identify parallel lines
« on: July 12, 2017, 08:55:38 am »
Any way to identify from a selection of lines or polylines which ones are parallel to the one you select? I really do not feel like redrawing something if I already know which ones are ok. Thanks for the help!

If the lines are reduced to unit vectors they should be directly comparable (with a bit of fuzz).
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

I kind of had to redraw it. But this is what I was looking at. We received an site plan from the architect. I wanted to make sure that the parking stalls were parallel with the building. So by selecting a line it would then high light all the lines that are parallel with it.
