FS#683 - Convert Spline to Polyline tool

To have a tool that could convert splines to polylines would be useful, particularly for laser cutting work where a nice steady flow is needed, otherwise you can get an erratic ‘jumpy’ movement when cutting..
Maybe a ‘two’ step procedure;
1.First convert to arc/line segments.
2. Then if needed convert to a continuous polyline.

1. Select spline
2. Modify - Explode
- The spline is converted ('exploded') into a polyline with line segments.

If loose line entities are desired, explode the polyline again.

Yes of course it works, must be day dreaming here.

thanks Andrew
