Pavement Coordinates LISP!


Recommended Posts

Hi All:


I'm looking for a lisp that will help accomplish the most mundane part of drafting - creating a coordinates table.


I've found lisps on the internet that can do this, and actually work very well, here's an example:




This actually works great and the output is almost exactly what I want, the only problem is that the table is simply made up of lines / text. Rather than an actual Table with Fields. And while I can re-create the table over and over again, other users of the drawing (that don't have that lisp) will have to manually edit the text.


So I'm looking for a lisp that will allow a user to:


1) create points / preferably with a point number

2) automatically outputs the coordinates / points number to a table in the layout view, with the correct text size, depending on scale

3) instead of putting text in the table, will put fields that are linked to each point so that if the points are moved, a simple regen of the table will update the coordinates.


This can be done manually by Insert field -> Objects -> Object -> [select point] ->position -> Filter X / Y / X.


Sorry if this has been asked before, I'm new to the site and haven't been able to find it yet.


Really appreciate any help anyone can provide.
