Hello fellow AutoCAD users,
This is my first post on this forum and I represent 6 AutoCAD seats/users. Ok, so here it comes:
The 'PLINE' command allows the user to draw arc's in a polyline. Why on earth doesn't the '3DPOLY' allow arc's to be created?
I probably know the answer to this question, arc's are not 3d objects. But WHY doesn't Autodesk make the '3dpoly' command work like a proper 3d version of the 'pline' command?
This is just one of the many verry annoying things that makes me (and us) aware of the presumably presumptuous Autocad attitude. Autodesk, please keep investing in the AutoCAD software, because we won't ever switch to Inventor.
Thank you for the reply. CAD programmers have customised AutoCAD for us. What I'm trying to say is, it's weird that this isn't a standard AutoCAD function. Ofcourse we all know that AutoCAD isn't a true 3d application, but still Autodesk should keep improving their products. I'm not having the feeling that this is beeing done. We work in 2013 now, how long does a cooperation like Autodesk need to write a functional 3DPOLY command. Again, this is just one of many things that needs attention. Not to mention the blockeditor.
Am I bitching? :-)
.....how long does a cooperation like Autodesk need to write a functional 3DPOLY command.
If it hasn't happened in 30 years, it probably isn't going to happen anytime soon.
What do you need arcs in your 3D polylines for? Maybe there is another solution.
For example, we use them to define ground features (curbs, etc.) in the civil world, so we use feature lines in Civil 3D, which do allow for 3D arcs.
We all b.... once or more.
Many commnands were taken out when we need them (3dsout, shrinkwrap......)
and new features added in just to make people mad (2012 array)
if we are lucky we would have it back or you will get answer like "MOVE TO INVENTOR"
