3d Dashed Line / Arrow Family ?

I'm building a couple of 3d massign models and a thought occured to me.

 

Is it possible to create a 3d dashed line family (ideally with a 3d arrow head graphic) that could be used via a drawn line in the model to act as a path ?

 

If possible, then parameters could be used to set height, depth, dash gap etc.

 

It would allow for quick 3d annotation on views - including shadows to help them 'pop'

 

Not quite sure where to start. I can use sweeps etc. but not sure if a family can use a path that is essentially outside of the family itself.

 

Could it even use an MEP family - based around something like a duct route, but substituting a dashed 3d form and a termination of an arrow ?

 

Not a critical item - just a thought on what might be possible.

 

Thanks,

Martin
