SAC- Absolute Value

276 Views, 3 Replies

Is there a way to get the absolute value using the subassembly composer? I was checking the elevation difference between two points and just want the delta regardless if it's positive or negative.

 

Thanks

Try: math.abs(p2.elevation-p1.elevation)

Thanks!

 

Tried the "abs" but forgot the "math."

There is a link in the help file to the Microsoft site that lists all the functions in the .NET Math library. You can use all of these inside of SAC. However, if you think you need trig functions you might want to revisit the point options and intersection options. I don't think I've needed to use trig yet.
