DWG File

Postby daibeer » Thu Oct 11, 2018 10:11 am

Hi,
When I load a DWG file into Aspire 8, ( its a dinosaur puzzle) the outline vectors are split into small sections. So I have to select one, select the next one and join vector with line. This will take a very long time to complete. Is there a way I can just select the whole vector drawing and do a mass join of the vectors. Thanks

Hi,
Did you try the "join open vectors" feature? Menu Edit> Join vectors or button with blue rounded rectangle with yellow nodes.
Unless you have important spaces between vectors, it should work fine. You may be able to select all vectors.
After that, don't forget to simplify your vectors with the "fit curves to selected vectors". Otherwise, you'll have zillions of nodes as curves are translated into very small sections in the dwg.
Best regards

Didier
