Recommended Posts

another ?

- if i am looking to find equally divided sections (maybe on a line) in cad i just draw a line then do teh divide command, enter the amount of sections then bam, the line divides into the segments. ---useful in finding spacing of center lines w/o having to crunch out the numbers.

how might i do something simliar in VW ?

Modify Menu:Drafting Aids:Line Into Segments.

Options for number of segments, to place loci, to break the line, and to make copies (leave original line intact).

If what you really want is equally spaced centerlines filling an allotted space, there's a neater way to do that:

- draw a centerline

- while it's still selected, group it

- go into the group by double-clicking on it

- offset or array the centerline to get the number of centerlines you want (the offset distance doesn't matter, just so they're all offset the same)

- exit the group by clicking outside it

- drag-stretch the group to fit into the allotted space.

And maybe drag-stretch it in the other axis to set the length of all the centerlines.

Line Into Segments is good if what you really want is a line divided into segments.

And a couple of further alternatives:

Toolsets:Basic: Grid Rectangular - Layer Plane

or perhaps preferably

Constraints:Smart Cursor Settings:Distance (fraction of percentage) and Multiple Divisions.
