• SketchUp 6.0

### ↑ #degrees ⇒ Float

The degrees method is used to convert from degrees to radians.

For example 90.degrees would return 1.5707963267949

Examples:

``````degrees = 90
radians = degrees.degrees``````

Returns:

• (Float)

a value in radians if successful

Version:

• SketchUp 6.0

Examples:

``````feet = 1
inches = feet.feet``````

Returns:

• (Length)

a value in inches if successful

Version:

### ↑ #inch ⇒ Length

The to_l is used to convert from a number to a length.

Examples:

``````number = 12
length = number.to_l``````

Returns:

• (Length)

a Length object if successful

Version:

• SketchUp 6.0

### ↑ #km ⇒ Length

The km method is used to convert from kilometers to inches.

Examples:

``````value = 1
inches = value.km``````
