  2. Select the entity that you want to parallel.
  3. Select the side where you want the parallel entity located.
  4. Specify which side to place the copy on.

Result.

Parallel: ENTER for Through point <Distance>: To specify the distance you want the parallel copy offset enter a value or specify two points. To specify a point through which you want the parallel copy offset, choose Through point.

To specify the offset distance

Enter the offset distance or specify two points.

Select entity: Select the entity that you want to parallel.

Both sides <Side for parallel copy>: Select the side where you want the parallel copy located (right or left side). To create a parallel copy on both sides, choose Both sides.

Select entity: Select another entity that you want to parallel.

To specify a point through which the entity is offset

Choose Through point.

Select entity: Select the entity that you want to parallel.

Through point: Select the point through which you want the copy to pass.

Select entity: Select another entity that you want to parallel.

To create parallel entities from polylines

 

  1. Select the entity you want to parallel.
  2. Select the side on which you want the parallel entity located.

Select entity: Select the polyline entity that you want to parallel.

Wrap Both sides <Side for parallel copy>: Select the side where you want the parallel copy located. To wrap the parallel copy around the selected entity, choose Wrap. To create a parallel copy on both sides, choose Both sides.

To wrap the parallel copy

 

  1. Select the entity you want to parallel.
  2. To create an inside wrap, choose to Wrap the parallel copy, and select the side.
  3. To create an outside wrap, choose to Wrap Both Sides, and select the side.

Choose Wrap. A wrapped copy of the polyline does not cross itself.

Both sides <Side for parallel copy>: Select the side where you want the parallel copy located. To wrap the parallel copy around the selected entity, choose Wrap. To create a parallel copy on both sides, choose Both sides.

Select entity: Select another entity that you want to parallel.
