continuous dimension autocad
Command format:
Command line: Dimcontinue(DCO)
Menu: [Dimension]>[Continued(C)]
Toolbar:[Dimension]>[Continued Dimension]
Continued Dimension Command can create a series of dimensions end to end. Each continued dimension started from the second extension line of the dimension. Just as the Dimbaseline, you have to create a linear, angular, or ordinate dimension as the baseline, which is used to ensure the extension to the previous dimension for the Dimcontinue command.
Steps:
The Dimcontinue command is similar with the Dimbaseline command. Dimesion the distance between point A, B,C,D.
 1)Command: dimlinear
Execute dimlinear command
 2)Specify an extension line origin or (Select): (pick point A)
Specify a second extension line origin: (pick point B)
  Multiline text(M)/Text(T)/Angel(A)/ Horizontal(H)/Vertical(V)/Rotation(R):
  Specify a point above the segment AB;
  Specify the position of dimension line
  Annotate dimention text-30
   Finish dimlinear command
  
3)Command: Dimecontinue
   Execute Dimecontinue command
4) Specify a second extension line origin or [Undo(U)/ Select(S)]: (pick point D)
Specify the location point of the dimension line.
Annotate dimension text-70
Specify a second extension line origin or [Undo(U)/ Select(S)]
