    Thickness Analysis (New Custom Feature!)  


With this custom feature, you can easily analyze the thickness of multiple faces. Special thanks to @Jacob_Corder for some performance tips.

This feature is sponsored by CADSharp.com. If your daily modeling is repetitive, consider automating your process with CADSharp to save time. CADSharp specializes in automation by utilizing custom features and API. 


Set limits and report errors if they are exceeded:

  - Relevant values are stored as variables in the Variable table on the right side of your screen.
  - For large selections, uncheck "Analyze thickness" until you have created your selections.

Import functions to use with your own custom features:

Use these functions in your own custom features by placing the following import at the top of you code.

  - thicknessAnalysisPascoe()   //Analyzes the thickness between two or more surfaces.
  - faceGridPascoe()                  //Splits the selected face into a grid.
  - colorGradientPascoe()        //Returns a color based on a fractional input.
import(path : "55e98155dca4ba4e8049a18d/264916e1790d6b19b353dda6/c1fcec00ad4e3a44bd7f5a8c", version : "364ad9f0f694974f4028c05c");
