Measure Tool plugin


Recommended Posts

Posted · Measure Tool plugin

I'm working on a new plugin that adds a simple measuring aid to Cura:

In its current incarnation, the tool lets you pick (and drag) two points and shows the distance between these points.

 

A test-version can be downloaded here: MeasureTool

Download the file and drop it onto the buildplate in Cura as if you were opening a 3d model. Then restart Cura as instructed.

make it snap to corners on the model

That's a bit tricky and won't make it for the first official version.

make the dots transparent or swap them out with something that makes lining them up better

For now I have made them small, even if you zoom in (similar to how toolhandles of other tools stay the same size when you zoom in or out)

Understandable, and thanks for this!
