unfortunately I have not found an easy solution.
I have to build a fence, total length 170 meters and need to place the pillars.
The segments are from 6.2 to 50.3 meters long, no horizontal or vertical direction, just exactly as it says on the map.
And the columns have to be 2.05 meters apart. The rest of the segment (less than 2.05 meters) should stay that way, a smaller fence field must be built there.
I have not found anything suitable for this. Have overlooked something?
Thank you in advance
A new 'painter' was an easy thing. 'SideSqauredShape' (without a preview yet).
FP does all the math on most basic entity types as base-line.
It is similar as with painter 'SqauredShape' but that one is centered over the base.

I'll have to upgrade this .... :wink:
