Hi Jeff,

 

No, I don't have that tool. I simply looked into the acad.lsp file that Patchy uploaded.

Jeff - when we run the len command it brings up 4 options which we have to input.

 

1) English or Metric

2) Pipe Diameter

3) Takeout in inches

4) Text height

 

Then we pick the endpoints of a line and it gives us the correct length that the pipe needs to be cut in the shop.

Hi,

 

I unzipped the content of lent.zip and then added the folder as the first Support File Search Path in Options, so that acad.lsp (that contains (c:len) definition) get loaded - tested in AutoCAD 2012

Then I ran the len command and it seemed to work fine and the layer switched back after using it.

 

I was thinking why it would not work for you and then I thought maybe you just use Esc to end the command, in which case the layer won't be switched back since the command execution gets interrupted and the layer switch back part won't be reached.

Try to just simply press Enter/Space bar when you want to quit the len command.

Ok, so this is one of theose "DUH" moments. Yes id did work. A fellow co-worker asked the question and I guess I should have tried that before posting. Thanks Adam.
