Measure distance of inside nodes by selection of a meshed 3D volume

Hi

 

I'm running acoustical simulations (sol 103 direct frequency response) on an airvolume inside a muffler. And I need to exctract the acoustic pressure at some points in the air volume. But I need the exact distance between those points for further calculation.
For now I did it by selecting nodes of the mesh and measure their distance but that only works at the outside surface of my air volume. 

 

Does anyone now how to select and measure the distance between nodes inside a meshed volume?

 

Thanks in advance for your help

Way # 1:

 

On the Ribbon bar:

1 - Show and Hide Nodes Independently

2 - Display Node Markers as Dot or as Asterisk

3 - View tab --> See-Thru All

 

Displays the entire mesh in see-thru mode, so now you see all interior and exterior nodes

3 - View tab --> Edit Section passes a visibility plane (X, Y, or Z) through the mesh.

       o    Deselect the Cap Settings - Show Cap if necessary to enhance node visibility
