It Pays To Be a Nerd: Using Gaming Devices For AutoCAD
tomhamlet posted a topic in Tutorials & Tips'n'TricksWhen I am not at work, hanging with buds, or watching football (Go Colts), I can ussually be found playing Xbox or PC games such as Starcraft or LOL. When I play games on the computer I tend to be very competitive. As a result, I own gaming input devices such as a gaming mouse or gamepad. However, these can also be used in AutoCAD to boost speed greatly. The mouse sitting at my desk is a Cyborg RAT 7, dubbed the transforer mouse. Using only my mouse I can switch between four different layers, and activate 8 different commands all without ever touching the keyboard or leaving the model space. Gamepads let you have more accessible hotkeys. No matter how fast you are at moving your cursor or typing in a command, hotkeys set up on a mouse or pad are quicker! Hope you enjoy this tip and that it will help speed up your drafting!
tomhamlet posted a topic in CAD ManagementI have been working along side my manager to get all of the drafters and drawings at our company on the same page. We have worked together and came up with a very effective dws file. However, I am still noticing a failure in the file. When I run the check standards tool, all problems are fixed except for a few in the dimstyle. the few that remain are the line and symbol attributes, these are set in my dws as ByLayer, but this change does not take affect. Any ideas or comments on how to get the attributes to match?
Is it wise to load all LISP codes at ACAD startup?
khoshravan posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLMaybe it is better to ask the question in this manner: What is the best way to manage the LISP codes and know when to load which code from which address. Maybe it is not wise to load all codes at ACAD startup as it is related to loading, I can assume it consumes bits and bytes and make the program fat which is not good. But my problem is that: When number of codes are handful, there is no problem remembering the name and what they do, but when they increase it is hard to know which LISP is necessary and in which folder I should look for it? How the you guys manage your LISP codes?
Reivt and Navisworks Manage Issue
diarmuid posted a topic in Autodesk RevitI am currently modelling in two packages, a piping package called PDS which is an Intergraph package. i import these files into Navisworks via an nwc file, no poblem there. it interact correctly with this model. form this i can read the pipe sizes specs etc. in otherowrds it is not a dumb model. When i import the Revit model via the same method. and when i run a clash report beetween the tw, the revit model will trow up two clashes per actual clash. in other words when say a pipe penetrates a wall (a hard clash) it should only really detect it as a single clash (pipe v wall). However, it detects the front face of the wall and the back face of the wall?! Has this happend to anyone out there, and if so have you solved the issue or is it a software glich? Any input on this would be greatlly appreciated Regards Diarmuid
