CAD LT 2013 Block Authoring
GregD posted a topic in AutoCAD LTHi, It's a bit difficult to explain my problem I would like to know how (or if it's even possible) to have an object follow a block in rotation (authored) without the object rotating itself. Kind of like a piston in a car, the piston will only move up and down but the rod and crankshaft will be in rotation (good example I hope). Or a luffing crane hoisting up and down and the counter ballast will follow the line of rotation but not rotate itself... Help would me much appreciated. Thanks.
How can hatch follow path?
gpktm posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceGreetings everyone. I was trying to draw the enlacements of a wire rope by applying the hatch command but when I facing curves, the hatch needs to rotate somehow. Is it that possible? I manage to do it by using "measure" command and then with a use of a block, align it to path and then enter the segment length. (Attached image) But I was wondering if there is a way to do it with hatch command or any other method.
