length driven from analysis in alternate position???

i have a flexible hose-pipe that is attached to a skeleton-frame that will rotate up to 90 degrees. in the flat position it a has a free length of roughly 600mm. when the arm is rotated it has a length of roughly 670mm (free length).

i want to be able to run an analysis with the angle as the variable to drive the hose length change so that in the flat position it maintains the longest length needed from the rotated length (I have changed the hose section flex shape to a fixed length for the curve ).

what is the best way to achieve this while maintaining tangency?

I should also mention that the point to point hose length I'm talking about is from the fitting to the first clamp (hidden in these pictures).

so if there is a way for pro-e to calculate what the longest length of the hose will be when rotated while in the flat position i would love to know.

thank you
