 Dimensioning 3D solids in layout viewports.

I am having some difficulties when dimensioning 3D solids in a layout viewport.
Most notably, circular entities. ie, radius, diameter, etc. Angular dimensions too . It doesn't work at all.
Am I missing something? Is there an extra tool I've not found?
All other dimensions seem to work out ok,

Also, I've noticed that when dimensioning over a layout viewport which displays
an isometric view, the dimension is often wrong! (Indicated "Shorter" than reality).

Currently using, Vernum 2010.06.30.

Does the 2011 latest version handle any of these issues better?

PS. It won't print the shaded/rendered view, only 3D Wireframe?!?!

Did you mean you trying to make radius dimension to a 3D solid, like cylinder? If so, ZWCAD doesn't support dimension to 3D solid, especailly it can't recognize the circular object on 3D solid.


and I didn't find the problem of "Shorter", I dimensioned in both space with same value. could you be specific on this problem?

PS: yeah, ZWCAD doesn't support shade plot currently... We know a lot of people are asking for it, and we are still trying to.
