Summary

Most objects to be joined must be located in the same plane. You can join objects in different planes if the source object is a spline or a 3D polyline. Each type of object has additional restrictions.

List of Prompts

The following prompts are displayed.

Select source object: Select a line, polyline, 3D polyline, arc, elliptical arc, spline, or helix

Depending on the source object selected, one of the following prompts is displayed:

Line

The line objects must be collinear (lying on the same infinite line), but can have gaps between them.

Polyline

The objects can be lines, polylines, or arcs. The objects cannot have gaps between them, and must lie on the same plane parallel to the UCS XY plane.

3D Polyline

The 3D polyline and other objects must be contiguous (lying end-to-end), but they can be lying in different planes. The resulting object is a single 3D polyline.

Arc

The arc objects must lie on the same imaginary circle, but can have gaps between them. The Close option converts the source arc into a circle.

NoteWhen joining two or more arcs, the arcs are joined counterclockwise beginning from the source object.
Elliptical Arc

The elliptical arcs must lie on the same ellipse, but can have gaps between them. The Close option closes the source elliptical arc into a complete ellipse.

NoteWhen joining two or more elliptical arcs, the elliptical arcs are joined counterclockwise beginning from the source object.
Spline

The spline and other objects must be contiguous (lying end-to-end), but they can be lying in different planes. The resulting object is a single spline.

Helix

The helix objects must be contiguous (lying end-to-end). The resulting object is a single spline.
