Water Cooler Tips: Custom Measurements with the Line Tool

We’re back with another Water Cooler Tip for you! Today we’re talking about how to use the line tool in CompanyCam to add custom measurements to your photos. 

Now, we’re sure you all know about the awesome augmented reality virtual measuring tools in CompanyCam, but did you know that you can add in custom measurements without using AR? We know sometimes quick estimates just don’t cut it, which is when it’s time to bring out the tape. Once you’ve got your measurement, simply take a step back, take a photo of the space, and select the line tool in your tool bar on the right side of your screen. Once you’ve extended your line the full distance of the area you measured, you can add in a custom measurement. 



Now, the measurement you’ve added to the line is attached to that photo, so you never lose another measurement. Quickly access all your measurements for projects using tags and you’ll never have to answer another what was the measurement on the ridge?” ever again. 

As always, we’d love to hear the unique ways you use CompanyCam! Comment your tips and tricks below, shoot us an email, or send a carrier pigeon. We can’t wait to see all the different ways you put CompanyCam to work for you.
