Measure Distance between Exploded components/models

Measure Distance between Exploded components/models

We would like to measure the distance between exploded components/models using DISTANCE. ANGLE works fine, DISTANCE gives the distance from the unexploded state, even though the model is exploded.

Update: this Product Ideas has been marked as a "Duplicate". Anyone interested in supporting this idea should add their vote here: Make Measurements reflect explode state values

This is a duplicate of this idea: Make Measurements reflect explode state values

Please vote up both, or can admins combine these ideas and votes to one idea?

Personally I cannot believe this is not a bug.

If the user is measuring with the model in exploded state, then of course the user expects the measurement to be the distance in that exploded state and not in some other state which is not visible on the screen.

No functionality exists to merge ideas, but we can mark one as a duplicate and point to the first Product Idea if it matches the exact use case provided. Joseph Wagh‌ - can you review the link provided by Jari Elomaa‌ to see if this meets your requirements?

Yeah, it seems OK. My description talks about how one functionality of measurement works, but the other doesn't.
