What is 3DMeasure, a Revit Plugin for 3D measurement

The 3DMeasure tool is a plugin for Autodesk® Revit® which allows you to measure in a 3D view by selecting 2 points or an existing edge.

3DMeasure Camilion 6

Starting the plugin

To start the plugin, simply click on the 3DMeasure button located in the Camilion tab.

A dialog box will appear and you will be prompted to select 2 points.

Tip: You can configure a keyboard shortcut such as 3D to start the plugin and take measurements instantly.


Modeless dialog

This plugin uses a modeless dialog, this means that you can keep the dialog box open and keep working on your revit model. If you close the dialog box, it will always appear in the last place you positioned it.

Pressing the down arrow expands the dialog to reveal more data and buttons.

Copy to Clipboard

Copies the data displayed in the dialog box to your clipboard. Simply press Ctrl + v to paste it where you wish.


The data

3DMeasure Camilion 17

Distance (b)

The first textbox shows the length of the line being measured in project units


Units & rounding (c)

The units and rounding used are taken from the project units set in the revit file.

Tip: To see the project units, use the keyboard shortcut UN


Deltas (d)

The Delta (Δ) is the difference between the components of the first point minus the components of the second point. The units are in project units.

Δx: X of Point 1 minus X of Point 2
Δy: Y of Point 1 minus Y of Point 2
Δz: Z of Point 1 minus Z of Point 2


Coordinates (e)

The coordinates of both points are represented in project units and change depending on the coordinate base chosen.


Coordinate Base

At any moment you can switch betweeen the following coordinate bases:

Internal origin: The internal origin is the starting point for the internal coordinate system, which provides the basis for positioning all elements in the model.
Project Base Point: Defines the origin (0,0,0) of the project coordinate system.
Survey Point: Identifies a real-world location near the model, such as a corner of the project site or the intersection of 2 property lines.
The coordinates will update simultaneously.


Known issues

When selecting a point on a linked model, a few tab key presses may be required to snap correctly if the linked model’s origin does not coincide with the host’s model origin. This is currently a limitation of Revit’s positioning method.
