Basic mathematics ( + and * ) not implemented


#1

while division and subtraction works without any problems i can’t multiply or add.

line tool
click for starting point
enter 20/4
klick for a line with length 5
works

line tool
click for starting point
enter 2*4 or 2+4

ERROR “not implemented”

would be great if you could add this in future releases.
thx


#2

Division has always worked because it was needed for fractional English/US measurements. You can do other command line calculations in Windows Rhino - although it’s a bit unwieldy:

Typing =(2*4+3) will yield 11

Unfortunately, this does not look like it’s implemented in MacRhino yet. It is actually invoking Python behind the scenes if I recall correctly, so it should be possible, I guess…
