Need help finding dimension actual value


Recommended Posts

Hi guys i need some help i am trying to find the actual value of a dimension. for example i have a line at 0 deg and a line at 32 deg. i create a angular dimension between them which will read 32 deg in the dimension. i am trying to get the actual "32" value from the dxf data but cant seem to find it,all i am getting is the return of (2 . "*D285"). am i looking at this wrong?


Here is  section of my code i need help with:


(command "_dimangular"  pause pause pause))
	(progn ;Start program
	(setq dim(ssget "_L"))
	(setq dimn (ssname dim 0))
	(setq dimnp (entget dimn))
	(setq ang (nth 16 dimnp))
;this returns the (2 . "*D285") where i think the value should be stored or am i wrong?????

the rest of the code i have already done. i did not post it here.....

Check the DXF 42 and 1

@Subidoooo (setq ang (/ (* (cdr (assoc 42 (entget (car (entsel "select the dim"))))) 180.0) PI))


as assoc 42 show angle in radian
