    True at 100 meters away it would make the difference of the window opening and the frame just 1mm, but it might be a bit hard to pick details from a photo at that distance.

    @f700es


    I don't think the OP has that sort of budget

    The notion of dealing with parallel, though not coplanar, geometry got me thinking . . . . So, I'm posting a setup for testing Image to Cad Data techniques.

    The file doesn't actually contain an image - just a basic model and some FLATSHOT geometry - but I think we can treat that as traced geometry from a photograph of some comparable test structure.

    I going to make a screencast using the app (Projective2D) I mentioned in the similar thread from a week ago. I will post that link when it becomes available.

    Here is the screencast link:

    I'll have to investigate the possibility of analyzing geometry on non-parallel planes.

    Impressive work. You're definitely on to something here.

    Thanks guys. Non parallel measurements are proving to be quite a bit more tricky, but I may be onto something that could be included with my add-in. Still needs some refinement - I'll see how it works out.

    Yeah, I learned a lot from watching that demonstration that I'm sure I'll use in the future.
