# lISP ANGLE MEASUREMENT IN AUTOCAD 3D ## Recommended Posts  Hello everybody!
I want to measure the angle between a straight line and a plane (Do not use the Dist command), if the results can be exported to Excel, the better. As shown in the attached image I want the result of angle A and angle B (In minutes) between line MN and plane XOY.
Thank you very much. • Replies 24

ang2 (angle p3 p2)
toMin (* 60 (/ 180.0 PI)))
(strcat  (rtos (* ang1 toMin)) " min  /  " (rtos (* ang2 toMin)) " min")

THANK YOU FOR HELP ME. BUT THE RESULT IS ERROR, PLEASE CHECK IT! Edited by fuccaro

##### Share on other sites  Did you look for the mathematical answer ? Formulas with regards to planes. Then it could be converted to lisp.

Hello. I want lisp to replace the DIST command in Autocad. Instead of reading the results from the DIST command, I want the angle measurement results (Angle A and Angle B as shown in the illustration) to be exported to excel or printed to the screen.

Thank you very much. But the results shown above cannot be recorded on Autocad, so the effect is the same as the Dist command. Can you help me export that result to Excel or convert it into a text object on the drawing, it will be more convenient for me to process.

##### Share on other sites  My program returns the angles A and B. The results are converted to minutes, as requested in the first post. I got it wrong?!

Concerning the export: do you wish to use the program on more lines, and get all the results in a single file? Or maybe the program should generate a new file (containing just two values) at each use?

##### Share on other sites  " if the results can be exported to Excel"

Yes can be done look here for "Alan Excel Library.lsp" or GETEXCEL.lsp they are both example code of functions that can be used for a solution.

##### Share on other sites  @fuccaro  Per my test, your program calculates the correct angles and outputs the results in minutes as requested (I missed the "minutes" requirement in my code).  I think it should output the supplementary angle if the calculation is greater than 10800  (number of minutes in 180°). I'm wondering if the OP really wanted the angles in degrees-decimal minutes.

HI FUCCARO!

YOU SEE THE ATTACHED DRAWING. THE RESULTS FROM AUTOCAD'S DIST COMMAND AND FROM YOUR LISP ARE DIFFERENT. I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE CAUSE

HI FUCCARO!

YOU SEE THE ATTACHED DRAWING. THE RESULTS FROM AUTOCAD'S DIST COMMAND AND FROM YOUR LISP ARE DIFFERENT. I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE CAUSE ##### Share on other sites  @CongVenh you asked for the angle in minutes and that is what @fuccaro gave you! As I noted previously, did you really want degrees, minutes and maybe seconds? Please be more specific about what you want. For example, do you want degrees and minutes with the minutes value rounded  and? seconds not included

That's exactly my point. Your angle A is 17deg and 41min, or transformed in minutes only it is 1061 minutes.

I want the result of angle A and angle B (In minutes)

Thank you very much. But that result is not suitable for my work. Continue using the dist command (°⌣°)
