Any ideas on measuring a section of an existing STL file?



  • I have an STL file, and I need to make a part that exactly fits over a protrusion on the part defined by the STL file. Any idea how to measure the width, height, etc... of that protrusion?

    Of course, you can use the STL design to subtract from another design. Is that not accurate enough for your needs?

    Measuring from point to point, or across a design isn’t possible. But you can always take a small slice of a design, and measure that using bounds.
