How to measure the real size in UE4

E.g., get the real distance between two points.

There are some cheap working measure tools on the marketplace.

I made a quick blueprint similar to this a while ago.

Hey bros!

Just reviving this old topic as I created a new Measurement Tool which you can use in game!

If you wanna download it - head to my public Google Drive Folder!

And this little Tool Features:

Create single line and groups which will show you the total length
Select between single lines and groups
Change text placement
Toggle text look at player
Toggle LineTrace visibility to see hit response (need to change that to a text indicator to know if we hit as we can toggle the distance of the dots)

And more! Just don’t wanna make this list too long ;]

And funny thing - that was almost 2 years since I wrote my video-answer here and now I am reposting as recently I made this old idea really come true! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Wonder if anyone will ever read this post again XD Click on any link if you did even if you need nothing so I can check on how many of you have ever made it till the end of this message, think of it like an Easter Egg :v:

Wish you all the best with your projects! :space_invader: :space_invader: :space_invader:


This is a great idea! Does it work with V4.27? There is a warning about it being created with an older version of UE. I downloaded and started the projectup, is it just supposed to work, or is there an on button? Not seeing any thing coming from the gun.

If you just need to see the difference between two points in the editor, go into an ortho view and click+hold middle mouse button and drag.

Plus you have the grid as well.
