Plot multiple layers via script

Recommended Posts

pharrold

Hi,

 

I have a script that will plot layers automatically without me going into layer manager and changing them and then clicking plot.

 

The drawings i will be working with are electrical, they have many layers in one drawing. the layers are not sequentially numbered so makes the script harder to produce.

 

In theory i wanted a vB program were i have check boxes of the layeers and then the layers checked are pasted into the script.

 

Has anyone got any ideas?

 

the script is as follows:

I would write a vba or lisp a simple 1 would be just step through the layer table and answer y or n then it would write a script answer to turn off the unwanted.

 

You could populate a list with layer names and have a remove/add button as you pick in a dcl or form then press ok to finish.

 

You can also create layer groups and save, say all currently "on" within the normal layer manager.

 

Also current layer 1 line (setvar "clayer" 019) this is ok in scripts even though its lisp
