Hello, guys, im in need of serious help.

Im designing a steel chimney, and cant get round profiles to be "round"

 

Im adding custom round profile Ø1500x14mm, and it always displays as 16-sided polygon. Is there a way to increase round profile's smoothness in ASD? I've tried all autocad option relating to this, no luck.

 

Thanks.

Hello,

you can use the following commands:

Command: profslices

Select objects: all

Profile slices is 16

Enter new profile slices <16> :64 (value that can be divided by 4)

 

and in case of cuts between objects

 

Command: cutslices

Select objects: all

Cutting slices is 32

Enter new cutting slices <32> :128 (value that can be divided by 4)

 

Best regards,
