This routine creates all edges, regardless of their visibility status in the 3D face.

CAD Tip No. 4402, also from Kent Cooper, converts 3D faces to lines in AutoCAD. This routine is similar, except it converts 3D faces to 3D polylines. All edges, regardless of their visibility status in the 3D face, will be created using this routine. As Kent notes, since 3D faces can’t have arc segments or width, there’s no reason to not make the target entity 3D polylines, and by doing so, any “warp” in the source 3D face is preserved. It also avoids any need to realign the Coordinate System for any that are not in the current drawing plane. To get started, first load the LISP file, then run the command 3DF2PL.
