Stitch hole creation and spacing

Postby jadeseven » Tue Feb 14, 2012 7:50 am

G'day mates,

Im new to CAD. I have designed some products on QCAD and would like to know if someone will kindly tell me how to create stitch holes. It seems that I can make little dots but I don't want to have to do each dot one by one on each patterns as that will take ages. Is there a short cut? And how can I make the stitch holes the same spacing/distance from each other, say if I needed to make five stitches per inch throughout, how would I do this? I SO very much appreciate any help.

Many kind regards,
JD

jadeseven: Interesting problem. With QCAD 3 scripting it would be relatively easy to create a tool that converts all selected lines / arcs into evenly spaced 'stitch holes' with a given stitch size and spacing. If stitches have to match up at corners, it's a bit more tricky.

Alternatively, the tool that clive mentioned could be improved to offer an option for 'as many points as needed with a fixed distance between points'.

How should this be visualized in the end? Just points with a certain distance or potentially also short lines with length A and spacing B?
