How to use Measure Tool with shortcuts

Blender tutorial shows how to use Measure Tool to measure edge, angle and distance between objects. In this tutorial video, we will go through how to measure distance between objects first. Then we can measure the object size with edge length and the angle between edges. If we want to change to measurement units, we can change from meters to centimeters, millimeters, feet or inch. Steps are easy to follow for Blender beginners. I hope this helps. More Blender Tutorial are available here.
