Slope value instead of angle

Is it possible to give slope value directly instead of coverting them into angle by taking tan inverse of the slope.For e.g : I want a line inclined to horizontal having a slope of (1/4).Now I dont want to take out my calculator and find out the angle, I just want to put in the slope value.

I have attached one such drawing where the dimensions are given in the slope form.Please suggest me as I am new to this software.

Thank You

Pretty sure you can use inline functions, such as atan(1/4), which returns the angle in degrees. Instead of entering a number, type the function. It may prompt you to add this as a relation, so that you can edit the fraction later on if you want.

You cannot do this directly that I know of. I have had to do this before. in the sketch I use construction geometry to set the slop. A vertical line of "1" horizontal line of "4" and use the diagonal vertex of each to define the sloping line. With these values, I also have the data I need to create the callout for the drawing.

Dear Antonius,

That would take extra bit of doing but I guess that is the only solution to this.Thank you for your helpful reply

Regards

Shashi.

Certainly easier than calculating each angle

I like using geometry to define sketches whenever possible.

atan() also completed my equation for the involute curve by solving angle a-c in a right triangle a, b, c.
