Lightwave has several tools for analyzing geometry Ė the Measure Tool, Angle Tool and of course the indispensable Dimension+ 1.6 by Gianni Soldati, but is there a tool for Lightwave that will analyze radiusís? The only method I have found so far is to put the radius (curve) in a background layer and use the disc tool and draw out over the top of the radius you want to analyze and watch the Radius input in the numeric panel. I might be missing something simple, so Iíd sure like to hear any suggestions.

Thanks
Tim

There is a plug_in called find_center. This will add a point to the center of your circle. You can then use the measure tool to find out the radius of the circle.
