    AutoCAD 2017 SP1 warning

    Jimmy Bergmark from JTB World, has reported that the just released SP1 for AutoCAD 2017 breaks the functionality of the "plug-in auto loader mechanism". Please make note of this before installing SP1, which is currently only available via the Autodesk Desktop App. References below: Ref 1: AutoCAD 2017 Service Pack 1 and a word of warning Ref 2: AutoCAD 2017 Service Pack 1 is out but you probably don’t want to install it
  2. Hi I have used the Extract Intersections between two surfaces to get a complex line but I dont know how to give a thickness to it How can I give a thickness to make it a solid? Thank you
  3. Hey guys, so I'm converting some IDWs to AutoCAD format, and when they go to open them dimensions are not showing up and some other things are jumbled about. I even opened them up in my AutoCAD and purged several times, and re saved them into DXFs and AutoCAD DWGs. Am I missing a step or something? What can I give them so they can just dimension it in their title block? STEP file?
  4. Hello all you CAD Guru's out there! I am currently having trouble creating a lisp and am in desperate need of experienced guidance. I am trying to make a command such as (defun C:lo () (command "layer" "on" "*" "t" "*" "")) which turns all layers on, however i need the layers Circuit-1 through Circuit-12 to be untouched. For example if i have circuits 5 through 12 turned off, frozen, whatever state they may be in needs to not be affected by the command to turn all layers on. Basically I would like to make a command that turns all layers on with the exception of layers Circuit-1 through Circuit-12 I started to write a code based on layer groups which I though may be the way to accomplish this task. I.E. make a layer group of all layers EXCLUDING or removing Circuit 1-12 and thaw or turn on all of that layer group. I am unsuccessful in thawing the "new layer filter" using code. (I can however right click on the group and change its visibility to thawed and that works.) (defun c:TESTER (/) (COMMAND "-LAYER" "FILTER" "NEW" "GROUP" "" "*" "NEW LAYER FILTER" "") (COMMAND "-LAYER" "FILTER" "EDIT" "NEW LAYER FILTER" "DELETE" "CIRCUIT-1" "DELETE" "CIRCUIT-2" "DELETE" "CIRCUIT-3" "DELETE" "CIRCUIT-4" "DELETE" "CIRCUIT-5" "DELETE" "CIRCUIT-6" "DELETE" "CIRCUIT-7" "DELETE" "CIRCUIT-8" "DELETE" "CIRCUIT-9" "DELETE" "CIRCUIT-10" "DELETE" "CIRCUIT-11" "DELETE" "CIRCUIT-12" "") (command "-layer" "t" "new layer filter" "")) Where have I gone wrong?

  6. how to divide a polygon into 3 equal polygons (same area or we known area)? I wanted to divide the polygon shown in the screenshot below into equal 3 polygons (with same area), but I couldn't figure out if these is some commands or workflow to perform this issue is the "trial and error" is the only technique by which this issue can be done? thank you in advance, regards malkasun
  7. Hello, i am using autocad 2017, and i need to create a countersink. I would like to know if it is possible in autocad 2017, i couldn't find the tools that would allow me to do so. I tried chamfering but it is not giving the desired results. The holes where i need countersinks are the holes in the middle. http://i.picpar.com/HoPb.png Do i need to acquire inventor or another autodesk program designed for this purpose. Thank you.
  8. I'm working in millimeters and whenever I use the AREA command I end up with a large number. I want to know if you can customize the AREA command somehow to show meters squared automatically.

  10. Using Civil 3D 2016 and having Intermittent Problems with not being able to remove items from the selection set. Anyone else having this problem? Terry Nolan www.FloridaDraftingServices.com www.1stProto.com 1stProto Design Services
  11. I am gobsmacked that Autodesk have the cheek to require customers to pay a sum on top of the subscription fee for obtaining an update in their software. Subscription licenses are costing organisations thousands of pounds annually, but still ask for more money to obtain the software! The installers are now in the 10's of Gb's. Surely from a customer relations exercise, it makes sense to swallow the cost of the media & postage?
  12. Hi there I am looking for some kind of lisp to import points or 3d polyline along with a reference line. I am attaching reference files for study. thanks Bridge Plan.dwg Profile Data.csv
  13. Hi Everybody, Via the command area it is possible to retrieve the surface area of a solid body (Acad3DSolid). Unfortunately the area it is not a property of a solid body so I'm haveing difficulties retrieving the surface area (which I want to write to an excel file). I've tried to explode the solid which results in several regions and surfaces. Unfortunately only the regions have an area; the (curved) surfaces don't. Anybody suggestions how to get the area of some solids useing VBA? Looking forward to the suggestions!
  14. Hi I have been having this issue with several versions of Autocad. At some point the application will start showing a lagging behavior when entering and existing commands. It completely blows my concentration and the productive flow away. I have researched quite a lot on the net, and tried all the usual suspects: Disabling all CPU consuming features (cycle, dynamic inputs, properties palette, visual effects, etc). I have de-activated all the 3d performance settings. Disable "enable desktop composition" in Windows. All my graphic drivers are up to date. But nothing seems to work and the frustration start to be quite annoying. Anyone managed to find a solution for this? Your help will be super appreciated! I am running AutocadCAD 2013 in W7 (64bits) Ras
  15. Hello everyone, So I work in a cabinet shop as a drafter. I am trying to save time drawing our shop drawings using dynamic blocks. I have been trying all morning and researching through forums with no luck. I have simple 3/4" MDF slab doors and I need a block that can divide the doors between 10" to 20" equal widths with 1/8" space between the doors. In essence I will need 2 blocks, one for the plan section and one for the elevation, the same concept applies. Previously I would use the divide command after subtracting all 1/8" reveals to manually get equal doors. I will greatly appreciate if someone can help me and ease the process. Please see attachment to see what I am trying to resolve. Thank you,Auto Cabinet Door Division.dwg
  16. Dear smarties I read a few articles here and there regarding a way to generate multiple drawings from an excel file, but no one had explained step by step on how to do it. So, I am lost half way. I am very new to this kind of things, but I will try to follow, so please go slow on me. here is what I want to fix: 1. I need to automatically generate 10 drawings both in dwg and pdf copied into a folder. 2. All the variables (VAR1 to VAR3) are stored in an excel file. refer to the attached files as an example. 3. I only need to create one original drawing, which will be used to generate all the 10 drawings. Please help EXCEL-VAR.xls ORIGINAL-DWG.dwg

  18. Hello Folks! Having problems with the UCS at the moment. I have rotated my drawings with the UCS command and used the plan command to set the drawings in the angle i want to view them in. And then used world to get the co-ordinate system true to its original state. The problem is when i am trying to attach the drawings together, they are in different places. Do you guys have any clues? (Sorry for my bad english) /Per-Anton
  19. Hi guys, Is it possible to specify zoom factor that will show on my monitor same size as will printed on paper? For example: i'm making drawing in 1:100 scale in milimeters, and before printing it i want to make sure that everything is readable. I know that depands on screen resolution, dpi and pixel size.

    Survey Data Point Collection in AutoCAD

    I just have normal autocad 2016, nothing fancy like civil 3d. I was wondering, is there a way i can bring in a survey point data file (.txt or .asc) into Autocad. Maybe by something in program by default, or a 3rd party plug in that is compatible with autocad. I don't want to spend way more money for the Autocad civil 3d license.
  23. Hey everyone, I guess this is a simple project but I have absolutely 0 ideas on how to do it. I know the basics of AutoCAD, but I'm not good at it. This is my assignment. This is the example of how my assignment should look like (keep in mind that it is not the final result of my assignment, but an example of how i should finalise it.) Any help would be appreciated!
