This topic has been mentioned once before, but there was no solution at the time. I’m hoping that maybe now, someone might be able to suggest a workaround.
I’ve been using Rhino for 10 years, primarily for architectural design as a 3D package in combination with AutoCad. However, I’m trying to shift to doing all 2D work in Rhino from now on if possible.
There’s one command that I really miss, which I can’t work out how to make in Rhino. In Cad, I have the ability to use XL Lines (infinite lines) which I have set to a hotkey. This means I can push one button and automate either an infinite horizontal (x axis) or vertical (y axis) to appear where I have my cursor. In Rhino, I use the line or polyline command (which is also to a hotkey) but it requires selecting where the line will start and where the line will end. Although, trying to get around this seems extremely lazy, when you spend all day drawing straight lines the extra clicking of start points and end points definitely adds up.
Is there a way to create a script, or tool to allow me to press one button that will create a straight (vertical/horizontal) line at the location of my cursor, without having to select where it starts and will end? Doesn’t have to be infinite, just a long line…
