[3dsMax script] miauu's Live Measure Pro



miauu's Live Measure Pro provides several options for measuring various aspects of your scene - distances, areas, lengths, angles, sizes, axis difference, volumes, radius, diameter.

  • Each measurement can be controlled separately.
  • Export all measurements as a .txt file.
  • Add custom notes to each measurement.
  • Add custom notes to each measurement.
  • Manual update or update in real time.
  • User defined colors and captions for the measurements.
  • Color coded.
  • The measurements are always facing the viewport/camera.
  • Can keep track of your dimensions.
  • Save and Load all measurements with your scene. This will saves you time and the time of your colleagues.
  • Fully functional mini UI.




Works best when the display driver is Nitrous(3dsMax 2012 +)

Known Issues:
In 3dsMax 2009, 2010, 2011 the measurements in the viewport can flicker.
In 3dsMax 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 the special signs as cubic meter, square meter, degree, angle may not be shown properly.
In 3ds Max 2012 the Pixels on Screen measurements are not supported
In 3ds Max 2017 the color of the text that shows measurements in the viewport can't be changed.
In the .txt file with exported measurements some of the special signs as cubic meter, square meter, angle will not be shown properly.


The measurements, that are visible in the viewport can't be rendered.

This is a commersial script.
You can find more information here.

Render ability is in my ToDo list for the script. I have to find a way how to replace the drawings with real geometry.
The possible solution is to:
- prepare the scene
- render the scene(the measurements may be hidden)
- turn ON all measurements
- hide all geometry, but do not change the perspective or pan/rotate the viewport
- use GrabViewport script with alpha channel support to take an image of measurements
- use Photoshop/GIMP to combine both images
Long process, but it is better than nothing

Yeah, I agree, but for some very rare needs, it will work...until you make it out of the box!

miauu's Live Measure Pro version 1.8

miauu's Live Measure Pro version 1.8 is available.

Changelog:
- Added:
- Measure the area and volume as mm2, cm2, m2 or mm3, cm3, m3. Measure the total area of the selected object in object level. To do it press the Length/Area button with Middle mouse button.

- Fixed:
- when the group is selected and the Size is measured the script will measure the size of the whole group. To measure the size of the objects - open the group and select the desired object. If the open group is selected the script will measure its size.
When the group is selected and the Volume is measured the script will measure the volume of each object individually, so be careful when the group contains hundreds of objects.
