Win32 and 64, English

CAD Design Software
Fill closed polyline boundaries using a specific polyline width instead of a Hatch pattern.

General Usage Instructions

This Polyline Fill program will only support CLOSED-Polyline Boundaries. To check if a boundary is closed, use the LIST command and select the polyline boundary shape.


If object shows Closed, then this will be supported. If object shows Open, then you will need to Close the boundary Before using FillBoundary. Use the PEDIT command and pick the shape and 'Close'. Use the LIST command again to confirm now closed.


Open the command to select one of the four types of fill to use.


Use the Fill on Object's Layer to create the polyline fill on the selected object(s) layer or select another existing layer in the drawing to use. You may also create a new layer to be used.


Set the Options for Width of the polylines that will be created for the fill, overlap distance and an Angle (or accept default 0 angle). If the Fill Boundary is selected, the Fill percentage is available to control the percentage of the area to be covered by polylines.


Optional settings include; Sharpen Corners to include progressively smaller polylines at corners and Delete Original Edge to remove existing boundary after Fill routine.


Pick the OK button and a PROMPT will appear to select objects (or boundary within a block). Select the object(s) to process or pick the containing boundary outline and then press <Enter> to run.


NOTE: If experimenting with values, it is recommended to use the UNDO command and set a Mark. This will allow you to run the command and use the UNDO>Back to return to the Mark made before running.
