  1. Hello everyone. I am working with a code to copy object (s) and paste with rotation using the same base point as the axis of rotation. What I can't do is create a while cycle to be able to make multiple copies and rotate. I could only do it once. If someone helps me a little I would be very grateful. (defun c:cr (/ ss p1 p2 p3) (setq ss (ssget)) (command "copy" ss "" "0" "0") (setq p1 (getpoint "\n base Point: ")) (setq p2 (getpoint "\n destination point: ")) (command "move" ss "" p1 p2) (setq p3 (getpoint "\n reference point: ")) (command "rotate" ss
  2. Hi Guys, New to CAD Tutor. I came here looking for a lisp routine to do multiple copies at varying distances from a point relative to the last copy point. I found Lee Mac's Lisp Routine on an old post but I am having trouble with it. I am using AutoCAD 2018. (defun c:copyrel ( / b i l o p q s ) (if (and (setq s (ssget "_:L")) (setq p (getpoint "\nSpecify Base Point: ")) (setq b (vlax-3D-point (trans p 1 0))) ) (progn (repeat (setq i (sslength s)) (setq l (cons (vlax-ename->vla-object (ssname s (
  3. Hello, I'm just re-familiarizing myself with AutoCAD after a four year stint as a CNC operator, and I'm trying to remember a little trick I used to know. I would like to clip an image file with multiple polylines as the clipping boundaries. The problem I'm having, however, is that there doesn't seem to be an "all-in-one" solution for this task. XCLIP only handles a single clipping boundary. So I tracked down "XClipM.lsp", which covers multiple clipping boundaries, but not arcs, circles, splines, etc. Then I tried CLIPIT. That handles the arcs and circles, but NOT multiple clipping bo
  4. I know there's a bunch of posts on this but I could never find a lisp that could incorporate all, or multiple. lisps that can..auto run w/ ea. .dwg opened, redefine & replace multiple referenced blocks (about 10) keeping original location, & retaining attributes..w/o any prompts..I could be asking too much but any insight is greatly appreciated..I'm on hr 7 on this one..if it's easier..only one block has attributes and can make a separate lisp for that..or again if easier make a separate lisp for ea block..anything put together really that auto runs w/o prompts.. If u think I missed a
  5. Hello, I am new to the forum. Can anyone of you help me? I am a beginner in lisp codes. My problem is that I need to do multiple selection to change color. I can only do it once Also that you can select the objects and then apply the command:glare:
  6. Hello folks! I would like to know if you guys could help me to align multiple lines to an specific point. Take a look at this image. I want to align all color lines to the white one at the bottom. I tried to move them, but I need a reference point and I do not know how to do it. Ive been searching about it here, but also unsuccessful.
  7. 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
  8. I work with AutoCad Electrical. I've been using an amazing Lisp file by Alan J. Thompson (who is a frequent contributor) call Match Attributes Values and it has been a enormous time saver. However, with AutoCad Electrical, the electrical blocks called "components" have an attribute called Tag1 that gives the component its uniqueness. It is this (and only this) attribute that I DON'T want to change when I copy all attributes between these blocks. I attached the wonderful MAV code. (I hopes that's okay.) Can someone help me in modifying the code that would change all attributes ex
  9. Okay, so i feel very stupid for asking for help with this but to save my life I cannot figure this out. We have anywhere from 30-50 sheets for site plans. Opening each sheet and plotting them takes anywhere from 30 min. to an hour. This is taking up too much time when I should be drafting instead of hitting the open, plot, close buttons. Can someone please explain to me from start to finish of how to, I guess, set up sheet sets to plot the whole set of plans at once? I think a sheet set would be used. Not sure about that though. I would GREATLY appreciate any help. Thanks everyone. Miller
  10. Hello, I have a Drawing in which I need to draw thousands of parallel lines (offset) on different distances. Is there anyway or Lisp Routine which can help me to Draw all the offsets at once for each line. see the screenshot below for reference. Thank You, Regards, Sidhu
  11. Hello, Is there anyway or LISP to use EXTrim between two Lines as shown in the following Screenshot. Thank you, Regards, Sidhu

    creating families

    hi anyone know if it is possible to create a family using existing family members and not extrusions? what i need to do is create a family consisting of a single vertical plane unistrut frame that is copied along a bay of columns. however since the size of the unistrut can change i would rather be able to open the family and change the strut from a drop down menu from the unistrut family, then save the parent family and all change within that bay. hope thats clear! like in CAD where you create a block then you just have to change it once when there's multiple instances. i know this is sim
  13. I have created a view to zoom to my titleblock and plot stamp so that I may check revision dates. I then put this to a macro for easy access to the view (I keep the ribbon closed for maximum screen size most of the time). It seems that these saved views are only saved in the current drawing and I would need to save a view for each drawing file. This can be cumbersome for many drawings. Is there an easier way to view a certain area in paperspace? Or is there a lisp out there to create a saved view in multiple drawing files? Thanks for your time, -Nobull P.S. I also just realized th
  14. hi i am cleaning up a lot of old drawings each having multiple xrefs. however all are being moved to the current xref folder on the server so the xref path is messed up. we currently utilise a 'no path' xref setting on all drawings but these older ones all have saved paths. anyone know of a quicker way to convert all xrefs to no path as it's taking me all bloody day. thanks
  15. I'm trying to use a script to draw multiple lines (from one to the next) when I have the quadrants (1-4), bearings and distances in a file...but it doesn't resume the line command from the endpoint of the last drawn line--and therefore "tweeks" (at the * in the short sample script below). line 'bd 5000,1000 3 17.5057 164.71* 2 78.072 31 3 10.111 50 3 19.2147 116 4 66.215 297 Any hints on forcing it to keep drawing, as it does when I hand enter these commands? NOTE: The nice thing I DID learn is that you can bi-pass the [.P .N .G] choices by just putting in the x,y
  16. Hello all, Could anyone tell me how to alter this code? It asks to pick a value then whether to apply it once or multiple times. In multiple mode, you still only choose one at a time. I would like to be able to apply to multiple objects at once, using a selection box. Thanks -Nobull ;;;;Realization {Smirnoff} ;;; TTCM - Text to Text copy whith Matchprop.

  17. Hi Guys, I've seen that its possible to have multiple drop-down arrows (lookup/visibility states) within 1 block. How do I do that? I am redoing my title block & would find this extremely handy for all the different options I want to select. Please let me know if you don't understand what I mean.
  18. Maybe I'm just too new at the LISP thing but I've been through many forums and nothing really seems to spell it out for the layman, i.e. me. My company seems rather fresh to LISP as well but they have one "master" list of lisps they have used for some time. This list is loaded in everyone's CAD. I have several others that I have found that I would like to add to this master list but I don't see how they are separated and loaded. The idea is to update this master list with new commands and have others be able to simply have them available the next time CAD is started up again when the
  19. Hi I searched the forum to find a solution to my material assigning problem.the only question similar to mine was answered by a person who indicated there were assets missing.I couldn't finds simple exact description of what assets are. My problem is: when I open a vray material in material editor I see a list of different materials some have (standard) in front of them and some not.what should I do when I see 5 names and which one should I double click on? this is confusing me so much and I just can't find the answer via experimental process....
  20. I have a .lsp file that mostly creates keyboard shortcuts for basic commands. My copy mode is set to default to "multiple" - and if I type "copy", it is indeed multiple. However, if I use my shortcut (just the "c" key), it is not. Here's the code: (defun c:c() (command "copy")) I don't think it gets much simpler than that... why would it not operate the same way as "copy"? Confused.
  21. Hi! I'm trying to find a way to plot multiple (over a thousand) DWG files to PDF without doing each one manually. I've played around a little bit but without any luck. I'm using AutoCAD 2002 LT. Is there any way to do this? I've also got little to no experience with the more complex settings and abilities of autocad so when explaining please do so in laymans terms. Thanks very much to anyone that can help in advance! PS. 2002 lt has no general publish (only publish to web) option and I have no idea how sheet sets work.
  22. My question: How do I change the font styles of multiple mtext's. My solution: Select all the boxes, type mo for properties, then change the style in the properties window. To make this simpler in the future I put all the text boxes in their own layer so I can use qselect to select them all quickly.
  23. Hi ALL, You know how when you offset a rectangle it it stay as a polyline? i need a lisp routine that i can use to offset the rectangle, set the new lines to current layer, and substract the offset distance from both end of the line. i know thats asking alot but has anyone seen a routine like this? Thanks, Brian
  24. Hi All I have been searching for a way of exporting multiple polyline or spline coordinates to txt file and all I can find is ones that write out as a single continuous list of coordinates with nothing denoting which one is which. I really need it to be able to export each polyline as a group, and I would also love for it to be able to include the number of points and name of the layer eg: polyline 'number of points' 'layername' 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0 1.0 0.0 2.0 2.0 0.0 polyline 'number of points' 'layername' 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0 4.0 0.0 2.0 8.0 0.0 and so on..... Any help with this
  25. I use autocad 2000 at my job to create drawings for CAM. The machining paths are numbered between 521-850 (this is the block name) each time with numbers being used throughout this range, not nessecarily in order. What I want to do is get only these numbered blocks to insert all at once with one command at 0,0. Question one: Can I get a list of just the block names with autolisp? Question 2: Can I filter the block names with some sort of cond? or will I have to go about that another way?
