  • Equally Spaced points/hits

    I’m trying to create a line which will have many hits, from two separately constructed end points of other features which are already in my program.

    Is there a way to create a line with many equally spaced hits based off of two known end points?

    Or is the guess mode line type the only feature with this ability?

    Hopefully my thread comes across with a communicable thought.

    Thanks,

    I think your out of luck on this one. No way that I've seen to take equal hits on a constructed feature.

      Do you need to dimension these points?
      If not then what about an auto-line?
      Lately, it occurs to me
      What a long, strange trip it's been.

        Have you tried using a linier open scan and type in the starting and ending points?

          pattern - Paste with pattern

          divide line length by # points wanted
          this will give you the distance between points
          Edit>Pattern
          make offset in axis needed.
          number of points wanted.
          copy 1st point.

            Is there a large contour to the line?

              It can be done but it is tricky and you need to be mindfull of what you do with that feature. I would recommend not using it for alignments or for constructing other features after you create it. I'd use it for dimensioning only. Also it will need to be a set number of hits. I don't think you can go dynamic on the number of hits. I might be wrong on that.

                Thanks for the pattern info David, I never used that feature before. I can see how I can get that to workout well for me in this case, and save some programming time to.

                In theory Im measuring a straight line (per the CAD), however in actual practice the parts are not straight (at best), and worse yet not the same part to part.

                I guess I would liken the actual features on the parts to be more like contours then lines though.

                In short it makes for some interesting challenges.
