Re: Component mirror?

Yes I have seen the existing measure tool but it only seems to go from point to point. Meaning if I measure in between two parallel planes/surfaces I get from point to point, where ever I pick on the surfaces, or a perpendicular measurement between the two, that's what I'm looking for.
