Array of concentric, scaled objects


Hi all.
Is there a way to create, say N concentric circles with a given radius step? (other
than creating N circles, dimension them and then make them concentric)
and more generally, is there a way to create an Array of concentric, scaled objects?
This would be kind of an Array command, but with an offset in the scale rather than
in the position.

Thanks
Regards.

Re: Array of concentric, scaled objects


I realized this can be done with the chain offset command.
Although, it would take some time to create a high number of offset objects.
So if you have any ideas to speed it up, they are welcome.
Thanks.

Floor Plans and architectural drawings

I downloaded SE because I was looking for freeware to create simple
architectural drawings, i.e., ductwork layouts, piping riser diagrams and
floor plans. These types of drawings needn't be as accurate or precise as
machining drawings, which SE seems to be for. Obviously, SE is tremendously
powerful, and consequently complex. Is this the best tool for what I need,
or can someone suggest another, simpler program that will allow me to create
these types of drawings? Perhaps there is a way to set-up SE more simply for
the tasks I need?. Thanks!

Re: Floor Plans and architectural drawings

I'm sure there are plenty of architecturally minded apps available that will
cater specifically to your needs, but the trick is finding free ones.
Perhaps you can explain what you are having trouble with and we may be able
to make suggestions to help you.
