  1. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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?

    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
  6. When I place a polyline with a global width of 4" on my site plan toolpallete, I set up the button by dragging the line over to it. Then, when I try to use the button it has a width of 0", which is not what I had dragged over to the toolbar to create the button. This also happens with my MLeaders on the toolbar. I tried setting the right side leader alignment to the middle of bottom row, which is standard for most leaders. I'm not sure why but when I update the toolpallete by dragging over the leader, it does not maintain this changed property. Not sure what's going on with it. Any ideas?
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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!
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. Anyone know of a .lsp that can rename some text in a dynamic block similar to tcount? I have data racks in a line and they're all dynamic blocks with the default "XX" in the middle. I was wondering if there is a lsp to automate this similar to tcount? example (all dynamic blocks with text in the center - as part of the block itself):
  15. Hello, I'm trying to create a command line for a tool bar button that will create mtext but middle justify it using "J" and "MC" inside the mtext command. Anyone know how to do that?
  16. 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
  17. When I enter a command quickly, it will sometimes duplicate my input into the command line. Example: after selecting, if I press "m" for move, and quickly follow it with spacebar to confirm, I will be prompted to enter a base point. Sometimes, it will input an "m" in the command line in the place where I'm supposed to enter the point. I then have to backspace it before I can pick a point. This is happening with other commands too. If I type "line" then follow the last letter quickly with a spacebar (or enter), it will ask me for the line startpoint, with the prompt immediately followed by "e" (which is the most recently input character). It seems to happen more often if I have something already selected, and I have only seen it happen when a command is requesting a point. It isn't reliable, meaning it doesn't happen every time for any command. I thought it was a problem with the keyboard because it recently had liquid spilled on it, but I tried plugging another one in and it also acted exactly the same. It's a new problem that I've never seen before today. I can't get it to happen in any other programs, so I don't think it's my input. It also happens when I open a new drawing. It doesn't happen, however, on any other computers here, only mine. I thought it might be a LISP interaction, but it continued even after disabling all custom routines. Despite being a minor issue, it's slowing me down dramatically. For reference, I've attached an image of what's happening. I didn't enter the "c" in the command line, except previously when entering "sc". Has anybody ever had this happen before, and do you know of a possible cause/solution?
  18. Hi All, I have a point cloud taken with a Drone and ported to an RCP file via Recap. Whilst I can import and crop the point cloud in AutoCAD easily enough, I simply can't make a section plan through it. I'd really like to be able to do this so I can make site plans. Online videos seem to show you picking a plan or point and getting a "plane" whilst I just get a line. I can pick it but unless I set to boundary it's just a line. If I pick this so called section I don't get the additional option in the section place panel either so !?!?!?! If I upload the RCP would anybody who's well versed in this feature see if they can do it or if the RCP is defective in some way?
  19. I have a small project on AutoCAD 2016. I was instructed to draw 3D model of Sydney Opera House. Can you suggest me some tips and tricks how to complete it? Espessially it is hard to model the shells. Thanks

    Scaling problem

    Hello! I was learning autocad, and I tried to create a PDF file. Everything drawn was in annotation scale of 1:1 and my units were selected as milimeters. When I opened viewport and selected 1:1 scaling , it zoomed in really much, and it looks like the scaling of 1:1000 in the viewport is the correct one, to have them 1:1 as in drawing and on paper. Why is this happening ? Why isnt 1:1 working as it should?
  22. Dear CADers, I have a problem with plotting my drawing. The diagonal lines and the text appears very blurry. The file attached below. I have tried reading the forums, and tried a few things but I am not proficient in AutoCAD and am afraid of messing it up. Thank you in advance! 0925 Kathy big.dwg
  23. I don't know if this is possible but have to ask. If I had an Excel spreadsheet sheet that had a list of part numbers, could I Import that into AutoCAD so that it would load premade 3d blocks where I want it to. For example I have a warehouse drawing with specific parts stored in specific locations. I have block drawings already made for each part. I have an Excel sheet with a list of part numbers. Is there a way I can import the Excel sheet and have it populate my warehouse drawing with the part drawing blocks in their perspective locations? Thanks!
  24. Hello, Which is best of AutoCAD products for 2D and 3D Piping Layouts Best Regards.
  25. Hello, I was wondering if anyone is able to create an MLeader style based on the parametrs below and set it to the current Mleader style in LSP code? Also could the new MLeader style be named "Alpha". I am completely aware that there is a way to just copy over the MLeader style, and this is not my goal. I am looking for the code to automate this! I want to be able to add it to the startup LSP so that it is present and set to current every drawing that is opened. This would be a huge help for our CAD group. Here are the MLeader settings that need to be hard coded: Thanks in advance.
