Never having used a cad program other than archicad, it has taken me a while to warm up to the polyline.

Now, I use it for
-cut lines as the end pieces can be easily stretched and the rest stays together; I keep them in my templates especially details
- and other items that I can advantage of them staying in a sense 'grouped' because I drew them with a polyline rather than a multi-segmented regular line. The pieces stay together even when I have the group feature suspended.

More and more I find it quite useful.

For what other purposes have y'all found it useful?

ArchiForma ...


I know of ArchiForna, Djordie, I was talking about ArchiCAD! I think any CAD application nowadays which has polyline would have a 3d version of it too!

For example in Max there are no difference between 2d and 3d polylines and lines!

Anyway, the ArchiForma polyline and 3d polyline are too rough to use. I still swith to Max or Autocad when I need to use any.

So in AC23 Trim works for a polyline, but we are still waiting for the Extend. We can edit, and joint with other polylines but still can't extend. If there is a way to extend I haven't found it.

I avoid using lines, hate them! Polylines are grouped by design.

Another wish waiting for 15 years to happen.
