unable to pick endpoints

Is it quicker/easier than the library?  Can you pick start/end if the dist is unknown? How about along a path (great for tubing)?

I think so.

Sure, uses (getdist)

Well it's a steel program so no it won't extrude along a path.

I've found that blocks are considerably lighter memory-wise than 3dsolids or regions, and less susceptible to errant corners than surfaces. We also have tools in place for changing the length of the shapes, or switching them out for a different shape.

The only thing I use surfaces for is eccentric reducers ... I still can't get those reducers to open!! Arrrrggggggghhhhhh!!!!

Oh well, I've lived without them for all this time.....

I have another one I sometimes use as well. It only creates the shapes & more simple to use, but has some errors. What I would like to do is convert the shapes into blocks after it is drawn using the entmake program. Unfortunately, I am no coder.  :cry:

Neither am I.  I used the dreaded
