Summary

This command is used to convert a closed boundary rout path to a rout circle, within the current document.

Access

This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Rout » Convert Lines to Circle command from the main menus.

Use

After launching the command, you will be prompted to select a closed boundary. Simply position the cursor over part of the boundary for the rout path you wish to convert to a circle and click - the closed boundary rout path will be replaced by a circle, whose center point is defined as the center of a bounding rectangle that would enclose the closed boundary shape, and whose radius is defined by the horizontal distance from that center point to the edge of the bounding rectangle.

Continue converting further closed boundary rout paths to rout circles, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit.

Tips

  1. If the rout path is a closed boundary made up of line segments, these segments must first be joined before the command can be successfully used.
