How can I measure the Vertical Angle between 3D strings?
I have some complicated vertical pipe configurations that we've reduced to 3D strings in 12D.. this means I have the straights only.
Anyone?

plot a long section and use the normal measure angle option

There's a Measure Value icon from the Measure Edits toolbar, click on this, then walk right from 'String to point' and there's a vertical angle angle option.

Point to point rather than string to point maybe a better option in hindsight....

I would assume it is the deflection angle rather than the vertical angle that he is chasing, so measuring point to point vertical angle won't work

What is the "vertical angle between two strings" ?

Unfortunately everytime I make an assumption I seem to get it wrong Smile
So I have to keep asking questions.
