Pointer to an array of 3 doubles (x,y,z); dimension point


Pointer to an array of 3 doubles (x,y,z); unit vector that specifies the direction of the ordinate dimension


Pointer to an array of 3 doubles (x,y,z); extension line start point


Pointer to an array of 3 doubles (x,y,z); extension line end point


Pointer to an array of 3 doubles (x,y,z); unit vector and specifies the orientation of the text; for example, (1, 0, 0) results in horizontal text read from left to right


Pointer to an array of 3 doubles (x,y,z); position of text


Value for the ordinate dimension


Inclination angle of the text in radians (character slant)


Text height in meters

Return Value

Pointer to the IDisplayDimension object created


SolidWorks creates this type of dimension between the two points you specify. It has no relation to your geometry.
