You can
obtain information about the relation between two specified points
or multiple points; for example, the distance between points or
their angle in the *XY* plane.

To
determine the relation between points, you can display the

- Distance between them
- Angle between the points in the
*XY* plane
- Angle of the points from the
*XY* plane
- Delta, or changed,
*X*, *Y*,
and *Z* distances between them

The ID command lists
the *X*, *Y*, and *Z* coordinate
values of a specified point.

To calculate the distance
and angle between two points
- Specify a first and second point for
the distance you want to calculate.
- Press Enter.
The distance displays
at the Command prompt in the current units format.

To calculate the distance
and angle between multiple points
- For the distance you want to calculate,
specify a first and second point.
- For the distance you want to calculate,
specify the next point or points.
- Press Enter.
The distance displays
at the Command prompt in the current units format.

CommandsDIST
Measures the distance
and angle between two points.

ID
Displays the UCS coordinate
values of a specified location.

MEASUREGEOM
Measures the distance,
radius, angle, area, and volume of selected objects or sequence
of points.

System VariablesDISTANCE
Stores the distance
computed by the DIST command.
