Click on the 3d sketch spline you want the length of and then click on
tools-Measure. this will give you arc length and chord length. The arc
length is the length of the line the chord is the length of a line that
goes from the start to the finish of the by the shortest route possible.
If you have multiple segments of lines arcs and splines control-select
all of them and then tools-measure and it will give you the total length
That seems to work for measuring along the 3d spline.. It also gives
the total surface area of the swept part, which really has no use to
I was hoping to select the whole swept part, and get "properites" or
"info" on the whole thing. Oh well.
If you are getting the surface area you are not selecting the right
stuff, you need to select the lines curves and splines only....
If you select the surface you will get area and perimeter.
If you select the lines and splines in the sketch you get the length of
1. In the feature manager locate the sketch with the lines (it will be
in the surface feature (hit the '+' sign and it will show up)) right
click and choose show
2. Select the lines and splines and hit measure
3. If you cannot see the sketches clearly right mouse click the feature
and hit hide (the sketch will still be visible) and follow step 2
