Error of dim change in AutoCAD (Error of dim change when you move drawing, dim is changed when moving, dimension error in CAD). Error of dim change in AutoCAD is the error when you have to move one or more objects to other position in the same drawing or copy object to other drawing, dim line will change as well. Details:

Dim line will be longer or shorter.
Dim line will be transfigured, at wrong position.

For example:

You may be embarrassed after drawing with this picture

In fact, this is not error, but is the result of some options we did in Option dialog box. Let us help you the way to overcome error of dim change in AutoCAD. This method is one of error collections which 100% CAD drawers get in the chapter of tips for quickly drawing of Advanced AutoCAD course. The method is as follows:

  • At working model, you enter OP command to call Option dialog box:

ο OP => Enter
ο OPTION dialog box appears. You click to select User Preferences card

At Associative Dimensionning frame, Click to cancel mark in Make new dimensions associative bar.

Next, you work with Dimassoc variable (in fact, dimension objects on drawing are controlled by Dimassoc variable)

Command: Dimassoc ↵

  • Enter: 0 => Create exploded dimension (xploded)
  • Enter: 1 => Create dimension without linking to the selected object
  • Enter: 2 => Create dimension linking to the selected object (culprit causes error of dim change)

Here you need to use variable 1

The created dimensions before using these settings will still link to objects, to resolve this problem thoroughly; you need to use DDA command and select all dimension objects in the drawing then press Enter.

Command: DDA ↵

  • Select all objects => enter
