Offestting lines multiple distances in one command?


Recommended Posts



I'm literaly just starting to use CAD so this might be a silly question, but how would I offset a line more than one distance in a command? Is there like a symbol you put between each distance like 2000;2250;2650 or something along those lines (no pun intended). Again sorry is this is a silly question.


thanks :D

I'd use Copy (copyselection) if the distances are all different, and either Offset > [M]ultiple or Array if the distances are evenly spaced.


Assuming the first:

Pick the line

Start the copy command.

Move the mouse in the direction you want to offset

Type the distance.

Move the mouse in the directiion you want to offset

Type the next distance

Repeat as needed


(You'll need polar and/or Object Snap Tracking turned on if the lines are not exactly horizontal/vertical.)
