Drawing Measurements

Do you need to measure a drawing to quickly determine how much material you need to order? Or perhaps you’ve identified a potential design issue and need to ensure that the proposed size meets your needs. Using the new drawing measurement tools, you can now perform measurement annotations on your drawings.

Start by calibrating your tool to set your default scale.
