Measurements ARE NOT visible in 3D Showcase. Measurements are only visible in Edit mode and in Snapshots of Dollhouse/Floorplan where you enabled Assets.

Performance may be limited if you have 100 or more measurements in your space.

Move the cursor and the placement sphere will move along the surface. The placement sphere shows the underlying geometry rather than the panoramic imagery. If the sphere is black, that means there is no underlying geometry and you will not get a good measurement. Click where you want to start measuring.

Next click the end of the measurement point. Your measurement will appear on the side.

If you click on a surface again it will start a new measurement. To stop creating new measurements click the escape key.

 

If you would like to measure floor to ceiling or from one wall to another you can do so in Inside View by simply double clicking on the floor/wall and the measurement will shoot over to the ceiling/other wall.

Find Room Dimensions

To Measure rooms go to Floor Plan View in Edit mode.

Select the ruler icon from the side toolbar. A menu will pop out. Select "Add".

Click on one side of the room and then click again across the room. The system will attempt to keep the measurement perpendicular to the walls to help with accuracy.
