# Advanced Measurement

Measures the length of a tube between first and last radii selections—generates the total centerline length.

Measures the shortest distance between two sets of points or surfaces.

Calculates the minimum thickness of a set of points or surfaces.

Measures the shortest distance between two edges on the model.

Measures the shortest distance between two surfaces.

Measures the shortest distance from a selected arc center point to a surface.

Determines the center point of a boundary defined by connected edges. SpinFire Ultimate will automatically find the connected edges that form the boundary and then determine the center point.

You may need to click more than one edge for SpinFire Ultimate to be able to determine the boundary center. For example, if you click an edge on a cube, SpinFire Ultimate will not know which square boundary you want to define. When you click a second edge, SpinFire Ultimate will then be able to calculate the boundary and determine the center point.

Calculates the area of a boundary defined by connected edges. SpinFire Ultimate will automatically find the connected edges that form the boundary and then determine the boundary area.

You may need to click more than one edge for SpinFire Ultimate to be able to determine the boundary area. For example, if you click an edge on a cube, SpinFire Ultimate will not know which square boundary you want to define. When you click a second edge, SpinFire Ultimate will then be able to calculate the boundary and determine the area.

Note

This command can also be used to determine the area of a void. The accuracy of the measurement depends on the degree of tessellation specified by the importer settings (greater tessellation means greater accuracy and longer processing time).

Calculates the volume of a space defined by connected surfaces. You may need to click more than one surface for SpinFire Ultimate to be able to determine volume.

Note

This command can also be used to determine the volume of a void. The accuracy of the measurement depends on the degree of tessellation specified by the importer settings (greater tessellation means greater accuracy and longer processing time).
