EvaluatePT - subtle improvement

It would incredibly useful if in the command line options for the evaluatePT command, you could specify which part of the coordinates to display. For example, just evaluating the z coordinate. As a landscape architect I am constantly using the evaluatePT command to confirm elevations. Though I have created my own workaround in grasshopper, I would love a native tool that generates a text dot of the just the z-value upon click.

Hi Kev - see if this quick and dirty script helps at all. World coordinates only for now.

PointLabeler.py (1.6 KB)

To use the Python script use RunPythonScript, or a macro:

_-RunPythonScript "Full path to py file inside double-quotes"


A scripted tool can do that directly in Rhino without the need to go through GH. Here is one I wrote for another client a couple of weeks ago.

Hmm, too slow… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
