I’m pretty new to blender and started with sketchup. I find overall that it is much more powerful software that is generally not as buggy - and can be used for many more things.
Still, I struggle with one tool in particular, the measure tool. When I want to measure from a vertex to vertex, I turn on snapping and can use the ctrl key to snap to the second vertex but for some reason I can’t do that with the first one. And so I zoom in very far to click on the first point then go all the way across the the other point. It is always wrong - really. So I zoom in even further to the first point and I see that it didn’t snap to this point. I mean, with ALL of the amazing capacities of blender this definitely surprises me.
I’m not expecting the great features of the measure from sketchup like resize the model by measuring a distance and rescaling it to that size - such as for a doorway or table height or other known quality, nor for the easy snap to x y or z direction. But am I missing something - is there a good snappable add-on I don’t know about?
I realize that blender is not a cad software, but I hope you understand that the measure tool seems super underdeveloped given the other aspects of blender that are now so sophisticated. Thanks for any clarity!
