Another dumb question


Recommended Posts

Trying to show that a pipe is longer than how I have drawn it (trying to save paper space). Is the break line I've used sufficient or does it immediately tell the reader that I'm a rookie? Mot that I truly care what they think... its my drawing. But yea, just your thoughts on drafting standards.

Here is round tubular, maybe a 1980's version.

 

; DRAWS ELLIPSEOID ENDS ON A PIPE
(SETQ PT1 (GETPOINT "\n PICK PT1"))
(SETQ PT2 (GETPOINT "\n PICK PT2"))

(SETQ DIST (DISTANCE PT1 PT2))
(SETQ ANG (ANGLE PT1 PT2))
(SETQ MIDPT (POLAR PT1 ang (/ DIST 2.0)))
(SETQ BULGE (GETREAL "\n ENTER BULGE FACTOR  <40> ")) 

(if (= BULGE nil)(setq BULGE 0.4)(setq bulge (/ bulge 100)))
(SETQ DIST (/ DIST 4.0))
(SETQ PT3 (POLAR PT1 ANG DIST))
(SETQ ANG (+ ANG 1.5714))
(SETQ DIST (* DIST BULGE))
(SETQ PT3 (POLAR PT3 ANG DIST))
(COMMAND "ARC" PT1 PT3 MIDPT)
(COMMAND "COPY" "L" "" PT1 MIDPT)
(COMMAND "MIRROR" "L" "" PT1 PT2 "N")
(setq bulge nil
     pt1   nil
     pt2  nil)
(PRINC)
