  1. G'day all I'm working on and editing a mapping project from photogrammetry. I have a block which indicates a square manhole cover. (File is attached to this post) My project area has hundreds of these manholes and my client needs each of them scaled and rotated to fit the exact size of the manhole. I had been manually doing this with the help of an ECW image in the background. But the process is rather tedious and not all that accurate. My operators can pick up a three point string showing the height and length of the manhole. Some manholes are square and some are rectangular.
  2. Dear All, I have a problem replacing blocks (titleblock) which is sometimes a dynamic block. When replacing blocks with a new one i get a lselsetp nil error when there is a dynamic block involved. What i try to do is the following: - I try to replace the block by finding it by name (so no manual selection is needed because of a script) - read the coordinates of the old block - read the scale of the old block - delete the block - purge all unused blocks in the drawing - insert the new one in the drawing at the right scale and coordinates The A0KILL does work fo
  3. Hi there all First post and it's a request for help (although been a long time lurker) I've got a 3d drawing that has a load of levels in 3d positions with text displaying the height value. These are all orientated and readable in plan view. I want to create some sections using the 3d information, and what I would like to work out is the best way to manipulate the level cross (block) and associated text so that it is rotated to a side on section view. (in model space not just in a paper space viewport) I've tried using the rotate3d command on mass and can't quite get the result
  4. 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?
  5. Please help! Every time I insert a block (dynamic or otherwise) into any drawing (I have tried several) my ucs (0,0) changes to the insertion point of that new block. I don't know what I have done, what button I have inadvertently pushed or setting that I have set, but I do not know how to undo this! Has anyone ever heard of this? Please help me! I am using AutoCAD 2014.
  6. What is wrong in the code? I am trying to set the Z position value to zero for all the blocks in the drawing; (defun c:B0() (setq myFilter(list (cons 0 "INSERT"))) (setq ss (ssget "_X" myFilter)) (setq l (sslength ss)) (setq i 0) (Repeat l (setq blk (ssname ss i)) (setq DXF (entget (car blk))) (setq IP (cadr (assoc 0 dxf))) (setq NewIP (subst "0" (caddr IP) IP)) (setq NewDXF (subst NewIP IP DXF)) (entmod NewDXF) ) )
