S43MG posted a topic in AutoCAD 3D Modelling & RenderingSo recently we got few assignments and we were given the given the video on how to like make 3D object and select it and a new page called layout is formed where all the views like top, front, side and isometric view can be displayed for the selected object. I have already set the Units and limits which is in mm and 297 x 210 mm and text size to 5, but when I am adding text in the layout which is in inches I believe its way too big ofcourse but the same thing when my Sir/Professor did there wasn't a problem but it could be that the page layout was already set in mm which I did later and the text size problem was fixed but now the problem was that the dotted lines suppose for a cube the one which supposed to be on other side are like really small and when I convert it to pdf form I am not able to see it which wasn't the case when my Sir did it and also I did not have the page border which I was having when the page layout was in inches. So if anyone knows how I can fix/set the layout settings/options correctly for the page layout/Base please let me know, it would be great if I can get reply quickly cause I have to complete these assignments as soon as possible.
Hello I tried several ways to let 2 points (cirlces, see image below) following a drawing path (polyline). I tried it with arraypath etc. It doesn't work and I don't find any solution for this problem . Can somebody help me? I work with Autocad 2013. The two circles must follow the polylinepath always with the same distance between the circles. It's like a train or tram movement. The user must be able to enter a certain distance between the objects that has to be copied and the user must also be able to chose how many times it has to be copied. Please, does anyone know a solution? Thx in advance .
ColinHolloway posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLHi All Sorry this is a re-post. I couldn't work out how to move a post to the correct area. I need to read the Insbase value of an unopened drawing using ObjectDBX. I have already written code that can extract attributes and re-path xref's so the method of opening the drawing database is known. What I need to know is the property name of the Base or Insbase in Modelspace of a drawing. I have opened the drawing database as variable dbxdoc and using (vlax-dump-object (vla-get-ModelSpace dbxdoc)) I get: ; IAcadModelSpace: A special Block object containing all model space entities ; Property values: ; Application (RO) = Exception occurred ; BlockScaling = 0 ; Comments = "" ; Count (RO) = 96 ; Document (RO) = # ; Explodable = -1 ; Handle (RO) = "2" ; HasExtensionDictionary (RO) = -1 ; IsDynamicBlock (RO) = 0 ; IsLayout (RO) = -1 ; IsXRef (RO) = 0 ; Layout (RO) = # ; Name = "*MODEL_SPACE" ; ObjectID (RO) = 55 ; ObjectID32 (RO) = 55 ; ObjectName (RO) = "AcDbBlockTableRecord" ; Origin = (0.0 0.0 0.0) ; OwnerID (RO) = 56 ; OwnerID32 (RO) = 56 ; Path = AutoCAD.Application: Not applicable ; Units = 0 ; XRefDatabase (RO) = AutoCAD.Application: No database The property Origin is NOT the base for this drawing as the insbase is: Command: insbase Enter new value for INSBASE : The value for insbase must be accessable in the database somewhere but it is eluding me at this time. Thanks in advance for any responses, Colin
