Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command is used to extend one line in order to meet another, in the current document.

Access

This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Edit » Objects » Extend command from the main menus.

Use

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a square and you will enter line extend mode. The procedure involves the following sequence of actions:

  1. Select a target line. This is the line to which the chosen line will be extended to meet. Simply position the cursor over the required line and click.
  2. Select the line that is to be extended. Again, position the cursor over the required line and click. If the line to be extended, when extrapolated, would intersect with the target line, it will be extended to connect with the target line at this intersection point. If no intersection would occur, a warning dialog appears, alerting you to this fact, and the line will not be extended.
  3. Continue extending further lines, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit.

Tips

  1. Multi-edged polylines can be specified as the target, but not as the line you wish to extend. You must explode the polyline into its constituent line segments if you need to extend one of its edges.
  2. Arcs cannot be extended.
