Title: AutoCAD Match Geometry X,Y,Z
Post by: Matthew H on July 14, 2017, 10:22:50 am
Does anyone have a lisp routine that can Match-Properties the geometry properties of a line.
See example picture: "Example_Properties.PNG"

*Match Source Line (Start X, End X) to Destination line.
*Match Source Line (Start Y, End Y) to Destination line.
*Match Source Line (Start Z, End Z) to Destination line.

Normally I copy the Start X, End X of a line and paste it onto the desired line. Same for the Y or Z, Depending on what is needed.

If anyone has a solution to this, I would be much appreciated.

Sorry, don't understand the purpose. Why not just use copy/paste on the line?

The purpose would be in 3D. If I have a center line of a pipe at the correct X and Z coordinates (Color Green). I would want to line it up with the Y coordinates of another line (Color Red).
To solve this I copy the Y Coordinate of the Red Line onto the Green line's properties. (Keep in mind the Green line will not connect to the Red line)

Leverage .x, .y and .z (.xy etc) point filters ftw.

MP, I always forget about Point Filters. Ill have to look into them again.

The use of point filters can reduce the use of temporary construction lines to near zero.
