ℹ️ You can also create dimensioned 2D drawings.
Every sketch, face, and body in Shapr3D is built with precise parameters. To view the exact measurements of elements in the models you create, use the Measurement Mode. When you select this feature, a panel pops up where you can select and pin the exact measurements of selected elements. The popup panel stays open while you work on your model, and you can drag this panel anywhere on your screen.
To view or pin measurements using the Measurement Mode, follow these steps:
 Select Measurements to open the popup panel.
 Select the elements of your model that you want to measure.
 View the measurement of the selected objects under Current Measurements in the Measurements panel.
 To pin a measurement, select the pin symbol beside the measurement you want to pin.
A pinned measurement adds an annotation to your model to help you visualize or communicate the measurement better.  View your pinned measurements anytime under Pinned Measurements.
 To unpin a measurement, select the unpin symbol beside the pinned measurement.
 To delete a pinned measurement after you’re done using the Measurement Mode, go back to the popup panel. From here, swipe the pinned measurement to the left and then select the delete icon beside the pinned measurement.
For quick reference, select the object to see the selection information at the bottom of the screen. The selection information includes the measurement details of the selected object.
Depending on the type of object you select, you can view the following quantitative data:

Icon 

Description 



Length of a line. If you select multiple lines, the sum is shown. 



Area of a face. If you select multiple faces, the sum is shown. 



The volume of a body. If you select multiple bodies, the sum is shown. 



The radius of an arc, circle, sphere, cone, or cylinder. 



The diameter of an arc, circle, sphere, cone, or cylinder. 



The angle between any two lines or two faces. If you select an arc, its central angle is shown. 



A perpendicular angle between two lines or two faces. 



The shortest distance between two lines, arcs, circles, nonparallel faces, or bodies. It can also be the shortest distance between any combination of two of the following: circle, arc, line, face, or body. 



The maximum distance between a line and an arc or a circle. 



The central distance between a center point or central axis and any of the following: line, arc, circle, parallel face, or body. Center points are calculated in the case of circles, cones, and spheres. In case of bodies, the distance from the center of gravity is calculated. 




The distance between two parallel items such as sketches, edges, and faces. Note that it is possible to calculate the distance between an edge and a parallel face. This also shows the radial difference of concentric arcs, circles, spheres, and cylinders. 




The distance on the Xaxis between two lines, arcs, circles, nonparallel faces, or bodies. It can also be the distance between a combination of two of the following: circle, arc, line, face, and body. 




The distance on the Yaxis between two lines, arcs, circles, nonparallel faces, or bodies. It can also be the distance between a combination of two of the following: circle, arc, line, face, and body. 




The distance on the Zaxis between two lines, arcs, circles, nonparallel faces, or bodies. It can also be the distance between a combination of two of the following: circle, arc, line, face, and body.
