TotalBoundary (Pro) is a plugin for professional creating outlines of complex drawings in Autodesk® AutoCAD® software. The app draws an enclosed polyline around the outside of selected objects, which can include elementary entities (lines and arcs) as well as complex blocks and curves (ellipses and splines). In addition, the polyline can be supplemented with a masking object (wipeout) that hides the inner objects of the outline. And also in the place of outlines the program can create solid filled shapes (this option is activated in the program settings).
The inbuilt algorithm for detecting spacing (gaps) between neighboring objects allows users to create enclosed outline polylines with exceptional accuracy. The program can process tens of thousands of objects extremely efficiently, flawlessly generating highly complex outline polylines in the selected drawings.
The full list of objects that the program supports consists of:
- The program's powerful engine allows it to build enclosed polylines rapidly along the perimeter of selected drawing fragments.
- The original drawing needs no advance preparation (removing superfluous unconnected lines, creating an additional enclosed boundary polyline around the original drawing fragment).
- When the program creates an outline, it automatically identifies and removes gaps in places where primitives meet. The maximum size of these gaps can be set directly by the user.
- The program replaces splines and ellipses used in defining an outline with true polylines created by means of piecewise linear approximation.
- The user can also easily set the thickness and color of the polylines the program generates, if required.
- The program offers an automatic filling (solid hatching) option for the outlines it generates.
