I have many routines which will increment numbers sequentially from a starting number, with prefix or suffix, but none of them can handle the insertion of a block, and allow entry of data into the attributes. I am looking for a routine in Lisp for Autocad 2002, which will allow me to insert a predefined block with attributes, and increment number each time the block is inserted into the drawing. Various flange specifications are included. I'll pick it on the screen, make it easier for you to see. It will automaticly increase the numbers as you place them. The user can exit this mode and return to standard text placement by pressing Enter, Space, or by Right-clicking the mouse at the prompt. These would be random position on the drawing.
If I did, try it yourself. Then load the lisp file in one of three ways: 1. Well if you do get a lil extra time just let me know. But they are well worth sharing. All products provided here are unsupported and without warranty of any kind. It inserts a specified block and automatically fills its first resp.
The program then automatically draws the circles and numbers on the current layer of the drawing with no further input see below for a typical result. I'm going to say the start increment of 1 with increment of 1. It provides addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and conversion operations for linear feet, inches, and fractions of inches, and for square foot values. I am not sure what you are telling me. Join your peers on the Internet's largest technical engineering professional community. Main Dialog Preview About Dialog Preview Creating an Array The program also offers the ability for the user to array the selected object, with the content automatically incremented sequentially for each object in the array. I apretiate what you have given me, it is a very good start to what I would lokie to use.
The text height is set at 1. Each of them is sorted depending on whether you select a clockwise or counterclockwise direction. When you pick X, it goes in ascending order. The start point for numbering expects that you select an endpoint of a tip, and this will be one of the corner tips, as numbering should start at any of the four corners. The wblock symbol can then be picked visually from the icon menu and inserted into any drawing, using multiple options for insertion scale, angle, etc.
Cad Corner specifically disclaims any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular use. It's easy to and it's free. So it should go from left to right. Following a valid selection, the text content of the selected annotation object will be updated to display the incrementing string. Array Example 1 Demonstrating the difference between Spacing Vector and Endpoint specification, with Object Rotation set to 'Aligned'. This page has been translated for your convenience with an automatic translation service.
When inserting the block the Ref Number attribute would need to be entered and displayed in the drawing inside a circle as part of the block, with a fixed prefix or suffix. When the restore button is pressed var. After you have picked your last point, enter a return. Program to process of several polylines simultaneously. The BlockC command takes the selection set of existing blocks and fills renumbers their first resp. Programming Notes The program starts with my usual error handler and system-variable management functions. It inserts a number with a circle around it, and increments the number by one.
The Offset Factor has behaviour identical to that of the Background Mask Offset Factor wherein the offset is dependent upon the text height: an offset factor of 1. . Now let's see what else can we do. Array Example 2 Demonstrating Perpendicular rotation and a fixed zero rotation. For those of you who use a set back or K-factor chart there is a routine on the main menu to adjust for this.
The routine changes the original definition of the block within the current drawing. For example: The block will contain attributes such as Ref Number, Demand Units, Flow Rate, Pipe Size. The user can enter optional Prefix, Middle and Suffix text, and has the option to increment any or all sections, with the ability to increment alphabetical text and use decimals and leading zeros. Would a lisp be able to achieve this type of thing. For counterclockwise numbering, only enter the W point.
To answer your question, yes it can. You can see that it had the number 1 and then it added 5 to it and it got 6, add the next number to it and got 11, and added the next number to it and got 16. You are going to tell it the number you want it to start with and the increment. The array spacing vector describes the vector between each successive object in the array. Let's do that one more time. If I havn't figured it out by then. Make it the size you want and include a single text attribute cneter justified inside the circle.
