Complex 3D sketch arc dimensioning

Hi all,


I have a (hopefully) easy to answer question which revolves around dimensioning arcs in 3D sketch. I have a feeling that I may be in over my head on this, but I need to create a curved sweep which can then be flat patterned in the sheet metal function. Even worse, I need to be able to tweak the data points eventually without starting over, something which SW has sternly forbid with this design.


The basic question is: is there any way to dimension this 3DSketch/sweep so that editing and forming will be easy? (easy is relative, of course. A better question is: is it possible?)


Thank you so much for whoever is up for the challenge! You'll make a sad frustrated engineer much happier.
