## Do STL files have measurements?

As STL files do not save the physical dimension of a unit, a CAM system will ask for it. Typical units are mm and inch. STL can also be used for interchanging data between CAD/CAM systems and computational environments such as Mathematica.

## How do you measure a 3D model?

Measure the 3D model: To measure the distance between two positions on the 3D model, click to set a start point. Then move the pointer to another location or an edge. To measure the circumference of a round shape, move the pointer to the edge of the shape so that a circle appears, and click once.

## Can you measure in 3D Viewer?

Clicking the Ruler icon in the bottom toolbar of the 3D viewer activates the point-to-point measurement tool. Simply locate and click the point on the surface of your model where you want to start your measurement, and then click the point on your model where you want to measure to.

## How do you measure a 3D builder?

Measure is a two-point tool to measure objects. The first click will set the first point and clicking twice will set the second point, which then displays the distance between the two points. This tool can also prove to be handy if you’re designing objects designed to fit or mount other objects.
