copy 1 spline and get exact amount between them

Postby jonnyb » Fri Dec 14, 2007 11:27 am

hi, i want to copy one spline and have same distance between them. is that possible?
since this spline looks like a snake and i want to have 300 pixel between them. (just copy dosesent work since some part of that snake is closer than other part) if i could tell qcad that i need same width from spline-A. that will solve the problem.

QCad cannot produce equidistant splines.

You might want to try this instead:
- explode your spline - this leaves you with a bunch of lines
- combine those lines into a polyline using the "polyline from segments" function
- create an equidistant to that polyline using the "equidistant polyline" function
