Problem with very small gaps

Hello,



Our company often gets drawings delivered by customers. (Can'nt attach file; will mail for excample). These drawings look good, but the line isn't closed. Is there a way to quick locate those small gaps and close them?



Greetings and thanks in advance for your answers.

You can try the 'join' command.

you can explode and join using pedit or use a fillet set to zero. are you trying to hatch in these? or why do you need to fix these errors?

I can't think of a way to locate these at all. I doubt there is really.

The BOUNDARY command may be helpfull, it ignores small gaps.

what is the command for hatches so that you can skip gaps? I can't remember where the setting is. His example the bounday didn't work.

That's right, drawings are often imported out of graphical design
programs
