hello, I'm frequently placing metal anchors for foundations. To do this i align those on the center lines. I've found a LISP what does what i need, creating the center lines of the rectangles. Can i add some code so i can select multiple polylines? Thanks in advance. CenterCross.lsp
Incognito Cube posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceGood afternoon all, if this belongs in management and output please move it. I couldn't figure which was more fitting of a sub category. I've done this in the past, maybe a year ago or so but only once so I can't remember, but I know it can be done. Maybe I'm not using the correct keywords in my searches to refresh my memort, but I've been unable to find a solution to the wall I've hit. I'll try to keep it as simple as possible and can elaborate as needed. The quickest and simplest question I can ask about my issue is: How can I generate a simple text file readout of the geometry of a right-of-way centerline? I've currently got it configured as two polylines (one poly for each street, the second beginning off of a PI of the first street). I've never used corridors, alignments, or feature lines and from what I've been reading those won't provide me with what I want. My constriction at this point is that I cannot modify the existing linework which is what the three options listed in the previous sentence will try to do if not set up properly (from what I'm comprehending on forums and by playing around with them, anyway). I just need a readout of the Bearing/Distance on the line segments, and the Radius, Delta, Arc Length, Chord Bearing, and Chord Distance of the curve segments starting at a definable endpoint and running the course of the polyline (Centerline). I've attached an example of the generic format of the Parcel Reports that we use to create our geometry checks (In-house and for the County/Muni) that I would like to follow for the centerline report I'm trying to create. I can do without the Northing and Easting, though. At this point, it would have been faster for me to take this format and hand type in the information to just get this out. Of course, that leaves scrivener's errors as a possibility and is not useful in larger jobs. This particular centerline is only about 2,187ft long with maybe only 14-18 vertices. Any help will be appreciated. PARCEL REPORT FORMAT EXAMPLE.pdf
I was wondering if there is any easier way to draw center line for a circle, i usually draw 2 construction lines perpendicular to each other and trim or draw a outer reference circle and extend the line as this image below. the yellow lines showed as continue I have to set LTS so the center line show properly. thanks.
is there a good way to "snap" connect centerlines in a drawing, or a way to trim or extend them to the next centerline. There doesn't seem to be a good quick way in Inventor 2011 - weird - am I missing something my scenario is - I have a 90 degree elbow with some straight tangent ends- to which I've inserted centerlines to the elbow and thru the straight sections. I need to dimension from the center point, on the backside of the 90deg arc, to the face of the straight end. I can do that, but I have to use "intersect" for the centerlines instead of just having them "intersected" already
