Title: How create a wave line with shape sheet formulas?
Post by: mfPanter on January 27, 2012, 07:21:10 AM
Hi

We draw our PID (Process and Instrumentation Diagrams) with Visio. According to EN ISO 10628:2000 hoses are shown as wave lines.

I know how to create a wave line either with the freeform tool or with the arc tool. The problem is, that every time the length of the shape changes we
either have to accept that the scale changes or we have to combine two shapes...

Therefore I would like to have a wave line shape with a certain shape sheet logic that the lenght can be change and that the shape adds more arcs or less arcs but does not change the scale of the arcs.

Does anybody know what kind of shape sheet logic needed is?
 
Thank you in advance for your suppot

Next option would be custom line patern.
Here is excelent stuff.

Dear JuneTheSecond

It works fine with custom line pattern. Thank you very much for your answer.
