Serial offsets in 2D mode

Recommended Posts

I have such a  simple issue I have wondered about for 15 years of using this program, but I cannot figure it out. How can I do a serial offset of a single object with different distances?
Simply stated: I want to draw wood panelling with a 3/4" chamfer, then a 2 1/2" stiles and rails, then a 3/4" ogee, then...whatever. I would like to select the rectangle that is the full door size and input those numbers all at once instead of offsetting, going back into the offset tool bar, re-entering the next number and so on... seems so simple! Can anyone help?

Sounds to me like you could make good use of the Marionette Scripting tools. Why don't you post this request in the Marionette forum as well. There are some very helpful folk willing to help.

I agree with @markdd that Marionette may be a good first step in doing this.

Could you provide an image of what you want your end result to be? I'd be happy to help get something started for you!
