    Help with 1987 Balloon LISP

    I have a LISP that creates balloons simply for me, the problem is the LISP only makes balloons with a dot on the end. I have been playing about with it trying to make it have the option to put an arrow head on the end but can't work it out after trying for quite a while. The draughtsmen here have been using it since they started so I'm not sure if LISPs will be written the same way now as they were in '87! Any help would be great. Cheers. Here is the code; ;---------- BALLOON.LSP Simon Jones 24-8-87 ; Macro to simplify the construction of item-number labels. ; The size of the dot, text and balloon are based on the dimensioning ; variables. If DIMASZ is set to zero the dot is not drawn.

  5. Dear All, Good Day, I am looking for a method to export all the GPS coordinates which have been assigned to each point along with the properties of that point to an excel csv. In our drawings, there are multiple columns and each column has four points and each point has X,Y,Z coordinates. I want to export all this information to an excel sheet. Any idea? Thank You

  9. If using a Partial customization file that is still in the process of being updated regularly or you’d like that option to updated it, is the best practice to load it via the acad.lsp and your loader through the acad.lsp?
  10. Good afternoon. I haven't used autocad since 2002. I am look for a good instructional video that will get me up to speed with regards to autocad 2014. I just downloaded the trial version of Autocad 2014 and I want to become proficient enough to be employable within the next few weeks. I have used Autocad, Catia and Unigraphics in the past when I was in college, but that was years ago. I am looking to get back into the CAD market and find a cad job while sprucing up my skills. If you guys could direct me to an online source that I can view Autocad videos that would put me on a running start, I would greatly appreciate it. Any suggestions would me most appreciated. Thanks in advance autocad 2014, employment, money, cad, autocad, hiring
  11. Dear AutoCAD users: We would like to develop a plugin for AutoCAD to create geometries (line/arc/circle/ellipse/polyline etc.) through touchscreen. So instead of using commands, it will be just like freehand drawing, the program will automatically generate shapes to match your touchscreen input. We want to do a little survey here to see if it makes sense to you? Will you buy it? One concern is, because touchscreen input is not as precise as through keyboard & mouse, the dimensions might be a little off (e.g. you want to draw a line with a length of 10.5, the program thinks it is a 10), and you will need to make some adjustments afterwards to get the exact size you really want. Would this be problem for you? Thanks! Disclaimer: We are a startup working on our own project and have no relations to Autodesk.

    Using AutoCAD for Island Mapping

    I am looking to draw a large lake that I live on that has 14,000+ islands. I have started drawing small sections by bringing in high quality maps and tracing them using the spline command. Is there a faster way to trace the entire lake. I want it to be all drawn with closed poly lines so that I am able to laser cut it and apply hatching. Other tracing programs in which I insert a image of the lake and it gives me the CAD format are very inaccurate and a pain to work with. What do you recommend? I have attached a small section of what I am trying to trace, I want the islands to be traced.
  15. Hi, i was searching for some good block for free and I found this website, i would like to share with you. It has over 200 blocks well organized by category (indoors, outdoors, vehicles, people, office etc.) and above all they are free and with no need of registration. There's also some pattern. They also have a 3ds max section but i think it's under construction Hope it helps http://max-cad.com

    A Dummy Question

    Hello, I'm starting out with Autocad and I have a little question that may sound a little dumb to you'll but is really troubling me. I'm using autocad 2004 and when I try to draw a line in feet, the line just goes out of the the screen and the screen just doesn't scroll. It works fine when it is around 1 or 2 feet, but just goes out of the page when i try to draw above 5 feet. Please help me with this.
  17. I want to check whether any official name, size, etc for this type of air slot. Thanks
  18. I have few .arx applications for AutoCAD. In these applications few are menu based and others are command line. Now what I am trying to do is, Load the .arx app, run it and then unload it once the .arx application runs through a LISP command. .arx applications run once the user clicks on the tabs that are provided. .arx applications are written in VC++. Now I have a lisp file, which gets loaded once the user starts AutoCAD. In the lisp files I have declared these functions for various .arx applications; (defun c:XYZ_program() (command) (command) (arxload "C:/ABC/XYZ.arx") (command "XYZ_program") (arxunload "XYZ.arx") ) It works fine for Programs which need input data from Menu based forms, but says error unloading xyz.arx for programs which need command line input. I was wondering if there were any commands in LISP that will make sure arxunload "XYZ.arx" will execute only once (command "XYZ_program") is executed. I am not sure on how to approach this problem. Any help with the same would be greatly appreciated. I have also discussed this question with others in the following link, but did not find much of help. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17602443/loading-and-unloading-the-arx-file-with-lisp You can have a look at it, just to gather some information, in which direction were we heading.

  20. Apologies in advance if this isn't in the most appropriate category. I recently started work at a marketing firm that was seeking people experienced in Revit. I used it a lot in school so I thought, awesome. When they told me more about the position, they told me I'd be using the software to create furniture pieces that'll go into rendered floorplans and their goal is for the pieces to look as real as possible in the rendering. Creating pieces wasn't something I did a lot of in my classes but I thought a challenge would be welcome. The problem is that I have one coworker who did very basic training in the software and that's it. No one else knows anything about Revit so I figured this is a good place to ask. I've found that tables are easy. Anything with edges, I'm fine with. But when pieces are supposed to have softer edges (like pillows, beds, chairs, etc) I'm having more trouble with making them. I've tried using the Model In Place option and the start from scratch option where I just go right into making a new component. It's a bit time consuming, but I'm hoping it's just because I'm new at it. I've even used the 3D Modeling part of AutoCAD 2013. It does make cushions easier but there's still some things I'm just not able to figure out. My main question is this: is it possible to make detailed/realistic furniture pieces for Revit (like things I would find on RevitCity) in Revit itself or should I use other AutoCAD software. The other two I've been looking at were Inventor or 3DS Max. I used Inventor a bit in classes for designing mechanical pieces and loved it. I've never used 3DS but I checked into it on YouTube and the videos show plenty of things I could use at work. Any helpful opinions on the matter would be greatly appreciated. I don't mind if I end up having to learn another program, as long as it makes things smoother and quicker in the long run.
  21. Is there a way to create a lips program or a vba macro to offset a line on both sides, keep the source, then trim all the content between the two offset lines and delete them. Or is there a way to create the same effect around a MLeader? Something like the described on the attached imaged
  22. Im trying to plot a 3D object in Autocad 2009 but can't remove the hidden lines. The "Hide" command removes the appropriate lines in the viewport and in the print preview but the print-out still appears with all the lines.

    3d arrow ?

    Hi, How can I draw a 3d arrow in autocad 2012? (where the arrow head is a cone, or something that appears in all view angles). Assuming the answer will be a cone and line grouped, how can I rotate them (I seem to be able to rotate only in the xy plane)
  24. Hi, the problem I was facing (and still facing) was that I use my mouse middle button (scroll) as pan when clicked, But it poped out menu for snap overrides, then I resolved this issue by MBUTTONPAN variable by setting its value to 1. Now when I start a new file or a new session it reverts back to snap override menu and I have to again use variable. The changes I am making are not lasting more then a drawing. Can any one tell me what's causing this and how can I resolve this. Once I made a change in variable it should be permanent unit I change it again, but it is not. So does any one have any solutions. I have also tried profile for this case, but same results. Even the changes I have made to FILL or TASKBAR or ZOOMFACTOR and many like this which I am used to are not working more then a drawing. Would appreciate any one's expertise.
  25. Hey guys, I am working on a project where I am attempting to design a pendant. I wanted to do this in solidworks but I am not as experience with that and I'm having issues, so I went to what I know, AutoCAD. Unfortunately I am still having problems and I think it has to do with the import file from Adobe illustrator. What I have is a circle with different parts and block text that I would like to cut out. I saved the illustrator file to a dwg file and it imported with a hatch over all the solid areas. I deleted that to get the respective outlines, and extruded. Most loops extruded but some failed to do so for some reason. But I have an option to convert to a pline, but then I get a specify precision dialog which adds a bunch of points along what seems to be a straight line. Anyway, when I do manage to get things extruded, and go to perform the subtract command (or intersect which would be faster) I click the main shape, and then click the items I would like to remove, but it doesnt do anything. I have no idea what the problem is. Does anyone have experience with this? I did get one whole to subtract, but I really dont know the difference between that and the others that made it work. (P.S. If anyone has experience with solid works, I imagine this would be the same process. But I can get the outlines to appear, and extrude the outside shape, but I can't figure out how to get the inner holes to cut out.) Unashamed2.dwg
