I am testing out v19 to see if the new array options can be made to work for my situtaion. Specifically, I am working for a firm that makes chambers from panels that lock together. In my test, I drew a line to represent one wall, and then added a block to one end, to illustrate the panel. Then, I created an array of the block along the path, giving "measure" as the option. In this case, the panels are 36" wide.
I can change, the line length, and the number of wall panels will adapt. However, when I use explorer to see how many of the wall panel blocks exist, it is not correct. In the attached example, Explorer shows that there are 2 of them, when there are 4 in the drawing. If I explode the array, it says that there are 5 of this block.
What is going on?
Another question relates to how many blocks are arrayed along the path. It seems that you are only offered the option of having as many blocks as needed to fully fill the line. If I recall correctly, in Autodesk's dynamic block arrays, you had the option of using a formula to allow you to choose only as many whole pieces would fit. In my situation, an odd-sized custom panel would fill in the empty space. Another situation where this may be useful, is if you have an array of holes. Obviously, half a hole is not useful. Is there any way to accomplish something like that using the features into BricsCAD?
