Help with Utilities and Measure

Recommended Posts

prime333

Hello there I'm wondering if I can get some help with a question I have. How would I total the distance of multiple separate distances? For example using the measure command I can get the distance of a line. Furthermore I could use the distance command to get the distance of another line. So, how would I go about using Autocad so that I can get the TOTAL of multiple separate lines?

If the lines has similar properties (like on the same layer), I would use DATAEXTRACTION and export the length to Excel. Then I would sum total length there.

The easiest way would be to use a custom lisp program. Here is an example...http://lee-mac.com/totallengthandarea.html

 

And here is another....http://www.turvill.com/t2/free_stuff/tlen.lsp

 

Took all of five seconds to find both.

Another excellent tool by Lee Mac that I use weekly (tlen.lsp).

The simple ones are often the most useful :)

Hey guys I'm back. The lsp program uploads into autocad, but I'm still getting single distances I'm not getting the total of multiple distances like I was hoping for. I'm wondering if someone can try the lsp program on their autocad and if they can get the total of multiple distances. Thank you.

If this doesn't help you, you may have to do more explaining. The program doesn't need you to input distances, just select the objects. The program will determine and add the lengths automatically.
