This function calculates distance between two model nodes. After clicking in the edit toolbar, the above dialog window will be displayed. To calculate distance, enter the desired node numbers in the corresponding fields or click and select the desired nodes in 3D view.

Conversely, you can select two nodes in the 3D view and click . The selected nodes will be displayed automatically in corresponding fields and distance will be calculated.

Property | Description |

Distance from node |
Node from which distance will be calculated |

Distance to node |
Node to which distance will be calculated |

Shortest distance |
Equal to the square root of squares of the projections of the line between the nodes on the global coordinate axes |

Sum of Pipe Lengths |
The distance between nodes following the pipe axes |

Distance projection on the X axis |
Projection of the line between the nodes on the global X axis |

Distance projection on the Y axis |
Projection of the line between the nodes on the global Y axis |

Distance projection on the Z axis |
