  1. Measurement in the 3d Builder


    Please advise how can someone design without the measurement tool inside 3d builder. I read up about on forums that there is measurement tool inside the 3d builder on the object menu, but I am unable to see this in my version of 3d builder. I am using Windows 10.

    :)

    Measuring objects in 3d builder

    Can 3d builder measure STL files and distances within the file. In other words, if I have a .25" thick square 4", with two square .25" towers on it at the very edges opposed to each other, the distance between should be 3.5", can I measure this in 3d builder?

    Thanks

  3. Measuring objects in 3d builder

    3d guru,

    Thanks for your question. I'm an engineer on the 3D Builder team and I'd like to take a shot at answering your question.

    Yes, measuring in 3D Builder is possible.

    Currently in the app the tools for measuring are 1) the numbers representing of the dimension of the object(s) and 2) the build platform (the checkered grid that represents the ground/floor) x and y axis rulers.

    I have tried to recreate what you described above in an attempt to show you how it would be possible.

    First step is to make sure 3D Builder is using the units of measurement you are interested in. You can do this by hitting the file button and then the settings button:

    Then select the units you want to use:

    Next I created the squares you described above. I selected the two squares you are trying to measure the distance between and put them up against one of the rulers on the build platform. From there I can get a rough idea of the distance between the two objects:

    Notice that the selected objects are also highlighted on the ruler on the build plate and because the units selected are in inches the marks on the ruler are also in inches. Using it we can see that the ruler marks add up to 3.5 inches.

    I hope this helps.

    Let us know if you have any other questions or feedback for 3D Builder.

    Thanks!

    Measuring objects in 3d builder

    Has this new measurement feature been removed again? I use(d) it quite a lot, because 3D builder is the fastest STL viewer/editor I have and it is really convenient to quickly check measurements with it, but I can't find it anymore. IIRC it was in the
    edit menu, but it isn't there anymore, can't find it in any other menu either.
