Arc length in IV6.0

Is there anyway I can find the arc length in IV6.0.

Previously in MDT4.0 I would make it into a polyline and just list that arc to give my a constant length. Thanks.

Search the newsgroup on arc length,  several suggestions
including example files have been posted.

Create a new 3DSketch / Project the Arc (and anything else you want
included like lines and more connected arc and splines etc. / RMB and
pick loop length then select the 3DSketch.

  • Tools/measure distance

  • Select the arc (by default you will get the
    radius)

  • RMB

  • Select other

  • Use the arrows to cycle between radius and
    arc length ( keep also an eye on the banner of the dialog changing from radius
    to length)

  • Hit the green button in between the two
    arrows
