Convert Arc to Straight Lines
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.
The source can be arc/circle/polyline/spiral.
The line segments of the source will be intact (no additional break points).
If a line is selected as the source, it will be simply changed to 3D polyline.
The length of the sub-divided straight lines is determined by the radius/parameter (spiral) and accuracy.
The elevation of the converted 3D polyline will be the same as that of the source.
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:
Select a circle/arc/polyline:
Pick the source that is to be converted as 3D Polyline (program accepts only one entity).
Degree of accuracy <1.00>
Enter the accuracy number (a numeric value) that controls the closeness of the 3D polyline with that of the source.
