Approximate any curve into a 2D/3D polyline with straight line segments.

General Usage Instructions

Upon issuing the command syntax SM_SIMPLIFY at the Autodesk® AutoCAD® command-line, the user is prompted to select a curve for approximating.
After curve is selected, user will be prompted to specify a conversion accuracy from a range between 1 and 100. 1- gives the lowest result with the resulted polyline having a minimal quantity of points. You can increase the accuracy by making the resulted polyline closer to the initial curve. 100 - gives the best result of approximation, but the quantity of points will be enormous. For more details look through screenshots.
After this, user will be prompted to control whether the initial curve is erased once the approximating operation completes.
