CenterLine Tool

The CenterLine Tool by Cadman lets a SketchUp users draw a centerline based upon successive triple point selections anywhere in the model or on existing geometry.

Selecting three pionts then hitting Escape key places a guide point at the center of the three clicks.

Draw to a single point by clicking twice on the same first point.

Draw to a midpoint between 2 pick points and the line will be drawn to where the cyan X is during the third click.

Draw to a centerpoint from 3 pick points, and the line will be drawn to where  the purple X is during the third click.

Tool operation:

The cursor will show a number 1 as you move it on the screen.
   It is requesting that you click on a first pick point.
   Click a first point.

The cursor will now show a number 2, requesting a second pick point.
   The tool will show a cyan X midway between the first point and the current location of the cursor.
   Click a second point and

The cursor will show a number 3, requesting a third pick point.
   The tool will show a purple X at the circum center of the first two points and the current cursor location.
   Click a thrid point, and a construction point is placed at the center of the points and you will now be drawing a line from that point.

Continue selecting sets of three points and a centerline will be drawn between each successive center point.

for a MID-POINT: If you click the third point at the same location as the second point, the tool draws the centerline to the midpoint between the first and second locatoins, (indicated by a cyan X between the points).

for a SINGLE POINT: If you click the second point on the first point, the tool draws the centerline to that point directly.

Note: If you click only three points and hit Escape, the tool generates a single construction point at the center location.

Handy for walls, roads, piping routing, centering, and concentric modeling.
