Measuring the CAD geometry and features is one of the most important tool to quickly analyze the component. We have improved the Measure tool in Glovius to enable our users to quickly measure the various distances in the CAD components. We call this feature Assistive Measure and it is an extension of our Assistive Measure for Points feature. This enhancement will enable to quickly check the dimensions between various entities in your component faster.
To use this feature, open a model, click on Measure tool and select a geometric entity – linear edge, circular edge or a surface. The value is immediately displayed as a markup. Now as you move towards another entity ( say an edge ) we automatically calculate the appropriate measure value and display it for your reference. You can either choose to place the measure markup or move to another edge. Glovius quickly recomputes and displays the new measure value.
