	Dim dimObj As AcadDimAligned
	Dim point1(0 To 2) As Double, point2(0 To 2) As Double
	Dim location(0 To 2) As Double

	' Define the dimension
	point1(0) = 5: point1(1) = 5: point1(2) = 0
	point2(0) = 5.5: point2(1) = 6: point2(2) = 0
	location(0) = 5: location(1) = 7: location(2) = 0

	' Create an aligned dimension object in model space
	Set dimObj = ThisDrawing.ModelSpace.AddDimAligned(point1, point2, location)
