Move to surface/Distance between surfaces

Hey all, two questions both similar problems.
First, is it possible to measure the distance between one surface and another? There are times when using “distance” with snaps and smart track are not able to get the spot I want to measure.
Second, is it possible to move one surface just until it collides with the other surface?

Hello - here’s a script that should help with both - it will tell you the clearance and place a line at the closest points, which you can use (end snap) to move the objects to touch. (2.0 KB)

To use the Python script use RunPythonScript, or a macro:

_-RunPythonScript "Full path to py file inside double-quotes"


Hi, @pascal
Can be set to print both options; maximum and minimum distance? :pleading_face:

Thank you!
