Cad poly line and line break challenge

Recommended Posts

Draw streight line and break it in to 4 equal segments. Then resize it using concentric mode.

Here the problem is, I need to get the resized line segments to increase/decrease proportionally. Am i missing this? Or the software.

If I use the transform replicate tool I can scale such a line - but you are saying "concentric mode".  Does the transform replicate tool work for you?

 

added- ok, I just used the concentric mode and selected (lasso) all the points and was then able to scale keeping proportions.

In the transform replicate tool you can do do it but for multiple copying you can't maintain equidistant polygons with broken segment proportioned. The other option "multiple copy tool "you can get a number of concentrically spaced polygons but the breaks will not proportion.

So I got a some sort of answer to polygons of equal sides, just block it and use multiple copy tool holding C. And select all at one marque then click unblock. Again for rectangles you can trick it by blocking it enclosed by square. You get some interesting results if keep playing with it.

      This is something that's started after upgrading to X10.  Working with roof lines, line breaks are appearing on their own making it very difficult to join plane using #2 button.  And before, line breaks would automatically disappear when you straightened a line, now they don't.  I can't find a setting that determines this behavior.

      This BREAK LINE TOOL.calibz  has white fill so you can place it over solid CAD sections without needing to manually draw breaks. Must modify drawing order in some cases. Defaults to CAD drawing group

      Hi all
      First of all thanks for all the help you guys are offering here. It helps very much.
       
      I am wanting to learn terrains and I am having some issues when I try to use terrain breaks. How can I apply it without having the weird cut that splits the terrain.
      Any advise would be much appreciated.
       
      Thanks in advance.
