In the case described, Advance Steel calculates the developed lenght by using a median unfold line of the respective profile. You can change the way Advance Steel calculates the unfold line to inner contour, outer contour, pure median line, table and DIN from the default : "Expansion method for unfolding", located in the "General" category.
