Calculate Summary Measurements

Use the Query tool to measure areas, volumes, entity counts, line lengths, bounding boxes, and more.

This tool can be utilized to identify where meshing failed or the solver created "bc warnings".
  1. Click the arrow next to the Home tool set, then select Query.
    Figure 1.

  2. Select entities to measure in the modeling window.

    The supported entity types are: parts, solids, surfaces, lines, points, and nodes.

    Based on the entity type, the available measurement information may change.

  3. Optional: Click in the microdialog to toggle bounding box visualization.
  4. Click Compute to generate measurements for you selection.
    Tip: You can copy printed information from the text box and use it for any other dialog.
