Measure Tool

The Onshape Measure tool is available in Part Studios, for sketches and parts, and in Assemblies for parts and assemblies. The Measure tool appears automatically in the bottom right corner of the interface after a selection is made in Part Studios or Assemblies, (shown below, in a screenshot from Onshape's desktop application).

The Measure tool in Onshape, as opposed to other CAD systems, is an automatic action rather than a specific tool. Because it is not a selectable tool, you do not need to search in the toolbar in order to use it.

When multiple selections are made, you may see this icon: Measure Button - click to expand and display the measurement information.
