  • $\begingroup$ @Nate_Sycro27 I want to put a dashed straight line on the one face of a cube. $\endgroup$ – Mikhail Nono Jan 29 at 11:55

Just for fun, you can use a simple plane with the Array modifier :).

You can create a long cylinder.

Under Edit mode, insert several "loop cuts" to the side of the cylinder; with "face select" activated, you press "a" once or twice to select all faces.

Press "space" and write "checker deselect".

At this time, you have 2 options, assign a transparent material to these faces, or you just delete them (I would go for the transparent material, so you get a single object all connected).

    $\begingroup$ I just remembered another way. You do a small cylinder. Rotate it on the direction you want. Using the "array modifier", you have control on the spacing between cylinders (dashes) and the array length will be the length you need to your final line, $\endgroup$ – MCunha Feb 29 at 16:26

You can do this by using Blender's knife tool. In edit mode, select the knife tool, and LMB to start. Then drag the line to the opposite corner of the cube. LMB again, and then press 'enter'. You have a new diagonal line now on the cube.

    $\begingroup$ I need to draw a vertical or horizontal line. It should look like [ | ] or [-]. The line should consist of the small lines like "- - - - - - - -". $\endgroup$ – Mikhail Nono Jan 29 at 13:36
