The attached dwg contains a polyline object that looks like an ellipse.

 

Can anyone tell me how this object was created?

They are the same.

LWpoly uses less memory, earlier version r12.... use heavyweight poly

 

Use CONVERTPOLY and select the one you like.

hello, patchy,

 

thanks for the reply

 

your object is labeled a "polyline" by AutoCAD,

whereas my object is labeled a "lwpolyline"

so they are not quite the same are they?
