Cad Lines

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if it is possible to "explode" cad polylines into individual line segments?  All I want is to draw individual cad lines instead of multiple lines being automatically connected together.  If I want to use 1 line as a reference line and draw something referencing it, I then later want to go back and erase the reference line I drew.  I can't do this most of the time because the lines automatically connect to create a poly line.  I am trying to use the cad line tool to draw simple cross sections.


On another note, I think it is possible to draw a line with an angle that is in pitch instead of degrees.  I have used it before but I can't seam to find where that setting is.


Much appreciate your help for a newer user!

Are you using X7 or X8? You should really put it in your signature. It helps to know what product people are using.

If you're using X7, what you're looking for is Edit Object Parts (Shift+F8).

If you're using X8, its a little more complicated. I think I'm gonna make a video here shortly.

      Hey All, 

      I'm looking to create a cad line with custom arrows for my joist direction labels. I'm just wondering if this is even possible? 

      I've tried creating one with CAD lines and then blocking it, however when I stretch the newly created block, the arrows become skewed. 

      I then thought about creating a stretch plane for the block, but that doesn't seem possible either.

      Can Cad Lines be customized to add words or numbers inside of a cad line? 
      See attached.  Need to add custom notation on these lines.   Labeling added?

      I am having a hard time doing accurate tile elevations in CA. I'm a kitchen and bath designer and need to be able to show tile installers exactly how the tile is being laid out. I use patterns (brick etc) for renderings but these are not ok for technical drawings. It seems CA cuts the tiles (at top and bottom) when its not necessary and I can't figure out if or how origin points might help me. Basically I need to know how to get patterns to start and end at an exact height or be exactly centered on a sink, etc. Currently  I am having to use cad lines to draw the tile elevations which is time consuming and bogs my computer down. Can anyone help me with this?  Thanks!
