Description

The 2PointCenterLine tool adds a centerline between two Vertices (Points).

CL2PointsSample.png

Centerline between 2 Points


Usage

  1. Select 2 Vertexes in a View.
  2. Press the TechDraw 2PointCenterLine.svg Add Centerline between 2 Points button
  3. A dialog will open where you can specify attributes of the new centerline.
  4. A centerline will be added between the 2 selected Vertices.

To delete a Centerline, select it and use the toolbar button TechDraw CosmeticEraser.svg Remove Cosmetic Object.

Editing Centerlines

Any of the centerline command buttons ( TechDraw FaceCenterLine.svg Add Centerline to Face(s), TechDraw 2LineCenterLine.svg Add Centerline between 2 Lines, TechDraw 2PointCenterLine.svg Add Centerline between 2 Points) can be used to edit any centerline.

  1. Select a centerline.
  2. Press any centerline command button.
  3. A dialog will open where you can change attributes of the centerline.
  4. Press OK to see your changes.

Properties

Centerlines have no properties of their own, as they are no document objects. They have attributes that can be changed in the centerline edit dialog.

  1. Mode (radio buttons):
    • Vertical: Forces a centerline vertical
    • Horizontal: Forces a centerline horizontal
    • Aligned: Follows the general direction of the Edge for 2 Edge centerline
  2. Shift Horiz: Moves the centerline left or right of its normal position
  3. Shift Vert: Moves the centerline up or down from its normal position
  4. Rotate: Rotates the centerline around its center (degrees. + counterclockwise, - clockwise)
  5. Extend: Makes the centerline longer by this amount
  6. Color: Color of centerline
  7. Weight: Thickness of the centerline
  8. Style: Continuous-line.svg Continuous, Dash-line.svg Dash, Dot-line.svg Dot, DashDot-line.svg DashDot, DashDotDot-line.svg DashDotDot
