Import size shown by XYZ length

Recommended Posts

When I import an obj mesh into 3dCoat, I get the Tool Options panel opened up with various options, except what is most critical to me: the XYZ dimensions in real measurements (preferably in mm). Voxel resolution is irrelevant.

I don't want to hit the Apply button before I can verify the size it's being imported. 

I have looked everywhere for some panel that shows the size and saw many tutorials. Am I missing something, or is there nothing there?

Thank you Carlosan

I didn't know this was there.

However the panel you show, though it allows to define the length type, still does not show any dimensions. Here is the statistics panel, before the Apply is invoked (see image).

Are you using the latest version 4.7.19 ?

That window popup when you click Show Statics.

I just downloaded and installed the latest version for MacOS, and it's 4.7.11 (GL 64).

Even so, the result is still the same: no lengths in mm.

I could not find a 4.7.19 version––at least not anywhere obvious enough.

Yes, but this object is already applied.

If you remember, I said, I don't want to hit the Apply button before I can verify the size it's being imported.

What I was hoping for is a way to check size prior to committing the voxels, and avoid spot-checking afterwards, which is imprecise and counterproductive.
