Does the HoopsCommunicator measurement function have to keep Brep data to measure?

To measure the length or angle of an edge or face, is it necessary to keep the Brep data when generating the scs? Now the scs transferred with the kA3DReadTessOnly parameter can’t be used for the face or line measurement function in HoopsCommunicator.

Hello @Rui.Zhang03,

Yes, that is correct, BRep data is needed in order to make certain measurements (such as face and line). More information is available in our docs on the topic of Measurement. If the source file only has tessellation, other measurement operators will still work though, for example, point-to-point measurement.
