FLATTEN doesn't exists, and when I try FLASTSHOT it asks me for digits and I really don't know what to type.......the ultimate goal is to make all my lines "FLAT" since in top view they look good but in 3D perspective some are just way up and down(non-flat)
Solved! Go to Solution.
>> FLATTEN doesn't exists
What did you try? Put the word _FLATTEN in the command line, press <ENTER> and AutoCAD tells you that the command is not defined?
If so ==> you just have to install Express-Tools
If not so ==> please describe why you think "FLATTEN does not exist"

I have used <flatshot> alot
insert as a block and hit enter a few times. I have never entered in any numbers just took the default.
Yes, have you installed the express tools as suggested ( when you get the unknown command )
and FLATSHOT, for some reason is not selescting ALL of the lines, it only "flattens" what ever is a solid 3D, like my floor slabs........but I still have some lines that are in the z-axis
>> _FLATTEN Unknown command "FLATTEN". Press F1 for help
in this case:
>> If so ==> you just have to install Express-Tools
So start Windows control panel ==> programs and functions (or something similar) ==> AutoCAD ==> Add/Remove features
...and then you came to the installation-dialog, here you have the chance to make a check to "ExpressTools"

PS: sorry, I don't have an englisch operating system and also no english AutoCAD, so my description is using words of my translation! The may (and will) differ from the exact words.
where is that Express Tools for Autocad 2012? .... I saw few links about that express tools but were either broken links or for older versions of autocad, so I disregarded that option
