    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Is there a short cut or an easier way of converting multiple close geometric shape drawings into polyline.

    Easier than what? Are you using the PEDIT command to Join single line segments into one continuous polyline?

    Using PEDIT is the only way I know of.

    Sometimes the BOUNDARY command may expedite the process, depending on what the geometry is.

    The same you can try the BPOLY command.
    It's nice to be nice, but sometimes is nicer to be evil!
    Tip: Please do not PM or email me with CAD questions - use the forums, you'll get an answer sooner.

    Dear Sir,

    i have attached file and as you can see on the left there is a simple drawing but before the cutting process i have first make a boundary of all 60 pieces then i have to give external offset (half diameter of the cutting knife) one by one . i have used your multiple offset lisp command for external offset "pof1" and it works perfect. So is there any solution to make multiple boundary in one shot instead of selecting every these 60 holes one by one?

    Best Regards
    Attached Files
