# How do you reference a dimension?

## How do you reference a dimension?

There is no GD symbol for a reference dimension, instead reference dimensions are shown on a drawing enclosed in parentheses. The alternate method is to follow the dimension with “Reference” or “Ref”. The use of “Ref” or enclosing the dimension inside parentheses are by far the most common notations used.

## What are the 3 types of drawing dimensions?

The basic types of dimensioning are linear, radial, angular, ordinate, and arc length.

What does a reference dimension look like?

A Reference Dimension is a dimension given to any features that are just for reference – or visualization purposes. These are called out on a drawing using parenthesis (i.e., 5.125). It also could be a dimension that is described on another drawing or elsewhere. Either way, the dimension does not get inspected.

### How do you use basic dimensions?

Basic dimensions are used to establish the “true profile” which a profile tolerance will then control. So if a profile tolerance is applied to a hole, the diameter MUST be a basic dimension. There are two methods of dimensioning described in Y14. 5: rectangular coordinate dimensioning and geometric tolerancing.

### When should a dimension be basic?

What are the method of dimensioning on a drawing?

Parallel Dimensioning When the number of dimensions is measured in the same direction from a common surface or line. The method of indicating all the dimensions from the same feature is called parallel dimensioning. The dimension lines are parallel to each other and equally spaced.

## What is a datum dimension?

A datum dimension is a group design object. It allows for the dimensioning of a linear distance of a collection of objects, relative to a single reference object. The dimension value in each case is therefore the distance between each reference object and the ‘base’, measured in the default units.

## Where do we use basic dimensions?

What is a zero basic dimension?

(k) A zero basic dimension applies where axes, center planes, or surfaces are shown coincident on a drawing, and geometric tolerances establish the relationship among the features.

### What are the dimensions of a bird house?

To attract the species you desire you will need to construct your bird house with specific sizes for the box itself, entrance holes and the species desired height placement above ground. Using the correct bird house dimensions will also help to exclude undesirable species, i.e. house sparrows and starlings.

### Why are reference dimensions important in a drawing?

Reference dimensions are useful for clarification purposes. Their inclusion can make it clear how another dimension should be inspected or manufactured. Other times they are included to make the drawing easier to read.

## What to look for in a good quality Birdhouse?

Discount stores carry inexpensive birdhouses, which usually prove to be examples of getting what we pay for: wood that’s unsuitable for long-lasting use, staples instead of screws, plastics (which don’t “breathe”), and lack of an easy opening for cleaning.
