iLogic rule to measure loop length in a sketch.

A - answer With a simple iLogic expression (rule) you can automatically display loop length - length of the first sketch containing any geometry.

2D sketch:

  
Dim se As SketchEntity = ThisDoc.Document.ComponentDefinition.Sketches(1).SketchLines(1)  
MsgBox(ThisApplication.MeasureTools.GetLoopLength(se)*10 & " mm")  

3D sketch:

  
Dim se As SketchEntity3D = ThisDoc.Document.ComponentDefinition.Sketches3D(1).SketchLines3D(1)  
MsgBox(ThisApplication.MeasureTools.GetLoopLength(se)*10 & " mm")
