 Linetypes for dot drawings
24-07-2012 09:12 . am | View his/her posts only
I am working on linetypes that match the dot's requirements for roadway drawing. I thought the linetypes size could be set as a 10' Stripe with a 30' Spacing between them. I tried to make one but the beginning and ending stripes were longer or shorter depending on the overall lines length. Can you guys help?

The linetypeyou want just requires the correct pattern you may need to reset the line type scale or else change the numbers so its correct for a scale of 1
this is equal spacing
*EQUAL,_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
A,0.30,-0.30

Something like this is what you want
*LANE,____ _____ ____
A,3.00,-9.00
