    axlPolyFromDB, "line" objects and 15.x Reply

    Greetings,

    The documentation states that axlPolyFromDB will work with "path", "line" and "arc" objects, amongst others.

    Under 15.2 I can successfully obtain a poly from a cline/"path" object BUT cannot obtain a poly from a clineseg/"line" object.

    Try the following:
    capture a CLINE, name it cline_db
    capture a CLINESEG from CLINE, name it clineseg_db
    cline_poly = car( axlPolyFromDB( cline_db))  ; works for me
    clineseg_poly = car( axlPolyFromDB( clineseg_db)) ; does NOT work for me

    Can anyone verify this behavior?

    I'm whipping up a report that will detect etch that gets too close to pins.

    Thanks and have a great Friday,

    Works OK in 16.0. I vaguely remember problems in 15.2 that I raised several SRs for. Have you got the latest ISR?
    Cheers, Dave

    I've confirmed this behavior on an associates' box - axlPolyFromDB does not work under 15.2 for "line" or "arc" dbids but does work under 15.7 .

    Thx to all who responded.
