AutoCAD: How to Break Dimension Lines and AutoSpacing Tool – 2 Minute Tuesday

Hey Everybody,

Brandon here back with another new 2 minute Tuesday! I think I almost got this one to be around the 2-minute mark for the tutorial portion, so yay me!

Anyways, back to the video, in today’s video, I go over 2 cool dimensioning tools that can save you time and help make your drawings instantly look cleaner and more professional!

The video shows you step by step how to go about adding a break to a dimension line when it crosses another object or dimension. I also go over how to use the autospacing tool for dimension allowing you to automatically match the spacing between a group of dims.

Check out the video below:
