Measure Angle Tool
 
1 Attachment(s)
I built a tool to measure angles in Maya. I think it could be pretty useful. I know there are a few others out there like this, but I hope that this offers a bit more flexibility and functionality.

Blogpost and download link: http://biocinematics.blogspot.ca/201...asurement.html

Or just download from here: http://goo.gl/sEn3iP

I'd be happy to hear feedback, especially on versions of Maya other than 2015 on Win x64. Read the documentation at the beginning for usage.

at least both links are not responding.....
thank you.....
i would love to try your tool..... i see a need for it indefinatly with my geometry.....;-)

That's strange as the links work for me. Try right-click > save link as...

Or maybe I'll just upload it here. The only reason it's zipped is the forum doesn't accept mel files.

thank you.... triad again to do a save as in IE & firefox the link sends me to a google page and returns
403. That’s an error.

We're sorry, but you do not have access to this page. That’s all we know.

the link you gave me yesterday works just fine.... thank you, since i am learning to code in MEL as well i also thank you for you clear scripting..... who knows i can get some more basic understanding inside MEL

be well and thx...... you do great stuff...... love your works......

Sorry, I see now that I have set the sharing settings wrong. Thanks for the heads up about that.

ieoie 17-03-2015 09:22 AM

nice one..... thx a lot.....
you maybe have time to do a day webinar aboout MEL, through skype or team viewer....???
my understanding will grow on the specifics i want to learn, and you maybe have a great MEL tutorial to share the community.....
;-)
i will definatly have very nice questions, based on the newby MEL knowledge i have already gathered.....

Hi ieoie,
Sorry for the very delayed reply. I've finished teaching a course on Maya and am planning to share the lectures on YouTube, including a few lectures on MEL. I'll be sure to share those once they're up.

Could you (or anyone) also check the goo.gl link on the first post and let me know if there is still a permissions error? I'm not sure if I fixed it properly.

Hi stwert, the Google link still works for me

Great tool. I love that it works with components. Thanks much!

stwert 09-10-2015 06:13 PM

Great, glad it's useful for you!

// Error: Line 1.14: Syntax error //

I put measureAngle(\"UI\"); in the command box of the UI button on my shelf. Am I missing something or is there a depreciated element of the code in the script that Maya 2016 does not recognise?

stwert 07-01-2017 01:53 AM

Don't include the backslashes, it should just be: measureAngle("UI");

Shadowhisperer 07-01-2017 05:57 AM

Thank you so much!

hi stwert

i downloaded d measuring angle plugin frm ur blog.but when i try to run it it gives an error saying // Error: line 1: Cannot find procedure "measureAngle". //.pls advice

stwert 28-10-2017 07:48 PM

I believe you either need to run
Code:

measureAngle("UI");
or
Code:

measureAngle("Quick");
to run in either mode. Recommended UI mode, but read the documentation at the beginning of the mel file for some help.
