Creating lines using a center point of a polygon question

Discussion created by dbdx316 on Oct 15, 2012
Hello everyone,

I have been trying to do this for awhile without success: I want to end up with having a series of 9 lines that are 125 meters long that are spaced 75 meters apart. I have various polygon shapes and took the centroid of each polygon and have the coordinates. I want the center point of the center line to be that centroid (so meter 62.5 along the line).

How would it be possible to create that center line using the point as the center of that line and then replicate the line 4 times on each side of that line spaced 75 meters away?

Thank you for any advice.
