i have a drawing with piping goint from point a to point b. now i have bends & pipe pieces all are connected to each other. what i would like is to know the lenght of the whole traject. i can get a list of all centerlines of the parts and manually do the calaculation. getting distance from the inquiry tool bar also does not give me what i want since it asks me of two points, not of multi points untill i end the command ang give me the total result... not to mention bends (arcs) because that is yet another command from the inquiry... so! how can i get this result. 

 

thx john

Put the centerlines on one layer, turn off all other layers and pedit the centerlines and join to get one centerline. List to get total length.

You can try ADDLINES.vlx which add up length of all selected lines/polylines/arcs/circles.

Here's a lisp that will add up all of your lines, splines, arcs etc.  Type TLEN  at the command line, select your objects, done.
