  1. (setq axd (vla-AddDimAligned spc d1 d2 ex)) (vla-Copy axd) (vl-cmdf "_.explode" "_l" "") ;could not find an ActiveX equivalent for this (setq del (ssget "_p")) ;errors here, does not set the variable and exits routine Can someone shed some light? What is the deal with the above? I am able to type the last expression at the command line after error and it sets the variable fine, so it seems to recognize the previous entities after lisp exits but not during for some reason. Also, is there a way to explode dims other than the command method? Thanks in advance!
  2. hi guys im new to the forum. I wounder if theres a lisp or could be created to change dim style and it pick the right layer by it self. thanks:)
  3. I work in plumbing design and am constantly burdened by the tedious task of setting out hundreds upon thousands of penetrations every month for the guys on site to locate their plumbing points through the slab. They use a GPS system to expedite the plotting, but first I provide a CAD file with just 3 layers; GRids ( a line ), Wastepoint ( a donut poly line ) and Fixture Name ( multi text) which the survey program can interpret and set out from ( actually, the surveyor only needs one point, which he grabs from the site grids that I provide ). So that's all good, but on top of this I must dimension off the grids every point so that measurements can be done on site as back-up/cross checking. Of course I can't have dims overlapping each other. Is there any way to automate this part of the process? Taking a dim from the nearest grid (x and y axis) to the centre of the object I use for the penetration.
  4. I have created a 1/4" DIM style and everything is how I want it to look except my leader function. When I go to use the leader it is grossly out of scale ( much smaller than I want) and it uses a different text than that of what I set in the style. I am not sure how to get my leader to work and would appreciate any advice. thank you.
