Perimeter in feet

Recommended Posts

When getting the perimeter of an object such as a slab I get the dimension in inches.  Is there a way to get it in feet?

That would require a custom macro.  EXACTLY what format and rounding are you looking for?

Here you go...

 

rgw perimter.json

 

Just download and import this macro via Text Macro Management and then place your new %rgw_perimter% macro into your label. 

 

It was written and tested relatively quickly but I think it should do the trick.  If you find it valuable enough to you maybe consider sending a donation my way by simply clicking on the PayPal link down in my signature.

The macro is grayed out.  I imported it from the down load but I get an Evaluation Error.  Did I do something wrong.

Not sure.  What object type are you using it for?  And are you placing it into a label or into a text box?

I wrote that to be placed into the actual slab label.  If you want to use a text box with a leader line you'll need to change the context from Owner to Referenced or use this one instead.  It can be used for either context...
