2. I am creating copper pipes mostly using a 3D sketch and need to obtain the total length of the 3D sketch. Is there an easy way to get the total length automatically?
The Tip: You can use the Frame feature in the assembly environment. You can create the 3D sketch using just lines and no need for drawing arcs. When you create a Parts List for the tube in the Draft sheet, adding the column for Cut Length will give the total length for the tubing as shown in this 1-minute video.

The Tip: Although there is no built-in method to modify Auxiliary views in Solid Edge, some ingenuity can go a long way in achieving the desired behavior and results. The following video illustrates this:
