  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. I have a awning window in front elevation that i want to stretch horizontally and vertically , im having trouble getting the triangle to stay in the middle when i stretch horizontally. Can someone help me :) attachment below : Window.dwg
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. Hello, I'm a new user about autocad and new user about this Forum. I try use VB and CAD...

  16. Hello everybody! Few programmers (including myself) decided to create a website with free (for now) AutoLisp programs and scripts for Autocad. Well, we have few questions to define where to start. Your answers would really help. - Do you use programs (scripts) in your work? - Which program (script) you would use but do not have. Best regards, ... PS Link to website asap
  17. Hi all I really do not have much experience with AutoLISP but I would like to write a script that allows me to: 1. Create a new DWG 2. Draw a line from a set of existing coordinates from a .txt file 3. Save this drawing in a specified location 4. Close the drawing 5. Rinse and repeat until all of the .txt files have been drawn. Basically this will be used for hundreds of .txt files containing coordinates to draw the cross-sections of a tunnel. Is this something that can be done? As after hours of research I have only managed to be able to draw one cross-section using a batch file but haven't been able to close the drawing or save it. Thanks in advance for any help

    Xref & Main Drawing

    I'm working in between the Xref and the Main drawing, but after I was done with the first Xref I noticed in the main drawing that is missing the created layers, for that reason, the view in the main drawing was completely wrong,even the created linetype didn't load to the main drawing. I attached a screen shot of the Xref and the main drawing. working with AutoCAD 2015.

  20. Hello Everyone, I am new to the industry and working on my first project involving a basic design which includes relocation of some existing electrical loads to a new switchboard and removing the existing switchboard. I was wondering if anyone could share some of their drawings (single line and floor plan) which I could use a reference. I would really appreciate the help. I am confused on how to create a existing oneline showing the demo stuff and create as-built drawings. Thank you
  21. I am working on a project where it involves relocating of some optional stand-by loads to the emergency side. On the demolition electrical oneline drawings when the load is being demoed it is shown as dashed lines with mark up as demolished. How is a load which is not being demoed but re-located or re-fed from a different source on demolition drawing. Similarly how to show it on the floor plan as well. Thanks in advance for any advice.
  22. Hi folks. I'm looking for a lisp that effectively straightens out a polyline between two points. I know pedit has the straighten feature but you have to scroll to the points you need straightening between. I've also found that you can break/trim between two points and then rejoin, but ideally I'd like a lisp that does this automatically. It's more of an issue when editing associative hatch boundaries please see attached image for an example of the before and after scenario. Thanks RJD
  23. I'm a master student constructional engineering Does anybody have an idea how I should go about drawing rib Vaults in AutoCad. I have to make a 3D model of a belfry tower so I can import it into Finite Element Software (ANSYS workbench). To make it even worse, the tower has 4way, 5way and 6way rib vaults. FML... I do not have the radius of the rib vaults, only heights/distances on a 2D plan. I guess I could import the 2D image and somehow try to get a fitting circle segment. Any thoughts?
  24. Hi! First of all, This is my first post here and I'm not an EXPERT in english, so I will try to explain as good as possible. I'm using Inventor 2012 and AutoCAD Mechanical 2012. In Inventor I have a piece in which it was applied the punching tool (Custom one) it works Perfectly, but when I export it to autoCAD it comes with too many points or vertex, I know if I draw it in autocad I wont have that problem, what that's why we use a Punch Tool, to simplify things and get things easier and always the same. Re-draw is out of the question, unless its the ONLY solution.. We use two CNC Plasma Machine, one of them uses the Software CamBAM and it can edit the vertex and simplifies it and jobs done, but it cant export the job to .dwg or .dxf.. and the second and new machine (the one i'm having trouble) uses FastCAM software, it has something similar to adjust the vertex but, the real problem is within the FastNEST.. Either way, the best solution is to fix the drawing in autocad. EDITPOL doesnt work, as it just joins it, I need to make less points.. I could Upload the file if needed. I'd Really Appreciate any help given. Thanks and Again sorry for my many typos.o:)
