Trace - Tutorial


Use Trace Mode to capture and draw the trajectory based on the 'flight path' of your Moasure device's reference point.

• To measure using Trace mode, start the measurement, then move the Moasure device through the air, close to the object being measured, while maintaining the device's reference point aligned with the object being measured.

• While tracing around the object being measured, make sure not to touch the object with the Moasure device; always keep at least a small gap between the Moasure device and the object.

• As with all measuring modes and longer measurements, you will need to place the device on a stationary surface every 6-8 seconds (please follow the on-screen and audible feedback for this).

• Trajectory points along the flight path can be set in the settings menu.

• Moasure always captures points along the flight path in 3D i.e. as a series of 3D co-ordinates. However, you can view and export the captured data in either 2D or 3D, by toggling the 'view' setting.

• When you toggle between the 2D and 3D views, the perimeter distance will adjust accordingly:

  • In '2D Plan' view, the perimeter measurement is the horizontal distance travelled;

  • In '2D Best-fit Plane' view, the perimeter measurement is the distance travelled in the best-fit plane;

  • In '3D' view, the perimeter value is the total flight path distance travelled.

• If you are measuring a closed shape (i.e. finishing the measurement at the same point as you started the measurement), you can turn on the 'Show Start/Finish Error %' setting to provide 'confidence feedback' on your measurement. For most closed measurements, you should aim to achieve an error of 1% or less.
