hello, someoneone recomended me this website, and told me i might beable to get some help on autolisp, my problem is im trying to draw the shape below at the angle shown, can some one show me how it can be done, or can some one give me any web site names, where i might beable to get infor for drawing a shape like the one below at the angle shown ??

2. hi elizabeth...do you want to do this in cad....or as a lisp routine?

3. We need more information. Do you want to prompt the user for the angle or is it a preset angle?

4. So why not draw it and then rotate it?

What's going on, is this some homework assignment?

5. i want to do this in autolisp, using line command e.g comaand&quot;line&quot;; p1 p2 p3 p4 p5, i need to draw it in autolisp exatctly as shown above, need it to pick a center point, and the radius, and to prompt it to draw at the angle thats shown in the pic below

6. Why not use the "polygon" command?

7. cant do it that way, we must do it in autolisp, becase we also need to add other things to it, like holes etc, i have done that, but i wanna draw the pentagon like shown above, do u know what coomand i can use to draw the pentagon like shown below ?

8. To elizabeth, rebbeca, Tim11,

Not sure if you are all students in the same class or multiple personalities

Since in the last lesson you were able to draw the pentagon, you need only a slight revision. Before (some of) you started drawing the pentagon at the top vertex, which is at an angle of 90 degrees (or pi/2). Now you just need to change your starting angle to reflect the counterclockwise rotation of "angle" shown in figure. So you could get the angle from user (with 'getangle'), add that to pi/2 for your starting angle. The angles to the other vertices are as before, 360/5 or 2*pi/5.

9. thanks its worked :-)
