I don't know how many of you use the chamfer command instead of trim.  Sometimes it's a lot quicker, but many of the folks I've talked with at seminars etc... never thought of it.

polar ILO ortho

[opinionated moment]Who in their right mind would continue using ortho, when polar is so much more flexible. Everybody I work with or have worked with uses ortho still, even when I've shown them how much better it can be.[/opinionated moment]

Does anybody here not use polar, even if you still use ortho for any reason?

More unused commands:
From
Temporary tracking
parallel
tracking <-obsolete
extension
apparent intersection

Me neither...
Ortho will do for now, but plan to 'someday' figure out what tracking actually does and how to work it.

Gotta agree with Kate.. Mine is called f0 as in fillet with a 0 radius..

Code: [Select]
(defun C:F0()
  (command "FILLET" "R" "0" "FILLET")
)


I also like my xt routine that allows you to extend a line(s) to a temporary line that disappears when the routine is done..

Code: [Select]
(defun c:xt (/ p1 p2 e1 e2 d1)
  (prompt "\nDraw line to extend to: ")
  (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))
   (while
    (setq d1 (entsel "\nSelect object to extend: "))
    (command "EXTEND" e2 "" d1 "")
   );while
  (entdel e2)
 (princ)
)

Beautiful. :LOL

For the rest of you ORTHO-heads. Don't want to sound opinionated, but what's to figure out? Polar is just like ortho, but you can set it to different angles. I set the polarangle increment to 15 so I can draw 30, 45 and 60 degrees as well as the traditional ortho angles, plus the advantage polar has over ortho is the ability to move away from ortho without having to turn it off. As soon as polar came out I've been using it. It boggles my mind that I feel that I'm the only one who uses it. I'm sure that's not the case, but I haven't met anyone yet who uses polar. Anybody? As far as using the temporary tracking points, set them to shift to select and figure them out. For those using LT, I feel for you. They have polar, but not tracking of any sort except FROM and that's not even done right.
