We’re really excited for the Have You Tried this month: Breaking Objects. I know you’re thinking, why would I want to break objects? Have you ever needed to break a linear or curved object to create a gap or at a specified location with no gap? Maybe you would like to change part of the linework to a different linetype, color, or layer.
Using BREAK or BREAKATPOINT is an efficient way to break a line or arc at a specified location creating two objects that can each have different properties.
In this Have You Tried, we’ll cover how to:
- Break an object to add a gap
- Break an object at a specified location with no gap
- Break a circle
- Break an object at a specified location and change its layer
Learn how to break linear and curved objects at specified locations to create and modify objects with the step-by-step examples in the Have You Tried: Breaking Objects topic.
