View Full Version : Converting ABS entities to ACAD solids?
2005-01-06, 08:49 PM
Is there a command to convert ABS entities, i.e. ductwork, to ACAD solid entities. The reason I ask is if this will decrease the overall file size. I'm currently working with an increasingly large file and would like to keep the visual aspects without the attributes or anything else that would increase the overall size. Any input would be appreciated.

I have located a sollution. Went to the help menu, and found a tool called "convertto3dsolid". This is a pallet button that can be found in the Autodesk Architectural Desktop Stock Tools Catalog, under the Modeling Tools category. I was trying to convert the Aec Objects to solids because when scale is commanded, the machine locks up, so I didn't really know where the problem starts. My thought is that it had something to do with the attributes that are associated with each part of the ductwork. Reguardless, "converto3dsolid" worked to convert the objects into solids, but I did have some problems with certain parts like dampers, and mvparts. So I just completely got rid of them for now.
