    Easily Remove Stacked Vertices


    PVA - Jim

    There are some instances where a polygon may have vertices that are stacked exactly on top of each other. This can lead to a number of issues in exporting to CNC machines, creating extrudes or other solid operations based on polygons with stacked vertices.

    (Moving it to the left reveals the second vertex beneath the first) 
     

    To resolve this, select the polygon or polyline and use Modify > Drafting Aids > Simplify Polys, in the first mode, Maximum Deviation, you can leave the setting at 0 and running the Simplify Polys operation will remove any perfectly stacked vertices without affecting the overall shape of the poly.
