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.

I think what a lot of users here are trying to say is this: in the sign and printing industries, a lot of customers are designing their parts in Illustrator or another vector graphics software, and send their designs as vector graphics files (often *.ai or *pdf). In my company, we produce circuits that could end up being used for medical devices or military equipment, so repeatedly exporting data or re-drawing between programs can lead to more mistakes.
I can't say that these others do things the same way, but at my company, we export objects to an AutoCAD dwg, apply dimensions, then re-import them to Illustrator. Our alternative is to draw dimensions manually, following a template. If we had the option to insert dimensions based on the files current units, many users would be glad that they don't need to use a work-around.
