distanceInfo

Function

Distance Info

Creates a dialog to display the X, Y, Z, XY, YZ and XZ linear distances associated with a 'distanceDimension' node.

Usage

Create a distanceDimension node (Modify->Measure->Distance Tool) and, with the distanceDimension node selected, run distanceInfo. A window will open and display the 1D and 2D dimensions for the 3D distance displayed. The distanceDimension node which is currently being evaluated is labeled at the top of the dialog.

The Distance Info window will update interactively each time you select a distanceDimension node. To re-evaluate the displayed values without selecting (or re-selecting) the currently evaluated distanceDimension node, click the Update button.
