The next three pages are demo animations for using a DRO Quadracheck computer on a Suburban Micro-View optical comparator
This animation demonstrates how the DRO/computer is used to measure any distance between two points. The distance does not need to be along a horizontal or vertical feature. The computer can calculates distances at an angle too.

The points shown can be any feature on the screen as long as the same one is used to target each feature on the part.
