  1. Hello everyone I have wanted to create some type of LISP for a long time now. Iv done 1000's of handrail drawing in the past few years, and expect to do many many more. These rails are 1.50 x 1.50 square tubing, 16ga wall, 304 stainless or Mild Steel. The standard height is 42" which should never change. There are only a few variables when drawing these. When you have a handrail that has more than just the end uprights, the center distance of uprights can be no larger than 42". When a handrail is short enough to not need intermediate uprights, the center distance can be no larger than 50". I have included a sample drawing of how I layout my rail drawing for the shop to fabricate. I have shown, a rail with multiple uprights and one short one that doesn't require intermediate uprights. I would love to have a LISP designed to have a dialog box pop up that ask for: Handrail Length: 4" - 240" Material: Stainless or Mild Steel Once criteria is entered, the LISP draws the handrail and then creates a cut list, like I have shown in my sample. Is it possible to dimension and place text with the same LISP program? Thanks for all the help everyone! AJ Here is the sample file I have put together as an example of how I draw my shop drawings.
