Create custom linetype
« on: June 18, 2021, 08:53:42 AM »
Hi all!
I am trying to create a custom linetype.
I created a block, load it on cad program, and created a linetype with this block.

However, I have a problem when drawing with this type of line.
When i draw, i visualize a part of a straight line and only after a while, i visualize my block.
See image attack for better understand me.

Is there a method that allows me to start directly with the block, without straight line?

I attach the block, the linetype and screenshot.

Thank you very much

A,0,[FORMARINGHIERA,formaringhiera,s=1],-1.000

If my memory serves. Problem is your shx file is too long. You are going to have a space on the start and end.

Only by recreating the shx file.
Here is an example for you.

I used the express tools mkshape and mkltype for this. My objects are on 0 and the line is on g-medium.

Try changing the start of the second line of the linetype definition from A to S.
