Convert wall to lines

Recommended Posts

In VW 2010 is there a way to convert a basic 5" wide wall with no fill into two lines without deleting doors and windows. When I ungroup the wall it makes a centerline and a filled polyline. I don't want either of these to appear. I just want the two basic lines. Is that possible?

-Select the walls.

-Ungroup. Lines, polygons, doors, windows remain selected.

-Shift click on the doors and windows to deselect them and leave the ungrouped geometry selected.

-Modify>Convert>Convert to Lines (hidden line rendering).

-On my machine this leaves the (invisible) center lines w/ a pen weight of none.

-Use the Select Similar Tool w/ the preferences set to all the Pen Attributes options and delete the invisible center lines.

Or try the polygon tool:

8 > From inner boundary mode> click within the space

From outer boundary mode> Encircle the walls

Select both polygons > Clip Surface, Delete.
