    License Subscription Costs

    Has anyone on this forum started to get pushback from the money men regarding Autodesks move to subscriptions? We currently run mostly AutoCAD LT with a few copies of AEC pack from our Revit trial that never got downgraded. I went to the chairman to present Revit again as an option for moving the company forwards to now catch up with the rest of the industry and I got no further than the 5th slide (I started with the costings to avoid nasty shocks) and he shut the presentation down saying he isn't going to pay >£200k per year for software, up from £25k. Are any other companies looking at alternative CAD BIM software to Autodesk?
  2. Hello all, I am creating a parametric drawing and I've run across a problem. AutoCad lets you define reference parameters, a measurement from a driven object, but when i try to use those reference parameters in a function, I get an error. I'm not even using the reference parameter to drive another object, simply to calculate some ratio. Perhaps my syntax is wrong, or its just impossible to use a reference parameter in such a way? Any help would be much appreciated, Sami
  3. Basically, I want to select two objects, and have them displaced the same amount in opposite directions from a set point without having to do the offset command in the case that the distance may be an odd or unknown value. To summarize, I have two polylines and want to offset them away from eachother using either a typed in distance or a "point-to-point" distance like the current offset command.
  4. I have a line that crosses through multiple polygons. Is there a LISP to give me a count of how many polygons this line goes through?
  5. Hello Please I need help with my very very old lsp program. It has been made with my colleague in around 1998-1999. Now after a long time we need to edit it to add new block tags and make it count block we specify. We have been working on it almost a week but we really dont have a clue how to edit program after that time. I am asking for a help from some good programmer to help us solve this. All help is appreciated.

  6. Hi Everyone, We are having 25+ draftsmen in our company and we like to have software to track the time spend on the drawings. We use AutoCAD, Inventor, Solidworks and Revit. I saw many software but nothing is as expected. Does anyone suggest software for that? Also please let me know if there is any free or trial version to test before we buy it. Thanks
  7. Hello everyone, I'm in a trouble, im making my thesis plans in autocad 2012 version and i need to rescale my plans from 1:1 to 1:100 and 1:300. Thanks for your respond and help.

    AutoCAD - autolisp-HELP

    Hello. I am a student and I need your help. My task is to write a program in AutoLISP that draws parts but I have no idea how to do it. The program in the simplest version which is only possible - I know that for some of you it's a bit of a job, so if it was possible, I would ask for help. I will try to repay somehow . Greetings. Sorry for my English.
  9. We launched a new project with free CAD blocks drawings, you can download everything without registration for free. We have 14 categories, the project is constantly updated and new drawings are added. Also added a new category of 3D cars for Autocad for free too. Our site free cad blocks: https://acad-block.com/

    Automatic layout LISP

    Hello, I am interested in a LISP able to make overlapping sheets as layouts following a road alignment and overlap a fraction. Each sheet will have its own UCS or view orientation. You can see it from these videos: anyone knows one? Best regards, Daniel
  11. I want to ask you guys what your process is for checking your completed markups? I check my drawings once or twice to see if I picked up everything but it irritates me that when I send it to the engineer I always miss something tiny or something that wasn't marked up at all and I probably should have spotted it...need tips.

    proteinrun folder

    I'm not sure if this is limited to Civil 3D, or whether it applies to AutoCAD also. I'm starting to find that inside of user's %temp% folder, is a subfolder named "proteinrun", and inside this folder are tons of other folders, and inside each one of those, are more files and folders. On the few that I'm run across, there are thousands of files/folders sitting here, anywhere from 6-8 GB in total size. Ultimately, the files, when you finally drill your way to them, are .PNG files. I traced it back to Autodesk because of this KB article - which says it's related to Inventor, and that these files are deleted once Inventor closes. We are not using Inventor, and the files are not being deleted. I suppose it's possible that the files are not being deleted due to application crashing, but I was wondering if anyone else has run across this bloat?
  13. Hi, I have recently come up with an idea for a project. And to execute that idea i need to be able to read trough a DWG and perform calculations based on the dimensions of walls, windows, doors and stuff like that. Is there anyway i can save a dwg of a floor plan in some kind of text format so i can write a program that is able to read trough it and identify those elements and perform calculations based on those dimensions? Thank You.
  14. I have an A3 drafting sheet that i want to print out. For some reason i want the print out be be on an A4 paper. Is it okay to print an A3 Sheet on an A4 paper. How will it effect the drawing and the lettering? If not then what is the reason?
  15. Hello, I'm looking for some help in the task of making my plans less boring. I'd like to use some non - uniform hatches to obtain something similar to the attached image. https://images.adsttc.com/media/images/595d/1743/b22e/38d8/8b00/0036/slideshow/SAN_-_siteplan_-_rooftop.jpg?1499273017 The building probably has a gradient hatch, while the lawn, and the concrete plaza, what hatch did they use for it? Thanks in advance.
  16. Hello, I have this very helpful LSP that will add the current annotative scale and delete all other scales for any type of annotative object. Is it possible to modify this LSP so that all objects in the workspace can be selected and this same function can be run instad of doing each object one at a time? CH-ASC.LSP
  17. Hi, When I add an xref, let's say floor plans, to my drawing the xref brings in the xrefs in that drawing to my new drawing. I do not want this; nobody wants this. I want to just bring in the floor plans, not the drawings that I attached to the plans. So how do I just bring in just the actual drawing? I hope that makes sense. Hard to explain because there are drawings within drawings. It is driving me insane.
  18. Hello everyone, I'm facing a problem ... I have a lot of blocks in the air that need to be connected two by two with a certain polyline. I have a LISP code I've found on the net, I've modified the code, but the blocks do not fall vertically on polyline ... and I can not figure it out by doing the lisp code. I attached the dwg file and the lisp code for example ... I remain deeply grateful for helping:D Example code.dwg MY_snapToObj.lsp
  19. Hi All, I have an issue about dimension scaling and any tips on how to make them even in paper space so it looks clean and symmetrical for architects to read. There are some drawings i use in MVIEW that are so large that the dimension texts are small. And some that are small that are easily readable. How do i distribute all the dimension font to be even in Paperspace? Any tips are appreciated. Thanks!
  20. Hello everyone, I have to draw an adjustable frame (automatic) with a lisp code. The idea is simple (so I think)....I have a fixed point x, y (0, 900) where I need to insert the frame, but the frame must follow my last vertical line of color 8 I've attached a DWG file detailing my requests. I remain deeply grateful for any suggestion of code or income support.... My request.dwg
  21. Hello, is there a way to combine the move command with the M2P or FROM command modifiers using LISP? I would want these to be two separate commands. Ideally I would like to program F1 to do _m2p during an active line command and F2 to do from during an active line command... but I'll settle for a lisp that combines each with the move command since I'll be doing that most frequently. Thank you in advance! P.S. here is code that will draw a line starting at M2P.. sort of a start.
  22. Hi need help with a lisp routine to clean up architects drawings with the following. Unlock,Unfreeze & turn on all layers Burst Change all layers to bylayer Change all hatch’s to colour 254 and send to back Change all line weights to 0.18 Change all to Colour 8 Overkill Purge
