you can create an iso-surface of grid (isox, y or z)based on the surface of your cylinder. The intersection will create the line you want. I just don't know how it will draw xy-plot due to the loop.

OK!! thanks, that is working great!!!

xy plot is with option "curve lenght" no problem!

Now, when I want a line, that has 1 mm distance to that circumferential line around that cylinder, how to do that?????

Any additional idea??

Ralf
