I am trying to see if there are any tool extensions for Cura 4.3.0 that allow you to measure certain points of your project in case you need to diagnose a problem with the project relating to its thickness or length, etc. This way you can check it too see if it's a Cura setting or you need  to go back to the drawing board. Not a extremely important extension, just a quick tool to point you in the right direction. I haven't seen any and just thought of this.  Don't really know if or how useful it may be.  Thanks in advance for any help....  I only have 6 months experience with 3D printing and designing.

    If you click on a part you can see the bounding box in X,y, and Z.  That's usually good enough for me to check that the dimensions are about right (or even exactly right).

    This would be a great tool, gr5 I agree that is a good way to measure, especially if its a square/box but i would like to measure holes inside the project, and there's no easy way to do that.

     

    BUT! i have found a temp solution, you can create square box by pressing E (where you choose if you want it to be "print as model or print as support") it creates it 10mm x 10mm x 10mm but you can resize it to what you want the hole to be, and then move it in the hole to measure it.
