finding distance between offset lines

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Im completly new to CAD so this is probably going to sound stupid but how would I find the distance between two offset lines. Basicaly what I have got is straight line with an original offset line at the base and I have copied this line at different distances along the line, but I need a way to double check the distances from the original line. Again sorry if it is really simple.

 

thanks alot,

 

Steve

You have several options including:

Distance command (DIST) and pick any two points

MeasureGeometry command (MEASUREGEOM) from the Ribbon or the Command line, and pick any two points

Create a dimension between any two points.

Using Osnaps, the first pick point will be at the End, Middle or Near the line, and then for the second pickpoint, you must use Perpendicular to the second line.

(command "._dist" "near" pause "perp")
