View Full Version : Imported DXF - million node points

06-24-2017, 04:36 PM
I imported a DXF file I was given, and it has a million (OK, so thats an exaggeration but doesn't seem by much) node points, all black. I removed the mane from the horse head and it has only a few node points like I'm used to.

So, couple of questions.

1. Is that many node points going to be an issue when I go to cut, will it increase cut time?

2. If it is an issue, what's the fastest way to get reduce the number of node points.

Here's a sample pic of the head and a closeup of a part of the head. In the first picture there are so many node points it creates a thick black line.

Aspire has a fit curves to selected vectors icon near the bottom of the drawing pane. That will reduce your node count like magic.
