Space Dimensions With DimSpace

With the DimSpace command, you simply select your baseline dimensions, then use this command to evenly space them so they look great!

(In case you didn’t know, the dimensions should be spaced 3/8″ apart)

Here’s the sequence:

  • Command: DimSpace
  • Select base dimension:
  • Select dimensions to space: (Select the rest of the dimensions.)
  • Enter value or [Auto] < Auto >: (AutoCAD selects a value to space them, or you can input your own specific value.)

Spacing Value Tip:
You can use a spacing value of 0 (zero) to align the dimension lines of selected linear and angular dimensions end to end.

AutoLisp Tip:
If your like me, you want to automate the process as much as possible. This syntax will automatically input the distance for you. The only negative to this, is you can only select one dimension at a time instead of windowing multiple.
