I often have to query some objects for their dimensions. Plates for LnxWdxTh. Beams for Length (and would be realy nice if I could get back the info on profile).
Is there a better/ easier way to do it then:
- do some clicking and rotating to position an object in right position so one could select UCS lines when they appear;
- Set coordinate system to a part (UCS at object: 3 clicks and 1 enter);
- Measure the diagonal (on plates: 3 clicks or shortcut +2 clicks) (on beams the same, just selecting the points on sistem/profile line)
- Often I have to click a few more times to go back to the object orietation it was before selecting new object UCS.
Is there somewhere a hiden, ultra-secret command like "Measure in Objects Coordinate system"? So one could do all above described with 2-3 clicks (2 clicks: select a command and select an object, 3 clicks select a command and select 2 points one need a distance for)?
p.s. - I guess there is a reason why my space for entering this message is just 4 (four) rows deep, so I have to scroll trough my own message to edit it... I can think of none, really. No wait - let me have a wild guess: force the questioner to be brief :D
