extract length of solid
« on: November 16, 2006, 05:13:32 PM »
I have a "sweep" that is a circle extruded along a path.  What I would like to do is extract the length out of the solid.  I used getentity to see that it was a sweep, but couldn't find any property that matched the known length for that solid.

Ideas???

Maybe you can try measuring the path before you extrude or getboundingbox? Once itís a solid there is not much data you can pull from it
