ordinate dimensioning autocad
Command format:
 Command line: Dimordinate(DIMORD)
 Menu: [Dimension]>[Ordinate(O)]
 Toolbar:
 Ordinate dimensions measure the horizontal or vertical distance from an origin point(use the absolute dimension) along a simple leader.
Steps:
Dimension the ordinate of center A and B of the two round. As shown in the graph 9-25.
  Steps:
  Command: Dimordinate
Execute Dimordinate command
  Specify the dimension point in the ordinate pickpoint A
  Specify the endpoint of dimension or
  [Xdatum(X))/ Staggered (S)/ Ydatum(Y)/ Mtext(M)/ Text(T)/ Angle(A)/]:
  Pickpoint B
  Specify the position of dimension and finish the dimension
  Annotate dimension text-14.78; prompt the dimension value
  
  Command: Dimordinate
Execute Dimordinate command
  Specify the dimension point in the ordinate pickpoint A
  Specify the endpoint of dimension or
  [Xdatum(X))/ Staggered (S)/ Ydatum(Y)/ Mtext(M)/ Text(T)/ Angle(A)/]:
  Pickpoint C
  Specify the position of dimension and finish the dimension
  Annotate dimension text-17,51; prompt the dimension value
  
  Lists of prompts:
  Specify the endpoint of dimension: Specify the point and then the system will determine to measure the X ordinate of Y ordinate according to the location and ordinate differences. If the Y ordinate owns a larger ordinate difference, then measure the X ordinate. Otherwise, measure the Y ordinate.
  X datum(X): Measure the X ordinate.
  Y datum(Y): Measure the Y ordinate.
  Mtext(M): Edit the designated dimension text
  Text(T): Customize the dimension text at the Command prompt ”Dimension text (current value)”.
   Angle(A): Modify the angle of the dimension text.
Notes:
The Dimordinate can dimension the horizontal or vertical coordinate automatically according to the direction of extension line.
The dimension annotate the vertical distance from the origin to the base point(The origin of the coordinate system). The ordinate dimension includes a x-y coordinate system and an extension line. X coordinate dimension represent the distance in X axis direction while the Y coordinate dimension represent the distance in Y axis direction.
