Angle Dimension

pCon.planner offers dimensioning of angles using either three points or two lines. The latter is particularly suitable if there are no details on the intersection point of the angle.

The following images show the application of the tool for dimensioning the angle using three points (left-hand image) and two lines (right-hand image).
