Benefits and Description

You can dimension blends also if the curve is represented as a B-spline in a drawing, e.g. affected by a taper operation. The radius dimension will show the constant blend radius of the 3D model.

This new capability allows the user to define radius dimensions on blends independent of the view and blend curve representation in an easy and efficient way.
