Make Your Coverage Areas Have Sharp Corners in InfraWorks

August 30, 2013

I have had several calls on this issue.  If you have been using InfraWorks, you might have noticed that when creating coverage areas that they have rounded corners.  I have known how to fix this for a while now, BUT it was not a documented solution, so I was unable to let anyone know.

It is now documented.  If you want to know how to get nice, clean, square corners on your coverage areas, read about it here.
