Moves entities using guide curves.

BricsCAD Lite; BricsCAD Pro; BricsCAD Mechanical; BricsCAD BIM



Automatically aligns moved entities with relevant geometry, using temporary guide curves. Polyline segments are also accepted as guide lines.


The command can be executed in two ways:

Pre-pick mode

First select entities, then launch the command.

Note: The entities to be copied are displayed in green.
Post-pick mode

Launch the command, then select the entities using a selection window.

Note: All entities that fall completely within the selection window, including polyline segments, are included in the copy selection set and are displayed in yellow. Entities that cross the selection window are used as guide curves and are displayed in blue.

Blue arrows indicate the anchor points and direction of the guide curves. The moved entities will only align with geometry that matches the number of guide curves and distances between them.

Click to place the moved entity or type a distance in the dynamic entry fields.
