I wish to make a script to define the length of a line.

Knowing the deltaX, deltaY and hypotenuse of a line, how can i, giving the new lenght (hypotenuse), found the new deltaX and deltaY?

Thank you very much!!!

Find the ratio between the old hypotenuse and the new. (new/old)

Then multiply the deltax and deltay values by this.

This increases all of the values proportionally.

eg:

old hyp: 5

old dx: 4

old dy: 3

new hyp: 10

ratio = 10/5=2

new dx = 2*4=8
dew dy= 2*3 = 6

Thank you very much!!!

p.s. very clever solution!!

No problem. It works in three dimensions as well, just do the same to dz.
