This is a ScanTo3D newbie question. I couldn't find a discussion searching for "measure mesh". I am looking at using ScanTo3D to reduce the number of field measurements I need to make for some fairly large pieces of equipment. I have a sample mesh I imported using ScanTo3D on another PC - I don't have ScanTo3D on my setup - but I am unable to use the measure tool to measure points on the resulting mesh, say to other mesh points or to planes. Do I need to have ScanTo3D available on my machine to enable mesh measurements? Or is there am option I need to set or a tool other than the measure tool I need to use?
FYI I have an error message saying "The mesh has topological errors!". Maybe I need to try re-importing the mesh with different settings?
I communicated with our reseller's tech guy about this. He told me there is a final step I need to perform in ScanTo3D after the mesh has been imported, smoothed, etc. The step is to change the mesh into a surface or solid. After that, points on the SW entity can be measured with the SW measure tool.in standard SW Office: ScanTo3D (SW Office Premium) is required only for mesh import & processing; after the surface or solid has been created it is no longer required.
