XYZ Coordinates for tubes

I don't have the Pro/Piping module so I'm asking this here. I have a tube that has five total points, I need to get an XYZ readout of these points so I can take that info to my tube bending machine.



Can someone please help me get this information? I'm using Wildfire.



thanks in advance,

Steve,

Have you modeled the tube by using datum points? Then create a pipe to check your dim's.

I already have the tube modeled, I just need a fast way to get the XYZ data.



So far I have done an analysis - measure from coordinate system to point 1 (which should be 0,0,0) and then measured from coordinate system to point 2 (3.50,0,0) and so on. What I'm after is a better way to measure points in a tube.
