I have several hundred dxf files. They are mostly rectangles with holes however some drawings have curved contours.

The holes in the parts have been developed as two arcs that touch.

Is there a command that could be scripted to bulk convert the two arcs into a single circle?

Further to this problem once the arcs are converted to holes, I need to increase the diameter of the circle by 1mm.

It could be possible to not convert the arcs and just increase the radius by 0.5mm as long as I am able to determine if the arc is inside the contour and not part of the contour.

Any suggestions as to where to start (or if this is something that can be achieved) would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Hello Daniel,

to "bulk" two arcs to circle use JOIN command.
To change the radius of arc, select it and change its property in Inspector. You can set the same radius for all selected arcs at once.
