**Units**

Use the following characters to indicate a specific unit of measurement when entering a value in the Measurements toolbar. If you do not indicate a unit of measurement, your default units are used (as indicated by the template you are using in SketchUp).

- number + " (inches). Example: 10"
- number + ' (feet). Example: 10'
- number + mm (millimeters). Example: 10mm
- number + cm (centimeters). Example: 10cm
- number + m (meters). E64xample: 10m

**Arrays**

An array is an arrangement of geometry in a line (linear array) or around an point (radial array).

- number + x (external array). Type this number after making a manual copy of geometry to duplicate that copy an additional x-1 times. So, 3x creates 2 additional copies plus the original copy. The copies are made in the same direction as the first copy (either in a line or radially around a point). Example: 3x
- number + * (external array) Type this number after making a manual copy of geometry to duplicate that copy an additional x-1 times. So, 3* creates 2 additional copies plus the original copy. The copies are made in the same direction as the first copy (either in a line or radially around a point). Example: 3*
- / (internal array). Type this number after making a manual copy of geometry to duplicate copy an additional x-1 times (between the original and manual copy). So, 3/ creates 2 additional copies between the original and manual copy. The copies are made moving backward from the first, manual, copy (either in a line or radially around a point). Example: 3/

**Measurements field commands with SketchUp tools**

You can enter values in the Measurements toolbar when you use specific tools to specify precise values, such as a specific number of sides in a circle.

**Arc tool**

- number (chord length). Enter this value right after setting the starting point of the arc. Example: 10
- number (bulge). Enter this value right after setting the ending point of the arc. Example: 5.
- number+ r (radius). Enter this value right after setting the ending point of the arc (in place of bulge). Example: 10r
- number + s (segments). Enter this value right after setting the ending point of the arc. Example: 20s

Refer to Creating Precise Arcs for further information.

**Circle tool**

- number + s (sides/segments). Enter this value right after setting the center point of the circle. Example: 10s
- number + r (radius). Enter this value right after setting the center point of the circle. Example: 5r

Refer to Creating Precise Circles for further information.

**Field of View tool**

number + deg (field of view). Enter this value right after selecting the Field of View tool. Example: 110deg

Refer to Changing Field of View and Focal Length for further information.

**Line tool**

- number (length). Enter this value right after setting the starting point of the line. Example: 4' 2 5/8"
- [number, number, number] (absolute coordinate). Enter three numbers right after setting the starting point of the line to identify an ending point at an absolute coordinate relative to the axis. For example: [3',4',7']
- <number, number, number> (relative coordinate). Enter three numbers right after setting the starting point of the line to identify an ending point at relative coordinate to the start point. For example: <1.5m, 4m, 2.75m>

Refer to Creating Precise Lines for further information.

**Look Around tool**

number (eye height). Enter this value right after selecting the Look Around tool to set your eye height as your tour through a model. For example: 6'

**Move tool**

- number (distance). Enter this value as you begin to move geometry in a specific direction. For example: 10'
- [number, number, number] (global coordinate). Enter three numbers right after selecting geometry to identify a global coordinate for the ending of the move relative to the axis. For example: [3',4',7']
- <number, number, number> (relative coordinate). Enter three numbers right after selecting geometry identify a relative coordinate for the ending of the move. For example: <1.5m, 4m, 2.75m>

Refer to Moving Precisely for further information.

**Offset tool**

number (length). Enter this value right after you click on the lines or face you want to offset. Example: 20'

Refer to offsetting precisely for further information.

**Push/Pull tool**

number (distance). Enter this value right after you select a face to push or pull. Example: 10

Refer to Offsetting Precisely for further information.

**Polygon tool **

- number + s (sides). Enter this value right after setting the center point of the polygon. Example: 10s
- number + r (radius). Enter this value right after setting the center point of the polygon. Example: 5r

Refer to Creating Precise Polygons for further information.

**Protractor tool **

- number (degrees). Enter this value right after setting the start of the angle to set the angle of a guide line. Example: 15
- number:number (slope). Enter these values (rise:run) right after setting the start of the angle to set the slope of the guide line. Example: 14:7

Refer to Creating Precise Angles for further information.

**Rotate tool **

- number (angle). Enter this value right after setting the start of the rotation. Example: 15
- number:number (slope). Enter these values (rise:run) right after setting the start of the rotation. Example: 14:7

Refer to Rotating Precisely for further information.

**Scale tool **

- number (scale multiplier). Enter this value right after you begin to scale geometry. Example: 10
- number + units (length). Enter this value right after you begin to scale geometry. Example: 10'

Refer to Scaling Precisely for further information.

**Tape Measure tool **

- number (distance for guide line or guide point). Enter this value as you start to create a guide line or guide point. Example: 10"
- number (resize model). Enter this value right after you measure the length of a line segment to resize the entire model. Example: 20'

Refer to Placing Precise Guide Lines and Guide Points for further information.
