I just read #260. Then I found #484 and thought it could be a good idea to create a user-definable grid layout not only based on common grid patterns as proposed in #484, but as individual lines a user can define based on a starting point (maybe the pattern root) up- and downwards and left/right, with their distance based on concrete calues or calculations dereived from the measurement table. This might help in different construction workflow ways of thinking: based on a strict common grid system, based on individual help lines, etc.
So you could have two different ways of grid creation:
- create an even grid layout up/down/left/right with x ( i. e. 1cm, 5cm, 1in, 4in lines) distance
- create a list with “distance-from-pattern-root values” (in or cm) and only draw those lines, i. e.
`* 3.47 (x) up - ( ) down - ( ) left - ( ) right
- 5.67 ( ) up - (x) down - ( ) left - ( ) right
- 24.5 ( ) up - (x) down - ( ) left - ( ) right
- (heigth+7) ( ) up - (x) down - ( ) left - ( ) right
- 12.0 ( ) up - ( ) down - (x) left - ( ) right
- 30.8 ( ) up - ( ) down - (x) left - ( ) right
- (chest_widht/4) ( ) up - ( ) down - ( ) left - (x) right`
Direction values are based on the root point of the pattern.
What do you think?
