cut lines
« on: October 04, 2004, 10:33:07 AM »
i was just wondering if anybody has a routine for inserting cutlines. i'm looking for something that will insert 2 cutlines allowing the user to pick the distance between them then allowing the user to trim out the objects between. anyone have something like that?

I think i know where your going with this one.Are you hoping to use the cut lines to cut a piece of pipework so that it no longer looks like it inetersects with another?

no not at all i'm in metal fabrication and just want an easy cutline routine instead of having to place one then place another then trim. i would like to be able to place them both then have those two lines be selected as trim lines and just selected the lines i'd like to trim all in one routine. wala done...

How would you place them, the cut lines?
How do you do it now, exactly that is?
Do you pick an existing line to offset?
Do you draw two lines?
If so how do you determine where to draw them?Do you have a centerline object?
If you want a routine to do a specific task, you must define the task specifically. 8)

Your trying to do a similar thing to the thread I posted,never worked how to do it though.Your trying to add two lines and have them trim whats inside them.Im trying to do that but then have the two lines deleted,once theyve trimed.Curently have to create two lines,trim inside them and then delete them,bit like a triming template,its annoyingly slow when you have 100's of pipe intersections.

Sorry I don't remember the thread, can you point me to it?
Or discribe exactly what you are trying to do?

heh.. CAB, I was thinking of reposting that yesterday when I saw the thread but the original was so lame and I wrote it so long ago I was a bit embarrassed about it.
I have been meaning to revisit it for so long to accommodate using any angle for input but .. y'know how it goes... just never got around to it.

(it's always embarrassing when your "early" lisps come back to haunt you !).. but hopefully you've prompted me to revisit it again in the near future.

Yes, we learned a lot in the last two years.
I to have many lisp that when I look at them again I wonder why I did it that way.
But at least you got the job done & I have been using this lisp for a year, so thanks
for that. I wrote a single break line routine some time back that could be drawn at
any angle and I was going to update yours to include that feature but as you say
I never got around to it. :)

hey cab tried it out and it does what i want sometimes. it seems to only trim the stuff out if the cutline extends far past the object. if not the trim gets all screwed up. is this what you meant about fixing the trim part? anyhow works pretty nice so far good job.

so what's up with this routine should i begin modifying small stuff in it or are you still refining it cab. i would like to have ortho turned on and have my osnaps reset upon exiting but don't want to modify it if you are going to update it???

Can you post a drawing example of when it fails to trim.
I can not recreate the error.

I updated the code posted above with changes to osnaps.
Yes, more to come.
Still can not recreate your error.

i can update the simple things hendie but solving the entire riddle is kind of beyond my knowledge at this point. besides i didn't want to do work i was sure cab was already doing to improve the routine. cab i'll post a picture shortly ok.

OK,here is the updated code.
Still has an issue with lines to be trimmed that run through the Z part
of the pline. If the line to be trimmed runs through 3 times some of the
line may not be trimmed. There also an issue with lines that just protrude
into the trim space but are closer that the trim distance. i set the trim
distance at (break line length / 70) which works out to be 36/70= 0.51
That is 1/2 inch on a 36 inch break line.
If this is not close enough I'll change it.

Hey HypoSmurf, I have one I wrote a while back that does what you need.  Check this out and let me know:

[code](defun c:TR2 (/ p1 p2 e1 e2 d1)
  (setvar "cmdecho" 0)
  (prompt "\nIndicate TRIM planes: ")
  (setq p1 (getpoint))
  (setq p2 (getpoint p1))
  (command nil nil nil "point" "@")
  (setq e1 (entlast))
  (entdel e1)
  (command "line" p1 p2 "")
  (setq e2 (entnext e1))
  (prompt "\nIndicate 2nd TRIM plane: ")
  (setq p3 (getpoint))
  (setq p4 (getpoint p3))
  (command nil nil nil "point" "@")
  (setq e3 (entlast))
  (entdel e3)
  (command "line" p3 p4 "")
  (setq e4 (entnext e3))
   (while
    (setq d1 (entsel "\nSelect object(s) to TRIM: "))
    (command "TRIM" e2 e4 "" d1 "")
   );while
  (entdel e2)
  (entdel e4)
(setvar "cmdecho" 1)
 (princ)
)

Dan,
Here is the latest code.
Reduced the trim distance to catch any close lines.
Had the routine trim twice to get any lines that the first
may have missed. Revised the method to get a fence as the old
method had a gotcha in it.

Code: [Select]
;;; Lisp to draw Single or Double "Z" Break Lines
;;;                 A.Henderson 2002

;;;  Modified By Charles Alan Butler  10/06/2004
;;;  To allow any angle and to trim lines that
;;;  do not run through both break symbols
;;;

cab works great now. i changed a couple things though. i removed the single or double prompt at the beginning as i only use single and kept picking instead. and of course i changed the layer. one question though if i wanted it to trim automatically instead of having to say yes how would i modify it. i tried just taking this section  out of the trim function but get an error



Code: [Select]
     (initget "Y N")
      (setq ans (getkword "\n Do you wish to trim the lines now ? (Y or N) <N>"))
      (if (= ans "Y")

Change as follows from this
Code: [Select]
     (initget "Y N")
      (setq ans (getkword "\n Do you wish to trim the lines now ? (Y or N) <N>"))
      (if (= ans "Y")

to this
Code: [Select]
     ;;(initget "Y N")
      ;;(setq ans (getkword "\n Do you wish to trim the lines now ? (Y or N) <N>"))
      (if T

Or remove all these lines
Code: [Select]
     (initget "Y N")
      (setq ans (getkword "\n Do you wish to trim the lines now ? (Y or N) <N>"))
      (if (= ans "Y")
        (progn

       <keep lines here>

        ) ; progn
      ) ;_ endif

Hey HypoSmurf, I have one I wrote a while back that does what you need. Check this out and let me know:

Thanks PDJ it does work but I have a slight probelm with it.When Im asked to indicate trim planes I have to guess the location of my trim planes,either side of the line.Both trim planes will be the same offset distance from the the line theyre parallel to.Its like I have two intersecting lines and I need to cut for example 50mm off each side of one of the lines at the point of intersection.

No need to upload a drawing I think youve hit the nail on the head CAB.Cheers :dood: What is the top section for (2dvararray->list ) ?Just another way of skinny that cat?Cant get it to work,firstly it brings up my units dialogue box and then when I add 2DVARARRAY->LIST to the command line it doesnt recognise it.Thanks anyway I have what I need,but Im just curious.

It is a subroutine for the main function, should have been localized.
See the code above, I moved it.

See here    
   
Code: [Select]
(setq coords (vla-get-coordinates obj1))
     (setq lst (2dvararray->list coords))

the vla-get-coordinates returns the coordinates in a list but the trim command
needs the list to be a point list. The 2dvararray->list converts this
Code: [Select]
(-145.23 163.22 -93.8048 202.378 -54.624 179.128 6.59602 203.601 34.7572 183.411)
to this
Code: [Select]
((-145.23 163.22)(-93.8048 202.378)(-54.624 179.128)(6.59602 203.601)(34.7572 183.411))

Ive removed the comments as CAB noted in his additional comments so I can choose the offset distance.Ive chosen 10 units in this case.
As simple as that modification is thought Id add it so any other dumb arses like myself arent scratching their head for a while trying to work it out.

With the new talk about vlax-curve- I changed the code to use it.

Code: [Select]
;;  Trims at an offset distance from line or lwpline
;;  Select the line, enter an amount say 5
;;  Trims all crossing lines within 5 units of eather side
;;

Although I really rate this lisp,one problem I do encounter is that when its implemented on a line/polyline it will carry out a trim either side of this line on objects out of the screen along the entire length of the line/polyline.Problem with that is when you have a busy drawing its not always to see what has been cut when your zoomed into a area.Is there a way to just isolate the lisp to focus on one are or say just two crossing lines?

Hi,...

I have created this routine for endpipe..
but you can use-it and change the end block as you wish.

Keep smile...
