Can you post an image of what you are attempting to do? What have you tried so far? PEDIT?

 

What is PELLIPSE set to?

Hello

 

The file is uploaded, I am trying to get the trimmed ellipse to join the circle, but nothing is working.

 

Thanks for helping!

I just figured out, if I use an ellipse arc then the joining works.

 

BUT if there is another way I would like to learn it!!!

Just as I thought.

 

First, it appears all your ellipses are part of a block. You can't join an entity like an arc (part of a circle) to a block.

 

Second, you neglected to set the system variable PELLIPSE to a value of 1 (default is 0 ).

 

Third, you'll have to erase and recreate the block using the Array command, explode it, then use PEDIT > Multiple >Join to join the arc segments and all of the ellipses.

 

And that's all there is to it.

 

Of course you could just create one quadrant array it, explode the array, then PEDIT > Join it.

Remark - THANK YOU!!

 

How do I 'set the system variable PELLIPSE to a value of 1'?

 

What seemed to work that I JUST tries is edit the source of the array. Join the elements then save the edit. The whole unit became one! ;)

System variables can be set via the command line. Type PELLIPSE then hit the Enter key. Now change the setting.
