# How do I convert an arc to a polyline in AutoCAD?

Type “Y” on the command line, and press “Enter” to turn the arc into a polyline.

Considering this, how do I turn an arc into a polyline?

Correspondingly, how do you convert lines and arcs to polylines? Use the command MPEDIT from Express Tools to convert multiple (selected) lines and arcs (even non-contiguous) to drawing objects of the type 2D polyline. During the conversion, you can also set properties – e.g. linetype or linewidth.

Frequent question, how do you break an arc in AutoCAD? You can use this Lisp to perform 2 Commands. DIVCUT : Which cuts the selected object equally to the number of segments you want. MESCUT : Which cuts the selected object equally with a given length. While one could use MEASURE, they would have to calculate the desired length of the segments first.

Similarly, can you convert circle to polyline? Transform a Circle into Polyline using Break Command Draw a Circle with the desired Radius/Diameter. Type on Command Line BREAK to trigger the Break command. AutoCAD will prompt to Select object, click on the circle once to select it. Now, click again somewhere on the Circle to Specify second break point.I have a known radius so I prefer to create the polyline with start point, arc, radius [enter radius], at this point there is an option to change direction by holder the Ctrl Key.
