Help lines

Post by lalberts » Wed Mar 10, 2021 1:39 pm

Dear Dialux,

there is an option to 'center' the luminaire or group in a room.
but some rooms do not have an easy shape.
it would helpful to be able to place help lines in the middle and perpendicular two reference points.
or have some center-function between 2 walls or so, for corridors for instance.
some more contruction help functions for 'help lines' would be welcome. or I did not find them.

thanks
Lukas

Dear Lukas,

For now I use the helplines for center by length : 2 as size for the helpline.
From that point you can draw a second helpline as centerline.
You can do the same for the other two walls and you get the center.

But yes some more grab functions as in AutoCAD would be helpfull.

I hope its some help,

How do make a centerline? need to read the positions of the reference line and calculate the position of the second/centerline?

It would be enough to have a snap point in the middle of a helpline.. that would allow the drawing of a centerline.

My bad there is allready a centersnap,
Only its easier to start somewere in the room and end on the centerpoint.
Then move the starting point of the line on the correct possition.
so far its works with all lines, helplines, rooms, luminaire.

Improvement on it would be a symbol if you got the snap point
and for every differend snappoint a differend symbol.

I do not find any snap point in center or elsewhere, not on a wall, neither on a helpline.
did I miss a setting?
my building is an ifc import.. any relevance?

thanks for your patience
groetjes
Lukas
