    Mathematically even Box divisions? How?

    So, let's consider a non-square flat Box.

    Suppose you want one dimension of this rectangular plane to have n divisions.

    You would also like the other dimension to have the appropriate #of divisions such that the divisions themselves are square.

    Is the best way to approach this to make one square, then ARRAY and then MERGE POINTS, MERGE POLYS?

    Obviously the prob. with this is it's not very interactive.

    My brain math is so bad, but wouldn't it be as simple as dividing the length of the long side by the number of divisions to get the length of a division, then dividing the length of the short side by the length of a division to get the number of divisions needed on the short side?

    Let's find out...

    A rectangle is 6 units long by 4 units high

    divide the 6 unit side to get 10 divisions

    each division is 0.6 units long

    divide the 4-unit short side by division length of 0.6 = 6.6666

    give the short side 6.6666 divisions

    divisions should be square, yes?
