How about your drawing limit?You should first "zoom all".The best way will be "z" enter ".5x" enter or as you like (eg..75x,.25x, ....x ...etc) to repeat to your best clear.Do you want to know dxf for what programs?

Autocad cheats on circles and arcs it actualy draws a series of straights to represent a curve graphically hence the trade off is speed in redrawing graphically.


The Viewres sets the increment of number of straights, mathmaticly the object is a true circle. faster zooms lower Viewres, more accurate circles = slower zooms.
