A brief summary of the 4th Let’s talk Sketchup episode.


  • place your dimension on a new layer
  • set the length of the extension lines not the gap
  • drag the dimension text to the desired position
  • override the dimension text if needed

and from my own experience

  • moving and aligning dimension lines is easiest by scaling
  • double click the next reference point to place continuous auto aligned dimension
