It would be nice to have measurement annotations on sketches as well so that when creating models from the sketches, tapping on the measurement on the sketches automatically puts the value in the relevant part or focused dimension on the 3d model. At the moment it is such a manual task to retype sketch measurements on to the various dimensions of the 3d model especially when they come as decimals and when there is many of them. A second companion feature to this one should allow you to tap the info bar for a piece of information like the angle of two coincident lines shown there and automatically have it copy this data on to the active (focused) annotation on the sketch. This second feature should enable quick copy of complex and decimal values from the info bar to the sketch annotation for easy use throughout the model. I believe some other tools like auto desk have this feature.
The problem that this feature will solve:
Quickly copy measurements from info bar to the sketche annotations and finally to various parts of the model
Consider adding screenshots and as many details as possible, to help the Shapr3D team and the community understand why you need this feature. Describing your workflow helps us building the right feature.
Right now when drawing complex shapes such as an icosahedron or other platonic solids, there are computations, including those provided at the bottom info bar of design window that are determined during the sketching phase that may not be easy to remember or easy to get to especially if you have layers of sketches some hidden from the info bar or are too many to be noted down manually somewhere to then copy later. It would be much better to have an intelligent info bar and sketch annotations that are clickable to copy to the clip board or copied directly to the dimension on the 3d object on tapping the info bar or the sketch annotation
Brief description of the outcomes that you expect from this feature:
This feature will help to do away with memorizing and manually retyping measurements from sketches which can be prone to errors because you annotate the measurement once on the sketch (copied via tapping the info bar for instance) and now just tap the measurement from the sketch annotation to input anywhere on any 3d object dimension
What can’t you achieve without this feature?
Quick copy of measurements without error from various locations in the design.
Is this a workflow blocker for you? Is this why you can’t use Shapr3D for work? Is this slowing you down?
Yes, this slows down workflow of complex objects significantly.
