Rapid Dimension specifically for Sheet Metal...


Hi all,


I was wondering if any of you experience the rapid dimension as a bridge too far;

Rapid dimension looks at the selected objects and makes an interpretation. Based on that it will give you a distance, radius, diameter, angle, etc.


We have daily irritation/frustration when rapid dimension interprets bend radii where you cannot see the radius itself and still it's presenting us a radius dimension. This might be interesting for axles, tubes etc but NOT for sheet metal parts.

Or break corners with a radius; same happens here. In a view where you don't see the radius, I DON'T want to get a radius as proposed dimension.


So might it not be intelligent to have a sheet metal specific Rapid Dimension?


This really is a daily frustration that makes using the rapid dimension partially worthless.


Any thoughts on this subject?
