Creating Path Length Dimensions

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.

To create a path length dimension:

  1. Right-click the sketch and click Dimensions > Path Length Tool_Path_Length_Dimension.
  2. In the graphics area, select the sketch entities that are end-to-end coincident, and form a single chain.
  3. Click ok.png.


    A radial style dimension appears and is attached to the path.

  4. To change the path length dimension, double-click the dimension and specify a new value in the Modify dialog box.
    You can reference this dimension in custom properties, configurations, equations, or tables, including design tables and BOMs.
