Dimensions 0.0.0 (test of concept)

Posted in Addon, Blender 2.54b, Dimensions, Experimental on September 17, 2010 by seminumerical


    This addon lets you add dimension objects to measure distances in real time. May be helpful in simple CAD drawings of mechanics or architecture. Feel free to try it for yourself.
    Warning This is an test of a concept but it may still be somewhat useful.



  • Blender 2.54b
  • Add as many dimension objects as you like
  • Move them to where you want
  • Start and endpoint can be attached to different objects and follow when you move, scale and rotate.
  • Shows the distance in BU (blender units)
  • Keep your scene neat and tidy by putting them in a separate layer. Also works with hide/unhide.

Release Notes

    This is an experiment. So there is lots of stuff that is a bit flaky.
