Geometry Measurement Tool

It would be convenient to have a measurement tool within Simscale. Frequently I need to measure an area, edge length, or distance between two points and right now I have to back and forth between Simscale and my cad package to get this done.

Reasons for measuring include, finding an area to apply a force as a pressure, measuring an edge to determine mesh refinement, measuring a distance to apply a remote force.

Iā€™d like to add position data to this, so if I select a node then it returns the coordinate. This is useful for defining origins for cylindric primitives etc.

Also, the ability to select nodes and edges seem to have been lost for simple geometries, I expect nodes to be created on edges and edges created from faces.

These two things go hand in hand.

Kind regards,

This topic is really old. But im also missing some kind of measurment tool.


Hi Roschi,

Agree. Sometimes it is a little frustrating to re-measure a geometry offline. Would be nice to have a basic measurement tool for starters.
