Free and Open Source Flatten – Convert 3D Polylines to 2D and Vice Versa

From the Autodesk App Store:

NEWS: All of my apps are open source now, you can find more details here: https://lexman42.github.io/LexmanCAD-Website/

Want to work with a 2D polyline but for some reason your drawing contains a 3D polyline instead?

Applying the "LCAD_FLATTEN" command to a 3D polyline will replace a 3D polyline with a 2D polyline.

The X and Y geometry will be preserved and the resulting 2D polyline will be placed at a user-specified elevation.

If you need to convert several 3D polylines within a drawing, multiple 3D polylines can be selected and "Flattened" at once.

From version 2.0 onwards, the reverse is also possible. Using the command "LCAD_RAISE" 2D polylines can be converted into 3D polylines.

Converting between 2D and 3D Polylines is but a click away!

Flatten 2.1 and above swaps between 3D and 2D definitions of
polylines containing spline-fit and curve-fit vertices easily.
