It just seems very cumbersome to have to work out each and every vertex by hand before plotting them. Thank you, Mohan

The first vertex belongs to your edge, the second is the location where the first selected edge is supposed to be. http://my.fit.edu/itresources/manual...mg0203.htm#215 __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider Last edited by -mAx-; March 10, 2011 at 03:19.
