General Usage Instructions

Basic Usage: 

On first run, a prompt appears: 

PROMPT:  Pick point on polyline at which to add tuning section: Pick a point on the polyline or Polyline Arc to tune. The Trombone dialog appears and the beginning Minimum /Maximum length values will be calculated and displayed at bottom of dialog box. 

In the Trombones Shaping area: 

Select the Chamfer radio button to create chamfered corners and type a chamfer distance in the Size edit box or select the Fillet radio button for filleted corners and type a radius value in the Size edit box. If no special corners are desired, pick the None radio button and the app will use a standard 90 degree angle for corners.

In the Min. Loop Clearance Gap edit box, type the gap distance to maintain between polyline edges.

Use the Loop Count slider left and right buttons to add or remove the number of loops (trombone tunes).

The Current Length value: Each time a new trombone tune is added to the same polyline, the length will be re-calculated when a polyline segment is picked. When adjusting the Loop count, the Minimum and Maximum values will also be updated in real-time to calculate the range available.

In the New Length edit box, type the desired value. It needs to be greater than (but not less than) the Minimum length entered.

Pick Cancel to exit and not store changes.

Pick Exit to store changes and exit the dialog in the same session.

Pick Tune and the selected polyline segment or Polyline Arc will be created and the prompt will repeat.
