Reading DXF Arcs into the point list

Top  Previous  Next

When you read in a DXF file to create a pointlist from entities inside it. you can choose whether or not to include free standing arcs and the maximum delta angle between points created from these arcs.

 

Arcs from polylines always create points, and the setting for max angle between points is set the same as for free standing arcs.

 

In both cases the things you have to look at are outlined in red in the Open Dxf File... dialog shown below:

 

Get-point-list-from-dxf-arc

 

If you enable polylines, and those Polylines have arc sections in them, or if you enable Arcs, then you need to set Max Arc Delta Degs. The smaller that value the more points will be placed in your point list.
