I've enjoyed my time in Nashville this weekend...well except for the Tornado warning and all of those sirens going off. I would probably say Country music is not my first preference in the music world - but I've definitely gained a greater appreciation for it after visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Donnia Tabor-Hanson of AEC CAD Solutions told me that the architectural firm, Tuck Hinton, used AutoCAD and Revit. to design this very cool museum. The front looks like a piano - with the windows being laid out in 3's and 2's like a keyboard.
An AutoCAD 2010 Hip Tip on Converting Splines to Polylines
If you've ever needed your spline to take on the properties of a polyline I'm sure you've found that easier said than done. Thankfully - AutoCAD 2010 has added this very cool new option in SPLINEDIT and PEDIT that allow you to easily convert a spline into a polyline. You'll simply need to specify a precision value between 0 and 99...0 being less precise (looks pretty bad) and 99 being extremely precise. The default value of 10 has done a great job for me...the higher the number - the slower you could potentially go.
You'll also find that the PEDIT command lets you convert a spline into a polyline...hoorah! Just select the SPLINE and it will give you that familiar greeting of "Object selected is not a polyline, do you want to turn it into one"...and then it will ask you for the precision value.
