  1. Many a times it requires to show the same block with different angle and scale. Rotating each block to a required angle, and scaling it as required will take a lot of time so can we Insert Block in-between two Points in the angle and scale of points selection using Autolisp . I am using AutoCAD 2004. Thank You !
  2. I made a Block Library with 4 objects in it, which I proceeded to insert into a drawing. However, only 2/4 of the objects inserted. The layers are not frozen, locked, or invisible. I've attached two screenshots. Please help me! I've been messing with this for hours.
  3. Hi All, I hope i have put this in the right section of the forum. Introduction to my Queries: I am working on a 2D housing layout, which has multiple houses, roads, paths and trees, ect. For the record I use Blocks for the houses and within each block contains details such as House Name, Engineering Details (Rain water Pipe, Soil Vent pipe), Hatch Colour, roof line and entrance indication. The problem: Quite often I will have to mirror and rotate the houses to give variation for the elevations and general design of the layout. Now the problem I have, is when using the mirror
  4. Does anyone know how to update a block already present in a drawing with a block pasted from another drawing. I cannot use insert block with a file named the same as the block in the current drawing because the pasted block (of the same name) contains a visibility parameter that if I explode before inserting loses the parameters. If I insert the same named block within a same named file to the current drawing the drawing holds onto the original block because it is within a block. Am I making sense.... I am hoping there is a work-around this to update the block.
  5. Right now I have 15,000 drawings that use letters instead of symbols, an artifact of a now defunct CAD software that translated the letters into symbols. I'd like to remake this in AutoCAD by inserting blocks at the location of those letters. I cannot find instructions on how to do this anywhere, and I need to add the following things to my code: 1 - Insert a set of blocks from another drawing. 2 - Select a specific letter from text in a specific layer in code 3 - Insert one of the newly inserted blocks at the insertion point of the letter 4 - Delete the character as it is no longe
  6. I'm having trouble finishing this LISP. Can anyone help me out. The command line is telling me the command I'm entering 'roomtag' is unknown. It's probably something little but I can't seem to figure it out. Please help out if you can. Thanks! ;;;Place Room Tag in Middle of Room and Auto Fill 'x' and 'y' Attribute Values (defun c:RoomTag (/ pt1 pt3 rx ry pt5) (initget 1) (setq pt1 (getpoint "\nFirst Corner: ")) (initget 1) (setq pt3 (getcorner "\nOpposite Corner: ")) (setq rx (abs (- (car pt3)(car pt1)))) (setq ry (abs (- (cadr pt3)(cadr pt1)))) (setq pt5 ((+ rx pt1) (- ry pt3))) (c
  7. In this portion of a continuing program I'm putting together, a 4' block is inserted at a user point at a defined angle, then it is again inserted but this time 4' away at the same angle so that the two blocks form an 8' line. This is continued until the user stops the program. However, when the second block is inserted, it is rotated correctly but inserted somewhere north of where it is supposed to be. Obviously my polar calc or something is off: (defun c:blockinsert () ; ; ; ;part 5 of overall program ; ; (setq p1 (getpoint "\nSELECT POINT: "));user inputs first point (setq p2 (getpoi
