dimensions, plural;
  1. Cut or shape (something) to particular measurements

  2. Mark (a diagram) with measurements
    • - draw a dimensioned front elevation
  1. An aspect or feature of a situation, problem, or thing
    • - sun-dried tomatoes add a new dimension to this sauce
  2. A measurable extent of some kind, such as length, breadth, depth, or height
    • - the final dimensions of the pond were 14 ft. x 8 ft
    • - the drawing must be precise in dimension
  3. A mode of linear extension of which there are three in space and two on a flat surface, which corresponds to one of a set of coordinates specifying the position of a point

  4. An expression for a derived physical quantity in terms of fundamental quantities such as mass, length, or time, raised to the appropriate power (acceleration, for example, having the dimension of length × time2)

  1. the magnitude of something in a particular direction (especially length or width or height)
  2. indicate the dimensions on; "These techniques permit us to dimension the human heart"
  3. property: a construct whereby objects or individuals can be distinguished; "self-confidence is not an endearing property"
  4. shape or form to required dimensions
  5. one of three Cartesian coordinates that determine a position in space
  6. proportion: magnitude or extent; "a building of vast proportions"
  7. In mathematics and physics, the dimension of a space or object is informally defined as the minimum number of coordinates needed to specify each point within it. Thus a line has a dimension of one because only one coordinate is needed to specify a point on it. ...
  8. The Dimension division of Stratasys manufactures 3D printing equipment which uses fused deposition modeling (FDM).
  9. In a data warehouse, a dimension is a data element that categorizes each item in a data set into non-overlapping regions. A data warehouse dimension provides the means to "slice and dice" data in a data warehouse. ...
  10. In commutative algebra, the Krull dimension of a ring R, named after Wolfgang Krull (1899–1971), is the number of strict inclusions in a maximal chain of prime ideals. The Krull dimension need not be finite even for a noetherian ring.
  11. In metadata, dimension is a set of equivalent units of measure, where equivalence between two units of measure is determined by the existence of a quantity preserving one-to-one correspondence between values measured in one unit of measure and values measured in the other unit of measure, ...
  12. In mathematics and science, dimensional analysis is a tool to understand the properties of physical quantities independent of the units used to measure them. ...
  13. A single aspect of a given thing; A measure of spatial extent in a particular direction, such as height, width or breadth, or depth; A construct whereby objects or individuals can be distinguished; Any of the independent coordinates used to specify uniquely the location of a point in a space; ...
  14. (3-dimensional) 3-D. A graphic display of depth, width, and height. Also called 3-D.
  15. (Dimensional) In the sign business, it denotes "three-dimensional". in that the letters, numbers, artwork, or other sign features are elevated or raised above the background (sometimes lower than the background). ...
  16. (dimensional) A mailing piece with some heft and immediate visual presence, such as a box or tube, that often contains a gift or premium for the recipient. ...
  17. (Dimensions) Independent directions in space-time. We are familiar with the three dimensions of space (length, width and height, or east-west, north-south and up-down) and one of time (past-future), but superstring theory, for example, requires the universe to have ten dimensions.
  18. (Dimensions) The three measurements of a box, given in the sequence of length, width and depth. Inside dimensions are used to ensure proper fit around a product.
  19. (DIMENSIONS) The actual measured size of a flag, or of a charge thereon, as opposed to its proportions (see also ‘proportions’, ‘specification’, and ‘specification sheet’,).
  20. (Dimensions) Desired knowledge or skills measured in an assessment and usually represented in a scoring rubric. ...
  21. (Dimensions) Sometimes it is important to know just how big a product is. (Who knows maybe you have a small mailbox!) gives you the measurements down to the closest 1/8th of an inch.
  22. (Dimensions) Business card sizes differ from country to country.  The standard size most cards in the U.S. and Canada is 3.5" x 2" (89 x 51 mm), while the international standard is 3.370" x 2.125" (85.60 x 53.98 mm), the same size as credit cards. Japanese business cards are normally 91 x 55 mm.
  23. (Dimensions) 6.7 x 4.2 x 1.1 inches
  24. (Dimensions) Measurements of wall and objects
  25. (Dimensions) The fundamental measurables of a unit system in physics—those which are defined through operational definitions. All other measurable quantities in physics are defined through mathematical relations to the fundamental quantities. ...
