Pats,

Try this with your original file attached in first post.

In CamBam, do these steps;

1.  select all the Splines then, Edit->Convert To->Polyline
2.  select all the Polylines then, Edit->Polyline->Arc Fit, use a Tolerance of 0.01

I've attached a file with those steps already done.

I was really asking WHY you wanted to do that.

It would be useful if you could describe in words, without reference to g-code, what you are trying to achieve.

Press and hold the 'Shift' key as you drag the next point around, it will snap to 30,45,60,90 in all quadrants.
If you want a specified length of line, try this new plugin, http://www.cambam.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=6843.msg55757#msg55757

Version 2 added to first post, it's for CamBam v1 only (until the code gets sorted better, rectangle is tougher than I thought because you can't get the first point clicked from the editmode and so it's not known from which corner to start the resize.)

Added circle.

If no value is entered it works just like the normal circle function.
If a value is entered then Enter or Left Click to complete.

Dave,
Interesting !
If you are using s ratchet & pawl then a simple linear actuator would turn it

Did you press Enter before clicking a second point ?

DO NOT press Enter after entering a value unless you want to end the line drawing process

Edit: Yes, I've just tried it and if Enter is pressed before the second point is selected that's what happens.

Another Edit:  Cheesy  Fixed, thanks for the bug report Dave.

This is the work flow for this plugin;

1. click the start point
2. drag the next point around with the cursor ("rubber band" phase)
3. if desired, enter a value (just type some numbers DO NOT PRESS ENTER.)
4. if "rubber band" is dragged out long enough then a superimposed line will show, if not long enough then it won't show.
5. click left mouse button to fix next point
6. repeat steps 2 to 5 unitl finished then press 'Enter'

I got really fed up of coming from Rhino back to CamBam and not having a command line data entry method for the length of lines etc. so I was forced to have a go at this plugin.

Two versions (such a pain Cheesy errors produced on the graphics side with CBv1 if compiled for both versions)

1. After installation it appears in, Plugins->Dimensioned Line
2. Use as you would when drawing a Polyline, i.e. left click at required points, Enter to end, Esc to cancel.
3. BUT . . . you can enter a value for length just by typing a number, no dialogue boxes, do not press Enter, just type in a number. (use Backspace to erase digits if wrong number entered)
4. The angle constraint points are still active, it took a while to understand how to get this working  Huh

Let's begin;
So, now you have clicked on a start point and you are dragging the 'rubber band' line around before clicking on the next point.

1. If you DO NOT enter a value for length it works just the same as standard Polyline draw.
2. If you DO enter a length, and the 'rubber band' line is LONGER than that length then a superimposed line will appear that represents your required line. Left click and the superimposed line is chosen.
3. If you DO enter a length, and the 'rubber band' line is SHORTER than that length, it works just the same as standard Polyline draw. Left click and the 'rubber band' line is chosen.

A few minutes of play and the operation will become apparent.

I will be adding a circle and rectange to the plugin shortly.

Questions.
---------
1. The colour of the superimposed line is the inverse of the active layer colour, is that okay ?
2. If we have line, cicle, rectangle as options, is there room on the Entity Toolbar for them, or is there another way ? it needs to be easy to access them.

any other feedback required please  Wink

Edit:
Version1 attached - this is just a tester version, be sure to check back for updates if you install this.

Edit:
Version 2 attached, for CamBam 1 only
1. Added circle
Appears in; Plugins->Dimensioned Line
Appears in; Plugins->Dimensioned Circle

Edit:
Version 3 attached for CamBam 1 and 098
