Mesauring Bolts and holes in BimSight

I would like to see some better snaps for things like bolts and holes. Its very difficult to measure them. Picking centers would likely be best.

Hi Orie, Thanks for sharing this idea. We are continuously developing the measuring tools and we'll add this on the list of possible improvements. BR Heikki

Being able to chose snaps for measuring would be a great improvement. Ideally, implementing something similar to tekla structures with the snaps toolbar or even the right-click temporary snaps. I was hoping to see it in v1.9, but without luck. I tend to have difficulties using the measuring tool to snap where I would like it to be, especially when trying to obtain vertical dimensions. It's almost as if it was only really meant to measure horizontally.

Seems like in two years nothing improved on this topic!! The poor posibility's of showing problems in a model to a client or partner is the reason why I don't use Tekla Bimsight.

I agree with Orie, Alex and Hugo, measuring in BIMsight is not as good as it needs to be and the fact you can't pick the centre of a bolt or hole is a suprising omission. If people can't do what they want to do they will find another tool, even if they have to pay for it.

I also agree. How are we supposed to use this program in the field on an ipad if you cant utilize it fully. It becomes pointless almost.
