Building 3D objects

By default, measurements are made in reference to the floor. For more advanced measurements, you can build a 3D box or a plane to serve as a reference for measurement. 


  1. Click the [Measure] button in the sidebar.

  2. Click the [3D Object]button in the toolbar.

  3. Click on 2 points to create one side, drag, and click to create a 2D box. Drag pointer to the vertical axis and click at the desired height to create a 3D box. Once built, the 3D objects will display the LxWxH dimensions as well as the surface area (S) and the volume (V). 

  4. After building 3D objects, click the [Line]button.

  5. Select any two points 3D on objects and get measurements.

  6. You can save your 3D object by clicking on the [Save].

  7. To edit the height of the created 3D object, hover the mouse over the axis and click & drag the white circle. To edit the size of the 3D object, hover the mouse over the surface of the object and click and drag the white dot.


  8. To delete 3D object you have created, click the [Hand] button, select the object you want to delete, and then click the [Trash bin] at the bottom-center of the screen. If you want to delete all at once, click the [Broom] button.
