  • Z axis plane to plane meas.

    My height distance measurements from one plane to another are all coming out measuring 0. What am I doing wrong? How do I get the actual meas. distance?

    If you are doing 2D distances you have to be in the correct workplane. Here, read this thread and see if you can make any sense of it.

    Perpendicular distance between 2 planes.

      Adam,

      You will need to be in the correct working plane to see a distance, xy plane won't work if the difference is in the z axis, try yz or xz and see what happens.

        You can also do the 2-D distance as parrellel to an alignment axis so you should be able to ignore the workplane plane (I think).

          You have to be in one of the two correct workplanes in order for the axis you want to be selectable.

            I think you're correct, Matt Bells and whistles!

              Unless of course you make one of your planes the origin then you can just simply ask for the "Location" of the other plane in whatever axis and that way the workplane does not matter. It will only work with the "location" tool though.
