    Default Polyface-Mesh to 3D Solid?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Is there a way in ACAD 09 to turn a polyface-mesh into a solid?

    I'm trying to flatshot a pvc elbow, but it's a polyface-mesh and doesn't show up. Is there a quick way or am I going to have to model the elbow?

    Have you tried the CONVTOSOLID command?

    Maybe the F2S.lsp routine will work. It can be downloaded from this link.

    Don't use the M2S.lsp (mesh-to-solid) LISP routine found here at CT (AutoLISP Archive) as it doesn't work with polyface meshes (or so I believe).
