I am just learning to use 3DS MAX 9 here. I have never tried previous versions either. I have been using Google Sketchup until now.
I need to know if there's a tool that can functions like the "Tape Measure" in Google Sketchup. For example, I want to use the "Cut" tool and the first starting point should be 5 cm from a vertex. And the end point should be 10 cm from another vertex.
Is it possible to set some sort of marker on these positions prior to cutting the geometry?
Please forgive me if I'm not clear enough. Jumping from Sketchup to 3DS Max is a huge leap. It's powerful but very overwhelming for me right now. Any help is appreciated :)
