I want to create a dimension from the start of a structural beam to a detail line that’s perpendicular to the beam like in the image below:
I tried using the node Dimension.ByElements and input the beam and detail line. The issue that I’m running into is that the node measures from the analytical line of the beam but I’m trying to dimension along the same line so the dimension doesn’t get created.
The only work around that I thought of is to just create another detail line at the start of the beam and dimension from that instead, which I’d rather not do. Is there any other solution to this?
