Calculating distances and angles

You can calculate the distance between any two points you select to determine the

following information:

• The distance between the points, measured in drawing units.

• Their angle in the xy plane.

• Their angle measured from the xy plane.

The change (delta) in the x, y, and z distances between the two points.

Calculating the distance between two points and their angle

When calculating the distance between points, it is often helpful to use entity snaps to

specify precise points.

Viewing calculated distance details

As you select entities, the program displays the calculations. If the command bar is

displayed, the information appears there. If the command bar is not displayed, the

program opens the Prompt History window and displays the calculations. The following

type of information is an example of what is displayed:

Distance = 13.2850, Angle in XY Plane = 31º, Angle from XY Plane = 0º

Delta X = 11.3878, Delta Y = 6.8418, Delta Z = 0.0000
