AutoCAD Programming =LINK=



AutoLISP is a dialect of the programming language Lisp built specifically for use with the full version of AutoCAD and its derivatives, which include AutoCAD Map 3D, AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD Mechanical.[1] Neither the application programming interface (API) nor the interpreter to execute AutoLISP code are included in the AutoCAD LT product line.[2] A subset of AutoLISP functions is included in the browser-based AutoCAD web app.

If there is a specific task that you wish to automate using custom programming, feel free to contact me to hire my services. Want to know what you're missing out on? Read the testimonials of those who have worked with me and my programs.


In addition to my custom programming services, I offer a plethora of free LISP programs available for you to download, covering a huge range of applications: from text manipulation to attribute extraction and everything inbetween.


AutoLISP is a dialect of the LISP programming language engineered to enable manipulation & customisation of AutoCAD and many of its derivative programs such as Civil 3D, MEP, Architecture, Electrical etc. AutoLISP is restricted to running on full versions of AutoCAD and cannot be run in any version of AutoCAD LT. Other applications such as Bricscad and IntelliCAD also offer the ability to run AutoLISP programs.


I have updated my Strikethrough Text application to Version 1.2. This new version incorporates compatibility for both single & multiline attributes (with a single line of text), and defines two supporting functions to facilitate the evaluation of the main function with a single object selection or selection of multiple objects, vastly simplifying the set of custom strikethrough commands and thereby making it easier for a non-technical user to define their own custom strikethrough commands by following the same format without requiring any prior programming knowledge.


As an academic diversion from my typical programming, I have explored the fascinating fractal nature of the Sierpinski Triangle, along with its 3D analog: the Sierpinski Tetrahedron. This brief study forms part of my selection of Mathematical Endeavours.


Added Custom Programming Services section to the Home page, for those companies looking to automate repetitive tasks in their procedures via the use of custom programming, potentially saving hours of valuable time.


AutoLISP is a programming language designed specifically for use with the full version of AutoCAD (i.e. it does not work with AutoCAD LT). AutoLISP is one of a number of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) built into AutoCAD but it is probably the easiest to use and therefore the most productive for the beginner. If you'd like to learn how to use AutoLISP to improve productivity, you're in the right place.


AfraLISP will help you get to grips with AutoLISP as quickly and easily as possible using some great tutorials for beginners. But the site also contains many intermediate and advanced AutoLISP tutorials to take you much further than the basics. In addition, AfraLISP provides DCL Tutorials (Dialog Control Language), Visual LISP tutorials, VBA Tutorials and AutoCAD customization tutorials in case you'd like to take your AutoLISP and AutoCAD programming to the next level.


There is no 'real' programming in LT, you should just see it as stringing a whole load of commands together. Diesel will allow some limited decision making. User input is limited to picking points if required.


Oh that was custom programming, and only really useful for the company involved. Besides the work was covered by an NDA. I just mentioned it as an example of what can be done even in LT. All the 'programming' was done in excel.


Buy Bricscad, Intellicad Drafsight etc you will not look back once you get into programming. It was mentioned elsewhere Bricscad $595 US ? Just work out twenty minutes times your pay rate v's say1minute with lisp. Still charge the same but get more time off.


ActiveX is a framework developed by Microsoft in 1996 which adapts earlier concepts of COM (Component Object Model) and OLE (Object Linking and Embedding). Most people may think of this as Visual Basic (pre .Net era) programming.


Kean and I were recently interviewed by Andrew Roe for his Cadalyst series on programming AutoCAD. As part of the discussion (not all of which appeared in his article), he asked us our opinions on which programming language was best for beginner programmers new to AutoCAD .NET development.


If you want to start an exciting new career this year, consider AutoCAD programming. The coding behind the popular design software used by architects and engineers is essential to these industries, as well as many others the world over - and that means that the programming behind to build on and improve its plugins and applications is just as in-demand. In fact, CAD Programmers in the US can make a healthy $80k a year from the skill set.


AutoLISP is a popular high-level language used for programming in CAD Packages such as AutoCAD, BricsCAD or ZWCAD. Using AutoLISP, you can create customised CAD commands to perform actions in order to generate the desired output.


LSP files or files with .LSP extension are the files written in LISP programming language. The LSP files contain source code for AutoLISP in the form of plain text program code which is executed with the help of an LSP interpreter. These files can be opened using any text editor. LSP files are used with Popular CAD programs such as AutoCAD, BricsCAD and ZWCAD.


LISP, one of the best high-level languages, is the best-suited programming language for AUTOCAD due to the unstructured nature of AutoCAD drawings.The lisp functions are suitable for geometry, accessing AutoCAD's internal DWG database, or manipulation of graphical entities in AutoCAD. The properties of these graphical entities are revealed to AutoLISP as association lists in which values are paired with AutoCAD group codes that indicate properties such as definitional points, radii, colours, layers, linetypes, etc. AutoCAD loads AutoLISP code from .LSP files.


AutoCAD introduced AutoLISP as an application programming interface (API) in Release 2.1, in the mid-1980s. LISP was chosen as the initial AutoCAD API because it was uniquely suited for the unstructured design process of AutoCAD projects, which involved repeatedly trying different solutions to design problems.


Finding the right form and scope for the on-drawing bill of material is probably something that most firms struggle with. Is the bill instruction for fabrication, for ordering, for the customer, for the shipping department, or to show design intent? Autocad tables are not where most designers want to bury crucial information, but most drawings need a bill to summarize what is being shown and direct the output of fabrication, a list of parts or material used, a list of items produced to know when the drawing is fabricated completely. Autocad tables have a huge number of features, both user interface and vba interface. They can mirror information in excel which in turn can translate back and forth to the system database, but they are not restricted to being bills of material. They are in the fine autocad tradition of a basic tool.


N2 - Typological design implies extensive knowledge of building types in order to design a building belonging to a building type. It facilitates the design process, which can be considered as a sequence of decisions.The paper gives an outline of a new approach in a course teaching typological knowledge through the medium of Knowledge-Based Systems programming. It demonstrates how Knowledge-Based Systems offer an appropriate structure for analysing the knowledge required to implement typological design. The class consists of third-year undergraduate students with no extensive previous programming experience. The implementation language is AutoLISP which operates in the AutoCAD environment. The building type used in the course is the office building. In order to become acquainted with both building type andprogramming in AutoLISP, information and instructions have been gathered and prestructured, including a worked out analysis andAutoLlSP code.Office plans are generated through use of the Knowledge-Based System. They are encoded in the form offrames. At the end of the course the students will have learned the basics of Knowledge-Based Systems, have been introduced to programming these systems, have analysed and reflected upon the design process, and gained insight into a specific building type.
