Measures the distance, radius, angle, area, and volume of selected objects or sequence of points.
Button
The following prompts are displayed.
Enter an option [Distance/Radius/Angle/ARea/Volume] <Distance>: Specify Distance, Radius, Angle, Area, or Volume
Information displays at the Command prompt and in the tooltip in the current units format.
Measures the distance between specified points. The following display at the Command prompt and in the tooltip:
A running total of distance based on existing line segments and the current rubber-band line is calculated. The total updates as you move the cursor and displays in the tooltip.
If you enter Arc, Length, or Undo Options for Selecting Polylines display.
Measures the area and perimeter of an object or defined area.
Calculates the area and perimeter defined by specified points.
If you enter Arc, Length, or Undo, Options for Selecting Polylines display.
Measures the volume of an object or a defined area.
Measures the volume of an object or defined area.
You can select 2D objects. If you select a 2D object you must specify a height for that object.
If you define an object by specifying points, you must specify at least three points to define a polygon. All must lie on a plane parallel to the XY plane of the UCS. If you do not close the polygon, an area will be calculated as if a line existed between the first and last points entered.
If you enter Arc, Length, or Undo Options for Selecting Polylines display.
Options for Selecting Polylines
You can select polylines when using the Distance, Area, and Volume options.
Specifies the width from the center of a wide polyline segment to one of its edges.
The starting half-width becomes the default ending half-width. The ending half-width becomes the uniform half-width for all subsequent segments until you change the half-width again. The starting and ending points of wide line segments are at the center of the line.
Typically, the intersections of adjacent wide polyline segments are beveled. No beveling is performed for nontangent arc segments or very acute angles or when a dot-dash linetype is used.
Specifies the width of the next arc segment.
The starting width becomes the default ending width. The ending width becomes the uniform width for all subsequent segments until you change the width again. The starting and ending points of wide line segments are at the center of the line.
