Measurements

Hi,
If I generate a model by setting values between 0.0 and 1.0 for all the 20 parameters that can be measured, its measurements are displayed in the Modelling | Measures tab and sliders, either in centimeters or inches depending on the scale chosen. Can I export all these measured parameters into a document, without having to manually note down the values?

I"m pretty sure there's no functionality for that. That being said, since each of those is, at some point, stored as a variable, adding that functionality wouldn't be that hard, if you know some Python.

If you take a look in _ui.py in MHAPI, you can find a method getTaskView(). This gives you access to a python object implementing a tab.

Worst case you could access the measurements tab and read its internal variables, and work from there.

Can you please tell me how the MakeHuman software measures the "lowerarm length" and "upperleg height" parameters?
I want to know if the palm is also considered for lowerarm length or if it's measured till the wrist point.
For upperleg height, pls tell me which points are considered for its measurement.

Thanks in advance.

These measures are crude approximations made by looking at linear distances between two points. If you move the slider of interest (and release), you will see white lines on the model that show what is being measured. For the lower arm it is roughly elbow to wrist. For the upper arm it is shoulder to elbow.
