I need a complicated lisp for take information to attributes and choose blocks in cad file.

So, I am working about Building Automation Systems, I am preparing "point list" and " connection diagram" for a project. My manager wants a lisp from me for choose blocks and insert data from excel point list automatic. Can anybody help me for it? I have not any idea about lisp language.(

I am searching some solutions last 2 days. if possible, a lisp will look to point list, choose module type (there are 3 type modules, so 3 blocks.) and draw modules as example and will write module no, cable no (C1-xxx), equipment name and description to attributes.

I attached point list and example blocks to here. Thanks for your helps.

No code just some suggestions


Your dwg its all seperate lines and text for the connections make into block.


1 make a csv file from excel easy part


Read 1 line csv and make a List of that line pull out variables like C10-202, 6-8, insert a block that is the 3 parts, . Insert attribute values. c10-201 has 2-4


I don't do this type of work but some rule in there about 2&4 no 3 etc the symbols change automatically from excel/csv info.


I think its achievable but for me not my industry.

Had another look you need to make parts of the dwg into blocks start with the G-U-M and the B-M the Cxx-XXX the universal module 1-33.


The 1-33 you can turn attributes on and off so number will disappear, or else put each number in 33 attributes probably easier. The symbols may need additional blocks.


If you post a sample dwg with the excel columns marked would make much easier to think about it.


Lastly this may border on a commercial answer.
