TML - Explode Lines

Blog Post created by Gary Lantaff on Jan 14, 2020

This macro will explode the selected lines into individual segments. Each segment can be converted into a new line or only break into new lines whenever the deflection angle between segments exceeds specified angle.

 

There is also an option to relayer the new linework based on where the exploded segment was in the original line. This option only applies if the original line was closed.

 

This is ideal for breaking up CAD and PDF cross-section data in preparation for conversion into 3D lines, which saves hours of painstaking work and makes selecting data easier and faster in the 3D View.
