The best work-around would be to array reference lines, or drafting lines and
then use the Split tool on each "intersection" This is one of only a couple of
commands that AutoCAD has, that Revit does not have.
Related NOOB question (I'm switching from Autocad and am forced to speak in its terms):
In Autocad, if I have a road centerline using a spline-fit polyline and want to find the midpoint of its length I use the DIVIDE command to divide the polyline into 2 segments and a point is placed at the middle of its length. Using Revit model or detail lines to create a similar curved line, I can see the length of the line in Properties, but don't see any way to find its midpoint (or third-points or quarter-points etc.). Is there a way to divide this curving model or detail line into equal segments? And if not, how would I go about determining the midpoint?
I'm sorry, I should have been more specific. I meant is there a way to divide a line into even segment lengths, like the divide command would do for AutoCAD where I could just select a line, arc, circle, or polyline and have it divided into X# of equal length segments?
Following is a link to what I found for more complicated line / arc combinations (look for workflow on page 2 by eddy.lermytte):
