    Dimensioning Curved Objects in Section

    Did you know one of the new features of Revit 2019 is the ability to dimension curved objects in section?  On previous versions of Revit, if you had a piece of curved geometry shown in section, there was no great way to dimension to the outer edge that is being cut in that plane.  I used to use the old Detail line or Reference plane and snap the dimension to that, but that was never exactly accurate. Now, all you have to do is start the Aligned Dimension command the Annotation Tab and tab key (on keyboard) to click on the face that needs a witness line and click.  See below.
