A couple of questions on this:
1. Would it be okay to have a separate spec creation service much like the upcoming Adobe XD service? On this service, anyone with a link, can select any objects, and view its dimensions (W/H), colors, fonts etc. Or should it be inside Illustrator.
2. Are you only going to create horizontal, and vertical dimensions? Or would you also like to have angular dimensions as well?
Please share more details about your workflow.

I agree with the above by tracey. I also work in the sign industry and am constantly doing visuals for clients. It would be great to have a tool inside the programme like with autodesk where you pick two points and drag the measurement line up to display it. It would also be great if it also adjusted as dimensions changed - of that particular line or vector originally selected.
It is incredibly time consuming as it is, manually. Especially as clients change their minds all the time and you need them to sign off your visual!
