On this weekend I built MC measurement tool dedicated to 405th.com

This is .exe file with MC interactive model inside. No trojans or viruses because it is built by eDrawings 2008 application from famous Dassault Systems' SolidWorks suite.
It doesn't require any annoying installation. Just click on it and you'll see MC immediately.

You can rotate, zoom, measure in mm and inches, insert cross section view, save views as JPG and print.
Model is not ingame textured.

To download the program press here.
This is 4.4 Mb .zip file, password: masterchief


eDrawings is free of charge at all. If you want to obtain your own copy, visit one of the following links:

1. eDrawings on Solidworks site

2. eDrawings site

3. eDrawings on Geometric site

"eDrawings® provides an innovative way to share your designs.
You can publish your models to eDrawings files that can packed
into a self-executable (.exe). The self-executable file contains
the viewer as well as the design data. This ensures that the recipients
of such a files do not need to purchase or install any viewer
to see the model."



Best regards

EDIT: for normal work, program may require last MSXML 6 Parser Patch from Windows Update site.

Thanks!

I did password in bold. Unfortunately you cannot scale the size of embedded model. Sorry.

very handy, now people can figure out their percentage height in comparison and then measure each piece and adjust it to themselves. did that make sense? probably not. I'm quite tired.

If this truley works 100% flawlessly, then bevbor, you're a genius!
*drops eyes and shuffle foot*

Btw, with this prog it is clearly visible that considering full MC scale helmet height is 26 cm is pure mistake.
It is... 32.5 cm!!!

Thanks, but do not need to appreciate too much (my face is red already).
I'm just took existing data and combined it with existing tool :)
No a big deal really.

does this work with other models?
Yes, it does work with any models. Only you need is:
1. Find a way to convert a model to format that eDrawings accepts.
2. Scale a model properly for right further measurement.
3. Set some color to faces.
4. Export it to .exe in eDrawings and voila!
