Modify Line length to set length?

Is it possible to modify an existing line to a set length?

Using Extend I can only pick a length or “add” a distance to a line, but not specify the final set length.

Any other trick to modify a Line length?

Hi Rolf - the ‘by hand’ way is to Scale1d:

Select the line, Scale1D, snap to one end, snap to the other, and then type in the desired length and Enter.

-Pascal

other way could be using Divide if the final lenght is shorter. and extend it first if is larger.

Not so intuitive, but it worx!

Thanks.

Hi Rolf - you can also try this thing if you are feeling adventurous - it has a bunch of related commands:

SetCurveLength
SetArcDegrees
SetArcRadians
SubCrvFromMid
3PtArcFromPoints
3PtArcFromPolyline
ArcFitToCurve
ArcFitToPoints
ArcFitToPolyline
RadiusFrom3Pts

You’ll need to un-block the plug-in from Windows before drag and drop onto Rhino.

I always feel that way…

Cool, SetCurveLength is right on! Good stuff.
