Unlike common array function, LayoutByPath distributes object copies along a path (curve) with a variety of array options. Users can choose random, division and measure options and array in different directions along the path.

Benefits of LayoutByPath
-Easy way to distribute object copies along a path.
-Efficient distribution options such as: random, division and measure.

You can access to AreaSum from:

Menu:Express tools > Edit > Layoutbypath Command Entry:Layoutbypath Ribbon:Express tools > Edit > Layoutbypath

For example on mapping drawing, we can apply this tool to array the discontinuous central axis of the road or highway as shown below:

As it is showed, designers can adjust the angle and length of the object at will and distribute them along the path by the options of random, division and measure; it's very easy to distribute object copies along a path and efficient for highway designing.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
