How can I extend a line by an exact distance? I have tried using the length

option but half the time the opposite end of the line gets extended.

Thanks,

Tom

2. Use the Stretch command to extend the line or other geometry by a keyed in x,y value. Box in the end of the line you wish to move and key in the appropriate distance.

3. If you're extending to other geometry try the Extend to Next command

The Stetch command works great on horizontal and vertical lines, but on angled lines the x y values are not as useful.

1. Select the line and change it's length value. By your description I assume this is what you are doing now.

2. Use the Stretch command to extend the line or other geometry by a keyed in x,y value. Box in the end of the line you wish to move and key in the appropriate distance.

3. If you're extending to other geometry try the Extend to Next command

1. Select the line and change it's length value. By your description I assume this is what you are doing now.

2. Use the Stretch command to extend the line or other geometry by a keyed in x,y value. Box in the end of the line you wish to move and key in the appropriate distance.

3. If you're extending to other geometry try the Extend to Next command

Add a lock constraint to the end of the line you want to br fixed. Then

select the line. In the length field of the line you will see the length and

units ( ex: 50.0000 mm ). Edit the field to remove the unit and add + or -

the value you want to change it by (ex: 50.0000 + 10 ). The resultant length

will be 60.000 mm. It will lengthen on the end that is not locked. You can

also lock one end and place a sriving dimension. then change the dimension

to the desired value. The key here is to lock the fixed end then you can

delete the lock constraint afterward.

Regards,

Rick B.
