force weldment to take max length value or arc length value

I work with steel tube bent to a 145deg radius anywhere from 10" long to 90" long. I use weldments to make the multibody part that contains the "bows". When my chop saw guy measures these bows for cutting he measures on the outside of the bow radius, which makes perfect sense to me. My problem is that the length property takes the measurement from the center of the profile so my cutlists all have short measurements for bowed bodies. Is there a way without manually inputting the dimensions to force the cutlist to take the measurement of the outer arc length? I have a lot of these so a solution could REALLY help me out. Thanks guys!
