Solid Edge Video Quick Tip #077

This Solid Edge video tip is about automatically getting the total length of a copper tube and displaying it in the Bill Of Materials Table.

When creating copper pipes using a 3D sketch, to obtain the total length of the 3D sketch, there is an easy way to get the total length automatically.

You can use the Frame feature in the assembly environment.  You can create the 3D sketch using just lines and no need for drawing arcs. When you create a Parts List for the tube in the Draft sheet, adding the column for Cut Length will give the total length for the tubing as shown in this 1-minute video.
