Caption: VERICUT’s X-Caliper measuring tool identifies many features such as model thickness, length, and width dimensions. In 8.1 X-Caliper is increasingly useful for reports because measurements are displayed on the simulated part, and can be rotated with the part, zoomed, or dragged to a different location.
