangular and then press Enter.    

   2   Select the arc.

   3   Specify the dimension arc location.        

 

To dimension the angle subtended by an arc, select the arc (A), and then specify the dimension arc location (B).

 

Result.
