 Is there a way to Generate Path Lengths in Process Simulate for Mig Welding Process.

Thanks in advance,

Hi, 

 

what do you mean?

Do you want to measure the length of a continuous path?

 

Out of the box, there is a function in PS called "Curve Length".

I used the API to create a function to measure the length of a seam or continuous operation.

You can simply do this on your own.

Thanks Patrick,
I'm not real familiar with API. We do not have the ARC option. Also don't have the Continuous Feature Operation option.
The paths were created off of CAD Files of the Beads laying on the Product with no MFG's.
I guess I could create Curves on the Weld Locations and get the measurements of the Weld portion of the Paths minus the Via Locations.

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

 

You´re welcome.

This is exactly what my function is doing, but all the steps in one click. Smiley Wink
