Lisp Routine to make boundaries of selected objects
xxfaxx posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLHello I am new in this website. By new i mean it is the first time i make an account. I have been visiting this website for around 3 or 4 (maybe 5) years. I dont remember. After using autocad for over 8 years (starting in with autocad 2009) i sometimes start to think that i can not learn any more. But everytime i see a new lisp routine, and my lack of knowledge to code them, i feel that i have so much to learn. Anyways, enough chit chat. I am looking for two things and i hope some good person can help me pointing me in the right direction. First i would love to learn how to code those lisp routines because at my work (real state and urbanism) there are a thousand ways that i can make it faster with lisp routines. Second, i was looking exactly for a lisp routine that makes boundaries out of the selected objects. Imagine a urban block (a closed polyline) , and now imagine the divisions between its lots (they can be polylines, lines or arcs) . I need to make one boundary in each lot. I can do it with the "boundary" command, but the thing is that sometimes we have around 10k lots (500 urban blocks), so that is a lot of clicking. I use autocad architecture 2016 and windows 10 if that helps somehow I hope i made myself clear. Sorry if not. English is my second language Atte. Francisco

Counting Blocks Within a Boundary
Beeftimer posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLHello, all. I have a question concerning block counting. I have become familiar with the BCOUNT command, but I wanted to take it one step further for my particular application. What I have is several viewports within a drawing. Each viewport represents a particular floor of a building. Furthermore, within each floor are "loops" defined by colored, dashed lines in which there reside certain devices (blocks). Identical devices may exist within other loops on the same floor. Here's the question: Is there a way to count (and possibly export that data to a spreadsheet) the number of blocks that reside within each loop boundary? The boundaries are rarely simply rectangles. It's easy to count the number of blocks within a viewport, but I'm having trouble figuring out (if there even IS a way) how to count the number of blocks within my loop boundaries. **I should clarify and say that, when I say viewports, what I really mean is layouts. There is one viewport per layout/floor. Sorry if this caused any confusion or cringing. Thanks in advance. Beef
How to Hide Hatch boundary?
cad_cow posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceI wish to hide my associative hatch boundaries. Is this possible to do as a permanent rule? I have seen that you can apparently put them on a different layer then turn them off. Does anyone have a quick trick for what i am trying to achieve? I used the selectsimliar command but it chose all polylines (which i guess is what a hatch boundary is?) Any ideas, or is this going to be a tedious job each time i wish to hide them....?
Hello everyone. These days I am in need of a Lisp to boost my productivity. What I am exactly looking for is a program capable of: 1. Create a polygon from lines - boundaries (like the BPOLY command) then 2. Create a Label to identify the polygon (like a numeric order of 1, 2 ,3..) and finally 3. Return the polygon area in a table or Excel file. I found something at LeeMac's website but the lisp I've found there doesn't do step 2 (doesn't create the polygon by boundaries). If someone could help me I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
Hatching and gaps
wirty91 posted a topic in AutoCAD Beginners' AreaHey! I have tried to search solution to this gap problem but with no success. AutoCAD generates gaps to my drawing, sometimes there is NO gap and then it says there is when I'm selection new are to hatch (puts the red circle to old place where it didn't earlier say there is gap!). I have tried to use Gap Tolerance tool first with value of 10 but it didn't work. After that I changed it to 1000 and it worked but the hatch area wasn't good. I also tried to pull line over other and trim it, didn't work either. Used also join but it didn't work... I have used object snap always when I drew the picture. I have zoomed as much I can and there is no gaps. I'm so confused! What to do? Thanks in advance! Uploaded with ImageShack.us Uploaded with ImageShack.us
Hatching over X-refs.
Glen1980 posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceRecently my copy of 2010LT has decided that it will ignore X-refs as valid boundaries when I am hatching. This is quite annoying as I am now having to draw non printable polylines over x-refs which rather defeats the object of x-refs. Does anyone know a command that will tell boundary hatch to recognize the x-refs? If it makes any difference the X-refs are attached and not overlaid.
