Insulation hatch

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a hatch for the curvy lines usually associated with insulation?

 

Or send me to a tutorial where I can make my own if you so choose :wink:

How about a linetype? AutoCAD has a linetype named BATTING.

 

I created a LISP routine to load the linetype and draw a line that has the correct scale based on the insulation size and drawing scale...I can give it to you, if you want...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I can't run LISP routines in AutoCAD LT correct?

 

But I will search for that linetype...I didn't even think to check that. Thanks

That's cool...I found the linetype, and scaling the line down wasn't a problem at all. Another problem solved on the cadtutor forums! :shock:

Can you at least give us a little information about what the problem is? Is it a problem with a hatch pattern or a problem with a lisp routine or a problem with a linetype or a problem with scaling? :?

hi,

I use Batting a lot for my insulation sections - I just opened that attachment and all I got was a page full numbers - lots of numbers.

Is there something else I shopuld do to it or have I got something set wrong?

 

cheers,

Here's a more efficient version of that BATTINSUL hatch. It looks the same, but all the unnecessary duplication and differing spacings have been removed.

There's no reason for hatch patterns to contain that level of repetition.

Here is a lisp routine that I got from a friend years ago (still works great)

Hi, pretty new to the Forum and with a Vectorworks background, but slowly (after 5 years!) picking up ACAD. This routine is great but each time I use the command 'Insul' it turns off my OSNAP settings and I have to turn them on again and they've all been turned off by default. Little bit frustrating as I need the OSNAP generally each time I use the Insul lsp routine. Any advice greatly appreciated. :?

Open the insul.lsp wsith a text editor (even Notepad) and comment out this line

 

(setvar "OSMODE" 0)

 

with a semicolon prefix like this.

 

; (setvar "OSMODE" 0)

 

Save the file - you will then keep your osnaps as is.

 

I haven't tested how it will affect the routine's operation but it could be worth a try.

Hi guys.

 

I tried to use the hatch file you provided, but it wont draw curves, but non-continueous lines crossing each other, it is ugly.

 

I tried the lisp routine as well, but once finished setting parameters, it works for a few seconds, countinueously writing: "A" is unkown order", and so on... and then nothing happens.

 

I use AutoCAD 2007 hungarian version.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance.

this is a great lisp routine, but I'm wondering if there's a way to edit it so that the angles of the insulation from one arc to the next are a little steeper? I'd like arcs of the finished batt to come closer together or even touch, but I'm not sure what variables to tweak.

 

thanks!
