  1. I'm looking for a way to extract the X, Y and Z values from a set of selected blocks (there may be several types of blocks) and then have it export to a txt file. I'm not sure if it's possible but I'd like to have it export in the order that the blocks were placed. The format I'm looking for would be like this: x,y,z x,y,z and so on... I can do it in Microstation but would prefer an Autcad Lisp. Any help is really appreciated!!!!!
  2. I have attached an AutoCAD 2010 file as an example of what i am about to try and explain. Please bare with me. I can export the x/y information in itself using the ptExport.lsp routine. I haven't found a way of exporting the entity information because i can't seem to get that one working. (both lsp files attached) What i actually require is being able to extract the polygon x,y, information along with the corresponding text within the polygon itself i.e ITRD 33651 37, and ideally the entity handle itself. If you understood that, firstly thanks. If you know how to help then i would forever in your debt. Thanks in advance for looking Note i have to do this for somewhere in excess of 5000 polygons!! GULP! Basket.dwg PtExport.lsp gethandle.lsp
  3. Hi Guys, I'm fairly new to this 'lisp' program. I'm a trainee setting out engineer and have a question. How do I display both eastings and northings coordinates on one line? My senior engineer has it on his Auto CAD but got it done from somebody else and he doesn't know how to do it. See Image - Shows coordinates X and Y This is how it should be - Please note I typed them coordinates in myself Any help would be greatly appreciated Taj.
  4. Hi all, I'm new in the forum, but it looks like there are some experts around that can share some knowledge. My problem is the following: I have created a macro in excel that selects a series of points and assigns them some coordinates Easting Northing and RL (X,Y,Z). Then a second macro reorganises all the data and groups it as I need. At the end it creates a script. I'm trying to create some spheres and some 3Dpolylines from the center of the spheres. I think I know how to do that. Since I have X,Y,Z for each point I just got the script to write the following: _Sphere 646063,531851,111 30 text 646093,531881,111 25 0 BH21>> For the polylines I do the same thing with 3Dpoly command. I set my layer, I get the command Sphere, XYZ and diameter. then I add some text. From what I have seen that's the right way to do it. The problem comes when I run the script. It creates the layers fine, it runs the command Sphere but then it crashes because it cannot understand that the numbers separated by "," are actually X,Y,Z. It keeps on asking me to specify the center point for my sphere. I have the feeling that it may have something to do with my AutoCad settings but I'm not exactly sure what. I have searched the web and multiple forums for days with no success. I finally decided to come here and ask people with more experience than me, see if I can get someone to point me in the right direction. Thanks to all in advance!
  5. Hi Guys, Hope I've got the right part of the forum for posting this thread... I am trying to import xyz data into AutoCAD using the multiple - point command, however when I paste the data as part of the command line it does not process the points but pastes the data as text into the model space. I hope I have explained this well enough, sorry if I have not. I have also tried using ascpoint.lsp however I struggled to get to grips with making it produce the points on screen. Thanks in advance.

    Shape Recognition

    Hello Everyone, I have a 3d point cloud data of human head. I have attached few markers (sphere/hemispheres) to the head before scanning the head with laser scanner. I need to find the location (xyz coordinates) of these markers. I was wondering if anyone could help in identifying these markers through shape/pattern recognition or any other technique so that I get the location of the markers, Thanks in advance. Thanks Santosh
