    Sketchup - Segmented Line Drawing Tool/Plugin?

    I'm looking for a Sketchup plugin that will allow me to draw a line, then divide it into equal length segments. Similar to how the Circle tool works for setting the number of sides. Ideally, I'd click to start the line, click to stop the line, then type in the number of segments.

    Right now, I'm actually trying to lay out a garden. I have 22' linear feet to divide up between different plants that require different amounts of space, but also I want to see how it will look with closer or wider spacing.

    Conceptually, similar to this:


    Thanks.

    Well, nevermind! Turns out Sketchup already does that, I just needed to figure it out.

    1) Draw a line
    2) Right click the line
    3) Choose 'Divide' from the menu.

    It even has this nifty little animation showing the endpoints and the distance between the endpoints.

    Thanks!

    Glad you found it. I only just looked in now to see your post.

    Another option would be Divide CPoint which divides a line with guide points instead of breaking the line like the native Divide does. It's handy when you want to mark out the points but you want to keep the edge intact.
