To create a polygon
- Do one of the following to bring linework
into the current drawing:
- Attach the drawings containing the linework.
Query the linework into the current drawing.
- Open the drawing containing the linework.
- Import the linework from another file
- In the Create Topology - Select Topology dialog box:
- Under Topology Type,
click Polygon to indicate that you
want to create a polygon topology.
- Enter a Topology Name and Topology
Description for your new topology.
Names can contain letters,
numbers, and the underscore, hyphen, and dollar characters. Names
cannot include spaces.
- Click Next.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to
specify the objects to use to create the topology. You can also
have AutoCAD Map 3D create any missing nodes and centroids.
- In the Create Polygon Topology - Set Error Markers dialog box,
indicate whether to highlight and/or mark detected errors with blocks. AutoCAD Map 3D automatically
checks for Missing Centroids and Intersections.
Additionally, you can choose to have AutoCAD Map 3D check for Duplicate
Centroids, Incomplete Areas, and Sliver Polygons.
- To highlight errors with red Xs, select Highlight
- To mark errors with blocks of the shape
and color you specify, select Mark Errors With Blocks.
- In the Marker Size box,
specify the marker size as a percent of the screen size. A value
between 3% and 7% is usually suitable.
- If you chose the Mark
Errors With Blocks option, specify the shape and color
of the block to use to mark each error.
- Click Finish to
create the polygon topology.
To remove highlighting,
use the REDRAW, REGEN, or SAVE command. To remove an error marker,
select it and press Delete.
- If appropriate, save the topology information
back to source drawings.
