Tube Length: Created from 2D Autocad file with Solid Edge Cross Curve command.
I have to create a Tube from our old 2D Autocad file. I have the 2 views then I was able to use the Cross Curve command.
Do anyone know a comfortable way to get the total length of this tube?
Solved! Go to Solution.
many thanks for your reply!
We are usinbg ST5 in production, and this mesure command isn't available in thsi version
I hope we will upgrade soon in 2017!!!
I can't get the total length of the tube in one step like using "Inquire Element" on the "Cross Curve".
Did I misunderstand something?
Here is a short video (compatible with ST5):
Hi @Imics ,
Might I ask you a question?!
My next logical question is how would be your approch if you get such Tube from a STEP file and you have neither the sketches from 2D file nor the Crosscurve?
Many thanks in advance for your contributionS to make the Solidedge world better
It depends on type of tube, but you need for its centerline. You have to "remodel" it.
Here are two solutions (ST5 compatible & ST9, what is much simpler than ST5's):
