Hi Guys,

Wanted to share my last tutorial about measureit with Blender 2.8.
As usual the tutorail is available in French and in English.

  1. I see you're working in 2.80, but I don't see it available yet.

    1. Was the original blueprint created in Blender? I note there are some centerline lines on the "half pipe" feature. (The dashed lines indicating the center line that connects 2 or more arcs.)
    2. If a segment is not aligned with any particular global (or local, I suppose) axis, is there a way to get dimensions of the projection onto axes? E.G. a line from 0,0,0 to 1,1,1 is 1.73 units long, but it would be nice to be able to extract 1x1x1 projection lines, as well as angles from these projection lines without extra finagling with extra shapes and special freestyle edge rules.

  2. Nice, it may be useful to have the name automatically inserted with the size/number;
    if you want you override the automatic name you can do it but at least you can select the right one without thinking to much...

    Thank you,
