Automatic Join Polyline onto existing Polyline ??

Recommended Posts

Leave Me Here

Hi,

 

Is there any way at all to draw a new polyline - from the endpoint of another polyline, and have it automatically join as one polyline from the existing section??

 

I know this can be done via PEDIT, but its so laborious and soo many clicks, and I have alot of segmented Polylines that I need to consolidate when I draft.

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Matt

Have you tried Fillet to join Polylines - two clicks and it is done (but click on the polyline first) :D

I also use the command Join with a large-ish fuzz-factor. Its not what you are asking for, I don't know how to do that (it would be awesome if it could work), but its a simpler workaround than PEdit

if you are using the full version can use a lisp function that does what you want

Will you be updating to 2012 anytime soon?

 

You can extend plines by hovering over and clicking on add vertex.

Here is a quick and dirty lisp routine. No error checking......sorry, don't have time to pretty it up.

Pick the existing polyline near the endpoint where you want to start drawing the new segments.

 

(defun c:pline2 ( / ent pt1)
 (setq ent (entsel))
 (setq pt1 (osnap (last ent) "end"))
 (command "._pline" pt1)
 (while (eq 1 (logand 1 (getvar "cmdactive")))
   (command pause)
 )
 (command "._pedit" (car ent) "_J" (entlast) "" "")
)

You can do that in 2011 also.

Hey, this is Awesome! I've always only used Fillet to round corners!! The downside of being self-taught eh. This is great though, Thanks!
