Measures the distance, radius, angle, area, and volume of selected objects or sequence of points.
The MEASUREGEOM command performs many of the same calculations as the following commands:
Information displays at the Command prompt and in the dynamic tooltip in the current units format.
The following prompts are displayed.
Measures the distance between specified points along with the X, Y, and Z component distances and the angle relative to the UCS.
Displays a running total of the distance between successive points.
If you enter the Arc, Length, or Undo options, additional options similar to those for creating a polyline are displayed.
Measures the radius and diameter of a specified arc, circle, or polyline arc.
Measures the angle associated with selected arc, circle, polyline segments, and line objects.
Measures the angle formed between the two endpoints of an arc using the center of the arc as the vertex.
Measures the acute angle formed between where the circle was originally selected and a second point, using the center of the circle as the vertex.
Measures the acute angle between two selected lines. The lines do not need to intersect.
Measures the acute angle formed by specifying a point to act as a vertex and two other points.
Measures the area and perimeter of an object or defined area.
Calculates the area and perimeter defined by specified points.
If you enter the Arc, Length, or Undo options, additional options similar to those for creating a polyline are displayed.
Turns on Add mode and keeps a running total of area as you define areas.
Subtracts a specified area from the total area.
Measures the volume of an object or a defined area.
Measures the volume of an object or defined area.
You can select a 3D solids or 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 the Arc, Length, or Undo options, additional options similar to those for creating a polyline are displayed.
Turns on Add mode and keeps a running total of the volume as you define areas.
Turns on Subtract mode and subtracts a specified volume from the total volume.
You can specify options similar to those used in creating polylines when you use the Distance, Area, and Volume options.
Adds arc segments to the total length.
Completes the arc segment, which is tangent to the previous segment.
Specifies the included angle of the arc segment from the start point.
Entering a positive number creates counterclockwise arc segments. Entering a negative number creates clockwise arc segments.
Specifies the radius of the arc segment.
Specifies the center of the arc segment.
Specifies the chord length of the arc segment. If the previous segment is an arc, the new arc segment is drawn tangent to the previous arc segment.
Draws an arc segment from the last point specified to the starting point, creating a closed polyline. At least two points must be specified to use this option.
Specifies a starting direction for the arc segment.
Specifies the radius of the arc segment.
Specifies the second point and endpoint of a three-point arc.
Draws a line segment of a specified length at the same angle as the previous segment. If the previous segment is an arc, the new line segment is drawn tangent to that arc segment.
Removes the most recent arc segment added to the polyline.
Draws an arc segment from the last point specified to the starting point, creating a closed polyline. At least two points must be specified to use this option.
