Whenever we use measure tool it will show the a dialog box with valves of x,y,z, delta X, delta Y & delta Z. I want to customize the same as per the attached image.

Customize this, dialog box will not disappear(modal) after entering into any other command so no need to remember the values of x,y....etc.

Hi,

 

Inventor dialogs are not customizable in general. However you can create your own dialog if you want to.

The measure functionalities are available through the API, so that part of it you could reuse.

HEllo Adam,

 

I am writing a macro to get distances of "WorkPoint"s in Occurrences from "Face"s of parts in occurrences.

 

And writing all data to excel file or csv file.

 

Thanks.

well, WorkPoint.Point has the method Point.DistanceTo to get the distance of two work points.

 

As to writting to Excel/CSV, you can just use Windows API. Searching with the keywords, you could also find some posts here.
