Irregular shapes of converted-to-SAFE-columns v.12.1.1

Irregular shapes of converted-to-SAFE-columns v.12.1.1

Irregular shapes of converted-to-SAFE-columns v.12.1.1

After importing File/Import/.DXF Architectural plan, the .dxf template appears OK but when trying to convert the polylines to corresponding SAFE elements the following happens:

- the shapes of the converted columns have nothing to do with the shapes of those from the imported .dxf drawing;

- walls with irregular shape do not convert;

Any idea why do these happen?

RE: Irregular shapes of converted-to-SAFE-columns v.12.1.1

You should try to open the column properties and check the dimensions of the column if its correct just click okay. I've encountered the same thing. Hope this simple solution works with your problem, though.

RE: Irregular shapes of converted-to-SAFE-columns v.12.1.1

every time I get those irregular shapes, directly I go to properties(dimensions) and remove the decimal fractions, as a result, I get them regular, for instance, if I get a column with 600,4533333 x 250,25487612 change to 600 x 250 , it's somehow gardening thing, I wish this could help,
