LISP for cleaning intersections

LISP for cleaning intersections


Does anyone have a LISP or Script that will clean up intersections? Both linear and radius intersections. I have been constantly trimming and after a few hundred thousand clicks, I figure there has to be an easier way. I've also have tried using BPOLY command but it creates polylines on top of existing lines, which I then have to delete. I am just learning LISP so I'm not sure how to conquer this problem.

I run Vanilla ACAD 2002

Any help will be greatly appreciated


RE: LISP for cleaning intersections

I'm not entirely sure what you mean, but I will take a stab.  I'm assuming you are talking about lines? And you jsut need them to "clean up" as in intersect? The easiest way to do this would be to use the fillet command.  You dan set the radius to zero, so it is essentially just joind the two line at their intersection.  (This also works with the chmafer command)

Hope this is what you were looking for!

RE: LISP for cleaning intersections

try using the command OVERKILL.  It's not documented, but cleans up intersections, overlaps and multiple lines.
