How to conduct Boolean operation in a simpler way?


Recommended Posts

Hello, everybody! For conducting Boolean operation, I use Trim but I feel troublesome since many

selections have to be carried out. So I wonder are there some new way to simplify the process? Hope anyone could give me some advice. Thank you.

Start the TRIM command. Give the Enter key two quick taps. Now EVERYTHING in your drawing becomes an entity that can trim and at the same time be trimmed by another entity. Simple...quick...effective.


The boolean commands in AutoCAD work only on solids or regions.

ReMark, tahnk you for your advice. I know that Trim command can reach this but I have to convert the area surrounded by the polylines into region first. And also complicated selections. I hope such kind of tedious work can be get rid of.
