AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Labeling Lines With LengthsMar 2, 2012
AutoCAD Field is a great tool for AutoCAD 2005 or later. Fields are a really nice addition that give you quick access to various types of information via TEXT, MTEXT or an Attribute. You can calculate the length of a single AutoCAD object (Line, Circle, Polyline etc.) with AutoCAD Object Field. It works fine, but I have two more questions, and asking you, if you can help me. Using this lisp, i found out two strange things. Example: My units are set to 4 decimal numbers. In one case result shows 5 decimal numbers. Tipster Danny Korem discusses why he prefers to use polylines in AutoCAD, as opposed to lines and arcs. 'Polylines are line and arc sequences that can be created in various ways: One can just use the Polyline command and draw a series of segments (lines or arcs), or one can select a line or an arc using the Pedit option, change the selection to be a polyline, and join other adjacent segments.

Labeling lines with their lengths,
I got the attached lisp file from the web which automatically labels the lines with their length. Resulting the values of the length in the absolute values of the length instead of saying that the length is in inch. i.e, i need to remove the inch sign (') from the suffix of the length.
AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Reduce Polyline With Multiple Vertices To Single PolylineJun 7, 2012
I would like to take all the vertices out of a multiple-vertices polyline so that it reduces to just its start and end points, can this be done?
AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: 3D Polyline To Polyline To Spline With MaxSep 21, 2013
Due to modeling purposes, I need to convert a 3D polyline to a spline. What I have been doing is:
- change polyline fit/smooth to cubic from properties
- convert polyline to spline by typing spline -> object
- method -> fit from properties
You can see the original 3D polyline (green) and the resulting spline (magenta) in the attached drawing.When I zoom in and measure the distance between the two entities at different points along them, at some points the perpendicular distance exceeds 5 millimeters, and I want to ensure the deviation remains under 1 millimeter or even less.
I know I can change the knot parameterization of the spline, and this does work at some locations, but the difference increases at others.Why is there a 5.6 mm difference between the spline fit point and 3D polyline vertex, as measure in the attached drawing?
Now, I can go and manually stretch the fit point to coincide with the vertex. Also, I can add fit points between existing ones to drag the spline closer to the original 3D poly.
However, some of my polys are really long, and it is very time-consuming to do this manually while measuring points along the entities to make sure the distance stays small enough.
how to automate this process? For example a lisp that would maybe take the original vertex points, add say maybe 3 (not too many) new ones between them, and then generate a spline while making sure the deviation is less than the set value of 1mm? I am using AutoCAD 2013.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Change Z Value Only On 3D PolylineAug 23, 2012
I am using acad 2010. I have a contour generator that uses 3d polylines to make contours. I get depressions or tops where I don't want them. I need a lisp routine that will allow me to adjust the z value only on any 3d polyline. I need to raise or lower the z value at any vertex and repeat if necessary. I don't need to prompt the user- I am the user.
AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Set Polyline ElevationJul 19, 2013
I create contour line in TOPOGRAPH program, and I import these polylines to AUTOCAD. I have to set elevation for each polyline manually, and I waste a lot of time doing that.
So looking for lisp doing that automatically. I mean, invoke the command, set the first elevation and them select the polylines.
e.g. The first elevation is 530. The next polyline that I select is 531 and so on.
AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Region To PolylineFeb 17, 2009
For the sake of editing, I sometimes make LWPOLYLINES and convert them to regions so that I can union and subtract and intersect, etc.
then sometimes, like now, I want to work with them like as LWPOLYLINES again.
is there some command I don't know, or some routine or shall I make one?
AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Draw Polyline With Clipping OutsideMar 7, 2012

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Polyline Width And FilletFeb 5, 2013
I've been searching on and off all morning for a lisp routine, without any luck. I'm trying to draw a pline with a pre determined width (5') and be able to draw unlimited line segments then automatically fillet with a pre determined radius (5').
I wrote this generic macro: ^C^CPLINEWID;5;PL;;FILLET;R;5;F;P;LAST; to save SOME time but I want unlimited line segments. Can this be modified or would a lisp be the better route to go?
AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Labeling Polyline AreasMay 4, 2011
Code below, for labeling polyline areas
It works great for what i want, with 2 exceptions the text is to small and the label is not inserted at the centroid of the polyline, rather it is placed outside the polyline.
i am able to increase the text style by adjusting the dimscale before i run the command, however it would be good if the program could do that automatically, i would like the text to be about 300 units high, and for the label to be placed at the centroid of the polyline

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Vertices Of A Polyline SegmentDec 18, 2011
I have to intersect polylines 'POLYLINE' and 'LWPOLINE' with a line and get all the angles of all segments of the polyline that are intersected.
To do this I used a loop that monitors all the vertices of each polyline to find the two vertices of the polyline segment that intersects the line. Unfortunately, these polylines have thousands of vertices and the processing done in this way takes too long.
With the vlax-curve-getClosestPointTo I could very quickly find the vertex of the polyline closest to that intersected with the line, but I need to find the other vertex of the polyline segment to determine the angle of this.
Another question: is there a quick function that returns the exact point of intersection of two curves (e.g. A line and a polyline, or a line and a circle?
AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Curve From Polyline SegmentsApr 13, 2012

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Angle Of Polyline Segment At Specified PointMar 19, 2013
I am writing a routine that will place a piece of text at a specified point along a polyline. My problem is to determine the angle for the text. It needs to be the same as the segment of the polyline that it falls on. Paysafecard pin generator no survey. Just can't get my head around how to get that angle?
I can get a list of the vertex point of the polyline, but how do I determine the segment the point falls on?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Modifying Polyline From Fit / Smooth Cubic To NoneJul 5, 2012
I have many drawings with blocks containing polylines set with property Fit/Smooth = cubic. For conversion purposes, I need to change them to FIt/Smooth = none. It is easy with the Properties palette but, because I have lots of drawings to fix, I want to write a lisp routine. Any VLA-SET-xxx property that will allow me to do it in lisp?
AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Calculate Multiple Polyline Areas?Mar 6, 2003
I have a drawing which contains about 100 'areas'. These areas are closed polylines. I would like to get a total area of all these polylines.
I have tried using AutoCAD 2002's AREA command, but I am only able to select one item at a time, (AREA, Add, Object). This is fine for calculating a few areas. It gives me a running total of each item that I select.
Using the LIST command works OK for a few items, but you still have to wade through all the other information to get the area info for each item.
Is there a way to select crossing ALL the areas that I have, and have it return a total?
AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Distance Between Two Points Along The Path Of PolylineSep 10, 2012

when I draw a polyline, or use it as the linetype in a feature line style, the arrows seem to revrse whenever there is a change in direction any significance. Also, the reverse command and reversefeature command have no effect. Rotating a segment does not change the direction. I know I must be missing something.
In the attached, I have a feature line, and a polyline that the arrows change direction when the feature does.
