LISP and AutoCAD LT
« on: December 03, 2021, 01:28:18 AM »
I had a few LISP routines which I'm trying to run on AutoCAD LT.
It looks like it can't be done. Is there anyway around this at all?

Nope but you can install Trueview to get access to accoreconsole.exe but i don't know if that will run lisp's natively.

Thanks for responding.
What is "accoreconsole.exe" and why do I have to install Trueview?

Its command line to run scripts on multiple files. 
See the video gets going around 4 mins.

Its a work around but 
1 idk if it will work and
2 might be too much of a hassle to use with your lisp's becaues I don't know if the drawing has to be closed to use it.

OK thanks.
This is quite complicated and I will need time to digest.

Please let me know if anyone has used it on LT.

Bonjour

I think the only answer to the original question is missing,
and the answer is NO
It is not possible to use the programming with AutoCAD LT (Lisp or VBA)

The shame is that Autodesk took a company to court who developed a lisp interface for LT and yes lisp did work in LT. It is no longer available.

Next time you think about upgrading buy Bricscad or Intellicad or there are more all support Lisp. You may be surprised how cheap to change.

Work this out a task takes 20 minutes in LT, takes 1 minute using lisp. ok so 19 times your pay rate/minute you just saved or time at home with the children.

Just complementing BIGAL's comment.
https://www.bricsys.com/en-intl/bricscad-lite/compare/

I recommend to people that I only work on BricsCAD.
It has an excellent cost-benefit ratio, is faster and apparently is not a patch on other programs.

I must emphasize that this is just my opinion on the matter and hope to be approved in the BricsCAD Developers Network in the future.

GstarCAD is another option and cheaper than BricsCAD. BUT, it has some flaws. If those flaws don't affect you than it's 'better' in my opinion. GstarCAD is closer in comparison to AutoCAD LT: The interface is more familiar and it supports what is basically the same dynamic block functionality. The two biggest issues I recall with GstarCAD were the draw order (I'd have to restart the program to get my draw order to fix itself) and poor PDF attachment support (bugs while printing). The draw order issue might be fixed in the lastest version, but I'm not sure. BricsCAD has better PDF attachment support and none of the draw order issues (as far as I know) but lacks a built-in dynamic block editor (but you can use dynamic blocks). BricsCAD also has a really good LISP IDE (but only important if you write your own code).

There are real reasons people don't use the CAD clones (I almost hate calling them 'clones' these days), they have their drawbacks. But I hope they gain popularity because I think that they will be the ones really keeping LISP alive.
