Speaker Design, Lenght of a curve (Spline)

I am doing a speaker design and the port length (tube) is very important because it gives you the frequency or specific music tone that the listener most like.

 

There should be another way to calculate the curve length than what I did which is measuring small sections. Does anyone know another way?

 

If I just would have the curve function I could calculate the length but I don't know the curve function because I don't have X, Y data as we do in excel.

 

By the way, how would you 3D print this tube (pipe), laid down on the side, or vertically stand up?

Hi @adrian.ambriz Do you just want the overall length of the spline that you drew? Just want to make sure I am following correctly here. 

 

Thanks,

 

Kevin

Hi Kevin, thanks for your response.

 

Yes, I just want the overall length of the spline. After I draw the line and do a pipe following this spline.

Do you have any ideas/suggestions?

Hi @adrian.ambriz Thanks for the additional information. 

 

You can find out the length by starting the measure command and then clicking on your spline. In the example below I sketched a spline and started the measure command then selected the spline. It shows me the length in the dialog window. When you click the spline even without using measure, Fusion will show you the length in the lower right corner as well.
