It's up at http://moi3d.com/beta.htm , I'll update this tomorrow with release notes.

The main new things are a new detailed object properties dialog that has options for calculating curve length, surface area and volume and Dimensions are working under the "Dim" tab of the side pane now.

There are still some areas to finish up like getting dimensions to export to DXF and PDF/AI formats, currently they are only saved to .3dm format. Also I'm going to put together some property presets for dimensions.

Love the dimensions – Easy to use and very intuitive.

Will there be any way to link the dimensions to the object? That way when I move the object the dimensions move as well?

The best alternative I see at the moment is to select the object and the dimensions, give the combination an Object name, and select via the Objects panel before moving.

However, doing that makes the Move Tool and the Alignment shortcut buttons behave incorrectly because the boundary box no longer matches the object.

Hello,

I'm noticing some different behavior when trying to use Align with the Dimension tools. It seems when I draw a dimension then try to align using the Align tool it the alignment drag point is offset from the annotation by a variable amount. Is this normal behavior?

Also, is there a way to place the text of a dimension outside of the measurement and flip the arrowheads? Otherwise for small measurements the annotation has a tendency to collapse in on itself and it becomes unreadable.

Any chance for curved leaders or aligned spacing for stacked measurements?

As usual, awesome update, thanks.

Hello Michael,
the dimension scripts are working fine.
I appreciate your program very much and it is always fun to design models for my 3d printer with it.
Greetings

Can we make dimension in the 3D view ?

What is the strategy ?

Can you make a little video about dimension in the 3D view ?



For top one I can draw it on the ground then move it...
For the diagonal it's easy in using the other views but...directly in the 3D view full screen?

Ok no problem in using Cplan one for the diagonal, one for top one :)
That works fine but maybe that is not the good strategy ?
It's curious that dimension can't works directly in the normal 3D world for any face! :)

@Charlie,

> It works! I measured things!

Thanks for the screenshot, those are looking really nice if I don't say so myself! :)



@Pilou,

Nope the lines in the strings file that start with ; are comments meant to give some information to translators, they are not intended to be translated themselves.

Hi Ed,

re:

> I move the object the dimensions move as well?

Not for V4, but I'd probably think of solving this with a general purpose "keep things together" grouping mechanism rather than something special just for dimensions alone.

Hmmm, yeah currently selected dimensions contribute any model space points that they have in them to the bounding box size but I can see how that can be troublesome.

But when they don't contribute it's kind of strange that you don't get a 2D edit frame on them when they are selected themselves.

Maybe they should only do that when only annotation objects are selected and no other object types?

Hi Pilou,

re:

Well dimensions are focused on making a measurement in a 2D projected view. They are planar objects and when you create them they are projected onto the view's construction plane. You can make them in the 3D view, they are just projected down to the the 3D view's construction plane.

If you want that plane to be somewhere else you can use View > CPlane to set the construction plane to one of your box's faces before you create the dimension.

:) It's that I have found! But believed that was another tricky thing ...
Because using the Cplan is not so easy for novice...



In the normal 3D view you can rotate the line of arrow before the second Click...
...it's a little perturbating to not can Click it on Z altitude!

A simple line yes! :) Understand that can be a little frustration :)

Hmmm yeah it's kind of like they're a little lazy with Transform > Align. That's definitely a bug, not intentional. I'll see about squashing it thanks for reporting it!

There isn't anything set up for that currently. Do you think it should happen automatically when the text doesn't fit at the current zoom level or is it better to have an option that flips it manually and stays that way at all zoom levels?


> Any chance for curved leaders or aligned spacing for stacked measurements?

I really wanted to do curved leaders but it was going to be difficult enough that it's punted out after v4.

Could you show an example of the stacked measurement spacing? Is that something like a property value you want to adjust later on or would it be some option in the drawing commands?


Thanks, - Michael

Select your dimension
then press Detail... Up Right Corner Screen

Click on the right of the Word Font
then Choose what you wish and Press OK then Close :)
