Pro/PIPING (WF IV) - How to go from bending table data to modified pipe line length

Hello


Having read the on-line help, I don't find the way to have the length of the pipe "to be cut" modified by the content of the bend table. It seems to me that there is no direct way, but only equations that will give me the modified length of each bend arc, depending on the angle of the bend and the loss of length I will document in the table for a 90° angle.


What do I do with this ? Add all straight lenghts and all modified bends lengths of the pipe line to get the overall length "to be cut" of the tube?


[EDIT] : I found that the bend table has to be declared in the line stock. That works nicely now.


Other problem : since the pipe line length is now affected by this modification, how do I keep the original *geometrical* length beside the *modified* one (to be cut) ?


I played with all "asm.mbr.pipe./.../len/.../" parameters with no success : all are modified the same way.


Any help much appreciated. Kind regards.


Jean-Michel.
