ArchLand00044.pngCreating Elevation Benchmarks 

Use the Elevation Benchmark tool to indicate the height of an object in an elevation drawing. Two elevation benchmark styles are available: ISO and US.


To create an elevation benchmark:

  1. Click the Elevation Benchmark tool from the Dims/Notes tool set.

  2. Click to place the object in the drawing, and click again to set the length and rotation.

The first time you use the tool in a file, a properties dialog box opens. Set the default properties, and click OK. The properties can be edited from the Object Info palette.


After creation, multiple elevation benchmark objects can be aligned and distributed with the Align/Distribute Leader Lines command; see Aligning and Distributing Leader Lines.
