Measure Pipe Run

Why is their not a tool when you select a pipe run to get the information about it. I understand many have branches and such but maybe multiple answer tool (ie Maximum Run length from beginning to the end of the furthest run, then total length of pipe and fittings [with a sub of total length of pipe without connectors]. I know you can do a schedule to do this, but I don't even do pipe schedules (should but that is a work problem not software). I just need to know the max length and total length for estimates for ordering pipe and working with the contractors.

 

Come on Autodesk, I know you guys can do this... :smileywink:
