Command name: INSUL. Asks for three points, first two defining insulation thickness, third defining length/extent from second -- convenient when wall sheathing/drywall lines exist (though does not work by selecting them), but also works unconnected to existing entities; straight-line paths only. Draws line-segmented Polyline, then Fits curve to it. Has offset option to set drawn loops away from sheathing/drywall lines by user-specified amount. Loops are spaced slightly apart. Proportions size of loops to fit overall length exactly. User must hit Return to "finish." Width and offset must be specified each time (does not save as defaults; offers default offset each time, proportioned on width). Does strange things if three points do not form right angle.
