Description


Summary 
2D drawings
3D models

Measures all known information about one or more selected parts. A Summary measurement includes the following information, depending on the representation you are measuring:
• 2D drawing—Total length of two or more entities
• 3D model—Total length, area, perimeter, and volume data for one or more edges, surfaces, or parts. If a part has a material assigned, the summary also includes the part’s mass, centroid, center of gravity and envelope
The information is displayed in the graphics area with a leader line from the summary information to each item that is measured.


Length 
2D drawings
3D models

Measures the length or perimeter of the selected edge or curve, or a chain of selected edges or curves.


Distance 
2D drawings
3D models

Measures the distance between two or more entities.


Angle 
2D drawings
3D models

Measures the angle between two linear entities.


Diameter 
2D drawings
3D models

Measures the diameter or radius of a selected entity.


Area 
3D models

Measures the area of a selected entity. If you select two or more reference entities for measurement, the total area for all the entities is reported. The selected entities do not need to be connected nor do they need to be the same entity type.


Mass Properties 
3D models

Measures the volume, mass and center of gravity of a part or assembly.


Envelope 
3D models

Measures the bounding box around one or more parts. You can set an Envelope measurement to include one of the following data sets:
• Extents—Length, width, and height.
• Corner Coordinates—Coordinates for each of the corners.


Center of Gravity

3D models

Measures and places a graphic symbol for the center of gravity of one or more selected parts or assemblies.
