  1. can someone PLEASE help me make this using viewports?? its for my final tomorrow. i have to use three right viewport and it has to have those dimensions
  2. Hola! Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place... I did search for this before posting, but didn't see anything relevant. First of all, I'm an AutoCAD guy. I only know enough about Inventor to be very dangerous. At the company I work for (manufacturing) the Design team (me) uses AutoCAD to create our space planning blocks. This is pre-sale activity. The Engineers model everything (post sales) in Inventor. Occasionally I will be asked to draw something that is "just like that other thing we did," so I will open up Engineering's model of that thing and export to DWG to
  3. Hi all, I've been put in charge of a project to convert roughly 1000 microstation files to autocad. I've googled, but nothing exactly fits the bill. I can put together a lisp routine to do the heavy lifting, but I'm SURE there will be hiccups along the way. The microstation files are circa 2006, so about 9 years old... Any tips or tricks you guys willing to share? I'm doing a quick write up for my boss and we'll probably refine the process a little bit. I feel like I'm a drafter being made into a project manager...kind of exciting Thanks,
  4. Hello, I have modelled a 3D car in AutoCAD; I have attached this file. I have been trying to fillet all of the edges to make it smooth, however I keep getting the error 'Failed to perform blend' and 'Failure while filleting'. I have tried reducing the radius to no avail. Any idea how I could do this? Thanks Porsche.dwg
  5. Hello Friends, I was wondering if there is a website to look at some sample projects for electrical drawings projects like Index, symbols, panel schedules, cable schedules, onelines, demolition oneline etc

  7. Hi, hello everyone. i am new to autolisp. i need a routine that can calculate distance between two points and write it down to active cell of active workbook. (wherever selected in excel). Is it possible? will be very helpful to me. Thanks
  8. Hi Everyone, The recent craze has been to convert DICOM image data to STL or CAD files. To investigate how a product is going to work for a project I am working on I want to do the exact opposite. I want to take a 3d model and export image files at fixed intervals. Preferably the format would be DICOM but I can work around that If need be. The question is whether or nor there is a fast way to slice ACAD Drawings (exported to any format) and export these images. Thanks, Will P.S. I apologize if this should be in the 3D forums. This seemed like the right place

  10. Hello guys and greetings from Greece! I'm working on my thesis, and i need immediately some tree or bush blocks for an autocad project. I'm currently working on Autocad 2013. Thank you all!
  11. Hi there, I am using this lisp to remove binding Prefix from dimstyle name and textstyle name as well. After removing prefix some style names are matching existing names and that cancelling the renaming process. I need someone to modify this lisp (I don't know the developer name) to merge the style if its name after removing prefix will be typically matching other name of an existing style. Please help ! I googled this issue hundreds of times and i didn't find ! (defun c:RBP(/ ActDoc Name NewName) (vl-load-com) (defun RemoveBindPrefix (String / Pos LastPos) (if (setq Pos (vl-strin

HELP HELP:)
  13. As some of you will know, this site has an FAQ section where commonly asked questions about AutoCAD are given model answers so that beginners or others can be refferred to these rather than members having to answer in a thread every time the same question is asked. It seemed like a good idea at the time to form a team to implement the FAQ and for a while it went well. However, members come and members go and it has been difficult to keep the project going - in truth, it has stalled. So, my question to the community is: would it be beneficial to replace the closed (only editable by a sm
  14. For some reason the Express Tools were not loaded when they installed Autocad 2015. I guess the checkbox was overlooked among the tons of other stuff loaded. In days of old you could copy the Express Tools folder, load the Express Tools Menu and "APPLOAD" the main file and you were good to go. I found the Express folder among the install files (they're not compressed) But when I go to load the menu, I don't see it. Can anyone walk me through the process of manually loading the Express Tools in Autocad 2015 (Please??) Thanks Much!!
  15. Hey, I am tracing a curvy 2D shape using arc function. I want the outline of the shape very smooth. I would like to know how do I draw arcs that can be tangent to each other so eventually I can get this shape very smooth and nice. Thank you very much!
  16. Hey, can anyone help me with this project? I need to draw a circle tangent to 3 points on the red shape in the image I attached. The circle's diameter needs to represent the longest distance between 2 points on the shape. The question I have is: I don't know how to look for these 3 points on the shape. I also don't know how to find the 2 points on the shape which represents the longest distance inside of the shape. So how do I draw the circle? I am so frustrated with this. Anyone who can help me I would appreciate a lot. Thank you so much!!!
  17. Hi, brand new to this site and my very first thread! I am trying to write a LISP routine and basically have no experience with it except for opening them up and trying to decode it for my self. I am going over lisp basics right now but thought I would through this out there in hopes of learning something from you fine folks. What I need to do is draw a series of circles and rectangles and label them from values in a .CSV file. As I mentioned I am going over the basics and am having trouble keeping my head above water, so be kind please. Thanks in advance, CADINATOR

    Inventor LT vs AutoCAD

    Hello wise forum members, At my very small company, we currently use AutoCAD LT 2008 (it’s ok to laugh). I would like to upgrade to a 3D product so I can produce 3D renderings as well as the occasional unfolded cone. I’m trying to decide whether to purchase Inventor LT Suite or AutoCAD (full version- not LT). Here’s the conundrum: Inventor LT Suite offers 3D and also can unfold a cone (I’m quite sure). AutoCAD offers 3D, but cannot unfold a cone (based on my limited experience with a trial version). So, Inventor LT Suite appears to be more powerful than AutoCAD, YET it
  19. How can we select all polylines in drawing that have length less than 2.00 or by any specific length.
  20. I have designer drawings coming from Adobe Illustrator. I need to open those drawings in AutoCAD to make technical drawings. Then designers need to open them in Adobe Illustrator to make adjustments. How can I make these transition smoothly? Because now when I open ai files in AutoCAD, the lines are terrible. I have to redraw every lines. When designers open pdf file I saved from CAD in Adobe Illustrator, there are too many anchor points to edit. Anyone can help? Really appreciated!
  21. Hey, I have one vertex not smooth on my drawing. How can I change its tangency? It also shows a "+" sign near it, which I don't know what it means. I attached the drawing here for your reference. Thank you so much!!! vertex problem.dwg
  22. I opened an AutoCAD drawing of a building (not done in AutoCAD Architecture) and the entire layout was blocked. I attempted the explode command and it didn't change anything. I was able to go into the block editor, copy all contents, and paste it into a new blank drawing. Once pasted, it was no longer a block. Anyone experience that before, where you're not able to explode a block? Is there a way to lock/unlock blocks?
  23. I work in IT support at a large college, since upgrading to AutoCAD 2015 we have been having a problem with borrowed licences not working. Everything worked fine under AutoCAD 2013. A standard user can log onto a college laptop OK and launch AutoCAD 2015, they can follow the normal procedure (Help > About > Product Information > Borrow Licence) and get a message that the licence has been successfully borrowed, when the user tries launching AutoCAD 2015 away from the network they get the message that a licence cannot be found. When I log onto the same laptop with an admin acco

  25. I like to extend the last created polyline from its last endpoint using autolisp.
