Units

Set the units for the distance display.

##### Nesting the Length, Radius, and Distance commands

The Length, Radius, and Distance commands are nestable. This means that if Rhino is asking for a distance in a command, you can use these commands to measure another object or distance and the resulting value will be feed to the command as if you had typed the number.

#### Example using Offset

1. Start the OffsetSrf command.
2. At the prompt for the offset distance, type Length, Radius, or Distance, and press Enter.
3. Select a curve.
The offset distance will be set to that value.

#### Example using Fillet

1. Start the Fillet command.
2. At the prompt for the radius, type Length, Radius, or Distance, and press Enter.
3. Select a curve.
The fillet radius will be set to that value.
