DELOBJ
 
 
 
Quick Reference
Type: Integer
Saved in: Registry
Initial value: 3

Controls whether geometry used to create 3D objects is retained or deleted.

If the SURFACEASSOCIATIVITY system variable is set to 1, the DELOBJ setting is ignored.

0

All defining geometry is retained.

1

Deletes profile curves, including those used with the EXTRUDE, SWEEP, REVOLVE, and LOFT commands. Removes all defining geometry for CONVTOSOLID, CONVTOSURFACE, CONVTONURBS, and CONVTOMESH commands. Cross sections used with the LOFT command are also deleted.

2

Deletes all defining geometry, including paths and guide curves used with the SWEEP and LOFT commands.

3 Deletes all defining geometry, including paths and guide curves used with the SWEEP and LOFT commands if the action results in a solid object. Removes all defining geometry for CONVTOSOLID, CONVTOSURFACE, CONVTONURBS, and CONVTOMESH commands.

-1

Displays prompts to delete profile curves, including those used with the EXTRUDE, SWEEP, REVOLVE, and LOFT commands. Prompts to remove cross sections used with the LOFT command.

The original geometry for CONVTOSOLID, CONVTOSURFACE, and CONVTOMESH commands is removed without prompting.

-2

Displays prompts to delete all defining geometry, including paths and guide curves used with the SWEEP and LOFT commands.

The original geometry for CONVTOSOLID, CONVTOSURFACE, and CONTOMESH commands is removed without prompting.

-3 Displays prompts to delete all defining geometry if the resulting entities are a surface of any type. Deletes all original geometry resulting in a solid entity, original geometry for CONVTOSOLID, CONVTOSURFACE, CONVTONURBS, and CONVTOMESH commands is removed without prompting
