  1. I received a drawing that contains a layer in the manager box. But when I attempted to Quick Select that layer, the result returns as "0" and this same layer cannot be deleted, since the message tells me that layers with objects cannot be deleted. I thawed all layers and still get "0" and the layer won't delete. This should mean that the layer is hidden inside a block. This drawing has several hundreds of blocks! Is there an application within AutoCAD that will reveal to me which block that layer is in?
  2. Hi, I am Michel Can you kindly to help me to. I need a lisp for a cable routing. I have just a block consist of 3 attributes (TAG, SRTP, MVZ). I need to extract each relating value in separate column in excel. For example, if I select 5 blocks in drawing, I need to have 5 columns, each column has only 3 rows (3 attributes) and the possibility to have different rows for different electric cables in same file. Thank you in advance Michel richiesta.xlsx
  3. Hi, I would like to know some help. 01 - Is there a possibility in this Lee Mac lisp, Automatically Label Attributes, that it can be changed so that every time I open a different file it asks me about the increment, prefix and suffix settings? Because in the current way it always loads the pre-configuration that is already in lisp. I don't want to have to edit the lisp to configure the numbers for each file. Note: I use attributed blocks and multileader blocks. 02 - I also use the Lisp Incremental Numbering Suite, I would like to know if the option for multileaders can be added. As the current options are only for text, mtext and blocks. For my use multileaders are more interesting. Because the use of block with attributes will have to be manually making the leader lines to indicate their positions and references after their insertion and when you have many blocks end up wasting valuable time. I would like to know if it is possible to make any of these changes, since lisps have many lines. Note: Sorry for the google translation. #NumIncV3-9.lsp AutoLabelAttributesV1-4.lsp
  4. What command can I use to find a block by its name in my drawing and then delete it?
  5. I'm trying to modify some code to achieve the following: Ask the user to pick multiple blocks, step through each block, get the extents of the block, and save a view with the view name equal to the name of the block. Doing some research I've managed to get the extents of the block but can't figure out how to store the block name as a variable and use it as the view name. The code I found will draw a rectangle around the block using vla-getboundingbox but I can't figure out how to assign the name of the block to a variable for use in the -view command. I have a few hundred blocks in the same drawing. Existing code is: (defun c:BlockExtentsToRectangle (/ BlockObject mn mx) (vl-load-com) (if (setq BlockObject (car (entsel "\n >> Select Object >> "))) (progn (vla-getboundingbox (vlax-ename->vla-object BlockObject) 'mn 'mx) (vl-cmdf "._rectang" (vlax-safearray->list mn) (vlax-safearray->list mx)))) (princ) )
  6. Drawing A: old tag definition Drawing B: new tag definition Hi Guys, I have an opened drawing file A with an old attribute tag definition and brought in another attribute block with the same name but having a new attribution tag definition from a drawing file B. I had purposefully purged drawing A’s attribute block containing the old tag definition, hoping to bring in the same-name attribute from drawing B, having new tag definition. It went well except the Enhanced Attribute Editor still contains the old tag definition of drawing A – even though Battman shows the new defined tags from drawing B. This means that I need to somehow, Purge the old defined tags from drawing A. Am I able to purge the attribute’s definition from a drawing? I am doing this so I may not have to change the attribute block’s name and keep the new tag definition. Thanks for your time, "Mitch"

  11. So I have been trying to figure this out with several approaches now and I need some help. I would like to send all Wipeouts, or really any specified entity type, within a block to the back of the draw order. Is there a way to do this using Lee Mac's Apply To Block Objects routine? I tried this in conjunction with his draw order routines but the MovetoBottom command kept failing. I'm pretty rough with VisualLisp which is part of the issue when trying to troubleshoot his great routines. Or what about this approach? (I dont really understand it, again Visual Lisp) Below is what I tried. I do understand Vanilla Lisp. Visual Lisp I barely know the basics, but eager to learn. Please help me improve my capabilities. I love autolisp. Thank you. The issue is clearly with the lambda function and my improper use of it Im sure. The ssget I am trying to do is incorrect approach for use with his function. ;=========================================================== ; 11/Sep/2020 10:09 AM[Friday] AUTHOR: Brandon Gum ;-- ;DESCRIPTION: ;Select block with wipeout. ;Will send wipeout objects the back of the draw orer ;=========================================================== (defun c:test ( / s ) (princ "\nSelect Block: ") (if (setq s (ssget "_+.:E:S" '((0 .

  12. Hi all, I'm not new to AutoCAD but I've honestly never created a dynamic block and don't know what I need to do. I've watched a few tutorials on dynamic blocks but what I am trying to do seems a little different than the typical use-case. I do a lot of audio-visual one-line drawings in AutoCAD. I have device equipment blocks showing all input and output connectors. I manually make them for every device but am looking to have a go-to generic dynamic block for one-off simple devices. Here are examples of finished manually created blocks: However, what I am looking for is a block that dynamically transform from this: To this: Ideally, block parameters would define how many "lines" of connections there is. Or, I am guessing there is a way for the block to be stretched such that the lines of connections become visible, but I do not want free stretch. The bottom edge of the rectangle should be a specific spacing from the middle of the last line of text. I'm sure the text could be shown or hidden with visibility, but then I don't understand how I'd resize the rectangle as required. Attributes can allow text for NAME and CONN for each IN/OUT. The manufacturer, model, and DEV_ID are all attributes. If for example there are a different number of inputs/outputs, I imagine just leaving the text attributes blank is enough to effectively hide them. If there's videos on doing this sort of dynamic block, links are appreciated. Most of the videos I've found are discussing layout/graphic objects. Thanks!
  13. Hello! I'm looking for a solution to my problem. I have a block (center in the attached image) that I'd like to be able to scale as usual, but I want the red circle to remain the same size always. This particular one is a symbol for a smoke detector and the red circle is supposed to be the coverage of this detector. That is why I want the coverage circle to remain a constant diameter of let's say 10 meters, but I'd still like to be able to scale the smoke detector symbol depending on viewport scale. I also want the circle to follow the detector so that I don't have to select both. Other requests are the ability to freeze or turn off visibility of the circle, but I'd still want it to follow the smoke detector if moved. Is any of this doable? What are your thoughts? Thanks!

  18. I have a drawing that has two different blocks (see attached), what I needed to do was transfer over the attributes of one block over to the other (both have different tags). For example copying over attributes in "rev0_date" from the first block tag over to "revslot1date" in the second block tag , I ran across some code in the forums that did just that created by Lee Mac.The problem with it is it only transfers one attribute over, I modified it a little but its still not exactly what I need. The way it currently works is - It asks me to choose the first block with the attributes to copy, once selected it then asks me to choose the second block that will have the attributes pasted to it, once I've selected them, it then pastes the first specified tag attribute in the first block to the second, after that I have to repeat the process again, clicking the block with the attribute to copy and then choosing the second block to paste, I have to keep repeating these steps, clicking the first block then the second over and over until all the tag attributes have been copied over. My question is how can I stop having click the first and then second block over and over again for each tag and instead only have to go through the process once (click first block, then second and then transfer all the attributes over at once). Here is my current code (sorry if its a mess I'm very new to this): (defun c:blockswap ( / _SelectBlockWithTag a b des src tag ) (vl-load-com) (setq DAT1A "Rev0_Date" ; Source Attribute Tag 1 DES1A "Rev0_Desc" ; Source Attribute Tag 2 REV1A "Rev0" ; Source Attribute Tag 3 RDB1A "Rev0_Drawn_By" ; Source Attribute Tag 4 REV1B "RevSlot1Number" ; Destination Attribute Tag 3 DES1B "RevSlot1Description" ; Destination Attribute Tag 2 DAT1B "RevSlot1Date" ; Destination Attribute Tag 1 RDB1B "RevSlot1DrawnBy" ; Destination Attribute Tag 4 ) (defun _SelectBlockWithTag ( tag / e a ) (setq tag (strcase tag)) (while (progn (setvar 'ERRNO 0) (setq f (car (entsel (strcat "\nSelect Block with attribute " tag ": ")))) (cond ( (= 7 (getvar 'ERRNO)) (princ "\nMissed, Try Again.") ) ( (not f) nil ) ( (and (eq "INSERT" (cdr (assoc 0 (entget f)))) (= 1 (cdr (assoc 66 (entget f)))) ) (if (not (setq z (vl-some (function (lambda ( x ) (if (eq tag (strcase (vla-get-tagstring x))) x) ) ) (vlax-invoke (vlax-ename->vla-object f) 'getattributes) ) ) ) (princ (strcat "\nBlock does not contain tag " tag ".")) ) ) ( (princ "\nInvalid Object Selected.") ) ) ) ) z ) (and (setq aa (_SelectBlockWithTag DAT1A)) (setq ab (_SelectBlockWithTag DAT1B)) ) (vla-put-textstring ab (vla-get-textstring aa)) (and (setq ba (_SelectBlockWithTag DES1A)) (setq bb (_SelectBlockWithTag DES1B)) ) (vla-put-textstring bb (vla-get-textstring ba)) (and (setq ca (_SelectBlockWithTag REV1A)) (setq cb (_SelectBlockWithTag REV1B)) ) (vla-put-textstring cb (vla-get-textstring ca)) (and (setq da (_SelectBlockWithTag RDB1A)) (setq db (_SelectBlockWithTag RDB1B)) ) (vla-put-textstring db (vla-get-textstring da)) (princ) ) drawing.dwg

  20. So the problem im having is i have code that runs to show the offset of measured points to design points, unfortunately the code works by inserting one of 4 predefined blocks for NSEW, or one of 4 when in 2 directions; only showing orthogonal distances. These work by passing through the distance to the block tag, and then comparing the EW, and/or NS values to determine the correct arrow direction to insert the correct block. What i want is instead of using orthogonal distances, is to have an arrow block within these blocks, that changes the direction of the arrow, based on a bearing that you pass through. eg if the horizontal distance between 2 points is 25mm at a bearing of 45 degrees, then a tag is created as per normal with 25 and an arrow point 45 degrees. Any good ideas? I've looked in the forums and couldn't find anything to solve this. Attached is an image of what i have currently made, note the aligned one showing 130mm is kinda what i want, but that arrow is not dynamic, it just goes left or right and the whole block is just rotated to show the bearing. It makes for a messy plan and a lot of neck craning to present to a client
  21. Need a small help to modify a lisp. The lisp attached here is working, Normally command 'CN' allow me to place a "CRBLK" block with incremental number for ATT TAG "00" as i click where i wants.later when using command "FCRT" i will get all the attributes tag value and Coordinates in a individual separate Tables (As Field text). Just need some small modifications to add another Attribute in same block with value "IL=00" which i can edit later by clicking on it (attribute editor). and later when using command "FCRT", it'll also gives the output as ATT tag values then coordinates then Second ATT Tag Value individual separate Tables. The existing lisp is working good, just needs some small modification, Though its a long lisp codes and i have no idea on this.. Have attached a screenshot, DWG and Lisp file for reference..

  22. Good morning all, I am trying to create a linetype that uses a polyline/block to create a series of thicker arrows. I have written: *DIVERSION,DIVERSION DRAIN -----> -----> A,.982117,-.256835,[DIVERSION,DIVERSION.SHX,X=0,S=.25].977201 But it does not seem to work just comes out as a series of dashes. I have attached a few things that may help. Cheers Allison DIVERSION.lin DIVERSION.shp DIVERSION.shx
  23. Hi. I am generating a block using ENTMAKE, but I have noticed that the property "InsUnits (RO)" indicates "Unitless". The variable "INSUNITS of the document (drawing) is set to "6" for Meters, but when generating the Block the property is set as Unitless. How do I assign the property to the BLOCK as this is the INSUNITS variable? (defun ent-block (nameBlock pto-ins atrib-var / ) (entmake (list '(0 . "BLOCK") '(100 . "AcDbEntity") '(100 . "AcDbBlockBegin") '(8 . "0") (cons 2 nameBlock) (cons 10 pto-ins) (cons 70 (if atrib-var 2 0)) ) ) ) (defun makeBlockGMM (listaEntNames nameBlock pto-ins atrib-var / msg ciclo) (defun ciclo ( listaEntNames / X) (foreach X listaEntNames (entmake (entget X)) ) ) (if (vl-catch-all-error-p (setq resultado01 (vl-catch-all-apply 'ent-block (list nameBlock pto-ins atrib-var)))) (progn (prompt (setq msg (strcat "**ERROR en Cabecera, mensage de error: " (vl-catch-all-error-message resultado01)))) ) ) (if (and (not msg ) (vl-catch-all-error-p (setq resultado02 (vl-catch-all-apply 'ciclo (list listaEntNames))))) (progn (prompt (setq msg (strcat "**ERROR en creacion de entidades, mensage de error: " (vl-catch-all-error-message resultado02)))) ) ) (if (and (equal resultado1 nil) (equal resultado2 nil)) (progn (ent-endblock) ) ) ) (defun ent-endblock ( / ) (entmake (list '(0 . "ENDBLK") '(100 . "AcDbEntity") '(100 . "AcDbBlockEnd") '(8 . "0") ) ) ) Regards.
  24. I have a block with about 60 single-line text entities, 40 of which have a place holder character that needs to change based on how the block is used. For example, "~1a" and "~1b" need to change to "P1a" and "P1b", where "~" is the place holder and "P" is the letter for this 1 block. The next instance of the same block will need a different letter. This is not a good application for attributes. I found Lee Mac's LISP c:ReplaceBlockText in this thread using vlax-for, but it appears to work on the block definition and changes the text for every instance of the block in the drawing. I need this to work on 1 selected instance of the block. Any help is appreciated, even if it's a point in the right direction.
