Hello fellow SketchUp up users!
I am taking a bunch of angular measurements around my house with a theodolite. I am then entering this data into a model. I am using the free web based SketchUp and do not seem able to enter angular coordinates, even on the horizontal plane [eg. input ^45,100 gets error “invalid length”].
The only way i have been able to get the coordinates into SketchUp is by using the protractor. I have been doing the horizontal plane first, then i have to draw a vertical face on that angle so the next protractor can snap to, and then finally i can get my vertical angle and then distance. Slow and laborious!
In autocad this can be achieved by entering distance<long<lat. Eg. 200<45d34’40"<30d23’20"
Is SketchUp free capable of this simple coordinate input?
Is there a better way i can do this?
