    Thanks for the tutorial. I used to have a problem measuring distances in Rhino till I began to experiment. Select a polyline or the line tool and click at the beginning of your measurement distance. Key in your distance from the keyboard in ft. inches, meters, or millimeters, etc. Hit return, and the line automatically measures what you have commanded. Click on the line as the line comes into a perfect weight all the way through. Hope this helps. Actually, after one does this a few times, you may discover it is easier to measure than it was for me to try and render a short commentary. It is very, very easy.
