Extend dimension lines to a bounding box

Hello All,

There are lines in different directions inside a bounding box of which I would like to draw dimensions.

The linear dimension component let’s me offset all the lines in the same length:

What I would like to do is to get the dimension lines of each curve aligned to the closest edge of the bounding box like this:

any ideas how I can achieve this?

Your GH file doesn’t have a “bounding box”. Your image shows an outer box that is considerably larger than a Bounding Box ?

Apologies for not describing it properly, it’s not a bounding box, it’s just a box around it!

Hasty, perhaps room for improvement?

Thank you Joseph, this is good enough for me at the moment. I’ll have to take this further and will share that over here

Where will you take it? :laughing:
