"DCLIP" as like "XCLIP"
« on: March 22, 2012, 10:51:14 PM »
Hi all,

Anyboy try a routine as like "XCLIP" command for curent drawing objects.

I am in a situation to develop a command which is going to trim/remove all entities in the drawing except selected rectangular region.

Kindly share your thoughts on these area.

Thanks for your support.

Xclip does not remove objects from the drawing so it is not the same as a dclip function like you describe.

There is/was a tool in the Express Tools which did the same, cutting everything inside a polyline. I can not find it anymore, I thought it was named CookieCutter.

You can also have a look here, where you can find an excellent lisp tool to cut and trim inside or outside a polyline.;all

The conclusion is justified that the initialization of the development of critical subsystem optimizes the probability of success to the development of the technical behavior over a given period.
