Helper parts

 
 

The numbers are 24 LDUs (LDrawUnits) high, corrisponding to the height of a brick 1x1. The straight horizontal arrows and dotted lines are scaled to match the width of a 1x1 plate/brick, while the vertical ones are bound to the heights of 1x1 bricks. Just download the helper parts and store them in a special folder in your LDraw parts directory named UNOFFICIAL\HELPER.
To include the parts in MLCad's parts library tree you have to tell MLCad to scan this folder at start-up. The exact syntax for the MLCad.ini file entry can be found here.
 
Use the matrix (either in MLCad or a text editor like LDDP) to scale the numbers. A matrix like: 2 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 2 would double the measures, while 0 0 3 0 3 0 -3 0 0 would triple it and rotate it at 90° at the same time.

NOTE! The arrows are designed in a two-dimensional style and they might not show up in an orthogonal view (like MLCad's two-dimensional panes), when looking from a specific angle. They are also optimized for an isometric 3D view and have to be adjusted to custom view angles.
