    Hey guys, not really a member of any other forums, so I thought I'd post here before signing up to 100 other sites.

    I'm working in landscape architecture, and need to construct lines along a curve. each line needs to be perpendicular to its intersection point on the curve, and all at 800mm intervals along the centreline. I've tried the Measure tool, but then I am left with 1000 lines to rotate to 90degrees..
    Can anyone please help with this situation?

    Thankyou
    Ryan

    use the measure tool, but insert a block (the block can just be a simple line). Make sure you align the block to the string you're 'measuring'.

    if it's a single radius curve, you can give the array command a go as well.

    I'm trying to make sense of what you want to do...

    Do one line and then use the offset command.

    Oh and PS Ryan, tell some Swiss chicks to come to Perth, we need to even out the bogan:normal ratio.
