Q - question

Directional copying of AutoCAD drawing objects.

A - answer With the freeware utility CoDOf (see) you can easily copy drawing objects in a given direction.

Multiply the selected objects by specifying two independent parameters - the direction and offset (distance). You can then repeat the offset manually or automatically (number of repetitions), or you can change it on the go.

Download the application CoDOf (copy with directional offset) from, load it with APPLOAD and run it by typing the CODOF command.
