Have You Tried: Divide and Measure Commands

Divide and Measure Commands in AutoCAD

We’re excited to share another Have You Tried article with you this month. 

Ever needed to place several evenly spaced objects like a block of a light post, or trees along a street or walking path? You might have evaluated the length, did a little math, and then figured out how far apart each object needed to be.

But there’s a faster way!

DIVIDE and MEASURE can help you to divide an object equally or based on a specific interval, and place points or blocks along an object.

In this Have You Tried, we’ll cover how to perform the following:

  • Set a point style
  • Divide an object with the DIVIDE and MEASURE commands
  • Place blocks at equal intervals

Learn about the DIVIDE and MEASURE commands in AutoCAD with the step-by-step examples in Have You Tried: Divide and Measure Commands topic.
