Curve Length dim updates to altered curve - via curve id


#1

Hi
No doubt I have answered my own question but if someone could confirm.

Draw a curve, use Curve Length dim on it.
select curve F10 bend it, value changes although arrow tip not touching anymore.

I assume there is a link to the curve other than the arrow tip, curve id I would presume.

arrow tip being just ‘cosmetic’

Yes, it’s linked to the curve vi it’s ID… In theory the dimension should follow when the curve is edited, but CurveLength is not really a real “dimension” object, rather just an annotation that has a special link… Maybe this will be improved in V6…

Wish for V6
the arrow tip moves if the curve moves to stay in touch with it :slight_smile:
