# Measures

Measures are functions that compute a result from data captured from the geometry area. Measures are application-related objects and they will not be displayed in the dictionary if you do not have the right product installed (Part Design or Generative Shape Design for instance).

Sample: KwrMeasuresWiz.CATPart

 distance (Body, Body): Length Returns the distance between two bodies of a part. minimumCurvatureRadius (Curve): Length Enables the user to measure the minimum radius of curvature for any type of curve. nbDomains (Body): Integer  For all types of items, enables the user to compute the number of domains. length (Curve): Length Returns the total length of a curve. length (Curve, Point, Boolean): Length Returns the length of a curve segment located between Point1 and one end of the curve. Modifying the boolean value allows you to retrieve the length from the specified point to the other end. length (Curve, Point, Point): Length Returns the length of a curve segment delimited by two points. area (Surface): Area Returns the area of a surface generated by the Generative Shape Design product (an extruded surface for example). area (Curve): Area Returns the area delimited by a curve. perimeter (Surface,...):Length Returns the perimeter of a surface. It can take several surface features in input. The perimeter function sums up the perimeter of each surface. The returned value is a length. Point >coord (rank: Integer): Length Returns the coordinates of a point. Returns X if 1 is specified, Y if 2 is specified, Z if 3 is specified. volume (closed_surface: Surface, ...): Volume Returns the volume of a closed surface. volume (Volume geometry,...): Volume Returns the volume of a volume. angle (center: Point, pt1: Point, pt2: Point): Angle Returns the angle between the lines "C-Point1" and "C-Point2". angle (Direction, Direction): Angle Returns the angle between two directions. angle (Line, Line): Angle Returns the angle between two lines. angle (Plane, Plane): Angle Returns the angle between two planes. angleoriented (Direction, Direction, Direction): Angle Returns the angle between two directions and oriented by a third direction. angleoriented (Line, Line, Direction): Angle Returns an angle between two lines and oriented by the direction. angleoriented (Plane, Plane, Direction): Angle Returns an angle between two planes and oriented by the direction. curvature (crv: Curve, pt: Point): Real Returns the curvature of a curve in a given point.
