Showing results for tags 'add text footage'.
ORgrown posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLAutoCAD Map5 Hoping for a routine (or two or three) that will: 1. Convert all Lines/LWPOLYLINES/etc to Plines (no object data on the layers I need converted) 2. BREAK each Pline at the Insertion points of EVERY instance of two different blocks that are inserted along the lines. 3. Insert TEXT or MText (ROMANS 8' on layer FTGS) for each PLINE (actual footage) - ROTATED parallel to line & ~7' to one side of the line (at this point I can see I'll have to edit to move a number of footages to the opposite side of a line, but better than a prompt to place each footage when I have over 2500 instances). Ultimately, I need exact footages captured between each of the different blocks (S-Vaults & S-Handholes only - NOT S-UGTic). Many of the lines run through these blocks without breaking. Lines should not break at S-UGTic blocks. Sample DWG attached. My sample will already show footages, but I'm finding they are not always accurate - being as little as 1' off to over 100' off. Because not all the lines are broken, I don't know how the footages were determined...
