Start drawing chain on a face or an edge.

Jay Thomas is back this month with a creative AutoCAD routine that draws chain. This routine includes a dialog box, slide library, and several drawings. Put these files in a directory that is part of your support file search path, so that AutoCAD can find these files. Start by loading the LISP file, then type in the command Chain. The first time you run it, a dialog will appear where you can set the various options, such as chain size and type, and choose whether to start drawing the chain on a face or an edge. Subsequent command executions will skip the settings dialog, but you can access it with the O option. After the options are set, start selecting points in your drawing, and the chain will be drawn.
