Distance

Getting Inquiry

Distance Ribbon: Home – Utilities – Inquiry > Distance Menu: Tools – Inquiry > Distance Toolbar: Main –  Toolbar: Inquiry –  Command line: DI, DIST

Use the Distance command to measure the distance between specified points.

The angle in the XY plane is measured from the current X-axis, and the angle of the XY plane is measured from the current XY plane.

The measured values of the distances and angles are displayed in the command line in the current units format.

Command prompts:

 Specify first point: Specify the first point. Specify second point: Specify the second point.

In the command line the following values are displayed: the distance between specified points; angle between points in the XY plane; angle between the imaginary line drawn through the points and XY plane; and delta of coordinates on the X, Y, and Z axes.

Distance = 270.0000, Angle in XY Plane = 35, Angle from XY Plane = 0

Delta X = 221.1711, Delta Y = 154.8656, Delta Z = 0.0000
