SUMMARY: measure the length of an IGES pipe-like part?
I received lots of helpful replies (I love those visuals). I will need to try them when I have some time.
1) To be able to recreate the part
2) To be able to measure the line (If there are time constraints)
Thank you all!
Note: sure would be nice to have some video tutorial ; )~

Try this, Create a drawing, place the view on the drawing the why you want it. Then plot to a tiff file. The higher the resolution the better.
Open it in photoshop, change the mode to rgb, scale it down to some manageable size, using the bicubic option. Then use the paint bucket to fill the areas of the part you want shaded. Then save it in whatever format your guy want's it.
