Measure Parallel

This tool is used to measure distances between pairs of entities, such as points, segments, and faces. You apply this tool by clicking on the two entities you wish to measure and the program responds with a dialog that displays the number of the measurement or informs you that the distance you requested is not well defined. For example, no distance can be calculated between two faces that are not parallel, or between two segments that are not parallel, or between a segment and a face that are not parallel, etc. In these cases an error message is presented, rather than a measurement.
