Can we douplicate the Insulation box object

Recommended Posts

I was wondering.

Making blocks to simulate (2d detailing) metal framed wall studs, I use a rectangle & 2 interior lines with a short dash line style.

This works well but is there a way to add the punched flat oval or rectangle AND have it stretch line insulation does?

The insulation maintains it's symmetry. Currently, I use several blocks at different lengths & I can stretch them a little without distorting the oval too much.

Instead of using several blocks and stretching them, build one extra tall stud out of 2 separate but overlapping closed polylines....

...then simply trim to length using another polyline instead of stretching.  Just group select the main 2, click polyline subtraction, then click the trimming piece...

Thanks for the lesson on pline subtraction.

I suppose I could block the remaining objects so I can make fine adjustments to the length.

 

Too bad we can not create the Insulation block though.
