What Are Different Methods Of Dimensioning?

Answer : There are two methods of dimensioning:

    Unidirectional system: All the dimensions are placed in one direction only. These are normally put from left to right whether written on a horizontal/vertical/inclined dimension.
    Aligned system: The dimensions are placed perpendicular to the dimension line. On a horizontal dimension, it is horizontal while on a vertical dimension, it is in the vertical direction.

Aligned system of dimensioning is more common.
