Tiny little line on other side of diameter dimension

They appear in the drawing below, a little extender on the other side of the diameter.

Does anyone know how to get rid of them? I tried searching for this but could not find it.

  • Please help. I checked with my AutoCAD buddy and it's pretty easy to do in AutoCAD. How do you do it with BricsCAD?

  • Property Palette > Lines & Arrows > Arrow : NONE ?

  • In the dimstyle change the 'Arrow and text fit' setting to 'Text only' and re-apply the style to the dimension.

    You need to adjust your diameters such that it shouldn't overlap with each other. you can ask for other professional services related to cad here cad drafting services

  • In AutoCAD, it's Ext Line Offset that does the trick. It seems to do nothing for circle diameters.

    Thanks for the help, Roy! I tried "Text only". Although that removes the lines, it also moves the arrows to the outside of the circle.

    To get the two arrows, I have to use: "Dim Line Forced", which according to the manual, "Forces the dimension line to be always drawn; forces leaders to be drawn with the DimDiameter and DimRadius commands."

    So maybe BricsCAD doesn't support this? Should I look into another CAD package? Or maybe get the drawing tuned in AutoCAD by my buddy at work and then submit it as my assignment....

  • Michael, I couldn't find "Property Palette > Lines & Arrows > Arrow : NONE ?"

    The stuff I see is on the DIMSTYLE page (here: )

    Thanks for the help, though!

    Yes, you can define all in a Style.
    I just did a quick test with one radial dimension and looked
    what I could change in Object Property Panel when selected.
    You can set the same settings for the Style and all Elements
    using it.

    Also I thought your problem were these very little hard to notice
    arrow heads. Seems that was wrong and you meant the little
    extension at the other end near the numbers.

    You should be aware that the username of the person who last saved a dwg is stored in the file. Apart from that, having someone else work on, and finish, your homework assignment is probably never a good idea.

    Regarding the possible incompatibility with AutoCAD: Please send in a Support Request (attaching your friend's file).
