“Divide” and “Measure”
With the command “Divide” we can split a line or a closed figure in “N” equal parts.
To divide you do not intend to break the lines and figures remain whole but there will be drawn over the points as described before.
These points, as such, will be represented by point style setting.
Divide command is not present on the toolbar, so we will have to activate it manually by typing “divide” on the keyboard and then hit Enter.
We see that on the command line is written “select object to divide” that is, select the object to be divided, then select a line or a figure, then appears on the command line:
“Enter the number of segments, ie enter the number of segments for which we want to divide the object.
For example, insert “4” and hit Enter, the object will be rendered three points that divide the object into 4 equal parts.
At this point the command will be close automatically.
If we did not see any change means that we must change the “point style” setting, however, points will be present but not visible and can be selected.
The “Measure” command is similar to “divide” but instead of dividing the object into equal parts, it split where it is possible, according to a measure that we determined.
To enable this feature, type “measure” on the keyboard followed by Enter.
Also this time we are asked to select an object and then appear on the command line:
“Specify length of segment” that specify the length of the segment for which the object will be divided up to where possible.
Typing 50 and pressing enter, a line can be split from the vertex nearest to the point where we checked, 50 units of its length ..
As you understand these two commands could be useful to draw reference points on the object on which we can draw lines or other lines or shapes, and then possibly delete them.
Dividing a circle into equal parts such as the inside we will draw a pattern into slices, or split a wall of a room in a plant, according to the size of the floor tiles to draw, etc.
