In today’s installment we are going to blow some stuff up!
In short, we are going to explode Text objects into native AutoCAD entities. (Lines connected together into polylines)
You might be wondering why anyone would ever want to explode Text. There are lots of reasons! We can extrude the text into 3D objects, we can carve the text out of a 3D object, we can use it in commands that do not support Text and many many more.
In today’s example, we will Explode some Text in Civil 3D and then export the exploded geometry back to InfraWorks to create street labels.
Check out the video below to see how it works.
