Changes the length of
objects and the included angle of arcs.
You can specify changes as a percentage, an
increment, or as a final length or angle. LENGTHEN is an alternative
to using TRIM or EXTEND.
List of Prompts
The following prompts
an object or [DElta/Percent/Total/DYnamic]: Select
one object or enter an option
Displays the length and, where applicable, the included
angle of the object.
LENGTHEN does not affect closed objects. The extrusion
direction of the selected object need not be parallel to the Z axis
of the current user coordinate system (UCS).
Changes the length of an object by a specified increment,
measured from the endpoint that is closest to the selection point.
Delta also changes the angle of an arc by a specified increment, measured
from the endpoint that is closest to the selection point. A positive
value extends the object; a negative value trims it.
- Delta Length
Changes the length of the object by the specified
Changes the included angle of the selected arc by
the specified angle.
Sets the length of an object by a specified percentage
of its total length.
Sets the length of a selected object by specifying the
total absolute length from the fixed endpoint. Total also sets the
included angle of a selected arc by a specified total angle.
- Total Length
Lengthens the object to the specified value
from the endpoint that is closest to the selection point.
Sets the included angle of the selected arc.
Turns on Dynamic Dragging mode. You change the
length of a selected object by dragging one of its endpoints. The
other end remains fixed.
