How to measure the specific net length in kicad

No need. Select the net, click on it, and the information is shown on the bottom status bar.

thanks for your reply @pedro .but i want to measure hole net length( including top and bottom layer net length.)

At the moment you can only manually add lengths of each track in a net.

If you would want to get the distance of the whole net, this could be done in python.

But I suspect that you are interested in a distance between two pads. This would be a little trickier with nets that connect more than two pads.

You may be able to use KiCommand by selecting the desired tracks and using the following command string

tracks selected length sum print

I haven’t tested this, but when I get a chance, I’ll test it out and edit this post.

I’ve just released a new KiCommand version where this command string works to get the length of selected tracks:
