    Measure distance to lofted surface

    John Sutherland

      I want to measure the vertical distance from an edge. vertex or horizontal face of a brick to the surface of the ground.

       

      The measure tool allows me to select suitable references but fails to calculate.

       

      I have tried several workarounds but they all fail.

       

      Is it possible to measure to a lofted surface?

          I solved my problem by opening a sketch on the end face of the slab and requesting an intersection line between the sketch plane and the lofted ground surface.

           

          After creating a virtual sharp where the intersection line cuts the vertical sketch line, I could dimension and measure the depth of fill between natural ground and the underside of the slab.
