Field Value for Rigging Spots in worksheets?


Recommended Posts

I am hoping someone can help me here.


I generally have my rigging origin on the drawing origin for 90% of the stuff I work on.  I have something where they want to move the rigging origin.  I have a nice report that generates all the dims.  The field value in the database is =(ROUND(('BrxHoist'.'OriginX')*12))/12 for x and similar  for y.


What would I want to do to make this value shown from the spot shown?

You should only need to add or subtract the offset of the rigging origin from the drawing origin.  If your offset is 15' 6" it would look something like:




Assuming that you are working in Feet & inches.  It is best to manually do the conversion to decimal feet to use in the math rather than try and put unit marks into the calculation.
