AutoCAD Inventor :: Specifying Insertion Point For Ifeature?

Aug 17, 2012

I have created a set of standard panel cutouts for connectors as ifeatures.

they work good however i created them all from one file and they were in various locations in the original file.

when i insert the objects i am unable to place them by their centers and have to re-position afterward.

Is there a way to edit the ifeature and modify the location of the insertion point?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Frame Generator - Inaccurate Insertion Point Error?

Aug 8, 2013

I've been using Frame Generator for at least 4 years and have not seen this issue before. Maybe I "bumped" a setting somewhere or a number changed in a default setting somehow, but lately when I insert a square tube frame piece into an assembly, it seems to be not accurate in it's placement.

Example: If I make a simple cube part that measures 28.0" wide and

Insert some frame generated square tubing on the edges of the cube, the frame measures 27.999999992 in - slightly off from where I inserted it. This seems to repeat without fail in every new assembly.

AutoCAD .NET :: Create Polyline With Insertion Point Prompt

Mar 13, 2012

I've been going through some examples on [URL] to create polylines and i've managed to make some code run. One thing that I can't seem to find information on though, is how to use the default AutoCAD command line options in my code. For instance, I would like to be able to prompt the user whether they would like to snap the polyline to an insertion point, everytime they create a new verticie.

Below is some example code from the site that i'm working from:

namespace MyPlineApp
public class MyPlineCmds

AutoCAD 2010 :: Block Insertion Point Moving

Feb 20, 2012

I create a block where coordinate 0,0 is my base/insertion point (which is established in an orientation that is to the lower-left of my blocks line work). In a new drawing I insert that block and specify coordinate 0,0 as my insert point. Instead of my insertion point being in the lower left it is in the upper right. I run into this in new version and old version drawings.

Jan 27, 2012

How can I find a block with a specific name and get what the coordinates are? What we have is our Bill of Material is attributed blocks. I am attempting to change the first one.

AutoCAD 2010 :: MLeader Text Moves Insertion Point After Editing?

Nov 28, 2011

AutoCad 2012 SP1 / Windows 7 64 bit

Sometimes I have MLeader text without Mleaders (ie, I remove the leader arm using MLEADEREDIT). Then when I go to edit this 'floating note', the base point moves:

In this screenshot, I've just finished editing the text. Note that I added in the diagonal line at the current insertion point of the Mleader text (top right): 

Then, after I click outside the Mleader box, the text moves:

THis happens only with right-aligned MLeaders, and keeps happening, ie if I edit this text again and close it again, it will move again.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Rounding Up Block Coordinates (insertion Point)

Sep 2, 2013

We have several AutoCAD drawings with hundreds of block references inserted with imprecise coordinates. Now we need to dimension all elements and need to correct these positions.

I am searching for a routine to round these positions up or down towards a 5mm precision so I don't have to manually move every single block element.

Is there any way to automate the task or do you know any workaround (like inserting the elements into a drawing with poorer unit precision settings)?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Block Insertion Point Is Within A Closed Polyline

Oct 11, 2011

I've have code to test if the insertion point is within a closed polygon. But prior to testing the insertion point I use ssget to trim the selection set initially..

(ssget "CW" Pnt_List (list (cons 0 "INSERT")(cons 2 BlockName)))

this requires that the whole Crossing Polygon is visible, so I do a zoom first. This requires time. Is there a way I can do this that does not require the zoom?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Using Insertion Point To Select Line Rather Than Using Entsel

Aug 12, 2013

We have been modifying a trim-around-block routine to have as few clicks as possible and though it feels like we'd be able to have the line to be broken auto-selected based off of the insertionpoint that was set as a variable.

;(setq pnt1 (getvar "lastpoint")
;      sst1 (osnap pnt1 "nea")
;end setq

;(setq ss (ssget '((0 . "LWPOLYLINE")))) ; limited to Polylines
; (while (> (sslength ss) 0) ; as long as there's anything in [or remaining in] the selection set))
; (setq ent (ssname ss 0)
; paramcount 1
; ) ; first entity in [or remaining in] the selection set paramcount 1); end setq
are about the closest snippets of code that we've managed to find but neither of these are working.

How we can force the program to break the line without the user having to select the line (because they will have already selected the insertpoint, and using osnap nearest would find the line that requires breaking)

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Zoom Layout (Entities Or Insertion Point Extents)

Oct 12, 2012

I have a drawing with various layouts that when I do a Zoom Extents the drawings is reduced to the size of a point.

I have done all the usual, ie: look for extra entities that are "out in space" so to speak and there are none.

I wonder if I have a block or image which may have an insertion point "out in space" and if this may be the issue.

Is there some way to Select all entities or Blocks (insertion point) that may exist outside a particular area ie: drawing limits.
