Need Help! - Trying to build a variant of the BREAK command
- Hello Everyone,
I'm attempting to recreate the break command and add some command specific
functionality. Simply put it would input a distance and a counterpoint on the
entity and break to each side half the distance.
In theory this seemed quite simple.
Get the distance, get the entity, get the centerpoint of the break, then ECut2
on the selected point. Then is seamed just a matter of using ECut2 again on
each resulting half of half the distance.
This actually works on a path with only two points. But not on anything else.
I guess my question is "Can I piggyback off of the internal command of 'break'
somehow, is there other internal FastCAD commands that would make this easier or
will I need to do this the long, hard 'Comp Sci' algorithmic way?"

It was only a partial solution, of course, as solutions usually are, and
addressed only one specific problem, as solutions usually do. But, as was often
also true, it opened the door - if only a crack - for the multitude of solutions
