A dimension style is a collection of settings that control how dimensions appear on the drawing. Every dimension has a dimension style assigned to it when it is created. The default dimension style is named "Standard". You can change the settings for this or any other dimension style and save them as a new name in the list of styles.

There are three main types of dimension styles that you can choose from:

  • Standard: This is the default type of dimension style that you will see when you insert a dimension in your drawing. The lines are usually thick and the text is not filled with any color.
  • Profile: This type of dimension style allows you to show a profile view of an object in your drawing.
  • Isometric: This type of dimension style allows you to show an isometric view of an object in your drawing. This means that it will only be able to show one side at a time, but it will be able to illustrate depth and height more clearly than the other two types.

There are many advantages to using dimension styles. First of all, they are incredibly easy to use. You just select the desired dimension style from the ribbon and then apply it to the shape that you want. Another advantage is that there are so many different styles to choose from, so you can find one that suits your needs best. And last but not least, you can create custom dimension styles if none of the pre-made ones work for you!

  • Right-click the dimension feature class in the Catalog tree.
  • Select Properties from the context menu.
  • Select the Dimensions tab from the drop-down menu.
  • Right-click the dimension style you wish to use as the default and select Set as Default.
  • Select Set as Default from the drop-down menu.
  • Press the OK button.

Dimension styles can be used in a variety of ways. You can use them to create an object that looks like it is protruding from the page, or you can make it look like it is recessed into the page. You can also use dimension styles to create a 3D effect on objects that are flat on the page, such as text boxes or shapes.
