The minimum distance between infinite axes might also be a useful measurement when looking at conformational changes, as it is not dependent upon the axis length (e.g. if helices are of slightly different lengths between two otherwise homologous structures).
"For distance measurements, axes are treated as finite line segments, while planes are treated as infinite.”
