DIVIDE SEGMENTS

  UNIQUE  

Snap the divided segment points of objects like line, arc, spline, polyline, ellipse arc, multiline, and any other lines. Before you want to find the dividing point, you need to generate the divided points object and then snap those points to draw.

Now, as long as you pass the cursor over an object mentioned above, you will see a green snap point at an accurate distance.
