My drafting instructor showed my a command in AutoCAD where you can copy circles, rectangles, etc. along a polyline. this is what i mean...
I start out with a polyline with an object at a certain or random location on the polyline. I want to copy the object along the polyline. I placed a before and after picture of what i'm talking about. how i got the after picture is this: i used the divide command and it asked me how many segments. I entered 20 and it places 20 points along the polyline. then i had to copy the object to the snap locations of the points. is there an easier way of doing this?
Are you sure you're paying attention to the command line as Patchy instructed? After you select the object to measure, you'll be prompted if you want to use a block. Type "B" for block, then enter the block name.
i finally figured it out. you guys were right. the only thing i was doing wrong was not choosing the midpoint of the block i was creating. stupid me. and i'm out of school now, but i should have known to remember this. but there was a 8 month gap between gradutating and gettting a job. sorry guys.
