measuring curved paths
on Aug 13, 2010 at 5:34:56 am

This is a huge thing for me as I have just started making all of my clothing patterns in illustrator.

I need to know how to measure the length of a curved line. I don't want to know the distance between the two points, I need to know the length of the line...

Google:
illustrator path length

There are a bunch of plugins that will do this for you.

Try 'em out and let us know how they work for you.

I am trying to utilize PathLength for illustrator CS4 and I am having trouble seeing how to use it. Any hints?

1. Window > Document Info
2. Open the palette menu
3. Check "Selection" and "Objects"
4. Select your path
5. Read the length of the path
