Hi Folks-

There is a commercially available tool from CAD Design Software, CDS, which will take a drawing with lines having a width attribute and automatically convert them to polylines. In addition, touching lines will be automatically unioned together. There are other handy and useful features contained in their add-ons to AutoCAD. For more information, please contact:
