3D drawing modification

We are trying to cut an area out of a 3D drawing.....of contours.

AutoCAD is not liking this.

Can you please tell us if there is an easy way of doing this without AutoCAD hanging.

It needs to stay in 3D.

>> ....of contours

Are the geometry "contours" 2D-polylines or 3D-polylines or LW-polylines or lines or arcs or what type of geometry are these?


>> to cut an area

How is this area defined? Is it planar to world-coordinate-system or how is "area" defined?


If the command _TRIM does not help (estamated that you have only planar objects) then upload a drawing, that's the best way for us to see what you have, then we can give suggestions of how-to-do.

Hello they were 3D polylines but we dont have the problem now.

It is being done by some other programme.
