Is there a parameter archive?

Is there a document that shows what all of the dimensions is, across the program? I'm a new user and finding myself getting lost a litte, and occasionally struggling to find an obvious dimension that I swear I had earlier. Right now, I'm trying to find the chainring / chainstay clearance dimension and can't for the life of me. I've tried searching to no use.


Thanks in advance!  

Parameter archive

I regret that the only full listing of available dimensions is the Dimensions dialog box itself. In the attached screen capture you can see how the chainstay clearance at the widest point of the tire can be shown. However, chain stay and chainring clearance is not available as a standard dimension. It can be drawn in as a user created dimension. This option is described at: bikecad.ca/user_dimensions.

Although it may take a while to go through all the available dimensions and arrange them on a drawing in the way you like, once you've taken the time to do that, you don't need to repeat that work. That work can be saved as a dimension template. This is described at: bikecad.ca/templates_in_bikecadpro. I recommend saving a few dimension templates for different applications.


Thanks Brent - I'll dive in

Thanks Brent - I'll dive in and see how I go. I'm guessing I can save various curved tube profiles as templates too - that's my next big challenge. Once I've nailed the curved tubes to mirror the measurements from the tubing manufacturer I'm good to go with #1.
