# Analysis

Measure dimensions, analyze curvature, check for continuity and watertightness, analyze the draft, detect undercuts, and create design iterations on the fly.

**Distance**

Measure the distance between two points.**Curve Length/Sublength**

Measure the length of an entire curve and a subcurve.**View a Curve Plot**

Display a curvature plot to see how the curvature varies along a curve.**Measure the Surface Curvature**

Measure the curvature of a surface.**Continuity Check**

Check for surface continuity at joined edges.**Area/Volume**

Calculate the area, volume, mass, and moments of inertia of one or more objects. If an object isn't a closed solid, open edges are displayed in red.**Tolerance Check**

Check if an object is a closed solid.**Draft Analysis**

Analyze the draft and detect undercuts when designing a product that is manufactured using injection molding.**Design Table**

Create design iterations on the fly using a design table, where you can quickly modify and set thresholds for the various parameters of a model, including sketch dimensions, without having to dig through construction history. You can create multiple snapshot tables, setting different values for variables in each table. Then you can export the file (model with design table) to HyperStudy to test and explore design alternatives.
