Import DWG linework and create solid

Recommended Posts

HoneyDear,

 

Closed shapes will extrude to solids, so if you get the Join tool from the Line Editing tool row, select all, and click in the screen, then you should be well on your way to using these lines directly with only minimal additional cleanup.

 

Does that get you going in the right direction?

I have had a lot of experience with importing platt maps.  The process can be as simple as joining the lines which always seem to be broken in places.  However, it is important to check the SHOW DIRECTION box in your display palette.  All the lines need to be pointed in the same direction before you can do anything with them.

I had some luck joining individual segments one at a time or by shift-picking them so I had more control over what becomes a surface without getting any bad geometry.
