DimensionPatrol 1.2 for AutoCAD released

DimensionPatrol 1.2 by JTB World has been released on Autodesk Exchange Apps.

  • Dimension Patrol highlights dimensions in drawings for which the user has customized the dimension text and thus this plug-in helps to ensure the quality of the drawings.
  • Once loaded, the DIMPATROL command can be used to turn on (and off) the highlighting of potentially problematic dimensions: dimensions whose text has been overridden and therefore may not match the actual dimension.
  • To change the color used to highlight the dimension, use the DIMPATROLCOLOR command or for command line usage -DIMPATROLCOLOR. To change the transparency used, use the DIMPATROLTRANSPARENCY command.

Transparency set to 70%.

Version 1.2 news: DIMPATROLCOLOR now shows a dialog box to allow color selection as well as the limitation of color 1-7 is removed. -DIMPATROLCOLOR is added for command line usage. DIMPATROLTRANSPARENCY is a new command added. Settings are remembered between AutoCAD sessions. Trial and Purchase versions created.

DimensionPatrol trial can be used to see if this app fits your needs and when ready to purchase visit DimensionPatrol and you can get a license for 2 USD.
