PRO-Piping: Measuring Overall Pipe Length

PRO-Piping: Measuring Overall Pipe Length

Hello there PlanetPTC people, I am working in Pro-Piping and I am trying to figure out the most efficient way to measure the overall length of a pipe. I know I can measure each curve piece by piece and add them up, but it would be much nicer if I could just measure each pipe as a whole. Any tips or info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!

Re: PRO-Piping: Measuring Overall Pipe Length

while in piping.... click info/ set type to length and pro/e will display the overall length of the routing.

i have large assemblies with dozens of routings and when i need the lengths i use a repeat region table and then export it to excel to create drawings.

Erin,

I don't have Pro/Piping, so I don't know what picks and techniques are available within the extension, but, if you are measuring the combined lengths of a series of end-to-end Curves, maybe this will work for you: Select Analysis/Measure/Length and pick one of the Curves. Then hold down the Shift key and pick the rest of the Curves in the chain. This should give you the combined length.

Re: PRO-Piping: Measuring Overall Pipe Length

set the application to piping. select the tool icon (at top of tree). pull down to columns. In type window pull down and select pipe info. higlight pipe Length and use the >> to add to your tree columns. You may need to make the window portion of your tree wider to see the added column. This should display the pipe length.
