hi i would like to divid my 20 metres octagonal tappered pole into 3 metre parts. so that i can draw the plate for cutting in the workshop. how do i cut it into diofferent parts to see the size of each section upwards
Try unfolding the part then offsetting all of the edges from one end by the 3 Metre distance then offset from the resulting sketch 3 Metres continuing until you have the required amount of sketches you need to divide the pole into.
Then using the split feature you can "chop" the pole into the individual lengths you need. Now proceed to use fold feature for each section.
You should now have a pole divided up as required.
