This article will cover the Identify and Measure tools in the Points tab in the ribbon. To access these tools you must have a point database loaded into your EdgeWise project. From here, select the point database in the model selection pane and click on the Points tab in the ribbon. You should see a Identify and Measure tool on the left-hand side of the Points tab.
Identify allows you to identify a point’s xyz coordinate—in the same coordinate system as the original scan—as well as the current color of the point. To use this tool simply click the button and then click a point within the viewing area.
The Measure tool measures the distance between two selected points. To use this tool simply click the button and then click a starting point within the viewing area. A line will now be drawn from the starting point to wherever the mouse cursor currently is. Now click a second point somewhere within the viewing area. A dialog will pop up telling you the distance between the points. You can adjust these display units under the Options menu in the upper-right corner of the application (Metric/Imperial Units).
