Is there any tool in ArcGIS Pro, which could help me arrange objects to my desired distance?

As an example, to see you what I am trying to achieve. ( in example objects are in chaotic distances)

enter image description here

  • Distances to what? Also your shapes are irregularly?

  • Yeah, my shapes are irregulary (but thats other problem). Distance is between those objects (for example each objecto distance to another is 1 meter)

  • Why not create touching polygons and buffer them by -1 m?

    Probably not, but currently there could be some more specifications on your current data, your intended output, and the requirements to the process (e.g. keeping the attributes on the current features).

I would start over by create points along lines at an equal interval: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/editing/create-point-features-along-a-line.htm. I would use a distance that represents the distances between the centroids of the polygons you want. Then I would construct polygons from each of those points, considering a script like this: Generating polygons from centroids with rotation and dimensions.
