Math in Fields

Thu Feb 14, 2019 12:16 pm

I didn't see this specifically requested yet, so...

How about supporting math in numerical fields? I think this would be really handy for a lot of people.

Do you have some examples of how this would be used?

Here's one...

For some reason, I work in Imperial units. ;) When I bring these into S3D, the scale comes in like this...

It would be great if I could just add "*1.04" or whatever to any of those fields.

I'll pull together some others.

I see. On this one I think it is actually converting inches to mm. So your 1" measurement would be 25.4mm
I think you can go to preferences and change the unit scale to inches. If you wanted to! Also some CAD software will do a conversion for you on export.

That's an example you asked for and has nothing to do with scaling inches to mm. :)
