TurboCAD Pro 14: Dimensioning a Polyline
Read 916 times
* December 09, 2013, 07:57:00 PM
I'm using TurboCAD pro to lay out a reverse spiral tubing pattern for radiant floor heat.  I have used a polyline snapped to a grid with the appropriate tubing spacing.  Since the length of each loop is important to the proper function of the system, I need a way to measure the length of the continuous polyline.  Is there a way to do this?  I was thinking that I could simply select the polyline as an entity and have it dimensioned from end to end, but I'm not finding a way to do this. 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Select the polyline and examine the metrics in the Selection pallet.
I added the individual dimensions just to illustrate the result in the metrics.
