How to measure the real lenght of a curve on solidworks?
i wonder if it is possible to measure the real length of a curve, on a sketch fir exmp. imagine a rope stands on the floor randomly placed. is it possible to measure the lenght of that rope on solidworks?
Thank You David Thomas! I thought it would be better to add a tutorial. And i can do it now. Thanks again!

Since there really isn't any random in SolidWorks, there must have been a curve that determines the path of the rope. You can measure that curve by using the measure tool. First, make sure the curve is visible. Then, click Tools --> Measure. Now click on the curve and you will get the Arc Length of it. This also works for edges if the rope were actually square tubing or something like that.
