Dividing

So simple yet so annoying.

 

I have a line I want to divide evenly. At each line I want to put a 2x2 square. When I place the square at the created divided points the spacing inbetween is consistent but the two end modulars are larger.


What is the best way to make sure the spacing is the same on both sides of each square?

 

Hope that makes sense.

Evenly spaced from center of box to center of box.

Or from one edge of box (say, left side) to the other's

left side of box. The nodes created shall reference

the same point of the boxes that are in between.

 

???

I was doing it center of box to center of box.

This obviously doesn't work with the two outter edges of the box as it is off half the box distance from the dimension from center to center.

I want to get each to be spaced perfectly so maybe it is a matter of left side of box to left side of box.

I don't know cause I don't know how to use the divide command to get that percise.

Someone else will no doubt prove me wrong but it doesn't work that way, add up the total length of the boxes, subtract that from the length of your line, and divide the remainder by the number of blocks +1, and that will give you the distance between the blocks.
