Programming on associative and nonassociative dimensions

Recommended Posts

Hi CADmates,

 

I have drawings full of dimensions overlapping on each other.

Should any one let me know how to get rid of this position via programming?

 

I tried some coding to move text of dimensions, but no success on associative dimensions.

 

;|
(MT:Move:DimensionText<-Ename (car (entsel)) nil 0 1 0)
|;
(defun MT:Move:DimensionText<-Ename
      (%ename% %absolute|relative% %x% %y% %z% / *entlist* *assoc11*)
(setq *entlist* (entget %ename% '("*")))
(cond
 ((/= (cdr (assoc 0 *entlist*)) "DIMENSION") nil)
 (T
  (setq *assoc11* (cdr (assoc 11 *entlist*))); text position
  (setq *assoc11*
   (if %absolute|relative%
    (list %x% %y% %z%)
    (list (+ %x% (car *assoc11*)) (+ %y% (cadr *assoc11*)) (+ %z% (caddr *assoc11*)))
   )
  )
  (setq *entlist* (subst (cons 11 *assoc11*) (assoc 11 *entlist*) *entlist*))
  (entmod *entlist*)
 )
)
)

I appreciate any help

hi Ahabkhah

my $0.02 maybe vla-method?

(defun MT:Move:DimensionText<-Ename (%ename% [color="red"]%absolute|relative%[/color] pt / obj)
(setq obj (vlax-ename->vla-object %ename% ))
(if [color="red"]%absolute|relative%[/color]
(vla-put-TextMovement obj 0)
(vla-put-TextMovement obj 2); 1= with leader
 )
(vla-put-TextPosition obj (vlax-3d-point pt))
 )

im not sure %absolute|relative% means?

or (acdimenableupdate nil) ?

 

so i just assume t= relocate text & dim , nil= just relocate text ?

 

(MT:Move:DimensionText<-Ename (car(entsel)) [color="red"]t[/color] (getpoint))

my apology if it doesn't help
