  1. hai, i need help.i have a working lisp routine which gives perpendicular line distance to main pline when clicked on a place perpendicular, all i want to add is the leader at the where i click and Easting and Northing and CH. and also instead of TEXT i need MText position where i can click. pls reply if its possible. i've added a screenshot for reference ..... thanks:) (defun c:Chi (/ s p c a d tp sch) (setq sch (getstring "\nSpecify start chainage : <0>")) ;"0" is set as the default value (if (= sch "")(setq sch "0")) (if (and (setq s (car (entsel "\nPick a polyline :"))
  2. I'm having a problem getting a Z coordinate from a point or a object, like a 3dPolyline. I need to put a text in front of it. I have this one, but it only gets the X and Y coordinates and I just need the Z coordinate.
  3. Hi Everyone, I am having a problem using the command in geological location command. is it possible to set the actual location of my project in google map using this command? I don't have access to plex earth. Please help me to enlighten. Thank you,

    Coordinates LISP

    Hello, I am looking for the next lisp. I need to create a plline (for example a rectangle) wherever I want inside the model. Then, the routine will ask me about the distance between coordinate tic marks (x) , the plot scale (1/500 for example) and the height text. Then I will click the rectangle and finally it will create all the coordinate tick marks inside the rectangle as an editable objects (block for example) with its coordinates N (vertical) and E (horizontal). I am attaching a dwg Thanks, Best regards, Daniel. 1.dwg
  5. Hello, I recently discovered the potential in acad with lisps, and first of all I want to thank all the people sharing their knowledge (specific thanks to Tharwat and GC gile)! I am completely ignorant regarding what seems like programming here, but I am very willing to try and learn (allready succeeded in changing a parameter in a lisp all by myself!) The facts are: I have lots of closed 2d polylines (or lwpolylines, doesn't really matter because I have learned how to turn my polys into lwpolys). I have to extract their area, layer and coordinates, in a way that each polyline's data can be
  6. hello, i am pretty new at vb.net and i am stucked at converting coordinates from model space to paper space, so please help at this. Actually i need some examples how to get coordinates from model space point to paper space (for example i am selecting point in model space and other point in paper space and i need to draw a line between them(visually) in paperspace. Or maybe i can add object to array in modelspace(that i could have right coordinates), do CHSPACE and get these objects in paperspace array(that i could have new objects' coordinates)? Sorry for my english, if someone c
  7. Sample.dwg Hi all, I want to write a program which will export the coordinates of vertices for selected polylines with Object Data which corresponds to each polyline. Please refer to a sample drawing attached with this thread. I am happy with this program to export coordinates ; ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ; (Export LWPOLYLINE Vertices & Points to File) ; Copyright (C) 2000 DotSoft, All Rights Reserved ; Website: http://www.dotsoft.com ; ------------------------------------------------------
  8. I'm looking for a way to extract the X, Y and Z values from a set of selected blocks (there may be several types of blocks) and then have it export to a txt file. I'm not sure if it's possible but I'd like to have it export in the order that the blocks were placed. The format I'm looking for would be like this: x,y,z x,y,z and so on... I can do it in Microstation but would prefer an Autcad Lisp. Any help is really appreciated!!!!!
  9. I usually do extensive research before posting a question to this forum, but I have not been able to find the answer I'm looking for. I'm trying to create a lisp that asks you for a plane (getkword "X Y or Z <Y>:") Then pick a point (getpoint "\nSelect Point) Pick blocks (setq blks (ssget '((0 . "INSERT")))) Finally aligns all blocks to the selected plane. I have a Lisp that does this, except that when the blocks have attributes, the attributes stay in place and I would have to manually move them. I know that a way to do it is to select all block
  10. Hello I'm not able to figure out how to easily access the first entity of a slection set created with coded windows selection. I want to read out coodinates of the first point of 2 different objects which are "grabed" in a coded windows selection set. One polyline, one line. Then I want to copy the line from it's first point as basepoint to the first point of the polyline. Advanced I would like to copy it to all the other points of the polyline too. So it would be further more interesting to know how to access (read out the coordinates of) the second, the third and so on point of
  11. Hello guys, I'm trying to make a lisp to import points from txt file to autocad, and then to polyline them and to make a union from those points, creating a iregular area. The main purpose is to calculate the area of this created object. The txt file is something like this: 101 234.442 442.425 102 ..... 103.... 104... 105... Anyone there that could help me with this lips ? I kinda need it until tomorow.
  12. Hi there, I'm looking for a Lisp routine that can count the number of one specific nested block (it will always have the same name) within a single layout, and then automatically insert the same block (which doesn't need to be nested) to differing coordinates depending on how many of that block there already is. I am having doubts to whether this would even be possible but I thought I would ask. Seeing as nested blocks can be counted through Lisp, I figured it might be possible. I've began to explore the world of Lisp and am using a few different routines currently. They work gre
  13. Hi mates, any idea to get the geo-coordinates of a Position Marker (new entity in Autocad 2016)? I tried to extract like a block attributes, but it doesn't work. Thanks in advance.
  14. Hi, i'm want to import the code (or description) from csv file (X,Y,Code) on the coordinates of each point. I can do it in excel, but i'm looking for a easy way. The layer could be current, height 2, and rotation 0. I can change this properties later, so no problem about it. Please excuse my limited English, corrections are welcome. Many thanks in advance.
  15. Hi all, I am using the attached lisp to import xyz (PNEZD) coordinates into Autocad 2015 with their points numbers and descriptions. The lisp works great, the only problem is that when all the points are put in, I can't change the colour and layer of the attached descriptions and elevations. The points themselves will change colour and layer, but we can't get the writing to move to those same layers. I'm not sure if this requires working on the lisp itself, or if it is something that can be fixed in a setting in Autocad, but I'm definitely stuck! Any help would be greatly appreciated
  16. Hi. I'm a beginner in CAD, I'm going to ask how to draft a lot using the coordinates(latitude and longitude) from google earth. Example: Point A. Latitude: 11 Degree 18'2.22"N Longitude: 124 Degree 57'46.89"E Please check my attachment picture.
  17. Hello all, I'm trying to align some text blocks and arrows, but I'm having a clumsy time navigating AutoCAD's "features" related to doing this. Quick demo pasted below I have my text centered, and want to align them to my (red) centerline. But whenever I select two blocks and try to Move them, the "grab handles" go away. If I have a lot of items to move, it's tedious to do one at a time. On the corner, there is a QuickCalc button where I can pick the exact coordinate I want, but when I try that, it sets ALL coordinates at the same time, where I only want to change the Y.
  18. Hey guys, I'm trying to get the four corners of a rectangle in modelspace set to variables and I'm having a hard time with it. I'm able to get the four corners into a list, but I'm having a hard time setting each coordinate to a variable. The issue I'm having at this point is that the second variable duplicates the coordinate values. The first variable Here's what I got so far... (defun c:test (/ ptlist x y) (setq ptlist (massoc 10 (entget(car(entsel))))) (defun c:massoc (key alist / x nlist) (foreach x alist (if (eq key (car x)) (setq nlist (cons (cdr x) nlist)) ) )
  19. hi, I have a little problem with a lisp file that extract coordinates from DWG and label them with prefix and counters then export them to text file. if anybody can advice how to exit this lisp correctly i would really appreciate it a lot. (defun run () (setq pll (getstring "\nPlease Enter of new file (name.ext) :")) (setq pl (open pll "w")) (setq ang ( getreal "\nPlease Enter DV Angle: " ) ) (setq n ( getstring "\nPlease Enter TAXI name: " ) ) (initget (+ 1 2 4)) (setq a ( getint "\nPlease Enter MH number: " ) ) ;(setq e (getstri
  20. I have set in autocad the correct angle settings, have been applying 20 different functions to obtain the correct angle (Y axis) between two coordinates, but I keep getting strange angles back from this routine. Either the correct angle is difference with 90, or 450. Any idea why? I have gone through most of math forums on the internet. I need the angle correctly in order to scale a polygon. thanks. Public Function GiveAngle(DegRad As Boolean, x1 As Double, y1 As Double, x2 As Double, y2 As Double) As Double Dim Xdist, Ydist As Double Dim ATAN3 As Double Dim PI As Double PI = 3.141592
  21. How do you turn off the coordinates(12.1588,1.7770,0.0000) that show up from the previous value(5) entered on command line so the value of last entered(5) shows up when using the keyboard up arrow? This done using the 'move' command.
  22. Hi Guys, Is it possible to use Pscom object to get shapes coordinate? World or UCS both OK. I have a set of UCS points like this by using list command in prosteel. Med Res PolyCount=1 Med Nr=0 X=-152.500000 Y=-154.000000 Bulge=0.000000 Med Nr=1 X=152.500000 Y=-154.000000 Bulge=0.000000 Med Nr=2 X=152.500000 Y=-146.300000 Bulge=0.414214 Med Nr=3 X=144.800000 Y=-138.600000 Bulge=0.000000 ...... Need to output them to other applicaiton. It is a W310 beam. KS_Shape and KS_ShapeInfo didn't work. Please help.
  23. I have a AutoCAD plan with roughly 1000 points . I want to display a sl. number along side the respective points and then generate A excel file with point number and their co ordinates. I am very new to AutoCAD. Can anyone give me detailed procedure how to do this?? Thanks in advance
  24. As the title says, I am trying to paste an object (circle) via x and y coordinates. Let's say they are: Center X: 1578516'-11 3/8" Center Y: 572762'-9 1/2" Everything works fine until I get to the space...that is, 1578516'-11[space]3/8" because if I hit the space bar it will submit my command and I will not be able to input the rest of the coordinate (3/8"). Is there a specific way to type these coordinates without using a space from the spacebar? I have tried a hyphen in place of the space bar and it doesn't work. Any ideas?
  25. Hello. Is it possible to import real time gps coordinates from Leica CS10 to Autocad? Is it a function in Autocad or will i need a third part software to accomplish that? Thanks for your help
