Measuring a Crane Radius


Here are some quick instructions for measuring a crane radius with a variable jib length/angle.

  1. Change your view to 2D (Shift +T)
  2. Click on the Review Toolset
  3. Select Measure Distance
  4. Select points on a flat surface (with little or no elevation change) representing the center of rotation and the jib end.
  5. Right-click on the annotation and select View as combined tags
  6. The Dist value will show the radius of the crane



Additional tip

Use a combination of the 3D line and tags to keep a permanent reference of the crane reach on your scenario:
