thank you so much, great addon Antonioya!
I cannot see the GIF when use your link.
You mean that totals are not right when zoom?
I mean some segments disappeared while scaling out of the current 3D view.
I know what is the problem. By default, when a point cannot be displayed, the measure is deleted. If you scale two vertex outside of the view, it’s impossible to calculate where to draw, so the measure is deleted. I need to think about this, because if you remove a vertex, I need delete the measure, but in this case, I need to keep it.
I select two vertices then click segment and nothing happens…I am I doing something wrong?
How do I control the anti aliasing? of the text?
most prob. you did not activate the ‘show’ button in the ‘Text’ area.
I did the same in the beginning.
this is really a ‘must have’ tool if you want to investigate any kind of object in terms of dimensions!
Hope it makes it into the release addons. Many thanks! Tremendous job!
You need press Show button to activate display
Is there no way to measure a total Edge Length (made up from multiple selected edges/vertices)?
For example on my mesh I’m attempting to measure a barrel of a cannon, I could do this with the old measure panel tool very easily but the only way i can get it to work with MeasureIt AddOn is to add a segment measurement with a Sum set, but I can’t get that to display visibly very well (just shows a ton of smaller vertex->vertex measurements).
I’m going to develop something to cover this requirement.
EDIT: seems solved, had to click on view Raw.
Hi Antonioya, tried to download 1.4 and 1.5 from Github but when i try to open or extract it says it is damaged. Any ideas?
Now, with version v1.5.1 you can include the sum groups in the text using <#letter>. For example, you could add: The length is <#A> and the total height is <#B>. MeasureIt will replace these tags with the correct value.
Look an example here: https://plus.google.com/112747577646306567335/posts/cLTzKzU5DWZ
Ho! very good idea Antonio.
@Antonioya How to render it with alpha? The final image seems to be always with black background.
Today is not possible. THis is something I’m working on. I would like to be able to render all measures in a transparent PNG.
I did see someone used GIF here successfully. And, when uploading images, it was listed with other acceptable formats on the popup window. That’s why I was Sooooo confused.
