How , or where should I search ?

Recommended Posts

Since 2 days I searched for Bearing and distance to draw , I only found , from Drawn , get bearing and distance .

Mine  question is like a kinder garden pupil   at ACAD school.

There is a LSP to draw polylines, or consecutives lines give this data

Origin could be 0,0,0

end at vertex 9 .

My source is :  para lisp.png

you want to draw polyline?

2. make list by LM:str->lst http://www.lee-mac.com/stringtolist.html

- cbread is an example of simply reading the copied text, and cbpaste includes a way to separate rows. Columns are separated by \t .

3. make point list by (polar) from 0,0,0 origin

+

or you can get data by excel directly

this is beginner level because i'm beginner, so there are a lot of overlapping parts,

but I made it so that there is no problem in reading and writing data if only the row no. and column no. are known. Easy to put in a loop.

@exceed, Thank for it I will study it .

I don't know if this can help you with what you're trying to do but, you can do this:

`(command "pline" "0,0" "@181.91<0" "@230.26<81.36" "@79.44<172.0113" "@147.86<161.0922222" "@278.74<43.53611109")`

But the angle should be in degrees, and it's measured from the X axis to the line, I don't know how to do that with entmake, just with the points or coordinates

Sad to say it do not work , as I said it are INTERNAL angles from each to each side

The blue lines is as it is , the brown is as your tip.

Ah.. I only realized your problem after writing this. so this is not completed routine.

your excel has missing vertex in the middle. (3-4 and 6-7)

you can find the total missing angle by using the formula for summing the interior angles of a polygon,

total angle = 180*(n-2)

n is number of lines

but it will be difficult to distribute it. i think

anyway, this works by copying only 2 columns length and internal angle. if no points are missing

command prompt like this.

```Command: CPOLY
vertex no. 1 ~ 2 = length - 181.91 / internal angle - 0.0 (= 0.0 deg) / global angle - 0.0 (= 0.0 deg)
vertex no. 2 ~ 3 = length - 230.26 / internal angle - 1.48457 (= 85.0597 deg) / global angle - 1.65702 (= 94.9403 deg)
vertex no. 3 ~ 4 = length - 79.44 / internal angle - 3.00217 (= 172.011 deg) / global angle - 1.79645 (= 102.929 deg)
vertex no. 4 ~ 5 = length - 147.86 / internal angle - 2.81159 (= 161.092 deg) / global angle - 2.12645 (= 121.837 deg)
vertex no. 5 ~ 6 = length - 278.74 / internal angle - 0.759848 (= 43.5361 deg) / global angle - 4.5082 (= 258.301 deg)
vertex no. 6 ~ 7 = length - 159.8 / internal angle - 2.99865 (= 171.81 deg) / global angle - 4.65114 (= 266.491 deg)
point list - ((0 0 0) (181.91 0.0 0.0) (162.081 229.405 0.0) (144.307 306.831 0.0) (66.3105 432.446 0.0) (9.78823 159.497 0.0) (0.00637736 -0.00353716 0.0))```

@exceed I will it tomorrow , it is 11 pm here , winter time .

Please try to do by reading a csv file as the attached. AS I think it would be simple to understand.

My \$0.05 if its a house lot title her in AUS then its enter dist & Brg of sides. We would do this manually using enter distance, enter DDD.MMSS and a enter to finish. The only tricky bit is sometimes the brg needs 180 added. It does not use excel rather you read plan use if usefull, a bit rough pulled together quickly form a bigger survey routine. The full routine does a closure check and asks to accept rather than use pline "C".

Since 2 days I searched for Bearing and distance to draw , I only found , from Drawn , get bearing and distance .

Mine  question is like a kinder garden pupil   at ACAD school.

There is a LSP to draw polylines, or consecutives lines give this data

Origin could be 0,0,0

end at vertex 9 .

I think that the answer to your original request is that no one has written such a lisp using data such as yours. From the responses, it is clear that more information is required.

The shape is easy enough to draw using your data. I assumed the vertexes go Counter-clockwise round the shape, so the internal angles are clockwise from the previous line.

It is easiest to draw internal angles by drawing two lines on top of each other and then rotating one by the internal angle. The angle system does not have to be changed, just put "r" at the end of the numbers, and AutoCad knows it is a radian angle.

If this shape is to be used in mapping, then the bearing of the start line is needed, as is the coordinate of the starting vertex.

Would (polar .... ) be what you are looking for? Create a list of points and then entmake a polyline from them? (https://help.autodesk.com/view/ACD/2016/ENU/?guid=GUID-6A84BFD3-8788-45B1-AB52-5E83F0C5286E)

You'd need to do a sum along the way to work out the absolute angle rather than the angle from the previous line, but since your initial table said it was all anticlockwise rotation (CCW) that makes the maths a bit easier

Hi @ all you , the fact is that I have to pass from PDF or  jpg or whatever to DWG old surveyor planes , i my region , small mountains.

like it

as suggested  @eldon

It is easiest to draw internal angles by drawing two lines on top of each other and then rotating one by the internal angle. The angle system does not have to be changed, just put "r" at the end of the numbers, and AutoCad knows it is a radian angle.

I did it so

and after it I had to draw the subdivision and join

as red point are divisions , tilde union or join

Hi devitg, can not see in image does the lines have a BRG & Dist label ? Here in AUS the angle is not shown. Can see something next to lines.

Share on other sites

What you see , is what I did  taking from a ACAD.dwg printed as PDF , It is the way our CADASTRAL system work , all online , there is no more paper .

Also they offer old scanned from paper plans.

I did it the same way as

@eldon suggested.

I read the data from the pdf, and did the same way as above.

I have to test the way as

@exceed show , I will arrange it  as to read from a CSV file. I will make such csv  , reading each by each polygon and type at the csv . for each polygon , then by align I fit all the new dwg.

I don't know your works well, so I don't know how much accuracy you need

so, this is just my funny thinking

this screenshot is result of bmp, with removing background color (255 255 255) with 20% range

It only prints horizontal lines or dots, so it can't be used right away, but it's convenient to grab a snap. correct ratio

Larger screenshots and higher removal rates will give you better contrast and better results.

Hi devitg can you zoom in on a line there is something there but image is hard to see. Is it BRG & Dist ? That is the way my code is written enter values from plan.

Hello,

I Think it's simple. All you have to know is that given two alignments, p1-p2 and p2p3, measuring counterclockwise, the internal angle is related to the "angle" used in the  command "polar".

The internal angle is equal to pi plus the bearing of the first alignment minus the bearing of the second alignment, thus, the second bearing, which is what you are looking for is pi plus the first bearing minus the internal angle.

For example, I drew the last alignment this way:

(command "_line" p5 (setq p6 (polar p5 4.50818634715917 278.74)) "")

If you start from an excel spreadsheet, you can get all the points there. I give  you all of them.

I'll upload the lisp asap, but you've got the solution right now.

Share on other sites

Hello again,

Assuming you get the lists of the points and angles, it would go more or less like this, supposing the first bearing is 0 as you said. If not, it's easy to change:

```(defun c:plan()
(setq distances (list 1 2 3 4) angles (list 1 2 3 4))
(setq angles2 angles)
(setq bear (list 0) angles2 (cdr angles2)  distances2 (cdr distances) points (list (list 0 0)))

(while
(setq bear (cons (+ pi (- (car bear) (car angles2))) bear))
(setq points (cons (polar (car points) (car bear) (car distances2)) points))
(command "_line" (car points) (cadr points) "")
(setq angles2 (cdr angles2))
)
(command "_line" (car points) (list 0 0) "")

)```
