Is there a way to measure overall dimensions in COMPRESS ?

Is there a way to measure overall dimensions in COMPRESS ?

Is there a way to measure overall dimensions in COMPRESS ?

Does anybody know if COMPRESS has any option to measure overall length, width and height of the vessel. I need these dimension for the shipping estimation.

I am sorry if this question has already been answered (just show me the direction). Thanks a lot for your contribution.

RE: Is there a way to measure overall dimensions in COMPRESS ?

The COMPRESS input screen (3D view of the vessel) provides the overall dimensions for height tan-tan, height of skirt, diameter, etc. But this is not reported in the calculations (except perhaps the GA sketch).

Thank you Mr. Barsh for the response.

The T/T dimension so it basically does not help me. If I have overall length (eg. from the end of baseplate to the face of flange on top head)  & similar for horizontal nozzles,it would help me design more accurate shipping calculations.

it's hard to add up that string of 3 dimensions
