Creating Centroids for Polygons
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
 
 
 

If you have polygon objects or closed polylines with data attached to them, you can create centroids and move the data to the centroid. This is useful:

Object data attached to closed polylines (top) and object data moved to centroids (bottom).

AutoCAD Map 3D checks that the lines do not intersect each other, and that the area is greater than 0. It then creates a centroid inside each selected polygon or closed polyline and moves any object data or SQL link data to the centroid. For an object shaped like a figure eight, AutoCAD Map 3D creates one centroid.

Centroids are created with a Z value of 0.
