  1. Hi, I've found the align object lisp from Lee Mac (thank you sir). I have a slope for an underground garage where a special type of car can't pass the entrance (hanging too low). They have given me a model of the car. I want to align the car to the curve i've created. The problem is that the car has two tires, represented by circles. The point where they hit the curve is somewhere along those circles and i should align with 2 points to the curve. Can you help me out? The blue line is a section i've taken from the DTM, The green line is a proposition i've made with trial and error. car align to curve.dwg
  2. Hello For a few days now I have been using the LISP made by Small Fish, LISP is very good, the only problem that it is causing me is that it does not highlight the points that I have selected and on some occasions I select the same point twice, I would appreciate it if you Please tell me a way to modify that. ThaEscrumbo1.LSPnk you
  3. Hi, there, im very new working with Autolisp, in the past i copy and paste code and use the lisp. Thanks to all the people who write this lisp. Now im learning how to code with lisp, i m reading books, developers guide and this forum. I need to understand how some commands works for use it in the lisp code. I cant find a description of how command works. For example (command "xref" "r"). But i know this command have more options, i need the description of the other options and how can i use it. (defun c:CircC () (command "._circle" "0,0" "3,3") (command "._thickness" 1) (command "._circle" PAUSE PAUSE) (princ) ) i want to know how circle command works "0,0" is the origin point "3,3" is for ??
  4. Hey guys! Do y'all know of a LISP that will label a hatch based on its name? Similar to what AlanJT did here with block name->mleader. Bonus points if you can get it to work with AlanJT's code, so I only need one command to label my blocks and hatches. And if this isn't possible, then is there a LISP for populating an mleader with a palette display description? Any help would be great! Thanks.
  5. Hi guys, im looking for a quick way for change the dimension precision in multiple files. I need to change from 0.000 to 0.00 in multiple files. I dont want open each drawing and set the precision to 2 decimal. You know we look for the quick and less bored way of do things. Thanks
  6. Hi, I have thousands of drawings. They are all similar to This.dwg one. My final goal is to merge them into one kml file.. This would take months to do it one by one. If I have the right lisp to automate this in one drawing, then I can use script to run that lisp over other drawings. To reduce the result file size, I decided to keep only the green polyline in the center of the drawing(which matters the most): (defun C:foo ( / varf ins str) ; Selecting Polyline (setq varf (list '(-4 . "<OR") '(0 . "LWPOLYLINE") '(-4 . "<AND") '(0 . "POLYLINE") '(-4 . "<NOT") '(-4 . "&") '(70 . 80) '(-4 . "NOT>") '(-4 . "AND>") '(-4 . "OR>") (cons 62 3) ) ) (sssetfirst nil (ssget "_X" varf)) ; Inverting selection (if (ssget "_I") (progn; then (sssetfirst nil) (command "_.select" "_all" "_remove" (ssget "_p") "") (sssetfirst nil (ssget "_p")) ) (prompt "\nRequires pre-selection."); else ) ; Delete Selection (command "_.erase") ; And This is how I insert Drawing Name (and (or (> (getvar 'DWGTITLED) 0) (alert "Save the drawing then try again!") ) (setq ins (getpoint "\nChoose Insertion Point: ")) (setq str (entmakex (list '(0 . "MTEXT") '(100 . "AcDbEntity") '(100 . "AcDbMText") (cons 10 (trans ins 1 0)) (cons 40 0.8);Text height (cons 7 "STANDARD");Text style '(1 . "") ) ) ) (vla-put-textstring (vlax-ename->vla-object str) "%<\\AcVar Filename \\f \"%tc4%fn2\">%}" ) ) ) Now these are what I'm looking for: - I don't want to pick the insertion point manually, need to insert field inside or over selected polyline - after inserting field text, I want to explode the text. to maintain drawing name after merge. - adding a condition to check the process, if anything goes wrong, insert that drawing name at (0,0,0). this way I can track that file to check it manually. Thank you in Advanced.
  7. Hello guys, would like to ask for your help that I'd like to have a lisp that can let me extract data from multiple lines which then the data can be exported into a txt file. Would like to export the angle of the line ( the angle extracted should be in the form of degree minute second), the distance and also the end point coordinate( Y & X) in this order. Thank you very much. I am struggling with this problem!
  8. Hello guys, I am working in AutoCAD. I am looking for a combined LISP code for creating points for the selected objects at its Endpoints, Midpoints, Center, Geometric center, Node, Quadrant, Intersection & Insertion as per users requirements (options with drop down list mentioning Endpoints, Midpoints, Center, Geometric center, Node, Quadrant, Intersection & Insertion Shall get prompted.) Once I select the required snap then the result shall be creation of points at the chosen object snap. An imaginary Example shall be Like like this, command: POBS(Points at Object Snap)-->prompting for what snap need to be found in the selected objects in the for of drop down list--> Creating points in the selected Object Snaps of the selection set. Actually i had found few LISP codes for the following cases 1.PLE-Points on Line Ends.lsp 2.PAI-Point At Intersection.lsp Thanks for the authors of these above LISP they have saved lot of time till date. Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi Is there any way to export all layers separately into pdf format? i want to export all of them at once to edit them in illustrator. It's taking alot of time to export them one by one from autocad I don't have any professional Experience with programming but i have tried to made this .lisp with chatGPT but it's not working to export files which property in codes needs improvements please (defun c:ExportLayersToPDF (\Users\Useer\Desktop\pdf layers) (setq dwgname "EMERALD HILLS MP (2007) 25 01 2023") ; (setq dwgpath "F:\Shahtaj Ahmed Bhutto\AUTOCAD") ; (setq layname "") (while (setq layname (tblnext "LAYER" layname)) (and layname (/= layname "0") (/= layname "DEFPOINTS") (/= (logand (cdr (assoc 70 (tblsearch "LAYER" layname))) 1) 1) (progn (setq pdfname (strcat dwgname "_" layname ".PDF")) (setq pdffullpath (strcat dwgpath pdfname)) (command "-plot" "Yes" "Model" "" "" "DWG To PDF.pc3" "A0" "PORTRAIT" "Inches" "Fit" "Center" "No" "No" "No" "Yes" "No" "No" "Yes" "Yes" pdffullpath) T ) ) ) (princ) )
  10. Hi! Avid reader of the forums, first time poster. I have a code with which I'm trying to extract the x and y coordinate of the startpoint of a line to the clipboard for pasting into another program. The problem is that when I run the lisp in Civil 3D it spits out when running (caddr typelst) on line 6 in the code below. What could cause this. I'm having trouble understanding why it wouldn't be able to grab the type from the list. The code: (vl-load-com) (defun c:copyx1y1 () (setq choice (entsel "Choose the line whose start X and Y you want to copy \n")) (setq entname (car choice)) (setq typelst (assoc 0 (entget entname))) (if (= (caddr typelst) "LINE") (progn (setq startpnt (assoc 10 (entget entname))) (setq x1 (cadr startpnt)) (princ "\n") (princ x1) (princ "\n") (setq y1 (caddr startpnt)) (princ y1) (setq copiedtxt (strcat (rtos x1) "\t" (rtos y1))) (setq result (vlax-invoke (vlax-get (vlax-get (setq htmlfile (vlax-create-object "htmlfile")) 'ParentWindow) 'ClipBoardData) 'SetData "Text" copiedtxt) ) (vlax-release-object htmlfile) copiedtxt ) (progn (princ "The choice is not of type LINE") ) ) (princ) ) Regards, E

    Hi Guys I have a .dwt with all of my custom blocks, leaderstyles, dimstyles and textstyles. i have allot of custom lisp files that generates custom styles and leaders using my styles that i have set up in my .dwt file. I have found that if i work on a drawing from another person and i want to use my "custom" lisp commands i have to drag in my styles via design center. is there a way of adding these styles automatically from my .dwt into the current drawing via lisp? then i can just edit my lisp files to include this instead of dragging in styles from my own template file?
  13. Dear team , I used etransmit command >add file than bind xref option, but not bind in current drawing. Is any tools or lisp, VBA macro for add multiple xref and bind together in current file and save as a zip file.? Note :, Xref not attached in current drawing. I need to attach multiple and bind together in current drawing. Thanks
  14. So i make some lisp-cover them to fas. Put all in 1 folder and make 1 mnu file that load with menuload and load all that lisp. But now i want put that in USB and when i load it to autocad, whatever i click in any lisp i want password showup then when i enter password i can use all fuction of it. Every time i open autocad and use them i need reenter password. Any change i can make that?
  15. I'm looking for a lisp command that can quick swap text between two objects, be they text, mtext, or multi-leader text. So upon running, you click on the two objects, and the text from object A moves to object B, and the text from object B moves to object A, where object A and object B can be different object types.
  16. Hi there, I'm AM and new to the forum I'm creating a set of easy lisp routines for my team. I've loaded the following lisp file into AutoCAD and it works fine when typing the function ColorOffsetV031 into the command line within AutoCAD. However, when I try create a new command that will run the lisp with a macro like ^C^CColorOffsetV031 or ^C^C_ColorOffsetV031 so I can then add it to a ribbon/tab/tool palette, I get the following error: "_ColorOffsetV031 Unknown command "COLOROFFSETV031". Press F1 for help." I'm honestly not sure what I'm doing wrong. I've tried different ways of loading the lisp file, from just dropping the file into AutoCAD, adding it to the Startup Suite, loading it as an application etc. I've created 'buttons' like this before, and I feel so silly asking such a simple question; It's probably something really simple that I just can't pick up on... Even if someone can point me in the direction of a related post from someone else I would be very grateful The lisp: ; Define the tool/function name and variables (defun C:ColorOffsetV31 ( / EName EInfo EColor Group ans ansColor) (setvar "CMDECHO" 1) ; Set the options for user choice (initget "Orange Red Yellow Green Cyan Blue Magenta White L-Grey") ; Ask for user input on color for offset (setq ans (cond ((getkword "\nChoose offset object color [Orange/Red/Yellow/Green/Cyan/Blue/Magenta/White/L-Grey] or ENTER for Orange")) ("Orange"))) ; Set ansColor as input color (cond ((= ans "Orange") (setq ansColor 30)) ((= ans "Red") (setq ansColor 1)) ((= ans "Yellow") (setq ansColor 2)) ((= ans "Green") (setq ansColor 3)) ((= ans "Cyan") (setq ansColor 4)) ((= ans "Blue") (setq ansColor 5)) ((= ans "Magenta") (setq ansColor 6)) ((= ans "White") (setq ansColor 7)) ((= ans "L-Grey") (setq ansColor 8)) ; Should not happen but just here incase no input is given, set ansColor to BLACK (t (setq ansColor 250)) ) ;----------------------------- ; Start OFFSET (command "OFFSET" pause) ; Do the following with OFFSET (while (= 1 (logand 1 (getvar "CMDACTIVE"))) (command pause) ; While OFFSET command is on (while (= 1 (logand 1 (getvar "CMDACTIVE"))) (command pause) ; Set the current entity to be used as the last clicked entity (setq EName (entlast)) ; Get entity info (setq EInfo (entget EName)) ; If the colour of the object isn't known (if (not EColor) ; Match ans to EColor (setq EColor ansColor) ) ; Change the colour (entmod (append EInfo (list (cons 62 EColor)))) ) ) (setvar "CMDECHO" 0) (princ) ) Here's a copy of the command itself too Thanks, AM
  17. Hello to everyone! I wand to create a lisp file that prints on a loop while hiding and unhiding different layers. I am working on a cad software called 4MCAD. 4MCAD unfortunately does not have the native Autocad DWGtoPDF printer. The main problem I am facing is that I have to use third party printers to plot to PDF which ask for the name of the PDF file name on a seperate window. I have tried Nitro PDF creator, cutePDF, doPDF and I cannot figure out how to supress the pop-up window while giving the desired name to the PDF file. Has anyone know how to solve this problem? Can you get DWGtoPDF printer as system printer so my Cad software can find it? Has anyone suceeded with any third party software at giving the file name inside the lisp file? For example let's say that the desired filename is "C:\DWG_prints\DWGpr1.pdf" and I want a command like this: (command "-plot" "n" "" "" "" "n" "n" "" "C:\DWG_prints\DWGpr1.pdf" )
  18. Hi Experts, I downloaded the Chainage Lisp created by hak_vz. In their code, chainage is plotted with an interval. However, I would like to obtain the chainage when I click on an intersection point or anywhere on the selected polyline. Could you please help me with this? I have also attached the Lisp file for reference. chainage_hak_vz.lsp
  19. I have a drawing that has two different blocks (see attached), what I needed to do was transfer over the attributes of one block over to the other (both have different tags). For example copying over attributes in "rev0_date" from the first block tag over to "revslot1date" in the second block tag , I ran across some code in the forums that did just that created by Lee Mac.The problem with it is it only transfers one attribute over, I modified it a little but its still not exactly what I need. The way it currently works is - It asks me to choose the first block with the attributes to copy, once selected it then asks me to choose the second block that will have the attributes pasted to it, once I've selected them, it then pastes the first specified tag attribute in the first block to the second, after that I have to repeat the process again, clicking the block with the attribute to copy and then choosing the second block to paste, I have to keep repeating these steps, clicking the first block then the second over and over until all the tag attributes have been copied over. My question is how can I stop having click the first and then second block over and over again for each tag and instead only have to go through the process once (click first block, then second and then transfer all the attributes over at once). Here is my current code (sorry if its a mess I'm very new to this): (defun c:blockswap ( / _SelectBlockWithTag a b des src tag ) (vl-load-com) (setq DAT1A "Rev0_Date" ; Source Attribute Tag 1 DES1A "Rev0_Desc" ; Source Attribute Tag 2 REV1A "Rev0" ; Source Attribute Tag 3 RDB1A "Rev0_Drawn_By" ; Source Attribute Tag 4 REV1B "RevSlot1Number" ; Destination Attribute Tag 3 DES1B "RevSlot1Description" ; Destination Attribute Tag 2 DAT1B "RevSlot1Date" ; Destination Attribute Tag 1 RDB1B "RevSlot1DrawnBy" ; Destination Attribute Tag 4 ) (defun _SelectBlockWithTag ( tag / e a ) (setq tag (strcase tag)) (while (progn (setvar 'ERRNO 0) (setq f (car (entsel (strcat "\nSelect Block with attribute " tag ": ")))) (cond ( (= 7 (getvar 'ERRNO)) (princ "\nMissed, Try Again.") ) ( (not f) nil ) ( (and (eq "INSERT" (cdr (assoc 0 (entget f)))) (= 1 (cdr (assoc 66 (entget f)))) ) (if (not (setq z (vl-some (function (lambda ( x ) (if (eq tag (strcase (vla-get-tagstring x))) x) ) ) (vlax-invoke (vlax-ename->vla-object f) 'getattributes) ) ) ) (princ (strcat "\nBlock does not contain tag " tag ".")) ) ) ( (princ "\nInvalid Object Selected.") ) ) ) ) z ) (and (setq aa (_SelectBlockWithTag DAT1A)) (setq ab (_SelectBlockWithTag DAT1B)) ) (vla-put-textstring ab (vla-get-textstring aa)) (and (setq ba (_SelectBlockWithTag DES1A)) (setq bb (_SelectBlockWithTag DES1B)) ) (vla-put-textstring bb (vla-get-textstring ba)) (and (setq ca (_SelectBlockWithTag REV1A)) (setq cb (_SelectBlockWithTag REV1B)) ) (vla-put-textstring cb (vla-get-textstring ca)) (and (setq da (_SelectBlockWithTag RDB1A)) (setq db (_SelectBlockWithTag RDB1B)) ) (vla-put-textstring db (vla-get-textstring da)) (princ) ) drawing.dwg

    Change entity layer

    At my job, i have a very tedious job of changing layers from proposed to existing and vice versa our layer setup is very basic "LayerName"=existing layer "LayerName-PR"=Proposed layer. i have recently bought a book to to learn AutoLisp and I've gotten the basic concept. I know that i want to ssget LayerName and setq that name to L then CHPROP LA to L-PR. but i want to know if someone has anything like this already and could help me. I'd like to do a mass select and have it automatically change the entities to their respective PR layer. also vice versa, to remove PR. i'm not looking for a layer renaming lisp. i'm looking for a entity layer changing lisp. anything helps. thanks.

    Close without saving

    I wanted a command to close and not to save. I used the following code: (defun c:cln () ;Close No save (setvar "cmdecho" 0) (command "close" "No") (setvar "cmdecho" 1) ) But when I use it, it closes and saves.....help :S
  22. I want to add another layer to my routine to allow saving of layer state for On/off, Lock, Freeze, and restore them back after routine. I got the locked layer part but i could not understand this awesome crazy simple routine by Kent1Copper from Autodesk Forum (defun GLL (/ lay); = Get Locked Layers (while (setq lay (tblnext "layer" (not lay))) (if (= (logand (cdr (assoc 70 lay)) 4) 4); locked (setq LockedLayers (strcat (cond (LockedLayers) ("")) (cdr (assoc 2 lay)) ",")) ); if ); while ); defun (defun UAL (); = Unlock All Layers (command "_.layer" "_unlock" "*" "") ); defun (defun RLL () ; = Relock [formerly] Locked Layers (command "_.layer" "_lock" LockedLayers "") ); defun Basically, I do not understand this part of code below, where and how it capture the lock/unlock layer state and how i can capture the on/off & freeze layer state (while (setq lay (tblnext "layer" (not lay))) (if (= (logand (cdr (assoc 70 lay)) 4) 4); locked (setq LockedLayers (strcat (cond (LockedLayers) ("")) (cdr (assoc 2 lay)) ",")) ); if ); while Many thanks in advance.
  23. Hello to everyone. I have a file that can draw the longitudinal path of a water line, but it lacks some technical details, such as drawing the boundaries of the table beneath the chart and signing the depth calculated by the lisp as it is, rather than minus a distance estimated by the pipe's radius. Please seek assistance from people with relevant experience. Attachment: Assign Excel and Lisp next to a CAD file that almost has a work model with some notes.

  24. I'm trying to figure out how to write a LISP command where I can click on multiple pipe network pipes from an XREF, and it copies them into my current drawing on the current layer, changing the linetype to contiguous, color to ByLayer, and seta global width of 1. Current theory on how this 'might' be accomplished: -click on xref pipe network pipe -it ncopy's item with base point 0,0 -explode items -burst items -set global width of all items to 1 -change linetype to contiguous for all items -change layer to current layer for all items -join all items that are touching (create one polyline from a group of pipe network pipe items) Thoughts? Thanks. --Matt
  25. hello i want help for creating lisp for me please ... the lisp will do these functions 1- as the attached image (1a) if i have block with yellow at right and some green blocks 2- i want when i launch the lisp to ask me to draw poly line that i want as in image 2a 3- after that when i draw this path with polyline and press enter the lisp ask me to choose blocks that i want to connect to this polyline and i will choose one by one or multiple blocks then after choosing the blocks and press enter ... the lisp will offset the main polyline that i draw and connect every polyline with the basepoint of the blocks that i choose sequentially as appear in this image 5a (attached DWG) can anyone help me please sample.dwg
