# Measure objects

Use the Measure commands to measure angles, arcs, the distance between two points and between bolts in the model.

All measurements are temporary. The measurements appear in the model view window until you update or redraw the window.

The units depend on the settings in .

# Measure distances

You can measure horizontal, vertical and user-defined distances in the model.

# Measure angles

You can measure angles in the model.

# Measure arcs

You can measure the radius and length of an arc in the model.

# Measure bolt spacing

You can measure distances between bolts in a bolt group. Tekla Structures also gives you the edge distances between the bolts and a selected part.
