Hi,

 

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?

Hi,

Oops, this important info. In this case firstly you have to use "Derived curves" with single segment option and after this use "Inquiry elements" in measure group.

Hi,

 

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?

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 Smiley Happy

Hi,

 

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):
