Dimension objects

I am trying to draw dimensions between columns of uneven heights. The output is showing dimension in certain angle. I need to draw them horizontal, parallel to given line input.

Can anyone help me with this one? Thanks!!

You could try dimensioning to the internal references of the Columns instead and see if that corrects your issue. :wink:

I am getting this error when i selected two objects from the model, i have never used python script. Is there anything i do need to edit?


Can you post a link to download a copy of the families you are trying to dimension?

Here are the files.

I have tried your test files and cannot replicate the issue. Can you post a screen grab of the elements you are dimensioning again, or perhaps a stripped out file version so I can test in the actual instance location?
