Bits and Pcs / Re: Alternatives to headset for Skype?

Thanks, but they are still "headphones".   :oops:  We've already got something similar.  Under ideal circumstances I'd like something just like it was taken from a conventional phone.

AutoLISP (Vanilla / Visual) / Re: License server

Another question on this is.... can it change during a session?

If you fire up AutoCAD and it grabs a license from LIC01, but then an hour layer LIC01 goes down.
Presuming AutoCAD knows to go find LIC02, will it do it without a restart, and would your code know about this change?

In a most basic form, this will work.


Code: [Select]



(defun c:foo ()
  (setq sel (entsel "\nSelect Text"))
  (setq ent (entget (car sel)))
  (setq str (cdr (assoc 1 ent)))


  (setq sel (entsel "\nSelect Pipe/Structure"))
  (setq ent (car sel))
  (setq obj (vlax-ename->vla-object ent))
  (vla-put-name obj str)
)

rkmcswain,
The asset number is a piece of text in the drawing, they are also available as object data assigned to line work in the drawing.

Thanks,

CAD General / Re: Copy Paste in Autocad importing other styles.
« Last post by rkmcswain on March 28, 2017, 03:44:30 pm »
In between the copy and the paste (in other words, after you do the copy) --- open your %temp% folder, find the latest file with a name like this [A$C64A2528C.DWG] and then open it. Does this extra stuff exist in that file?


And is it just one text style and dimstyle? Because the current dimstyle and textstyle get brought over.

AutoLISP (Vanilla / Visual) / Batch block construction from csv or excel
« Last post by coulteri on March 28, 2017, 03:27:20 pm »
Hi all,

I have an information database of plants in excel. I would like to make tool palletes for my design work in ZWCAD so I need to create a large number of blocks with unique names. In fact these blocks are the same, but have only unique name (e.g. number) but different attributes value. They consist of graphic symbol, one centerpoint and few attributes such as "plant name", "plant shortcut", "density of plants per square meter" and so on. There are plenty of possibilities how to construct large number of blocks with one block instance. But is it possible to make plenty of the same blocks (e.g. using one existing block as an example) with unique names and different attribute values in one step?

Thanks for your reply!

Land Lubber / Geographically Positioned / Civil 3D pipe network
« Last post by cyclops on March 28, 2017, 02:34:47 pm »
I have a drawing with a civil 3d pipe network (structures & pipes),
I have a drawing with the cities asset numbers.
I need to add the asset number to the civil 3d pipe network structures & pipes.

How can I automate this process with very little user interaction, can a lisp routine let me select the asset number, then select the structure/pipe that needs the asset number.

The lisp routine would add the asset number to the structure/pipe "NAME" component.

Thanks for the help in advance.
