Labelling/indicating component distances in a NSC3D layout

Hello,

I was wondering if there was a way within OpticStudio to label component distances in the NSC3D layout. The layout window has a measure tool, but it requires me to draw the line which would lead to the measurement being inaccurate. Is there a way to extract the measurement data from the non-sequential component editor?

Thank you,

Hi @Musab.Blain,

Unfortunately, there isn’t a direct tool to calculate those distances for you. However, it is easy enough to calculate these distances yourself with some vectors and the global origin. This would also be fairly straightforward to implement as a ZPL macro, where you just need to enter two points to calculate their distance in 3D space. Here’s an example of an approach that you could use:

I hope this helps!

Best,
Ethan
