I exported an AI file from SolidWorks, which only exports lines. Nothing is filled. I'd like to get all the closed shapes to be filled, but I am running into problems when I try to set the "Fill" parameter.
My document looks like this
It imports as a "Group of 1 object," which I can ungroup into a single path of 640 nodes. While it's either grouped or ungrouped, changing the fill setting does nothing.
I can also break apart the paths, so I end up with 320 paths, but then each line segment is its own path and nothing is joined. Again, changing the fill doesn't do anything. Finally, I can combine an individual shape into a path (of 10 nodes), so each shape becomes a separate path object, but changing fill still does nothing.
Also, using the paint bucket to fill leaves some white space on the inside edge. It doesn't quite fill fully.
