CAD colors to True RGB Colors
« on: March 17, 2017, 07:19:53 am »
Is there an easy way to convert all the standard CAD colors to True Color RGB? I have a drawing that has a all the CAD colors that are drawn in rectangle form with the color hard coded. I was hoping to convert those over.

Thanks for any help.

not an easy way to adjust the drawing, but possibly you could trick it by adjusting your plot style when printing.  There may be a lisp routine out there, it wouldnt make much sense to write one for a one and done, as it would take longer to write the routine then it would to just change the colors manually.

sorry, that last post wasnt exactly helpful, so I did some searching.  Lee-Mac has some stuff, here is one, not sure if it does what you want, but it looks like the coding wasnt as complex as I thought it would be:
