Trace as Internal Lines/Shapes

  1. Follow the indicated guideline below: 

    Main Menu ▶ 2D Pattern ▶ Trace

    2D Toolbar ▶  Trace

  2. Select the Baselines to be traced.

  3. Right click on the selected Baselines to access the pop-up menu.
    →The right click pop-up menu appears.

※ Note: 

  • To easily select a closed shape, double click on the Internal Line.

  • Click and drag to select multiple Internal Lines at once. All Internal Lines within the marquee box are selected.

  • Occasionally, Internal Lines may not be connected precisely when dxf files are imported into CLO from other 2D CAD programs. If the selected lines are less than 0.5mm apart, they are traced as a closed shape as they are recognized as adjacent lines. However, on the other hand, if the selected lines are more than 0.5mm apart, they are traced as individual Internal Lines as they are recognized as separate lines.
