The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to measure and display the distance between any two points in the current document.


This command can be accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by:

  • Choosing the Analysis » Measure » Point to Point command from the main menus.
  • Clicking the  button on the CAMtastic Standard toolbar.
  • Using the Shift+M keyboard shortcut.


First, ensure that the CAMtastic panel is visible.

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a small cross, and you will enter measurement mode. Measurement involves the following sequence of actions:

  1. Position the cursor at the location where you wish to start measuring from, and click.
  2. Move the cursor to the end point and click again - as you move, a guide line will stretch from the start point to help you.
  3. Measurement information will appear on the Info tab of the CAMtastic panel, reporting the point-to-point distance measured, the coordinates of the start and end points, the X and Y distances, and the angle created from the horizontal.
  4. Continue measuring the distance between other points, or press Esc to exit measurement mode.


  1. All measurement information uses the current units for the workspace - either inches or millimeters. Units can be changed either from the CAMtastic panel, or the CAM Editor - Drawing Modes page of the Preferences dialog.
