line lengths

I have attached a part that I'm doing for one of our customers.

I am needing to find out what the total length of the cut would be on the end.

We'll be cutting this on our tube laser, and I need the length.

I have used the "measure", but it only gives me one line at a time.

Is there a way to like hold down the ctrl button and pick my lines and radii?

Thank you very much for your help.

I think what you want is

3D sketch

Include geometry and click the boundary edges.

Measure > Loop

Thank you.

I'm not too sure what you are meaning, but I'll play around

and see if I can figure it out.
