Replacing Layers with other ones

Recommended Posts

pefi

I know I'm too late, but there is a simple method of creating dumb lisp scripts (no programming skills required). If someone can use autocad command line then he/she can write scripts like this one.

An example of renaming 3 layers (aaa, bbb, ccc -> AAA, BBB, CCC)

 

(defun c:renlay ()
     (command "-layer" "r" "aaa" "AAA" "")
     (command "-layer" "r" "bbb" "BBB" "")
     (command "-layer" "r" "ccc" "CCC" "")
)

How it was built?

1. type -layer in command line

2. hit "r" for rename

3. type layer name to be changed "aaa"

4. type new layer name "AAA"

5. hit enter "" to exit the command

6. merge it all together into "-layer" "r" "aaa" "AAA" ""

7. add (command in front and add a closing bracket

8. done!

 

I often use that kind of lisp for plotting:

 

(command "-plot"     "Y"         ""
        "plotter_name_here" "A1"
        "M"     "L"         "N"     "E"
        "F"     "C"         "Y"     "A1_COLOR.CTB"
        "Y"     "N"         "N"     "N"
        "N"     "N"         "Y"
)

thank you all for the help . Tomorrow I will try the other method as well. After all we are trying to work as productive and as fast as we can, and I'm sure that every of the methods have its own advantages \m/ cheers

I think the lisp ReMark posted is the fastest way to go of the methods given in here so far. There may be a way to process the drawing without opening it up but that is something for BlackBox or Lee-Mac to handle.
