Custom linetypes thick to thin

Recommended Posts

FRAPP84

Hello all,

I seem to be having a lot of trouble creating a linetype i just received on a set of drawings. its a thick line that thins out and back to thick kind of like long arrowheads back to back. Any idea how i could get that going on cad 2002?

i've fooled around with the .lin file with no success.

 

Thanks

 

Matt

That's not a linetype, it's an LWPolyline with variable widths. Execute PLine and view the Width options.

You were talking about layer level lineweights, he's talking about widths within LWPolylines.

I'm just reffering to it as a pline. I'm looking to create a continuous line that goes from thick to thin repeatedly (as shown in my poor paint jpg). I'd like to be able to use it as a linetype so it could follow the arch of a circle or even the spline.

Thanks again

Matt

You'll have to create a shape and save it as an SHX file to create your linetype.
