I've been a Blender user since before it went open source and was a minor dev team member during the Elephants Dream days. Currently, I'm doing Blender tutorials on YouTube.


  1. Technically this creates views that can be added to a drawing rather than a drawing itself. Will there be drawing borders in a later update? Also, if you are working with a building then you need to be able to create section lines. Having multiple instances of a large model rotated isn't really feasible. Measurable has great potential, fingers crossed it will be maintained.

  2. Good morning, Are you having or know of problems with Measurable in Blender 4.0.1? I just upgraded and while Measurable seems to install it doesn't show up as an option in Add-Ons
