Working with Render Reality, Macouno has published a helpful script designed to allow measurements in Blender. Especially useful for architects (see our previous post about CAD modeling), this script allows scalability, measurements in several units and even render time results.
A number of options are available and as shown in the gui below:
The script can perform many useful operations such as:
- Automatically clean old measurements when making a new measurement.
- Make measurements with or without creation of 3d measurement objects.
- Measure from mesh to mesh.
- Measure within a mesh from selected edge to edge, vertex to vertex, face to face, etc.
While this script was originally developed commercially for Render Reality LLC, they agreed to release it under the GPL license.
