I feel like this should be pretty simple, but haven't been able to figure out how to do it. I want to create lines at equal spacing within a polygon. The attached image shows an example - to do this I created a square polygon, placed points every 1000m, and manually drew lines to connect them at a diagonal pattern. Hopefully there's an automated way to do this within GIS Pro to eliminate any errors made when playing "connect the dots". I appreciate any help!

I wonder if generating a triangle or diamond tessalation and removing/clipping the lines or portions you don't want would be faster

Generate Tessellation (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

If there was a pattern to how you generated the points then you could have used the  xy to line tool
