2D Draw Tutorial


Measuring a Room

 

 


Measuring a paving area

 



TIP:  Remember to pause for longer measurements. If you think it will take you longer than 6-8 seconds to get to your next point, break it down, by pausing

 



How to suspend and resume a measurement

Use this to re-start a measurement from a known point, without returning to the start or to get around obstacles.

 



TIP:  Note, you must resume the measurement from the exact point you suspended the measurement, ensuring the device is also in the same orientation.


SETTINGS:  


Select the gear icon at the bottom of the screen.

To toggle the following settings:

• Auto-Join Start/Finish Points:
This will automatically join the first and last points measured after you finish the measurement. (Use this only when you are returning to the same start point)

• Auto Ignore points:
This will automatically "Ignore" points along the same plane, after you finish the measurement. Eliminating the need to manually ignore individual points after the measurement.

• Auto-Square Up:
This will automatically square up the drawing after you finish a measurement. Corners that are almost 90 degrees will be adjusted to 90 degrees.

• Square Up strength:
Determines how close to 90 degrees each corner needs to be, for 'Square-up' to adjust it to 90 degrees.

• Show Last Leg:
Displays a line joining the most recent point to the start point.

• Show start/finish error:
Displays an error, based on the distance between the start and finish points, as a percentage of the total perimeter distance.Use this number as an approximate indication of the quality of a measurement. Aim for the error to be less than 1%, while expert users should aim to achieve less than 0.5%. Note: the error is only displayed when either 'Join start/finish points' is turned on or 'Show Last Leg' is turned on.

• Line Labels
Allows you to show & hide dimensions on screen and for exporting. You can also switch to line numbers, ideal for when you are exporting complex drawing where the dimension labels are overlapping.
