2,001 downloadsTotalBoundary (Pro) is a professional plugin for generating 2D outline drawings of various degrees of complexity with AutoCAD®. The outline drawings it creates are closed polylines marking the boundaries of various types of objects, which can include elementary entities (lines and arcs) as well as complex blocks and curves (ellipses and splines). What sets the TotalBoundary (Pro) utility apart from AutoCAD's built-in tools (such as BOUNDARY, BPOLY) and from other third-party programs is its high productivity and stability, and also the quality of the outlines it generates. The inbuilt algorithm for detecting spacing (gaps) between neighboring objects allows users to create enclosed outline polylines with exceptional accuracy. The program can process tens of thousands of objects extremely efficiently (in a matter of seconds), flawlessly generating highly complex outline polylines in the selected drawings. Key features: The program's powerful engine allows it to build enclosed polylines rapidly along the perimeter of selected drawing fragments. The original drawing needs no advance preparation (removing superfluous unconnected lines, creating an additional enclosed boundary polyline around the original drawing fragment). When the program creates an outline, it automatically identifies and removes gaps in places where primitives meet. The maximum size of these gaps can be set directly by the user. The program replaces splines and ellipses used in defining an outline with true polylines created by means of piecewise linear approximation. The user can also easily set the thickness and color of the polylines the program generates, if required. The program offers an automatic filling (solid hatching) option for the outlines it generates.

1,892 downloadsAutoCAD users often have to deal with the BOUNDARY (BPOLY) command, which allows creating boundaries (mostly enclosed polylines) from existing objects forming an enclosed area around the point specified. Unfortunately, its performance as well as the quality and the accuracy of the boundaries (contours) created when run in complex drawings leaves much to be desired. To eliminate these common drawbacks of the standard BOUNDARY command, a project called "SuperBoundary" was implemented. While BOUNDARY command generates simple contours quite efficiently in relatively simple drawings with a small number of objects on screen, SuperBoundary is intended to provide the user with comfortable workflow in drawings of any complexity. In other words, SuperBoundary is the utility based on the BOUNDARY concept supplemented by super-speed and some super-features. Key features: High performance. A powerful program engine allows analyzing and generating thousands of boundaries in seconds. High accuracy. When generating a boundary, all elements larger than the specified tolerance factor are considered. The possibility to create boundaries in areas having significant gaps between adjacent objects. The possibility to quickly detect and generate all the enclosed areas in the selected drawing or its part. Easy and accurate external outlines generation in complex drawings. Polylines generation from spline- and ellipse-based boundaries using piecewise-linear approximation Flexible adjustment of the boundaries generated. These are width, color and layer. Simple and convenient installation with classic installer. List of commands: _SBND - launch the app in classic mode _SBND_PICK - for quick usage in "pick point" mode _SBND_ALL - for quick usage in "build all" mode _SBND_CONFIG - for export / import current settings data as an external INI file
toxicsquall posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLGood morning, I have a big problem: I need to make an outline of which was advanced on a road. But I'm doing this activity manually. I tried to use the OVERKILL, but it only deletes the 3dpolylines/polylines that are overlapping and not both. I need only what is different between them and make a REGION or a Closed Polyline of the result. Can you help me? Is there any lisp or a command that can make this? I'm sending the attached file of what I want in order to make an example. Example.dwg
Hi Everyone, I am new to AutoCAD and have just finished using AutoCAD Plant 3D to model a basic plant for my 4th year chemical engineering design project. However, every shape I have drawn has a white outline around all the edges. Is there a way to remove this so I can take a screenshot for my report. Thanks, Luke
On "TEXTFILL", Help says: Controls the filling of TrueType fonts while plotting and rendering. 0 Displays text as outlines 1 Displays text as filled images Q1) It doesn't affect the text visible onmonitor? Does it? I was expecting to see the result in Print Preview or Print to PDF before plotting to paper but I couldn't. Does it mean there is somthing wrong or still it will be OK if I plot to paper? Q2) It is only for TrueType fonts so it doesn't affect other fonts (what other fonts could be? because all fonts in my ACAD are TT)
CraneGuy posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHi. I use wipeouts a lot. Is there any way to automatically create an outline around a block that can be converted to a wipeout? Some of our blocks are complex, and it takes a fair amount of time to create. Thanks in advance!
