Converts objects to
As you convert objects
to solid objects, you can specify whether the resulting object is
smooth or faceted.
The smoothness and number
of faces of the resulting surface are controlled by the
variable. Whereas the previous example shows a conversion to a smooth,
optimized surface, the following example shows a conversion to a
faceted surface in which the faces are not merged, or optimized.
CONVTOSURFACE command, you can convert the following objects into
Objects That Can Be Converted to 3D Surfaces
|Open, zero-width polylines with thickness
|Lines with thickness
|Arcs with thickness
|Planar 3D faces
objects converted to
You can select the objects
to convert before you start the command.
You can create surfaces
from 3D solids with curved faces, such as a cylinder, with the
DELOBJ system variable
controls whether the geometry used to create 3D objects is automatically
deleted when the new object is created or whether you are prompted
to delete the objects.
List of Prompts
The following prompt
- Select objects
Specifies one or more
objects to convert to surfaces.
If one or more objects
in the selection set are invalid for the command, you will be prompted again
to select objects.
