ruler measure dimensions

How do you measure the distance between two points?

I imported a .stl file  for a circuit board case from thingiverse.  It's ONE object.

I need to verify that the case fits the circuit board I got.

I'd like to measure the distance between two holes in the object.

How do I do that?

Best I've been able to do so far is to create an upside-down pyramid hole

and drag the center to one hole, read the ruler, drag to the other hole read the ruler

subtract to get the hole separation distance.

Seems like a lot of work to do something it seems that everyone would want to do.

Would be nice to click-hold drag and read the distance off the numbers that track

the cursor position.
