The ThicknessAnalysis command uses falsecolor display to evaluate the thickness of a solid.
For every vertex in the analysis mesh the distance from a vertex to the "other side" of the mesh is calculated. A color is assigned to the vertex based on that distance. If the distance is less than or equal to the minimum distance the color is red. If the distance is greater than the maximum distance, the color is white. If the distance is between the minimum and maximum distances, a color between red and blue is assigned. Distance close to the minimum distance are more red than blue and distances close to the maximum distance are more blue than red. A report is printed in the command prompt window that lists the number of vertices tested and the percentage of vertices with distances less than or equal to the minimum distance, between the minimum and maximum distances, and beyond the maximum distance.
Commandline options
If the analysis needs to take a long time, a prompt to continue appears.
Continues the analysis for an additional six minutes.
Stops the analysis.
Continues the analysis no matter how long it takes.
Once you commit to allowing the analysis to continue, you cannot stop the command with Esc.
