I've been working on making some measurements on a mesh of a pentagonal bipyramid mesh I made from a pentagonal "cone" as my starting base. I've tried working with the native Measure tool and using ctrl to snap the ruler to the mesh, but instead, it snaps to the surface of the "cone" I used to make the mesh?

I've also looked into using the MeasureIt addon and it looks really great, but again only works on the original cone shape I used to make my bipyramid.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to specifically measure the resultant modified shape from the basic cone? If there are tricks I should use for the measure tool, MeasureIt addon, or an entirely different add-on/plug-in, I'm all ears! I'm happy to provide any files or images that might be helpful.

  • $\begingroup$ Hello :). Please add some images to illustrate the problem. MeasureIt addon doesn't consider modifiers, but the simple measure tool snapping works just fine on generated geometry :) $\endgroup$ – Jachym Michal Dec 18 '20 at 22:10
