There’s any way to input degrees in sexagesimal instead of decimals without converting them?

I need to draw this plot and it has to be precise. So, how can I input minutes and seconds to rotate?

you could enter 134+16/60 in the commandline

Thanks!

Rhino supports “Surveyor’s” angle units:

Use any of the Rhino angle unit measurements including fractions. You can mix input types.

The direction for 0 degrees is 3 o’clock. Positive angular measurement is counterclockwise.

Decimal Degrees

The “°” symbol can be used, but it is easier to just type d.

OK, I read the online help too, but, how can I actually set a unit of measure other than decimal degrees with a positive counterclockwise direction? I did’nt find any dialog item in the user preferences or a command. Thank you.

Hi Luciano -

This thread was about setting an angle when rotating something, not about measuring an angle.

That said, the annotation style has the following angular units to choose from:

Hi Wim, thanks for the reply. I apologize for choosing the wrong thread. However, I believe that the rotation problem could be more effectively and automatically solved if Rhino allowed the user to set a general angular unit for the entire model like Autocad. Annotation units are another matter. By.
