Vertical line to the rightmost point of a spline

Postby silaste » Fri Nov 14, 2008 9:51 am

I'm making a draft of an electric guitar. I first created the front view of the body using splines. To do the sideview I would need to draw vertical auxlines from the extremities of the body contour (spline). Is there any way to do this exactly or do I have to position the lines by eye with point-on-entity snap?

If my meaning isn't clear, take a look at a Fender Stratocaster from the front. The body has two horns which are the spline extremities in my draft that I'm talking about.

Your mean something like this:

Code: Select all

--------------+------------------------ ....

Creat a new Layer, copy 1:1 the form. Then cut the form where you whant, then draw some strait lines - QCad will snap where you cut the lines of the spline in this "extra layer".

has plans created with QCad.
