Detrmining the Diameter

Ribbon: Point Clouds – Information > Determining the Diameter
Menu: Point clouds – Information > Determining the Diameter
Toolbar: Point clouds > Determining the Diameter
Command line: _NPC_DIAMETER

The command for detecting the diameter allows you to obtain data on the diameter of pipes and cylinders recognized in the point cloud in a form that allows you to transfer this information to other commands in the nanoCAD environment. The command is “transparent” and can be launched over an already running command. For example, the task is to draw a circle centered on the axis of a recognized pipe and with the diameter of this pipe. To solve this problem, you can set up a 3D snap on the axis of the recognized geometry. Run the command to draw a circle by center and diameter. Select the center point of the circle, the circle drawing command will ask for the diameter. After that, without exiting the circle drawing command, run the diameter determination command. Select the point of the pipe, on the axis of which we have selected the circle center. The command for determining the diameter is completed and fills in the command line request to specify the diameter with the value of the pipe recognized in the cloud. The second scenario for using the command to determine the diameter involves its isolated call. By calling the command to determine the diameter, we can fill in the clipboard with the diameter of the pipe or cylinder we are interested in. This feature will allow you to interact with commands whose parameters are set through modal dialogs. Having remembered the diameter value in the clipboard, when calling such a command, we can fill in the required field in the dialog with the diameter value.
