The Horizontal series of measurements command creates a series of measurements parallel to the horizon. For example, Horizontal series of measurements can be used to exactly measure a wall with small distances in order to finely scribe a countertop or hearth for fitting.

These measurements are taken horizontally, maintaining the same elevation defined by the first measurement, and within the specified tolerance.

To measure a Horizontal series of measurements:

  1. Ensure that a folder with a Horizontal plane is selected.
  2. From the Dropdown of ‘Start series of measurements’, select the command Horizontal series of measurements.

  3. A window Define series of Measurements will open open. You may choose to draw either Points, Lines, or Polylines. Enter the ‘distance between points’, or the distance between each consecutive point to be measured. The final option, ‘Maximum measuring tolerance to virtual plane’ allows you to define the distance tolerance to the virtual horizontal plane at which the measurements will be taken.

  1. In the Command Window, you will be prompted to measure the point where you wish to begin the measurements. Measure to define this point.
  2. Now, Measure a point in the direction you want to measure, several inches away from the first point.
  3. Finally, measure a point to define where to end the measurements.
#_The command window and Flexijet screen will indicate that the series of measurements was created, and then will ask again for the start point of the horizontal series of measurements. You have completed the definition of the first series of measurements, and may now create an additional series of measurements if you choose, for example on another wall. Or, click ‘confirm’ on the computer or ‘Cancel’ on the Flexijet to end the definition of measurement series. A dialog window will now appear, asking if you would like to begin the series of measurements. Click ‘Yes’ on the Computer or Flexijet screen to begin the series of measurements. If you prefer to start the measurement later, click on the Start Series of Measurements button on the Flexijet Ribbon. The Flexijet will return to the start position and complete all defined series of measurements.
