Axis length features

#1

Hello,

I read the help but I did not understand very well the concept of both “Major Axis length” and “Minor Axis length”. Could you explain it a little bit? My major question is whether they check lengths for only X and Y axis or for any orientation.

Thanks.

Joaquin.

Hi Joaquin,

Major and Minor axis refer to the best fit “oval” for the identified object. It is not fixed for X and Y, and your objects can be in any orientation.
