DimensionPatrol

The DimensionPatrol plugin helps you identify AutoCAD dimensions that have been manually overridden rather than containing the automatic measurement information. Potentially erroneous dimensions are highlighted in the chosen color (the default being red), for easy identification and correction.

This plugin was first published as an ADN Plugin of the Month: http://labs.autodesk.com/utilities/ADN_plugins. The plugin has been provided with the complete source code needed to build the application, with the intention of encouraging users of Autodesk software to use programming to tailor the products they use to their specific business needs.

More information regarding this plugin can also be found on Kean Walmsley's blog about AutoCAD programming, Through the Interface: http://blogs.autodesk.com/through-the-interface.

Great utility

4

We may just make this a standard tool because incorrect dimensions have lost us money in the past. My suggestion for improvement is to make the highligh color nonprinting, then the utility could be left on all the time highlighting overriden dimensions.

Very useful. Thanx.

Why restrict colors to basic ones? Choosing a transparency level would be nice and useful.
