    Default Making points selectable

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi Folks,

    I have got points from a GIS software into AutoCAD, the problem is that I am unable to draw a polyline between the points to get a distance between the points. Does someone have a lisp routine which can convert the points to make them selectable. I have attached the drawing I am working on for those of you who want to have a go at this one.

    Thanks in advance.

    Gday mate,

    I'm sorry I don't have the ability to access your DWG (no CAD on the PC I'm currently using).

    But is it not possible to snap the the POINTs using the NODE snap?

    These Points are in the default shape of a dot. Change the point shape as in this thread, and you can snap to them using the Node snap.

    No lisp is needed at this stage
