As part of the coordination and design review process, it is also necessary to measure distances in between elements.
You can measure distance and slope with the Length tool, which opens from the Analyze tab.
The Length tool lets you select a series of points from the model and prints out the distance and slope information.
When the Length tools is active, the mouse's right-click button brings up a screen menu with the following functions:
Snap to Nearest Vertex - Snaps to the nearest vertex/point/corner.
Undo Last Measure Step - Removes the last measure point from the list.
End Measuring - Ends measurement for the time being.
Restart Measurement - Restarts measurement; the previous measurement is removed.
Clear and Exit Measure - Exits the Measure Distances Tool and clears the measurement.
