    @hoang_pham , The Onshape measure tool is available in Part Studios, for sketches and parts, and in Assemblies for parts and assemblies; it appears in the bottom right corner of the interface when a selection is made:

    The measure tool displays measurements dynamically whenever you select entities.

    1) Select any entity. The measure tool show measurements for that entity.

    2) Select another entity. The measure tool shows measurements between the entities.
    Note the triangle on the measure tool. Clicking it shows more measurements.

    You can use the information displayed to enter values elsewhere in the system, for example, as a dimension:

    With the Measurement dialog expanded, click and drag to highlight the value you want to copy:

    • Before releasing the mouse button when highlighting, use keyboard shortcuts to copy the value
    • OR after releasing the mouse button when highlighting, open the Measure dialog again (the value will still be highlighted) and use keyboard shortcuts to copy the value.
    • For more detail kindly refer below link.

    ok, the answer is here, https://www.onshape.com/cad-blog/introducing-onshape-drawings , you have to create a drawing sheet from the bottom left corner, press the plus button then create drawing and you will find the drawing tool bar that contains the dimension tools, then import the part to the drawing sheet and have fun.
