Applied Parameters: Action=Explode | Object=Dimension
This command is used to convert a Dimension object back to its original set of primitive parts.
This command is accessed from the PCB Editor by choosing the Tools » Convert » Explode Dimension to Free Primitives command from the main menus.
After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and you will enter dimension explode mode. Position the cursor over the dimension you wish to explode then click or press Enter. A confirmation dialog will appear - click Yes to proceed. The dimension will revert to the various primitives from which it was made.
Continue converting further dimensions to their free primitives or right-click or press Esc to exit dimension explode mode.
- Although there is no actual command to regroup an exploded dimension, you can use the Undo command to achieve this.
