i tried to draw a circle with COM via PyAcad.Net and it worked.
Code: [Select]
from System import Array,Type
import clr
clr.AddReferenceToFileAndPath(r"c:\Program Files\IronPython\Tutorial\AutoCAD.dll") #path to the assembly generated from acax17enu.tlb by tlbimp.exe from netsdk
from AutoCAD import *
import Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices as ap
doc = ap.Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument.AcadDocument
acadApp = doc.Application
doc.ActiveSpace == AcActiveSpace.acModelSpace
pnt = Array.CreateInstance(Type.GetType("System.Double"),3)
for i,coord in enumerate(doc.Utility.GetPoint(Prompt = "\ncenter of the circle: ")):
pnt.SetValue(coord,i)
circle = doc.ModelSpace.AddCircle(pnt,100)
circle.color = ACAD_COLOR.acMagenta
acadApp.ZoomExtents()

Very nice work.

Also very nice to see some people doing some exploring with the PyAcad.NET code.

Something like this would work for Bricscad as well

Thank you. I'm going to rewrite some VBA examples (AutoCAD ActiveX and VBA Reference) in Python later in my spare time
I think PyAcad.Net is  cool but
we need full-featured IronPython IDE (with visual UI designer) integrated in AutoCAD. A script launcher is not enough.

There are a couple of options for an IronPython IDE, SharpDevelop has an IronPython addin and you can also integrate IronPython into VS2005 and VS2008 (you can just ue the vs2008 ide shell for free for this one).

I have a few links at work, I'll post them tomorrow if you're interested.

As Mick said you can always visually layout your UI using SharDevelop 3.0 which as IronPython support. You could also create all the from skeleton in C# or VB.NET, compile it to a dll and inherit it in an IronPython class. That is very trivial.

Also if anyone has the time and wants to try their hand at a simple pyacad.net script editor that runs in AutoCAD as a separate project I certainly wouldn't object. Might even be easy with dotnetfireball.

After looking at the code, I think it would be easy enough for Tim to add references to AutoCAD’s COM Api, so you wouldn’t have to do this
clr.AddReferenceToFileAndPath(…)

Check this out, I added a new layout “MyLayout” to Bricscad, using this code, my DRXNET and PyBCadDotNet  :laugh:

Code: [Select]
#thanks to kwb just because
import System
import BricscadApp as OdAp
import BricscadDb as OdDb
import DRXNET.OdAp as ObApB

application = ObApB.Application.AcadApplication
document = application.ActiveDocument
myLayout = document.Layouts.Add("MyLayout")

and a line  :-o

Code: [Select]
#thanks to kwb
import System
import BricscadApp as OdAp
import BricscadDb as OdDb
import DRXNET.OdAp as ObApB

from System import Array,Type

application = ObApB.Application.AcadApplication
document = application.ActiveDocument;

pt1 = Array.CreateInstance(Type.GetType("System.Double"),3)
pt1.SetValue(0, 0)
pt1.SetValue(0, 1)
pt1.SetValue(0, 2)

pt2 = Array.CreateInstance(Type.GetType("System.Double"),3)
pt2.SetValue(100, 0)
pt2.SetValue(100, 1)
pt2.SetValue(0, 2)

line = document.ModelSpace.AddLine(pt1,pt2);
line.Update();

I'm still having trouble understanding why anyone would want to get at AutoCAD through COM in PyAcad.NET when you have the entire .NET API available to you.

This is a perfect example of the kind of stuff I love to see. It's the true hacker spirit.

Why not? For simple scripts, like adding a layout, it’s much easier to use COM. While I don’t use COM much, I know it’s in the toolbox

Thanks I just wanted to see If I could do it  :-)
