linear distance

Post by Mike Parrella » Tue Apr 26, 2005 4:00 pm

:?: I created a 2d polyline and then under the modify menu changed the 2d polyline to a a curved polyline. Is there a way to find out the length of this curved polyline and use the label command to label the length?

The only way that I know of to get the length of a polyline is to run the AREA command and pick using the Object option. I do not know if a smoothed polyline will give correct answers though – as this was only designed for straight and arc segments, not spline type curves.
