Corrects inaccuracies in your drawings, such as small gaps between lines or near vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines.
Accessing the Command
Ribbon Tab | Panel: Manage | Drawing Optimizations
Displays a dialog box:
Do the following:
- Select the lines to be processed, optionally choose Entire Drawing.
- Select the desired options.
- Adjust the tolerances.
- Click the Apply button.
Click the Keep Selection button to leave the command without optimizing, but with keeping the highlighted lines selected. This option allows you to select suboptimal lines in a drawing.
XX lines optimized
|Select lines in drawing||Click the arrow button to select entities in the drawing.|
|Entire drawing||Processes the entire drawing.|
|Close gaps||Closes gaps between collinear lines that are smaller than the gap tolerance.|
|Horizontal||Corrects near horizontal lines according to the angle tolerance.|
|Vertical||Corrects near vertical lines according to the angle tolerance.|
|Diagonal||Corrects near 45° lines according to the angle tolerance.|
|Live feedback||Highlights the lines which match the selected options.|
Sets the angle tolerance in degrees, with respect to the World Coordinate System (WCS).
Near horizontal, vertical or diagonal lines within this angle tolerance will be optimized.
Sets the distance tolerance.*
Parallel Lines within this distance will be merged.
Sets the rounding tolerance.*
The calculated coordinates of the start- and endpoints will be rounded to the closest multiple of the rounding tolerance.
Sets the gap tolerance.*
Gaps between collinear lines within the gap tolerance will be filled.
* Expressed in insertion units (see the INSUNITS system variable).
Overkill - Deletes duplicate entities and overlapping lines, arcs, and polylines, and unifies partly overlapping or contiguous ones; optionally moves duplicates to a dedicated layer.
Combines duplicate blocks; optionally purges duplicate block definitions.
Join - joins lines, LW polylines, 2D polylines, 3D polylines, circular arcs, elliptical arcs, splines and helixes at their common endpoints..
Purge - removes unused named entities from drawings, such as unused layers and line types.
