Saved in: Drawing
Initial value: 2
Controls the associativity of dimension objects.
|0||Creates exploded dimensions. There is no association between the various elements of the dimension. The lines, arcs, arrowheads, and text of a dimension are drawn as separate objects.|
|1||Creates non-associative dimension objects. The elements of the dimension are formed into a single object. If the definition point on the object moves, the dimension value is updated.|
|2||Creates associative dimension objects. The elements of the dimension are formed into a single object, and one or more definition points of the dimension are coupled with association points on geometric objects. If the association point on the geometric object moves, the dimension location, orientation, and value is updated.|
The DIMASSOC setting is not stored in a dimension style.
