Über Rack Unit Dimension Line Visio SmartShape

What You Get

When you purchase the Über Rack Unit Dimension Line Visio SmartShape you get a Visio stencil and a drawing for testing the shapes. There are instructions for "installing" the stencil to your Shapes/Favorites for easy access.

You can also choose between new (Visio 2013+) and older (Visio 2010-) versions of the files.

The "Tester" Visio diagram that is included with the zip file that you download is a convenient place for you to try out the shape and put it through its paces. Ultimately you will copy the stencil (.vss or .vssx) to your My Shapes directory, so that you can easily call it up when you need the rack unit shapes.

The full version offers a stencil containing four Visio master shapes that support up to 50, 100, 200 and 400 tick marks. It is best to pick the smallest version possible that will meet your diagramming needs, as the larger versions of the shape will perform more slowly. The shapes are pretty complex, and the 400-tick-mark version of the shape could be rather slow, depending on your hardware!

  • Choose tick mark styles: box, checkered-box or lines
  • Set line and text color for major, even and odd ticks

  • Can be applied to any diagramming situation that requires special scaled/ruled units.
