    Have you tried creating the linetype yourself? One option is the MakeShape and MakeLinetpe commands found in Express Tools. Really shouldn't take more than 10 minutes and that's if you include a 5 minute coffee break.

    Another option would be to join up at AUGI then do a search on the word "sheetpile". There are two threads each of which contains a unique solution to your problem. Another task that can be completed in 10 minutes or less.

    Like Remark search for "Insulation" linetypes. I have a few created via lisp, I can not post code it is copyrighted but it draws straight pline with joining arcs. We would call that line type corrugated iron which is on the roof of my house. It takes into account the height but it could be have a length factor added as well.
    Code:
    ; 90 mm 25 arc's with straights
    ; arcs only based on 90 mm high INSULATION
    ; lines only based on 90 mm high ACOUSTIC
    ; straight lines SMOKE
