  1. hi can anyone here help write a lisp routine that can be run project wide to hide/show attributes . The user must be given an option to select an object , write or select attribute name and also select multiple drawings from the project. I have a code that updates the attribute value , attaching that - Please help change that to hide/show attributes updateATTRIB.lsp
  2. Hello, I have created a table within AutoCAD. I have written some words in cell "A1", I would like to display the same words in another cell using an equation "=A1". When I type the "=A1" equation the cell displays "####" Is there anyway to make this work? possibly using fields? Thanks
  3. I've received a design for a new drainage network, however all the pipe segments have been modelled as 3D polyface mesh (I've attached a sample DWG). The network is very large and I don't want to have to try and manually trace new polylines. Rather than going back to the designer to ask them if they can provide me with 3D centrelines of the pipes, is it possible to extract this information easily in autocad? Any help would be greatly appreciated! 3D Drainage Polyface Mesh Example.dwg
  4. Hello, I was wondering if anyone has/ can whip up a LISP routine that selects any dimension (rotated, aligned, diametric, radial, ect) from the entire drawing (not just a selection) that has a "dim scale linear" value that is <> Not Equal to 1 I have been doing it in "qselect" then choosing the options but this is very time consuming. (Where it says "Rotated Dimension" I would like the command to check all dimension types at once, not just rotated) Thank-you kindly, Ola

  7. Hi Everyone, From few days I'm trying to make an auto lisp which can understand the difference between 2 different layers and calculate area according to that. Unfortunately I'm not getting proper results anyone can please help. I was trying to create the lisp in below steps. Step-1: After entering command user will select whole drawing in single selection Step-2: Lisp will select only object in Layer-1 & Layer-2 (Other layers objects will be ignored) Step-3: Lisp will calculated the area of Layer-1 & Layer-2 Step-4: Now it will Subtract the area of Layer-2 from Layer-1 Step-5: and paste it as Text.
  8. Hi! With the help of the autodesk forum I have this lisp that consecutively increments a numeric value in a specific field of OD, also copies the block name to another field of the same OD. This lisp assigns the internal consecutively when the field INTERNO_SENAL has a data type of character, can the same process be done when the type of the OD field is as internal? Having this lisp is it possible that the value of INTERNO_SENAL is also copied in the INTERNO attribute of the block? ADD_ID.lsp
  9. I found valuable lisp for auto creation block. I want to improve this lisp to following requirement * block selected object individually, not in one block thanks AUTO-BLOCK.LSP

  11. Hi all, I am trying to write a lisp that will create a DropDown list in Autocad. With the selection from the fields I want to execute different commands that I have defined before. (defun c:create_dropdown () (setq choise1 command1) (setq choise2 command2) (setq choise3 command3) (setq choise4 command4) (strcase (initget (getkword [choise1/choise2/choise3/choise4])))) )
  12. Hello Community! I have been researching this for some time, I am trying to know if it is possible through a routine (lisp) to transfer / copy the information from LT (link template associated with a database in access) to the OD (object data) as I show in the image. So i need a very specific Lisp/VLisp/VBA/Dotnet routine who asks for : -- The Link Template DB name -- Which DB fields are you interested for -- Which OD Table MAP to fill -- Which OD Fields MAP to create or to use (if already existing) -- Selecting objects -- Retain only objects which the correct parameters -- ACTION ... Copy Data to OD fields ... append DWG & MDB files as example. thanks for the help you can give me, greetings EJEMPLO.zip

    Wrong value of ExtMin

    I have received the attached drawing from one of my clients. (I have removed geometry to maintain confidentiality. But it retains the essence of problem that I have). I have to write VB/A program that extracts data from this drawing. For that I need to know the extents of the drawing. The system variable ExtMin shows a value of X (98331) which is greater than the X (92817) of min. point (left bottom corner of the border) of existing geometry. I have tried everything (purge, overkill, audit, recover) but can't find a way to correct the value of ExtMin. Assuming that this drawing is corrupt and can't be recovered, then I have another problem. How can I programatically find that the ExtMin value of this drawing is wrong and hence this drawing is corrupt. ExtMin Problem.dwg
  14. G'day all I'm working on and editing a mapping project from photogrammetry. I have a block which indicates a square manhole cover. (File is attached to this post) My project area has hundreds of these manholes and my client needs each of them scaled and rotated to fit the exact size of the manhole. I had been manually doing this with the help of an ECW image in the background. But the process is rather tedious and not all that accurate. My operators can pick up a three point string showing the height and length of the manhole. Some manholes are square and some are rectangular. I have a few lisp routines that get the block in there. The block insertion point comes in at the first plotted point as required. Is there any similar LISP that will insert the attached block dwg file at the first point collected and scale it based on the 2nd and third point whilst keeping the elevation heights? I've attached two dwg files... One is the block itself and one is a diagram with a better explanation. I've also added a screen shot of what is required. Any help would be appreciated Cheers guys Manhole.dwg BlockSample.dwg
  15. Good Day AllI've turned to forum advice and I really hope someone can help me.I have to create 13 wall panels that will be laser cut. The panel drawings were done in Inventor and I'm editing the flat pattern in AutoCAD. If you look at the attached images of one of these panels you will get the idea, each panel cut-out "pattern" must be randomly generated and I was hoping someone could give me some advice as doing this manually, by hand, is insane and after all we work on machines and machines can automate right!? I am also attaching a flat pattern of one of the panels (they all have different height and width dimensions too). Just as a side note I did try a scatter script but it doesn't give the appropriate result because if you look closely you will see the dashes are inline but randomly knocked out. I was thinking maybe a random dashed line script or procedure that can then be exploded to rectangular shapes for DXF export or a custom random hatch but I don't know how to do either. Hope I'm making sense. Thank you in advance.

    Hello, I am new in AutoCAD. I draw 1:1 floor plan, I draw 1m in real like 1 in autocad. Now I have to plot it in pdf as 1:50. How can I do that
  17. Hello! I have been getting suggestions and help from this forum for some time now, but have reached a point where I am currently at a loss. I am still relatively new to the topic of lisp and co, but I am trying to improve constantly. For my current problem, I am trying to select a block and insert a point into it. I have simplified my current lisp file into the function below so as not to go over the top. My problem is that I get back an empty selection set and thus can't execute the function from Lee Mac correctly. (defun TestFunction ( / ) (while (= ss NIL) (if (setq ss (ssget "_+.:S:E:L" '((0 . "INSERT")))) (progn (setq ent (ssname ss 0)) (setq Block (vla-item (vla-get-blocks (setq doc (vla-get-ActiveDocument (vlax-get-acad-object)))) (cdr (assoc 2 (entget (ssname ss 0)))))) (Insert_Point) ) ) ) ) (defun Insert_Point ( / ) ;; Block Einfügepunkt ermitteln (setq Message (strcat "\nEinfügepunkt wählen:")) (setq Pnt (getpoint Message)) (setq sel (ssadd)) (setq Point (vla-addpoint Block (vlax-3d-point Pnt))) (ssAdd (vlax-vla-object->ename Point) sel) ;; sel stays empty so the following line cant be executed properly (UpdateBlock doc ent sel) ) Many thanks for your help! Best regards Florian
  18. Hi I work in a company, people come to us with their plot registry, on which are the dimensions (north,east,south,west) and area of their plots. But there are no angles. For example, a plot of 25 * 10 meters with an area (according to the mathematical calculations) should be 250 square meters. But 244.95 is listed on the registry.My question is how do I quickly draw this plot (according to the registry) in AutoCAD? Is there any lisp for this?
  19. Good Afternoon, Everyone. I'm working on the Civil Drafting Project and I don't understand how to interpolate where the contour intervals cross the gridlines. I have drawn my grid with all of the values included, but I'm not understanding how to calculate the values. Could someone please assist me. I'm at a standstill. I would really appreciate it and be forever thankful!

    License Subscription Costs

    Has anyone on this forum started to get pushback from the money men regarding Autodesks move to subscriptions? We currently run mostly AutoCAD LT with a few copies of AEC pack from our Revit trial that never got downgraded. I went to the chairman to present Revit again as an option for moving the company forwards to now catch up with the rest of the industry and I got no further than the 5th slide (I started with the costings to avoid nasty shocks) and he shut the presentation down saying he isn't going to pay >£200k per year for software, up from £25k. Are any other companies looking at alternative CAD BIM software to Autodesk?

  22. Hello! I need some advice on AutoCAD! The question is: our organization has moved back to remote work. What version of the program would you recommend to install on a laptop, taking into account that we need to use 5 computers simultaneously with "WorkTime" and "Zoom".
  23. Hello everyone, The attached code that "Replace the text by block and transfer the value to the attribute" and the code is working. What I intend to do now and am not succeeding in doing is the following : 1) I noticed that, the block insertion point is being at the coordinate (Geometry --> Position X of variable T2B_Text). Is it possible to insert the block at the coordinate ( Text --> Text alignment X of variable T2B_Text)? (See image 1) 2) Is there any way to make sure that the total value of the variable "T2B_AttributeTag" is not all transferred to the block attribute? (See image 2) Example: T2B_AttributeTag = TO 1301-UZY-1826A Value of Block attribute (T2B_Block) = 1301-UZY-1826A (Accurate this way) Obs : The Txt file is by (DannyNL), taken from the AutoCad forum.

  24. Hello fellow Autocad users, I've recently recieved a messy 3d model (consisting of various geometry types) in order to draw section plans from them. First I tried to generate a floorplan with Autocads "Generate Section/Elevation" tool, thus recieving the projection as intelligent object. In order to draw the plans cleanly from the messy projection I want to transform the projection into a linegrafic, but I can't find a way to edit the projections without crashing Autocad. I also can't use flatshot since the projection is not a Brep. Is there any way to transform the projection into a line grafik, or another alternative to generate cross sections? I've attached an image to depict the problem (I use a german version of AutoCad architecture 2020). Thank you in advance!
  25. Are there any resources I can take a look at to find all different types of electric transmission poles in autocad.
