Is there a way to measure the distance in BU's from edge to edge, or Vertex to vertex in a specific axis?
I do understand that blender is not a CAD program, But coming from a CAD background, I would find this extremely useful

Thanks for the help

You can check out the scripts in the CAD section here

I've never used any of them so i can't comment in that area but there might be something you're looking for.

I think it's better for you to use the "edge length" button when you are in editing mode (F9), you can see the length of edges selected and way more easy than use a Caliper script for exemple.

Check out this page http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:Manual/Modelling/Meshes

Other buttons could be useful for you too
