Here we go, the first Beta version with the Dimension tool. Still very basic, but more features are to come. Please try the Beta 27.7 (available in the Beta section in your Creative Cloud Desktop application), test the tool and give the team your feedback here in comments. and refer to roadmap to see what will be added later.

Very basic CAD tools built in to illustrator would make Illustrator even more amazing. Tools such as the ability to change the dimension of simple shapes (length of line, radius/diameter of a circle, etc) after it has been drawn and then the ability to constrain it. Also, placing automatic dimensions (linear and angular) and measuring would be sweet tools. Sometimes I need my shape or lines to be a certain length or constrained to a certain angle and I have no way of doing this easily at the moment from within illustrator. Currently, I'm importing a dxf file from CAD software and it still gets hosed up. It's time consuming and I'm ripping my hair out trying to fix things that didn't translate well. Thank you for the consideration!
