This plug-in works with open-ended line segments. If a line
endpoint does not touch another entity, then it is considered a "stray
line". There are 4 options to choose from to work with stray lines with
- Show Only
This option will add text label to
each open ended line segment. It will label them 1 of "n" through
"n" of "n". The whole operation can be reversed with a
single UNDO. After you run Label, and you determine that certain lines
should actually be touching, but they don't, you can run CloseOpens to have a line
drawn between the end points so that you can make faces.
This option merely scans the active
selection (or the current scope of the model if nothing is selected) and if and
when it finds open ended line segments, it adds them to the current selection.
All open ended line segments in the
current scope of activity will be deleted. The deletes are all combined into a
single UNDO operation.
This option will find all the open
ended line segments. Then, if it finds any, all other entities within the current
scope of editing are hidden. All hiding takes place under a single UNDO
This set of functions is well suited for those trying to
estimate how much effort it might take to clean up a bad drawing (this would
typically be an imported CAD drawing).
StrayLines shows up in the Plugins Menu.
