This feature lets you view and export a property list of the objects that are selected in the viewport.

With this list you will easily be able to get accurate measurements of the quantities of different objects in your model.

Getting started:

The QTO menu can be found as the second menu in Inspect panel (shift + 4)

In order for the quantity information of an object to show up it has to be selected.

  1. Display geometry from models in 3D

  2. Resize the Information panel by dragging on the left side of the panel to see what is happening in the inspect panel

  3. Select an object

You will now be able to see the quantitative information connected to this object.
