Dynamic object input?


#1

Can I enter object dimensions like AC’s Dynamic Input or Sketchup’s VCB. In other words, is there somewhere I can enter for a rectangle curve 9’,3’ and I’ll get a box 9’ long and 3’ high? I did that at the command line, and when dimensioned, it was 31’-6" x 7’

If you just press 9’,3’ the second point will be at 9’,3’ not 9’,3’ from your current point. If you want to make the rectangle 9’,3’ you must put @ before. Like @9’,3’

@ means that you want to put your next point based on your current position and not on your current plane.

“r” can also be used as the prefix for relative position.
