How can I insert a block or just a line at a same distance along a path made of lines and arcs?

In this drawing:

there is a road, but how can I draw street-lamps with 20 meters of distance?

Thanks!!!!

You need to proceed for lines and arcs separately.

please remember that 1 rad = 57.3°.

- For lines: use move-copy command.
- For arcs: you need to know the radius of the arc, then calculate the corresponding angle according to your distance (20 m). Say your radius is 40 m: the corresponding angle is
- Code: Select all
`distance/radius = 0.5 rad`

please remember that 1 rad = 57.3°.
