I'm looking for a linetype to use for my cut-fill lines.  Any suggestions?

Ok, but the one linetype I've seen used on many plans for cut-fill lines looks like this:

 

--------||--------||--------||--------||--------||--------

 

I tried creating this linetype myself but I can't get it exactly right.  I know others here at my work create this linetype manually by using the MEASURE command to place a block of an equals sign along their daylight polyline and trimming a bunch.  This seems way too hard.  I guess I'm just looking for a linetype of the above

Add the following to your ACAD.LIN file and choose "CUT-FILL" linetype:

 

*CUT-FILL,alias for CUT-FILL
A,.125,-.0625,.125,-.0625,.125,-.0625,.125,-.0625,.125,-.168,["||",LTYPETXT,S=0.112,R=0.0,X=-0.09,Y=-0.056],-.025
