Association Lines

The dimensions that you place in a 2D drawing or sheet model may get difficult to locate to the dimensioned element when viewed in 3D. In such cases, virtual or dummy association lines are automatically displayed between the elements and the dimensions. These association lines have a dot-dashed line style and are displayed for associated dimensions and notes.

Note: Association lines are displayed only when you view annotations by turning on the Display Sheet Annotations icon in a 3D design model. These lines are not displayed when you publish or print a file.

Left: Dimensions placed in a sheet model. Right: Association line displayed along a dimension in the 3D design model.
