measurement of geometry
 
Hello everybody,

I created a complex geomtry, imported it to Gambit and meshed it. Does anybody know whether there is a way to measure this geomtry (length of the single parts, diameter etc.)? I have seen that there is a "ruler option" at Gambit, but due to the complexity of the problem it would much better, if I could select two points of the geometry and measure the length in between (or something similar). Does anybody know how I could solve this problem (maybe by using another software/freeware which can import *.neu or *.msh files.The software I have access to is Gambit and Fluent). Unfortunately I cannot save the geometry as *.stp or *.igs, due to non-real parts at the geometry.

Thank you in advance!
With best regards,
Lilly

to measure distance between 2 points, here is what I do:
Create edge from the 2 points, and go to summarize edges.
It will give you the length from the edge.
Then delete your edge if you don't need it anymore.

That's a good advice! Thank you -mAx-!
