Measuring a wall:

  1. Setup the Flexijet, and connect to it. When the Flexijet’s screen is Green (waiting for incoming Application Connections), Open Flexijet Stone software.
  2. Auto-level the Flexijet (anytime setting up, after moving, or starting a new project).

  3. If measuring only a wall: In the ‘Measurement’ ribbon, click on ‘New Project’. This is different from measuring countertops because the ‘Countertop’ button creates a project folder for you automatically! This will make a root/project folder in the File Explorer.

  1. Now, click the New Folder button. The New Folder dialog window will pop up, allowing you to name the new folder and choose the type of plane. For vertical surfaces, select the vertical plane button on this window.

  1. You will be prompted to measure 2 points to set the vertical surface to set the plane – on the face towards the left, and on the face towards the right. These 2 points will define the vertical plane’s location, extending straight up and down, and on the plane between these 2 points.

  1. Your folder structure should show this wall as active.

  1. Now, measure the geometry into this wall using Multiple Lines and Polylines. Similar to how a countertop is measured but on a vertical plane, measure the surfaces that intersect to the wall to capture the outside shape of the wall with Multiple Lines for straight sections, and Polylines/Lines for scribed sections. Each measured point will be flattened perpendicularly to the vertical plane.

  1. For additional walls, click back on the root (Project) folder, and follow the steps above to create the folder and set the plane for each additional wall.

To measure the elevation of a wall manually, use Distance Point to Plane and measure on the surface of the wall. A measurement point with a distance between that point and the set plane will be drawn on screen.
