Exporting

Just wondering if anyone could tell me the difference between polyline and polyarc when exporting a file? Thanks

I don't know the exact difference but, I use Polyarcs for files consisting mainly of curved lines, or Polyline for files with mainly straight lines.
They differance is how they convert curve information. PolyArc will generally produce less nodes.

Guess I need to google it?

Here is a good video that explains a little about the difference. His explanation is about the 7:30 mark. You should export as polyarc. Torchmate CAD/CAM: Curving text and a little more alignment tool
