Does anyone have a curve fit routine they could share?

i.e. one that would apply best fit lines and arcs to a segmented polyline?

Thanks!

Hi,

 

if you don't describe what you want to have exactly most of us will think of "use the PEDIT-command".

So you should describe what you want to have in another way, or at least why you can't use PEDIT. Let us see some samples what AutoCAD does and what you want to have instead.

By chance, do want to create a LWPOLYLINE

from a random collection of ARCs and LINEs,

without manually selecting each entity in the correct order?

I get exactly what you mean, and I have not seen code for that so far.

You would have to loop through the points, and test is the "trend" of a line is happening, or that of an arc.

The user would have to specify some tolerances for accuracy and shortest line allowed. You would not want a ton of short lines as the result.

Planners would need this to convert hand drawn lines to street centerlines or curbs.

Its not trivial, and would involve some artistic thinking.

I'll see what I can find. Its a bit similar to weeding routines I have done, they are not linear, but look back and forth to see if criteria is met when doing things.

Interesting.  I know I had a 3rd party routine years ago, but it worked outside of Autocad, and involved creating dxf files, importing, exporting etc.....

I would love to try to write something too, just too slamed right now, can't believe there isn't something already floating around for this.  You would think this would be some standard command in Autocad by now. :smileyhappy:
