Block insert without changing View
santoshr0114 posted a topic in .NET, ObjectARX & VBAHi All, I am new here and currently working on a addin related to AutoCAD 2010 prototype. I am working on modelspace not on Layout or paperspace I have 3D wireframe drawings which is a block reference. Example: I have a 3D wireframe drawings of a rectangular box The drawing contains a block reference of a rectangle in different views(Top, Front and left). Now when i insert the block to a new drawing, i can see all the blocks are set to Top view by default. How to override this behavior? I need to place the block as is.
UCS and Modelspace Viewport Problems
MorgaineDax posted a topic in AutoCAD 3D Modelling & RenderingSo we do a lot of 3D coordination using AutoCAD and Fabrication, and since we upgraded to 2015, we've been having a lot of issues with viewports and the UCS. We all typically have at 3 viewports in modelspace. One big one for the plan view, one front view, and a side view. We change them a lot on the fly depending on what we need to see. For example, we'll place a line of ductwork in the plan view and then switch over to one of the side or front views to check clearances between services and adjust accordingly. However, now the viewports keep changing their UCS and we don't know how to fix it. So we'll set a view port to plan view, go to the front view, and not be able to move or dimension anything properly because the UCS looks like it's matching the plan view? Instead of having Y pointing "up" and x pointing "right" in every viewport, the UCS in every viewport will relate to the last view you set. We're assuming it's some variable that didn't get carried over in the upgrade, but no one can figure out how to get it back to the way we usually draft. Don't know if this is the proper forum, but please help?
LISP for Creating Top/Side Views
chiimayred posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLHey all, I'm trying to work on a code where I can project the Top and Side views from a cross-section of a W-Beam (see attached block for an example). I've tried my best but this is as far as I got before spinning my wheels. (Defun c:fd (/ d1 d2 d3 d4 p1) (SETQ D1 (GETDIST "\nWhat is Flange width: ")) (setq d2 (getdist "\nWhat is Flange thickness: ")) (setq d3 (getdist "\nWhat is Web thickness: ")) (setq d4 (getdist "\nWhat is Depth: ")) (setq p1 (getpoint "\nBasepoint for top view: ")) (command "line" p1 @d1.0 ) ) Please note that this lisp is only for W-Beams, I do not need a catch all lisp. If required I should be able to modify this lisp to suit future needs. Lastly, I haven't added any error catching as I'm not at that stage yet. Any help is greatly appreciated. W10x45 (W250x67).dwg

Tabs view question, please help
Monyqx posted a topic in AutoCAD GeneralI use AutoCAD Lt 2007, and 2009 at work and I clicked or typed something and I do not see the tabs on the bottom any more, where all the pages are. I have a big drawing with about 15 different sheets and I cannot see the tabs like I used to. I had never had that happen before and I have been using autocad for years... it is kind of embarrassing really. Can someone help? No matter what I do I cannot get the tabs view back on. It probably is a really simple thing, but I have no clue.
