  1. Full AutoCAD 2011. When inserting Obsolete Block the word Obsolete comes in oblique 28 degees, but all the other text remains correct. When opening block as a regular file all text comes in fine. This is only happening to me and not the other drafters. Am I missing a setting somewhere?
  2. Hi, I created some Dynamic Block and inserted them in a new Tool Palettes, but when I want to insert them in a new drawing the Block looses all the dynamic thing like rotation, flip... How can I solve this problem? Thank you. PID-SYMBOL.dwg
  3. Drawing3.dwg Hi, I wish to have a situation in which the intermediate dimensions change equally when I increase or decrease the overall dimension (see attached dwg file). And it is necessary to have the dimensions annotative. I tried using parametric dimensionsing along with block creation, but the drawing gets distorted. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  4. I've been trying to find existing lisp routines to do the following for a while now (off and on). While I have found some that will change values of Attributes or the text width for every piece of text in a drawing, that is not what I need done. I need a lisp routine that will be manually modified with the current Attribute TAG and Block name based on client titleblock. It can't require manual selection (user input) as this will be used in a script to batch run the lisp routine. To kind of summarize, I would like the ability to specify a block name and attribute tag name (in the specified block) and be able to set the text width factor in the drawing to account for longer filenames per client requests. This is only for the 1 attribute in all drawings. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Here is an example: Titleblock has: Attribute: File name TAG: DRAWINGNO Value: Linked to actual filename with a field Current text width factor is .8 and it needs to be .7 to fit within the titleblock space.
  5. I've spent some time writing up the following tutorial which aims to demonstrate how to construct a simple block counter and in the process give the user an introduction to association lists and dotted pairs: Building Association Lists: A Simple Block Counter The tutorial is a step-by-step walkthrough of the process of creating the block counter, with diversions here and there to explain the various concepts used by the program. Throughout the tutorial I've also tried to explain why every part of the code is used in the way that it is, rather than providing the reader with a block of code and leaving some parts without an explanation (for example, why the program should include (princ) or (prin1) as the last expression etc.). I welcome your feedback on the tutorial - Is it too simplified? Is it too long? Too boring? All of the above? Feel free to also point out any typos, as these can be difficult to spot when proof-reading your own work. Thanks, Lee
  6. Hello all, I have the following issue: When working with dynamic blocks, the file get's bigger fast. We have huge drawings in our company due to big projects. This is why I'm asking if it's possible to do something like an 'explode' on your dynamic blocks but without losing the 'blocks'. So if you have 3 dynamic blocks -> EXPLODE -> 3 sepperated blocks Without changing anything. Can you help me? PS. Block file in attachment. TestBlock.dwg Thanks!
  7. Hey all, this is my first post so I'm sorry if I violate any of the forum rules. I appreciate the help! I'm trying to write a script to get the latest revision number from our drawings, then save that info into a text or CSV file. Each drawing has a revision block like the image tagged below. How would I do that in LISP? Thanks!
  8. Hi All, I'm looking to see if there is a Lisp out there that as you copy a block in a drawing the first attribute with change in increments of 1 I.e. P1 P2 P3 Thickness " " " " Material " " " " (1) " " " " P1 Would be the attribute that changes every time it gets copied. Thanks Brain
  9. I am stuck on the syntax to write a block without user input. On executing the lisp, I want it to get a selection set from a variable and then write it to a new block without asking the user for input. The basepoint can be "0,0,0" and the file path is a pre-set path. The general command I'm trying to use goes like this (I know it's wrong, but I don't know where to go from here) (command "-wblock" "C:\\Users\\DefaultUser\\Desktop\\ScriptTest\\Blocktest1.dxf" "0,0,0") I've searched LISP routines all over the place but can't find one that does this. I'm mostly looking for examples that contain a similar line of code.
  10. Hello! I am having an issue with a block that a college made in Autocad. It is a block that shows which xref's that are attached to the drawing. But for some reason, the text in the block is not visable for me, but the block works fine for my colleges. Do you guys have any clues about this issue?

    What layer is the object?

    Hi! My question is, when you have a block, in a block, in a block,... How can you know, by only clicking one time, in what layer a specific block or line is? Thanks! - DM

    Block visibity

    Hello guys! I have a block with 6 visibility which I can change easyli with the drop-down list. It works well. But if I change the scale of the block it lose the drop-down list. In the block editor I can see the 6 different states but no drop-down list in the model space. Why? Could you help me? Do you have any ideas? thank you for the answer! T
  13. Hello friends I come to your great help: oops: so I can provide some lisp routine for the following: * I want to place a block that multiply at the ends of several polylines, perpendicular and placing them to leave the color and the layer of each polyline are selecting. He explained in the best dwg I'm attached. I hope you can help me because I have a lot of work with what you tell them, so I need your help so that they can develop a routine. much for your attention. Greetings from Lima, Peru Muestra_para_rutina.dwg
  14. Hi, I search for Lisp for insert block faster. Ex.: if a write "1" on keyboard, i can insert "block 1" in my drawing. I can insert "block 1" until a stop the LISP if a write "2" on keyboard, i can insert "block 2" in my drawing. I can insert "block 2" until a stop the LISP All my block are in the same drawing. Thanks a lot
  15. Hello, This is a very strange behavior as sometime it appears and sometimes it doesn't. Anyway what I do is draw some walls, add them to a new block, save and then edit-in-place. What I might be missing?
  16. Hello, I don't even know where to begin... I'm trying to construct a scale bar that can be linked with a chosen viewport, upon insertion into paperspace. Civil3d 2015 already has several of these "preloaded" in the Layout Element panel, but these scalebars are not "smart", requiring input from the user (I'm trying to create these for newbies in our office). Any thoughts or help is appreciated.
  17. I am trying to make a dynamic block to somewhat mimic the 3D Revolve command, since I can't Sweep or Revolve 3D entities in the dynamic block, I want to fake it by making a revolved curved piece that travels 5° increments of a circle at a time, the dynamic part would be to make it copy itself end to end using the same axis as the part. I tried polar and rotate, they won't copy AND rotate, they always stay in a straight line. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks! R.L. Hamm
  18. This search has me baffled as to how there seems to be no trace of this question/answer on the whole internet! How can I make the labels (Distance, Lookup etc.) bigger in the dynamic block editor? I can tell they are relative to screen size, I zoom in and they adjust, I just need them a little bigger. Is it a windows setting? I've looked in Options/Display/Fonts and it only controls command line size. Thanks! R.L. Hamm
  19. Is it possible to customize the DIMJOGLINE symbol? The /\/ part that gets inserted is kind of spread out too much in my opinion, I'm wondering if there's a block somewhere hidden in the Autodesk folders that can be edited. After inserting this thing, I see no block in the drawing when I list the blocks. Thanks in advance! R.L. Hamm
  20. Hi all, I'm hoping you can help. I require a lisp file that can count the number of blocks in a drawing and calculate the total area of say a polyline that is in each block and plot it in a table format? Can anyone point me in the right direction please? Thanks Peter
  21. Hello, I have a problem with a flip action in a block. I have attached cad file, so its easier to understand the problem. The more I ''flip'' the block, the more distorted it gets. Could somebody tell me please what the problem is, cause I'm out of ideas flip nonsense.dwg
  22. Hi folks. Have been trying to make s lisp code for a simple task but turned out that it might not be so easy. I found lots of information but not this one. So i'm asking if this is even possible to do. I have a block and it has many entities. The block has a name but all the (2-3) entities have different color. I'm trying to change the entity color without exploding the block and change the entity name. This part is ok and i even found a good solution for this. However the problem is that i have to rename also the main block regarding the selected color for the entity. I have 5-10 options for color. (112=blue, 113=red etc.) So the final block name should turn out as 123456-112. I know how to find the block name and change but when i go deep into entities then i dont have the DXF code for the original block name. So here i am in an endless loop. Can someone assist or show me some directions how to manage with this? Thanks.
  23. Does anyone know a way or has a LISP where you could connect dynamic block parameter with an excel table? I know there is a way to insert a block at x,y,z coordinates (found a LISP for that some time ago, message me if you need it). I would like to add the parameter in that LISP where I could control the size(distance, rotation...) of the parameter.

    Block scale lisp

    I was wondering if there is a lisp routine out the will scale a block down to fit inside of box? I would work on the same as the Textfit lisp but with blocks. its sounds simple but I have know clue where to start. step 1 = select block step 2 = select inside side of interior area of box. if someone could help I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Brian
  25. I've created a dynamic block with a stretch and array action. It is basically a beam with holes drilled into it. When I stretch the beam the holes array. The problem is when I stretch it out and then stretch it back the last hole off of the beam does not disappear. I've attached the block. Thanks. Wildeck Rack Guard, End of Aisle.dwg
