MOve all o2D objects to a zero z value?
« on: February 10, 2015, 12:55:15 pm »
I have found this huge thread.  http://www.theswamp.org/index.php?topic=18225.msg222505;topicseen#msg222505

What is the best way of moving many curves from different z values to z value of zero?  WE do not use Autocad much here.  So I need to have a program that will do this for me.  I have not used it for a Couple years.

Thanks

What are you trying to accomplish? or Why do you need (whatever) flattened to zero? I can think of several differing methods but they are all dependent on one thing or another and will all affect something else. At the least I suggest making a back up file (I know, "duh"). You might also consider getting 2D data from a 3D file without destroying the 3D integrity, if that is possible for what you need, such as by using a viewport. That said, there is probably a better solution here than what I can offer anyway. Good luck!  :-)

We got a drawing from a supplier that is sorta 2D.  We need to make some extensive 2D edits with trim extend for example but since the curves are not on the same 2D plane the lines and curves will not trim.  Then we need to send the file back to supplier for discussions.

Just use the FLATTEN command and be done with it


USE QSELECT to select all curves and whack them onto the same plane...
