Apparent Intersection
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

To extend objects to their apparent intersection

  1. Click Tools tabMap Edit panelClean Up. At the Command prompt, enter mapclean.
  2. On the Select Actions page, in the Cleanup Actions list, click Apparent Intersection. Click Add.
  3. In the Select Actions list, click Apparent Intersection to display the cleanup parameters for this action.
  4. Under Cleanup Parameters, set the Tolerance to a value slightly higher than the radius of a circle that includes the endpoints of the objects and their projected intersection point. (Imagine a point where the objects would intersect if they extended along their natural paths).

    You can enter a value into the Tolerance box or click Pick to go to the map and select two points that define the tolerance to use.

    If AutoCAD Map 3D does not find an apparent intersection, try increasing the Tolerance value.

  5. Continue specifying Drawing Cleanup settings.
