Way to measure points on circumference of an object?

(Jch51502) #1

Hi, is there a way to measure/determine points on a rounded surface via the circumference? Kinda like taking a tape measure and wrapping it around an object? I see there is the CreateUVCurve command, it would be similar to that I guess, thx

Hello - you can Project a line or curve onto a surface and use Length to get the length of the result - depending on the situation that might do it. You can also try InterpCrvOnSrf and measure the result.

Also, to measure between two points on a single surface, ShortPath and then Length on the result.
