  1. 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.

  2. I created a spreadsheet of about 40 rows to be used to create different parts. I then created a part "we'll call it Board_A". I linked to the spreadsheet and used 3 of the fields for my dimensions. Lets say I named the length (which was the extrusion number) as "Len_1". I saved it and all is well!! I then created other parts and used the spreadsheet for the dims. I then went back and opened "Board_A" and saved a copy as "Board_B". I closed Board_A and opened Board_B. I then rt clicked on "Extrusion" so I could change the length from "Len_1" to "Len_1_A" which is another row (field) on that same spreadsheet which is still linked. When I tried I received a message that said I couldn't do that (I forgot the actual message!) I clicked the Parameter icon and the only fields showing on the popup spreadsheet box were the ones I had previously used for those parts that I made from scratch. I thought I figured this out once but if I did I forgot. I deleted the spreadsheet link and then re-added it but nothing I have tried has worked. Is there a way to get these fields to be usable with a Copy of an existing part or do I just have to start from scratch and make the similar part? I hope this makes sense!! Thanks JR_Ohio
  3. Hi, I'm attempting to modify Fixo's code at bottom to read data from an excel spreadsheet that's formatted a bit differently than assumed by the code. The code here assumes X, Y, and Z scale each live in a separate exel column/cell. However, I have existing spreadsheets where these dimensions were entered as a text string in a single cell. For example, the cell might read 6x5.5x24. The only constant is the "x" between the dimensions. The text numbers might be one, two or even three characters and may or may not include decimals. My thought is to modify these lines below to somehow check the same string for the X's and truncate according its position to extract the desired X, Y or Z value. But, I don't know enough yet to even know if this is possible. xscale (atof (vl-princ-to-string (nth 5 item))) yscale (atof (vl-princ-to-string (nth 6 item))) zscale (atof (vl-princ-to-string (nth 7 item))) Failing this, I'll make a second version of the existing spreadsheets and have users copy data into new columns formatted to work with the existing code.
