Request - Centerline Cross Creation Tool ...

Post by Husky » Tue Aug 13, 2013 9:15 pm

Yes I know - I'm lazy but maybe not only me .... ;-)

It would be nice to have an "Automatic" tool to create a Centerline Cross for circles and arcs.

I could imagine to click on a tool button - click on a circle or arc - give the values for the overshoot and the orientation of the Centerline cross - and done! 8)

If somebody has already a "Centerline Cross Creation Tool" or is able to program one for QCAD it would be highly appreciated if you share this tool with the community in this forum :wink:

Definition of task:
- creates Center cross lines for circles and arcs (ellipses?),
- Line attributes dependent on active Layer,
- Option-box for overshoot setting,
- Option-box for orientation setting,
- not as a block,

I just had to draw centerlines to many circles and arcs, so I support this request. Such a tool would indeed be very helpful.

Idea: The overshoot should be entered either by absolut value or in percent of diameter.
