Use this function to convert an arc (source) into 3D polyline with a series of straight lines (more break points). The curvature of the converted 3D polyline with the source can be controlled with the parameter Accuracy.

Run the function from the following locations:

MOUS_ICO Toolbar: Elevation Tools: Convert Arc to Straight Lines

MOUS_ICO Menu: Road > Elevation Tools > Convert Arc to Straight Lines

Command prompts for:
