Hi Michael - I fussed around with a guidelines tool - maybe it will help, for now -

CLines.rhp (34.5 KB)
CLinesV7.rui (35.2 KB)

Make sure to un-block the rhp file in Windows.

AddCLine Add a ‘CLine’ or optionally as a Rhino guiide.

CLineDocSettings - not really useful I think - the scale factor part is from a previous version but you can set the layer

ConvertToGuides - converts linear curves on CLines layer to Rhino guides

ConvertToReference - does not do anything to the curve but moves any curve to the CLine layer

RefreshCLines - resets the extents of the CLines to suit the current view - this one is quite helpful as the lines are real lines in the document and not infinte lines.


Hi Pascal,

very nice, I will forward this to my customer.

Thank you very much
