    Default How can I Join lines

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi there

    I created many lines, and joined them together nicely

    Now I have a closed complete 2D shape

    I want to extrude the shape, but...

    I think I need to join all the lines to become a single line first

    I can't find this command

    Any one knows how can I unite all the lines together

    Default Polyline Edit

    type PE for polyline edit then M to SELECT multiple lines, once you have selected all the lines press ENTER then you will get a set of options in the commandline, press J for the JOIN command.

    You can also use region, which makes the closed area a flat face so if you shade it the area will become solid. You can also use boundary and pick the middle of your (hopefully) closed line area. Pedit works too but I prefer region because I know when shaded what closed lines are solids and which are linework.

    jorge: Sounds like you don't know how to use the command or your geometry is messed up preventing it from working. Post the drawing. Someone here will take a look at it.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Autocad 2011 is pretty good software, it hardly seems fair to blame the software for what will almost certainly turn out to be UIE (user induced error).
    ReMark is right, no shortage of folks willing to help here on the forum.
    Try using the FLATTEN command before trying to join them, perhaps that will help.
    If you were having difficulty with JOIN in the PEDIT command, make sure that when you see the FUZZ DISTANCE prompt you hit ENTER, so that the command will complete.
    If you ignore that and ESCAPE, they will not be joined.

    Of course all of this joining of lines to extrude is unnecessary since r2007.
    You are right - it is a waste of time since it isn't needed.

    jorge seems to have been necromantically moved for sure, though he doesn't specifically state that he yearns to go 'full-figure'.
