Smooth the edges of your contour lines for better visualization.
Sometimes, the imported contour polylines created, may appear to have "sharp edges". This is attributed to the contours being created based on the grid of elevation points that are imported. Therefore, the grid dictates the sharp contour edges.
Luckily, there is a solution that will smooth out your contour polylines, as present in the below tutorial.
Step 1: On the command prompt enter the PEDIT command.
Step 2: Select Multiple polylines, either by pressing "M" or by right-clicking and selecting it.
Step 3: Select the contour polylines.
Step 4: Finally, select the Spline feature of AutoCAD, either by pressing "S" or by right-clicking and selecting it.
The result will be the exact same terrain you have imported, with the edges of the contour polylines smoothed out.
Tip: When you generate your contour polylines through Plex-Earth 5, they will probably be inserted, as one object. In order to achieve smoothing it, you will firstly need to "Explode" the object, by typing the above-mentioned command on AutoCAD's Command Bar. This will instantly separate the polylines so that you can move on and follow the steps as described in the tutorial.
Finally, you will end up having the best possible visualization of Plex-Earth's 5 contour polylines, which will accompany perfectly your presentations. This will allow you, to make the greatest impressions, as in our field attention to details is a big plus, that will elevate your work to a higher level.
