Program Description

As the title implies, this program enables the user to create circular wipeouts in the drawing.

The program offers two commands: cwipe allows the user to specify a center & radius and will construct a circular wipeout from these parameters, with all properties (such as Layer, Linetype, Lineweight etc.) inherited from the current settings in AutoCAD when the program is run; c2wipe will allow the user to convert a selection of circle objects to circular wipeouts, with the wipeouts matching all properties of the original circles.

The circular appearance is achieved by generating a polygonal wipeout with a number of points located a given distance from the center. The number of points used to approximate the circle may be altered at the top of the code; the current accuracy is set to 50.

The program should perform successfully in all UCS & Views and on all full versions of AutoCAD which support the use of a wipeout object.
