Horizontal Distances in a 3d World without inversing?

Postby Mathew » Thu Aug 26, 2010 9:48 am

Hi there

Is there a configuration setting or something somewhere to define the measured distance in the "dist" command as horizontal instead of slope? (or is there perhaps another distance command that i'm ignorant of?) i'm looking for a way to get horizontal distances between 3d points and a mixture of 3d and 2d lines without having to create points in order to complete inverses.

Thanks
Mat

probably easiest to just save a copy and scalez to 0?

Or draw a temporary line between the two points, then click on it to see the CAD Lines Dialog, which shows both the slope distance and the horizontal distance (and other information).

You may want to visit http://feedback.microsurvey.com and add a feature request for the inverse command to work without needing database points.
