    Default Non-Coplanar polylines

    In AUTOCAD, I would like to JOIN two non-coplanar
    (drawn in different UCS) POLYLINES - how can I
    do it? I would like to use it as a path to EXTRUDE

    Welcome Uzmazain!
    While the two polylines are on the screen set the OSNAP to
    END points and start the 3DPOLY command. Click the
    existing points in order to create the new 3D polyline.
    When done you may delete the initial polylines.
    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.

    Another option would be to change the UCS to
    the plane through which you want to extrude
    and draw the Plines on that plane.
    If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist,
    it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform
    to the prevailing standard of nonconformity.

    The idea behind 3DPOLY lines is to avoid that.

    That's true, but it helps to understand the theory of setting & rotating the UCS.

    I agree. Its a big thing when you get a grip on rotating
    UCS especially when dealing with 3D objects. I'm a
    big fan when it comes to rotating the UCS.
