Hi Alick

If you would like to send me your model at support@graitec.co.uk I'll take a look at it and see what's happening. Unfortunately it is difficult to see exactly where you are snapping to in the video.

Regards

Hi Alick,

 To create a  dimension on a curved beam:

  1. Select the Arc icon located on the Labels and Dimensions tab

  2. Choose the arc tool on the Parametric dimensions panel
  3. Select the arc then type “3p” then enter

  4. Select the left endpoint of the arc using the node snap then the right end using node

  5. Select the midpoint of the circle using the nearest snap mode

  6. Now select the right endpoint of the arc using the node snap then the left end using node

  7. Your Radial dimension is displayed automatically

I hope this helps

Regards,
