Showing results for tags 'property sets'.
So Im getting a "too few Arguments" error message and after debugging I still cant seem to find which line is causing this error. The function of this lisp is supposed to select a register bock [attached below]: create a list for each block selected based on the cfm values in its [cfm] attribute. if the value falls within a certain range then it should've selected the property sort value. any help would be much appreciated. 10 X 8 Supply Register Sets.dwg
MaxwellEdison posted a topic in Architecture & ADTAhoy hoy. Long time no see. Unfortunately I'm popping back in because I've recently been pushed into the hinterlands outside my experience. Namely, we're finally looking into the Scheduling tools in ACA and I've been tasked with learning the property set system well enough to make them match our current workflow as closely as possible. First a little background as context for my issue. I work for a small log building manufacturer using primarily ACA with a separate add-on program called HSBCad to handle creating and exporting the log tooling to the plant for production. HSBCad offers its own scripting language which functions nearly identically to C++. This scripting language was used to do many of the annotation functions as well including tagging and scheduling. Unfortunately, the in-house person who was developing our custom code left the company and we've been slowly separating ourselves from those systems to cut down on training required for new hires. Yesterday I took a couple of hours to teach myself about property sets and schedules and have already created one to match our current style. With the schedule in place I've started looking into creating a tag to match ours as well. Here's where I've hit my snag. We're a bit of an odd duck in that we do not create a unique tag for each door, identical doors will receive the same tag. We do this because our buildings are shipped as 'kits' with each unique log receiving a number and it's more intuitive for the layperson that may be assembling it that the doors and windows be treated similarly. It's also easier on our own shipping and inventory management to keep human arithmetic errors out of the counts. What I am looking to do is create a formula property definition for custom door/window tags to auto-increment the number while also tagging like as like. I don't know anything about vb scripting and am new to property sets in general so I'm not sure if this is really even possible in practice. TL;DR in bold Edit: We're using ACA 2012
BrianClarke posted a topic in AutoCAD GeneralI work for a healthcare facility which has several fire and smoke walls throughout. I've created a library of the custom walls that are commonly used. Under the property sets for the walls I have created a box where the fire rating can be inputed. Now, that I have the walls set up and I want to have the doors take on the fire wall properties of the wall they are placed in. For example, if I place a door in a 3 hour rated fire door I want the door to update its property sets to show that it too is supposed to be a 3 hour rated door. I have 1 hour, 2 hour, 3 hour, and smoke rated walls and I need my doors to update their properties automatically under the "Extended Data" tab of the properties menu. Please help!!
