With the command Series of Measurements Parallel to plane, we define a series of measurements that will be measured parallel to a particular plane. This series of measurements is used to measure at a distance parallel to a particular plane, and can be used with all 3 types of planes. This function can be used to scan, for example, a doorway or window opening at a plane, or an opening such as a bathtub
- From the submenu of the command Start series of measurements, select the command ‘Series of measurements parallel to plane’.
- In the command window, you will be prompted to select the folder from which the plane will be referenced. Click on the folder you wish to reference. NOTE: you CANNOT click on the active folder. Before starting the command, selecting the ‘Home’ folder as active will allow you to reference the plane of another folder.
- Choose the desired settings in the Define Series of Measurements window.
The maximum measuring tolerance to the virtual plane, which is prompted by the series of measurements window, is defined with a default value of 0.1”. A greater value will allow for a larger tolerance to the plane along which Flexijet will measure.
- Now, measure (or click) a point to define the start point of measurements. NOTE: The location of this point relative to the reference plane will define the ‘virtual plane’ where the points will be measured.
- Measure (or click) a point in the direction of the series of measurements, several inches away from the first point.
- Measure (or click) a point where the series of measurements will end.
- The command window will now display ‘Series of measurements added!’. You will now be prompted in the command window to measure a first point again, in order to create additional series of measurements with the same settings, if desired. Click ‘Cancel’ or ‘Esc’ to end.
- To start the series of measurements, first select the target folder for your series of measurements. The measurements will be created in the currently active folder. Then, click on the ‘Start Series of Measurements’ button icon. Flexijet will begin the defined series of measurement(s).
