Create drawings from models (Creo Elements/Direct Annotation) > Plot line pattern length style setting
Plot line pattern length style setting
Seven broken line types can be used in Creo Elements/Direct Annotation drawings. Each type of line consists of a pattern repeated in a continuous sequence to produce the line. When printing, you can set the length of the individual patterns of each line type, or all lines together, affecting the fineness of the lines.
The figure shows two dash-center lines drawn with different pattern lengths. The arrows indicate the pattern length.
