How to change line "caps" on rhino (round to butt)


I need to have crisp dotted lines on my Rhino drawing, but the default dotted line is rounded.
How does one change a ROUND line cap to a BUTT line cap?

I’m using the term “butt” from illustrator for a square end. Not trying to be comedic.

I don’t think there’s a way to do that.
I remember way back in HPGL/2 driver days that was possible.
Maybe @stevebaer knows but I’m pretty sure you only get round line termination.

You’re right JB, we currently only support rounded ends.


Hi Steve,

Is there any talk at McNeel of adding this capability? It’s a small detail, but would be nice.

Not in the near future. There are other issues that are taking precedence.


Any news on this?

From WIP, I just exported a drawing to PDF, and I don’t like the line ends. I am looking for the opposite of @milosutter though: In my case the caps ends are square or butt, and I want them round.


Bumping this up again. Small feature but would be great to control line cap and corner styles.
