Is it possible to measure objects in Lumion?
An example would be when you place a tree to get a measurement of the actual height of said tree.

Hi goodonline

There is no specific measurement tool in Lumion.  Has been suggested  by some members.

You can do it simply by using one object and Move and moving it to any surface on another object to find out the height (see pic 1).

Note that Height is from the Lumion Terrain.

For Trees however, there is no pickable surface as with other objects, so you would need to change the Height of the measuring object (see pic 2).

One member made a measuring tool for height and distance from point.  That's in the Assets Board which as a Guest you currently don't have access to.  But you can make your own, a model with size/height gradations and import it.

I will toy around with that technique.
I would live to see a measurement tool in future releases.

Thanks again,
