I have this Gardian brick hatch that someone was kind enough to create for me but it is for 3 courses in 8 inches. How do I convert this to 2 courses in 8 inches? I tried making some assumptions but could not get it to work correctly.

003=0,0,90,256,170,0,512,85,-255
004=0,0,90,384,255,0,512,85,-255
005=0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 85

you'll need to change it, one less segment.
The numbers represent 1/32", except the 1st two are angles, 0 deg, 90 deg.
delete the 384 line.
Change the 85 (which = 8"*32/3) and change to 128 (4"*32)
the 170 should change to 256

I think that should get you closer.

I tried that and it is still on 3 courses per 8 inches rather than 2 courses per 8". The horizontal spacing is ok at 1'-4" so I just have to get the vertical spacing adjusted. Thanks for your help on this.

Gary....
Try this.


[Header]
Scale=32
Angle=0
Display Scale=10
Segments=2

[Segments]
001=0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 4
002=0, 0, 90, 0, 0, 4, 8, 4, -4

I hope that it is what you need.
