Apparent Midpoint Snap - AutoCAD Tip

From Draftsperson.net

(18 May, 2002)

To snap to the apparent mid point of any two points, (for example to get the center point of a square) use the online geometry calculator ‘CAL and enter the expression: (cur+cur)/2, then pick the two points you want to use. The command is transparent, so can be used in the middle of a circle command for example:

Command:_circle 3P/2P/TTR/<Center point: 'cal 
Expression: (cur+cur)/2 
Enter a point:_endp of 
Enter a point:_endp of 
Diameter/<Radius: enter radius 

You can also assign this command to a toolbar button by using the macro 'cal;(cur+cur)/2;
