Path Length Dimension

You can set a path length dimension to a chain of sketch entities. You can set the dimension to be a driving dimension, so that when you drag the entities, the path length resizes consistently.

The path length dimension can help constrain belt and chain assemblies or pulley systems.

path_dimension_sample_1 path_dimension_sample_2

You can reference this dimension in custom properties, configurations, equations, or tables, including design tables and BOMs.

Click Tools > Dimensions > Path Length or right-click the sketch and click Dimensions > Path Length Tool_Path_Length_Dimension.
