  1. Hi all - I created a lightweight polyline by filleting two straight polylines to create 1 polyline that contains an arc. I would like to convert the arc into a series of straight polylines that mimic the original shape of the arc, while not disturbing the straight parts of the polyline. I found a .lsp routine that does this perfectly, but it only works for the older heavyweight polylines. Can anyone help modify this routine so it works for lightweight polylines or provide another suggestion? Id rather not convert to heavyweight, use the routine, and convert back to lightweight. Thanks so much! Here is the code: ;;;Translate plines w/ arcs to plines w/ mult. straight segments for use ;;;with DTM TIN's for contouring.

  2. Hello, I'm working on a project that requires a lot of specific polyline stationing. I'm using Map 3D 2008 with modules for Surveying/Planning adjusted for standards in my country, and among all tools I have one for stationing polyline. It works in these steps: - select polyline - starting station (example: 0+000.00) - starting station number (integer value as sufix for labeling stations, example: PR 1, PR 2....) - distance between profiles Result of this can be seen in attached file STATIONIG.dwg, but basicaly I get profile on defined distances and on every vertex. What I need for current project is to label first point, last point and possibly one or two more on click. Example is in attached file SPEC_STATIONING.dwg As you can conclude I can get desired result by stationing polyline with current tools and then deleting excessive stations. However, I have nearly 850 short (up to 150-200 m) polylines, so deleting them would consume big chunk of time. I have found couple lisps for stationing poyline, but none of them fits. Honestly I thought there has to be some lisp to deal this with great detail since this is common operation in planing. I know C3D does this perfectly, but sometimes you need quick solution, not have to deal with alignments and other elements. Stationing line has the following elements (picture below): 1) polyline to be stationed 2) starting station (in meters) 3) station distance format (0+00.00, 0+000.00 ...) 4) station label (prefix, sufix and starting number) 5) left and right line (length) * Items 3,4(prefix and suffix, not starting number) and 5 could be hardcoded, since they would always be the same in every country. Note: angle of stationig line and text should be: - perpendicular to polyline start/end segment on first and and last polyline point - perpendicular to polyline if station is drawn on segment (not vertex) - half of exterior/interior angle on every other vertex I believe this lisp would be useful to a lot of people in surveying/planning.

  3. Dear friends, how long I was here!... I need some help, if someone knows any lisp to convert Lines in 3D to 3D Polylines. The goal about it is to do a Pipeline tubes in 3D way. Thanks a lot for any help. CafeJr...
  4. Hello, I recently discovered the potential in acad with lisps, and first of all I want to thank all the people sharing their knowledge (specific thanks to Tharwat and GC gile)! I am completely ignorant regarding what seems like programming here, but I am very willing to try and learn (allready succeeded in changing a parameter in a lisp all by myself!) The facts are: I have lots of closed 2d polylines (or lwpolylines, doesn't really matter because I have learned how to turn my polys into lwpolys). I have to extract their area, layer and coordinates, in a way that each polyline's data can be identified in the resulting file. I started by researching a way to automatically name the polylines, not much luck, so I am determined to enter numbers manually in the hyperlink field for each polyline. I have also found a lisp that extracts hyperlink, layer and area for multiple polys at once, which is a great first step (as a newbie I am not sure if I can post the link here). What now remains is to extract each poly’s coordinates together with its hyperlink. Do you think it is doable to invent a routine and achieve this for many polylines at once? Alternatively I will have to list and copy paste the coords for each polyline separately... for 400 polylines ... and then again in another similar dwg... etc. Sorry for the large thread, I hope I explained properly – and sorry if the answer already exists somewhere, I did my best to find it but didn’t (I did find quite some lisps to export coords, without separation per polyline and without hyperlink. Maybe someone experienced could alter these to include the extra data, but this is not my case…) Many thanks in advance to all the helpfull inlightened people here, Maria
  5. Hello, I am searching for a lisp that can export the lengths of all selected polylines and export them to either Excel or an AutoCad table. I have found and tested around 20 lisps but so far cannot find the right one. There were only 2 that look promising, maybe they could be modified? One was by Lee Mac and the other Jimmy Bergmark. I can post the 2 Lisp if needed. The lisp would need to have you select multiple polylines and give the total lengths of each polyline in the order that they were selected in. Then the data would either appear on an AutoCad table or Excel. Thanks for any help that can be provided.
  6. Hopefully I am just unaware of a setting or method for doing this but so far the field command is handy but missing something. Associative updates. When a polyline is drawn and used for calculating the area the field command does a quick job of extracting that info into a field text element. Problem is when that polyline boundary is changed the "field text" that was established previously does not update. Is this even possible or am I S.O.L.?
  7. Hi i required a lisp to draw a poly line along with 2 closed poly lines. If i pick 2 vertexes on 2 polygons, 1 new poly line should be created between these two points along with polygon walls. can any body help. Please refer screen shot for your reference thanks, Prasad

  13. Hello there, Merry Christmas! I am new in LISP and I don't know where to start from. For clarity, please refer to the snapshot provided. I am not quite familiar with AutoCAD terminology though, but I'll try to explain my problem clear. Basically, we have polylines and points having their coordinates (these small blue rectangulars). What we need to do is: Find the closest on the polyline from the "blue rectangular" Create the vertex on THAT point Export to Excel files the following parameters: number, Coordinates of each vertex, distances between them, '1' if the line contains newly-created vertex The output files are expected to look like: 1.

  14. Hello, there, I am trying to find a LISP routine which will find the closest point on a polyline from a selected block reference. This routine finds the closest distance between two objects by selecting both objects, but it does not seem to work with block reference. After it finds the closest point, how to create a new vertex on that point? Thank you in advance Best wishes, Jes G
  15. Hello everyone. This is my first time posting but i have enjoyed a lot of your great work. I use a lot a field about object/polyline/length - decimal 0 (copy it to different polylines and than get their lenghth) and i am tired of changing object from dialogbox. Is there an easy way (lisp or other) to change the object directly and get its length:):)
  16. Hello guys, Someone knows if's possible I fill up one area, as the picture, with one polyline oriented (or as a guided line), informing the lisp code the initial point, the radius of return line, and the space limits (as the limits line), horizontal or vertical to guide the lines until the whole area it's completely filled up?... Thanks in advance...
  17. Hello, I'm using Lee Mac cad lisp program "PolyInfo V 1.3." for exporting polylines vertex coordinates. But for full work joy I need some modifications. URL for program: http://www.lee-mac.com/polyinfo.html URL for code: http://www.lee-mac.com/lisp/html/PolyInfoV1-3.html As you saw the program exports a lot of information about the polyline. So i want to modify the code that will export just polyline start vertex points x and y coords in two columns ( my cad version information exports to txt file ). The result should look like this: ________________________________ Polyline starts points x 649542.45 649542.35 649542.28 Polyline starts points y 495232.54 495232.23 495232.41 ________________________________ Can someone help to figure out which part of code I must to modify to get the result i want? Please.
  18. (Here is a link to the original post I am referencing) Hi Guys, I found this awesome lisp by Renderman/Black Box and I have run it a few times and it worked great those times. Then I tried to run it to convert maybe 20 wipeouts at once and a bunch of them disappeared. I would really like to be able to use this one time once I finish drawing all the wipeouts and not after everyone, but I also don't want to risk some failing to convert and having to redraw a bunch of them. Does anyone see anything that would cause these errors? ;;;--------------------------------------------------------------------; ;;; c:WIPEOUT->REGION ;;; Courtesy of RenderMan, CADTutor.net ;;;--------------------------------------------------------------------; ;;; Description: ;;; Convert all wipeouts within a given drawing to regions. ;;;--------------------------------------------------------------------; ;;; Exit function: (defun WIPEOUT->REGION:Exit (msg) (cond ((not msg)) ; Normal exit ((member msg '("Function cancelled" "quit / exit abort"))) ; <esc> or (quit) ((princ (strcat "\n <!> Error: " msg " <!> ")))) ; Fatal error, display it (WIPEOUT->REGION:Quit)) ;;;--------------------------------------------------------------------; ;;; Quit function: (defun WIPEOUT->REGION:Quit () (setvar 'cmdecho *oldCmdecho*) (setq *oldCmdecho* nil) (setq *error* *oldError* *oldError* nil) (vla-endundomark *activeDoc*) (princ)) ;;;--------------------------------------------------------------------; ;;; Main function: (defun c:WIPEOUT->REGION (/ ss) (vl-load-com) (vla-startundomark (cond (*activeDoc*) ((setq *activeDoc* (vla-get-activedocument (vlax-get-acad-object)))))) ;; Error checking (setq *oldError* *error* *error* WIPEOUT->REGION:Exit) (setq *oldCmdecho* (getvar 'cmdecho)) (setvar 'cmdecho 0) ;; Main code (if (and (setq ss (ssget "_x" '((0 .

  19. I am hoping this will be a simple fix, but searching for the answer has turned up nothing. If I offset a self-intersecting polyline, it trims the offset anywhere that it crosses the original polyline. I am looking for a way for the offset to continue through self intersections untrimmed. My hope is that the self-trimming is a "feature", and that there is a way to turn it off, perhaps through a system variable or something. If not, the only way I can think to fix it is to write my own custom offset which doesn't sound very efficient. ps. Although I'm posting this in the general autocad area, I'm open to solutions that require autolisp. The reason I'm looking for this answer is to be used in an automated routine once I get past this hurdle. ***edit*** I found this thread , but it doesn't give a solution (aside from "use an ancient version on AutoCAD").
  20. Dear folks, There is an idea to get things easier in my workflow but I need check if it is possible or not. There are over 100 closed polyline objects on the model and each has a unique ID written in its Hyperlink value (like X_D_YYYY) And each of these polylines has a block placed in the enclosing area with an attribute. My aim is to get the Hyperlink from enclosing polyline and populate the block attribute with that value. You may find an example as DWG at the attachment. Regards. get-Enclosing-polyline-data.dwg

    Recognize multi-object shape

    Hi, I converted a pdf file into dwg. In this new file a point has become a group of 2D polyline and not a sigle entity. This conversion is necessary because I have to work in autocad. My problem is that I have to search in this dwg all of this "points" and write a text next to. Is possible to write a VBA program for autocad able to do this? If the point was a single point, it wouldn't be a problem, but in this case...I dont' know!
  22. Hi, Can anyone help me to write a lisp function to sort the points (assume the intersection points) on a polyline? With my code, I have a polyline object and a set of intersection points on it. I need to calculate the cumulative distance between those points and vertex points consecutively. Thanks,
  23. So I'm having an issue joining some polylines I have in order to make a dimer shape (two circles meeting at one point, with two lines connecting them). I started by making the circles, followed by two lines extending from circle to circle. I then trimmed the lines to get the attached geometry. However, I cannot join the shape, and was wondering how this could be done. Thanks! Dimer_Help.dwg
  24. While running in Line command I'm able to snap along the way, snap my running line to itself at each sub prompt: "Specify next point or..." When I try this with the Polyline command, while running polyline at each sub prompt: "Specify next point or..." no snap can be acknowledged. My Polyline won't snap to itself while running toward successive points. All Object Snaps are checked in it's dialog box. Alignment Point Acquisition is set to Automatic. Is there another setting or a system variable that needs to be toggled, maybe something related specifically to Polylines?
  25. Hello everyone, I work with a glazing company and am trying to write an AutoLISP command that will automate a large part of our job by dimensioning glass panels with holes and cutout in the format that our supplier prefers. I will attach a photo here to show what I have done so far. The rectangle on the left shows what I would like the dimensions to look like. The rectangle on the right shows what my LISP routine currently does. I am having trouble writing the logic to dimension it in the way that I want. Rules it should follow are: 1) dimensions strings should be made to the corner nearest to the hole 2) if two holes are in-line, the dimension should pass through the closer hole 3) if two dimensions go to the same corner, they should stack at 3" intervals (TYP. offset set for DIMBASELINE) 4) Dimension strings should always be 3" behind the larger dimension above them (See the 5" measure at the top left) However, these rules only hold true for the "rectangle" shape option. In the final version of the routine, I am looking to have an easily expandable list of rules that I can modify and tweak per-shape. I have attached a test drawing and the current version of my LISP routine below. The code for dimensioning rules on the rectangle is found on lines 436-494. Any help figuring this out would be much appreciated. Thank you! Drawing File: autodimtest.dwg Current LISP: autoDim.lsp
