Offsett Tips

Autocad Offsett Command

If you want to use the autocad to offset a line equal distances from a central line and you only know the overall distance type x/2 as the offset distance.
For example, if you have a line which needs to be at the midpoint of an overall offset of 762mm, use the following command: Offset - 762/2 - The line can now be offset 381mm either side.A great command for non-whole numbers or if you're not great at maths!
I personally use this one when I'm putting windows or doors on a floor plan and I want them to be central to the room, hence the midpoint.
