Used to measure the length
of an element(s) and analyze mass properties. For a closed element or a
surface, the length of the perimeter or wireframe geometry is measured.
You can access this tool from the following:
Measurements of referenced perspective saved views are not
|| If on, the
Mass Properties window displays the
mass property analysis.
|| If on, a graphic crosshair that represents the
center of mass for the measured element(s) is displayed.
|| Sets how measurements for the length are reported.
- None — Measures the
true length in 2D and 3D sheet and design models.
- View Z — Measures
the projected length based on the view rotation. Not recommended for use in 3D
design models. For 3D data referenced to a 2D Design model or 2D sheet model or
3D sheet model the projected distance is reported.
- ACS Z — Measures
about the active Auxiliary Coordinate System (ACS) or in the ACS XY plane.
Results are projected about the ACS Z or on the ACS XY plane.
- AccuDraw Z —
Measures about the AccuDraw compass XY or about AccuDraw Z. Results are
projected about the AccuDraw Z or on the AccuDraw XY plane.
|| Displays the length measured.
|| Displays the angle measured.
