TL Polyline Smoother

TL Polyline Smoother

Win32 and 64, English

Todor Latev
Generates successive polyline approximations of lwpolyline objects to smooth out the original shape but keep the overall polyline trend.

General Usage Instructions

Launch the program from ribbon/Add-In tab or using command TLPolylineSmoother.

Select a lwpolyline object and press Enter. Optionally adjust the values of the user settings: Number of iterations and Intermediate polylines.

A smoother version of the original polyline will be generated. The original polyline object will not be modified in any way.

The last generated polyline is stored internally so you may skip the object selection step upon subsequent command invocations.

Settings:

Iterations: Controls the number of times the algorithms are applied, initially to the original polyline, then the resulting polyline is used as an input to the next iteration and so on.

Draw intermediate polylines: generate a polyline for each iteration.
