It is very difficult to do by hand. There is a tool in my Library Object Manager that will generate fences of any length using RWY12 or other fence objects. It uses an algorithm to start one panel immediately on the previous one. However be aware that there is a certain amount of effort to get LOM set up and if you only want to place a few panels you might not feel it worth the effort

Hi JetRangerDigging back into my annals of history when I created CYVR5, I found a very useful technique was to use AFCAD to create an apron whose outside boundary was along the fence perimeter, ie the apron nodes coincided with the fence nodes. I cannot remember the full details now, but you had to delete the closing coordinates so as to have an open fence at each end. Sure saved a lot of work trying to fix each node of the fence.The following link may help you, my entries are towards the end of the message.http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/archive/i...php/t-4651.htmlNigelVancouver
