Quickest way to cut this interception?

Hi everyone,

 

I'd like to hear people's opinions on how they would do to cut the selected left line in two to the interception point of the perpendicular line and the left one as quick as possible?

 

Wish I could have a better way than to trim the bottom part, and draw a new line. 

 

If you have a quickest way to make this, I want to hear it =) Thanks

Break, but the one comes with autocad doesn't work that good. You need break at intersection autolisp.

Thanks for your answer,

but, the problem with break is that this isn't precise, or maybe I've not check the command in details. When I try to break something, I've no snaps. Don't know if it's the case of others too?

Hi, you don't need a lisp routine for this. Just use the break command, select the line, when it asks for second point enter F and click on the intersection (make sure your snap is on). It will then ask for second point. Just click on the intersection again.

Hello
YES but I believe that Patchy said the standard "Break" command is not very fast/efficient !

I guess it depends on your preferences. To me typing 3 letters, 2 space bar clicks, and three mouse clicks is about as fast as I need to do it.:smileyvery-happy:

below is a tiny lisp routine that I have used for many years - the ba stands for "break at" and you just select the entity you want to break and then, with osnaps on, where you want to break it. Two keys, a spacebar, two clicks - done.

 

(defun C:BA ()
(setvar "cmdecho" 1)
(command ".break" pause "f" pause "@")(princ))

Break hundreds of intersections, your finger joints will be painful.

Hello

 

YES --> :smileytongue:

 

But my preferred Autodesk Software is AutoCAD MAP (or CIVIL)  !

So with MAPCLEAN / Break at Intersection/Crossing : No problemo !!
