Calculate length of all dimensions

Recommended Posts

Hello @joestewart4669,


Maybe the attached VW2021 script will get the job done for you? What it does is that it sums up the lengths of all selected dimensions and outputs it as both an alert dialog and a message (for easy copy of the value if needed). Have not tested if this works with unit marks, but it works when the document is set to mm without unit mark.


Best Regards,

Nikolay Zhelyazkov

- Not really sure if we have some scripting classes in the VW university, but getting to know a bit of it might be your wildcard in such situations. 🙂
