  1. My boss may have just asked for the impossible, but he wants a lisp to be able to window select multiple text then window select lines near the text, and have the text align to the line or polyline that is closest to the text. I have something that allows me to pick a line then a text, but I have no idea how to do this. Any help is greatly appreciated, this is way above my ability. The attached pictures show before and after.
  2. Hello everyone, is there anyone who have lisp routine for drawing clothoides (spirals) between two arcs or "S" curve and who is willing to share it? I hope so that is not to much to ask for. Best Regards!
  3. Hello, After a sidestep to Clojure, of course back to AutoLisp. I have quite some exeperience with AutoLisp and on and off I worked with it for almost 20 years now. (Auto)Lisp is known amongst AutoCAD users but further on, the whole lisp-thing doesn't ring a bell with most programmers that I meet. They work with SQL, HTML, XHTML, Java, C# or maybe (V)BA. I stayed interested in Lisp, although limited to AutoLisp. Recently. I discovered that there is a new Lisp called Clojure that is becoming big in the programming world. Possibly due to the fact that it translates to Java or javascript before anything is executed. But this aside. I learned that Clojure is first class because it is capable of accepting a function as a parameter and clojure functions can produce functions. There's a whole lot more to be discoverd about this great language but I leave that to the reader. The subject 'Clojure' is easily found on the web. By taking this interest in Clojure I learned a lot about AutoLisp too. On this page at the subject of 'Closures' halfway the page, there is an example showing how a function is produced in Clojure. Realy, it took me quite some time to grasp it. After that I wanted to know if this could be done with AutoLisp as well. After trials with defun-q-list-set/ref (which also work) I came up with the following. Hart of the solution is (eval (append '(lambda . . Is it the best way to do this? I don't know. Is it useful? I doubt it but see below. Is it interesting? Highly (for me!) (defun messenger-builder (greeting) (setq greeting (strcat "\n" greeting " ")) (eval (append '(lambda (who)) (list (list 'princ (list 'strcat greeting 'who)) '(princ))))) (setq hello-er (messenger-builder "Hello") goodbye-er (messenger-builder "Goodbye")) (defun c:greet_the_world () (hello-er "World!")) (defun c:say_goodbye () (goodbye-er "Everyone!!")) AutoLisp does a great job in AutoCAD. Perfect, but as a Lisp it is less thoroughly designed than Clojure. This shows off in the example above. Clojure handles the subject of producing functions easier. Maybe my example is ill-constructed. I could not find a better solution. Question also is, can we think of any usufull application of this in AutoCAD. Although I took another route in the example, the designated functions for this are (I think) defun-q-list-set/ref. I suppose they are there for a reaon. Or is it all limited to the s::startup example?
  4. Hello, I would apprecite some reactions on the following tools that I made. Reading about Clojure I came across functionality that is not standard available in AutoLisp. After some thinking I programmed it myself. First 2 functions which do what they are supposed to do: (defun even? (n) (and (= (type n) 'INT) (= (rem n 2) 0))) (defun odd? (n) (and (= (type n) 'INT) (/= (rem n 2) 0))) The questionmark in the functionname seems appropriate. So what to do when you want to filter a list of integers against one of these functions? I constructed the following: (defun filter (f l / a) (foreach i l (if (apply f (list i)) (setq a (append a (list i))))) a) To get you started use the following two commands: (defun c:etest () (filter 'even? (list -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5))) (defun c:otest () (filter 'odd? (list -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5))) Although short already I wonder if the filter routine could be made more elegant/more logical. One can extend the library with all kinds of name? functions, provided that return T or nil on every call. The questionmark and the name 'filter' are used for logic readability. Try to make a functon that returns T if a value is of type 'STR, otherwise nil. Next use it with the filter function. It's fun and would like to see the variations that you come up with. Regards, André

  6. So I've been at this Lisp Routine for a little while now. Done a lot of searching and researching. I'm almost at the finish line and I need some help with the last few steps. Or at least, the next to last step. So the ultimate goal here is to use our column grid to generate an indicator at intersections. Grid is created more or less by hand so it will always vary. I decided to use the method of placing blocks with attributes at selected column lines' intersections. I've taken care of selection issues of DTEXT vs MTEXT and assigning LINE objects with said TEXT objects. I've whittled down what I would call the big issues except for one. My final result has been a list of "pairs" like this example: (((-2376.0 -504.001 0.0) L) ((-2376.0 -504.001 0.0) ((-2016.0 -504.001 0.0) L) ((-2016.0 -504.001 0.0) 7.1)...) The first part of each item is a point list followed by the corresponding text/string to be used for the block attributes. Problem is I need to combine the items with the same point so that each item will be as follows (((-2376.0 -504.001 0.0) 8 L) ((-2016.0 -504.001 0.0) 7.1 L)...). Now I believe I can workout the order in which they are listed to suit my purposes, but I'm having trouble just combining the two strings with the same point. After this hurdle, I'll need to insert the block WITH those strings filling in the attributes, but I believe I can figure that part out. I've attached a drawing with a sample grid and the lisp routine I've pieced together so far. Here's the main portion of the code in case that's all someone needs: (defun c:setupint (/ mspc ss_txt ss_lines pntlst grdlst attlst i_pnt i_grd ob_pnt ob_grd pnt1 pnt2 pnt3 ob_strg blk) (setq mspc (vla-get-ModelSpace (vla-get-ActiveDocument (vlax-get-acad-object)))) (if (and (princ "\nSelect Grid Text: ") (setq ss_txt (ssget '((0 . "TEXT,MTEXT")))) (princ "\nSelect Grid Lines: ") (setq ss_lines (ssget '((0 . "LINE")))) (setq pntlst (SF:sortyx (LM:intersectionsinset ss_lines))) (setq grdlst (MT:GrdAcList ss_lines ss_txt)) ) (repeat (setq i_pnt (length pntlst)) (setq ob_pnt (nth (setq i_pnt (1- i_pnt)) pntlst)) (repeat (setq i_grd (length grdlst)) (setq ob_grd (nth (setq i_grd (1- i_grd)) grdlst) pnt1 ob_pnt pnt2 (vlax-curve-getStartPoint (cadr ob_grd)) pnt3 (vlax-curve-getEndPoint (cadr ob_grd)) ob_strg (car ob_grd) ) (if (LM:Collinear-p pnt1 pnt2 pnt3) (setq attlst (cons (list ob_pnt ob_strg) attlst)) ;list of text with corresponding point ) ) ;end repeat grd ) ;end repeat pnt ) (setq blk "setupint") (princ attlst) ;Test Print of list ;;; (foreach itm attlst ;;; (setq p (list (nth 0 (car itm)) (nth 1 (car itm)) (nth 2 (car itm)))) ;;; (princ p) ;;; (vla-insertblock mspc (vlax-3D-point p) blk 1.0 1.0 1.0 0) ;;; ) ) (vl-load-com) (princ) SETUP TEST.dwg setupintV2.lsp
  7. I want to change attribute text in title blocks, calling the block by the block name, not selecting the block, looping thru all the layout tabs. The title block will have the same name on each layout. My titleblock is named TITLEBLOCK30x42, with 2 attributes SHEET-TITLE and SHEET-DESCRIPTION. This thread talks about doing the same thing. None of the small generic code posted in that thread works for me. https://www.cadtutor.net/forum/topic/63734-lisp-code-to-select-block-in-layouts-and-update-attributes/
  8. 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?
  9. Hello guys! New to the forum but have been looking at this forum for help for a few years now and has been very helpful for my auto cad education and career! I have this lisp routine that creates a pline in each side of the original pline to create this stormwater pipe. I've been trying to figure out how I can start the offset from the bottom line instead of the middle pline to no avail. Is there anyone that help me with this?

  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.

    Draw circles

    Hi, this is my first post. I am trying to draw five circles, one in the centre (x=0, y=0) and the other four, located in each quadrant of circle located in (0,0). I have written the script below but, I does not work. The circles with negative coordinates are drawn on top of the other with positive coordinates. I do not understand, why is this behavior, if you know please let me know. (defun C:he () (setq r 10.0) (command "circle" (list 0 0) r "") (command "circle" (list 5 0) r "") (command "circle" (list -5 0) r "") (command "circle" (list 0 5) r "") (command "circle" (list 0 -5) r "") ) Thanks
  13. Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and new to programming with lisp - please be kind.... The code I am writing will draw a 3dPolyline from a specific point to another point (usually with a lower z coordinate), the polyline will then be converted to a spline, a circle will be drawn at the start of the 3dPolyline and extruded along the spline to form a "curved tube". The intention is to use this as a flexible duct from a "spigot" on an A/C duct to a ceiling diffuser. The 3dPoly has to be perpendicular to the start point and end point for obvious reasons - see intentional misalignment picture. Below a portion of the unfinished code to select the start point, select the endpoint, then it must start drawing the 3dpoly from the start point, get a variable number of user input points (in order to define the initial direction and plane) and general path of the flexible duct. The end point of the 3dpoly is already defined with the initial selection of the "Endpoint on Diffuser" although the 2nd last point has to be mathematically determined considering the plane must be perpendicular to the end point. So - after selecting say 3 or 4 user defined points along the path, I want to be able to press enter, and the code must then calculate the 2nd last point and continue drawing the 3dpoly from the last picked point, to the calculated 2nd last point and then to the endpoint. Generally one has to be mindful that the curve of the tube cannot have a "sharp bend" - smooth curves are ideal for the airflow. The diameter of the tube will also change depending on the specific size requirements. Attached a small drawing and picture to show the intent. The crux of my problem: I cannot figure out how to start the 3dpoly command, make it pick the start of the line, then hand over to the user to continue picking 4 or 5 points, press enter, and then continue drawing the 3dpoly with calculated numbers? Would really appreciate some guidance. Maybe use of cmdactive? I really do not know enough to figure this one out. (defun C:Flex250 () (command "_.layer" "_thaw" "HVAC Flex" "_make" "HVAC Flex" "") (setq Prev_OM (getvar "OSMODE")) (setvar "OSMODE" 8) (setq StartPoint (getpoint "\nEnter Start Point on Duct Spigot : ")) (setq EndPoint (getpoint "\nEnter End Point on Diffuser : ")) (setq Z0 (caddr EndPoint)) (setq Z1 (+ (caddr EndPoint) 50)) (setq Z2 (+ (caddr EndPoint) 150)) (setq pt0 EndPoint) (setq pt1 (list (car EndPoint) (cadr EndPoint) Z1)) (setq pt2 (list (car EndPoint) (cadr EndPoint) Z2)) (SetVar "Elevation" (princ (caddr StartPoint))) (command ".3DPoly" (princ Startpoint) (getpoint "\nNext point : ") pt2 pt1 pt0) ) Then a last question - is there a way to ensure the spline's start and finish points are 100% perpendicular to the planes they connect to?

  15. Dear Team member, I have more number of BOQ table in Auto Cad. Need to export that table and text to excel in editable format. Can anyone help and share the lisp for export cad text / table in excel. Thanks. Mohan
  16. I work for a glazing company where we do all our glass sizing manually and am looking for a way to do it automatically. I am not very knowledgeable in Lisp. So we have a block we use to put the sizes into. I was wondering if it is possible for a lisp to read the size of a rectangle that has the block inside of it and put dimensions into the specified area. The block also has multiple Visibility's to fit in different places. There is also multiple visibility's for the reason that I made it for multiple people with different preferences. (See dwg. file below for block). Is this at all possible? Callout_GL.dwg
  17. Hi, I need help. My AutoLISP works well in DWG To PDF but it comes out 1 file per 1 DWG. I want it to be the only PDF file. Can somebody help me with something? (I can't use third party programs) Thank you for your help. The examples are in my attachments. My_Plot.LSP Test.dwg
  18. I can convert my raw AutoLISP (.lsp) codes into Visual Lisp (.VLX) and .FAS application using AutoCAD VLISP IDE. I was looking into Autodesk App Store and downloaded some of the free applications. It was .msi. That means it will install directly on Windows and link-up with installed AutoCAD. I am very new in the App Store. Could you please help me to understand to convert my .lsp or .vlx or .fas into .msi? Thanks.

  21. Dear all, I have lisp dcl and data files working together to draw steel sections. I have done all the sections modified to indian standards originally it was written for british standards and it is free of copy rights. Since the author has changed to catia 3 dacades before. Please find attached images of error, dialog box and lisp files,data files and dcl files. This may looks like a big job. If any lisp expert available he can do it seconds. As I have done whole lot of things with minimum lisp knowledge.

  22. 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
  23. Im beginner, I have this: (setq p1 (getpoint "\nPunto Inicial:")) (setq p2 (polar p1 (* 1.5 pi) 0.5)) (entmakex (list '(0 . "line") (cons 10 p1) (cons 11 p2) '(62 . 2))) So, the line I drawn is the yellow one below in the image. And, the text I want put is the magenta one. how can I do this? Thanks for your help
  24. Im a begginer, I drawn a line in autolisp with this "code": (setq p1 (getpoint "\nPunto Inicial:")) (setq p2 (polar p1 (* 1.5 pi) 0.18)) (command "line" p1 p2 "") but, how can I change the color of this line?? For example I want yellow Thanks for your help.
  25. Hey guys, I'm looking to assign a custom property to a variable and I have no idea how to do it. In the 0 custom prop I put a testvalue Here is the code I have so far: (vl-load-com) (defun c:test (/) (setq acadObject (vlax-get-Acad-Object) acadDocument (vla-get-Activedocument acadObject) ;; set existing custom properties to dProps dProps (vlax-get-property acadDocument 'Summaryinfo) ) ;; get the value at the specifed index in the dProps and assign it to location (vla-GetCustomByIndex dProps 0 "IMPCSVLOC" location) ) I can't find any documentation on the "vla-GetCustomByIndex" so I don't really know how to use tbh. I've attached a file that has the custom property setup. All insight and help is appreciated. Thanks, JT testfile.dwg
