Break entities into different pieces based on different options. (e.g. specified points, intersection, specified distance, and equal parts).

General Usage Instructions

Whenever you want to break an entity to pieces for any reason (e.g. assign different properties for each piece), this tool can help you, by providing multiple options to break an object like divide, measure, intersection, and specified points. The tool will allow you to do this quickly and efficiently. 

The plug-in contains four commands as follows:

Break At Points:

Breaks entities based on specified points. The following prompts are displayed:

  • Select objects to break - Select set of entities you want to break, you can break the following entities:

Line, Polyline, Xline, Ray, Arc, Circle, Ellipse, and Spline.

  • Specify a breaking point - Specify a point on one of the selected entities, the entity will be broken on this point. Once selected, you will be asked to select the next breaking point.

 Please note that closed object (e.g. circle) requires at least two breaking points. Done After specifying all breaking points, select done to execute the command. Undo Remove the most recent breaking points.

Break At Object:

Breaks entities based on their intersections with other objects. The following prompts are displayed:

  • Select objects to break - Select set of entities you want to break, you can break the following entities:

Line, Polyline, Xline, Ray, Arc, Circle, Ellipse and Spline.

  • Select cutting objects - This set of object will work as cutting edges for the previously selected objects, this set might include: Line, Polyline, Xline, Ray, Arc, Circle, Ellipse, Spline and Point.
