Overall dimensions different that all inside dimensions added up

Recommended Posts

I am in the middle of working on a bathroom. If you add up the interior dimensions running down the right side of the drawing (walls are 4.5" - don't include perimeter walls) it adds up to 153.5" - why is the overall measurement showing one inch less? 

 

I have deleted this dimension and did CAD interior dimensions again, and it still comes up an inch short. What is going on and how do I fix it?post-5277-0-44464100-1451486614_thumb.png

Post the plan for the best answer. Make sure it's closed first.


 


Check your Dimension Defaults to see where the dimensions are measuring from.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

Select all dimension lines and zoom in to see the locations to where the ends of them actually point.  Make sure they point to the location that you think they should.  You may be able to adjust an end point by dragging it to a new location (e.g., from outside wall board to inside wall board, or vice versa).

 

Good luck. :)
