How to Use Measure Tool

The Measure tool provides a quick way to measure and temporarily display the distance between any two points on the model. It is limited to one measure at a time, each new measure will overwrite the previous one. Measurements are displayed in metric units. The Measure tool can be used in the orbit view or in the first person view.

Please note that the Measure tool is accessible in the viewer only if the tool is selected when publishing the viewer.

Click the Measure tool icon to turn the measure function on.

Click two points to measure. On desktop, holding the shift key disables snapping to vertices and edges.

You can drag the measuring point to the desired location. The green dots help to measure perpendicular distances between surfaces.

The dimensions generated by the tool remain on the screen, until you start the next measurement or exit the tool by clicking the Measure tool icon.
