# Dimension curve length

Pioneer

Hey,

i need to define a length of a curve so i can get a ribbon cable made.

ive found the length in the properties of the object.

is there a dimension that will do the same for a curve?

id rather have a proper dimension instead of a screen capture.

depenfing on how You have defined this cable or that part You will find several options to fix the length of it.

If this is an ASM and a cable/wire harness or a pipe (xPresRoute) then You will have a path option for those splines to set a fix length.

If it is a part with a spline sketch You simply need to deimension it using a smart dimension.

This will define the spline length

Thanks for getting back to me, i tried the smart dimension and it only gave me the radius of the sections.

im using st4. Is the length option something introduced in later versions? (Drawn in a sketch).

sorry, that could be.

I believe to remember this additional function was comin with ST7 or so.
