How do you measure wire length on a spring model

I am creating a complex helical spring and would like to measure what the wire length would need to be. Is there a way to do this?



Thanks

if you are creating your spring with a curve you can measure the length of the curve and add it as a analysis

You could try a surface copy of the coils, create a composite curve from the edge of the surface, then measure the curve length.
