There are a realy fancy way to do it lazy ;
You set the sys.var. "Texteval" to one. Then you type "Text" and when you
reach the point when the function ask the text to be printed , you just
ansver "(getdist)" at the keyboard. When you press enter the program will
freze, untill you point to two points ,for the Getdist function to calculate
the distance between, --------- when you passed the points their distance
will be printed not the text you typed in.
To get it even smarter looking, you can check the function "Strcat" that
allow you to pass strings of text of your own choice, before or after the
Sometimes much easier than finding the right dimensioning tools ------
beside "(getdist)" work 3D ;))
I don't know that we are talking about the same thing here. I'm talking
about having a drawing with dimensions on it & to save time, or being lazy,
call it what you want, if there was, may be a lisp or something, so all I
had to do was to click on the dimensions I wanted, add them together & get a
total measurement, this would make life a lot easier, not to mention save
time.Of coarse this may not be possible.
