Dim style settings - metric environment

The following settings will produce reasonable dimensions in the metric environment.

Variable
Value
Overall scale 100
Precision 0
Text height 4.0
Offset from line 2.0
Arrow extension 500
Offset from origin 250
Center mark 3.0
Arrow size 6.0
   

We like to set the colour of the dimension and the extension line to grey as shown below. For convenience, we create a named style (metric) rather than editing the dim style standard.
