Linetype help please??

Hi all,


I wonder if anyone would be so kind as to help me out with a linetype issue I have?


I am drawing up a house and I wondered if anyone has (or knows where I can download) two linetypes that I can use to represent brick coursing?


I think that what I need is very simple (unless I'm missing something) but all of my searches so far have been unsuccessful and I have tried to follow instructions for creating a linetype but that hasn't worked either! 


All I need is one linetype that shows vertical lines that are 75 drawing units high and are equally spaced at 102 drawing unit intervals to represent one course of bricks and another linetype that shows vertical lines that are 75 drawing units high and are equally spaced at 215 drawing unit intervals to represent a different course of bricks.


Basically  :    | 102 space | 102 space | 102 space | 102 space | 102 space |   etc


Is this possible to achieve?  (I'm hoping that I'll be able to start the line in the midpoint of a course and extend/trim the line to suit the length required - similar to how the batting linetype works to represent insulation in a wall/roof).


If anyone can help out a confused & frustrated AutoCAD user I'd be eternally grateful.  Thanks for your time!


(I guess that this would also work as a dynamic block too if anyone has those already drawn up and is feeling generous?) :smileyhappy:
