AutoCAD VB :: Determining Amount Of Zoom?

Jul 2, 2011

I have written some code that draws a graph.  The graph starts at the 0,0  default of AutoCad Model Space and goes +X and +/-Y.  I want to redraw the labels along the X axis every time the Zoom is changed by the user, to change the text height and density of the labels.  I need to know the the current Zoom in relation to the actual extents of the graph. Ideally I would like to redraw the text as a result of the "zoom event"  I don't know if there is such a thing or not.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Determining Whether Install Is X32 Or X64

Jul 30, 2012

How does one determine if the version of AutoCAD that is installed ( 2012 mechanical in this case ) is an x32 or x64 bit installation.  Normally I would just look to see if it was installed under Program Files or Program Files ( x86 ) but it is located on D: drive under another folder so I don't have that option.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Determining A Counterweight?

Jul 16, 2013

Not sure if this is something I'm able to do in Inventor...

I have a "damper", it's more or less a diesel exhaust flapper type vent, that hangs upside down and is held in the horizontal/closed position by a counterweight.

Typically we would experiment in the shop with the counterweight quantity and the length of the arm required to get the proper operation of the damper/flapper in respect to the air/exhaust flow.

Since we know the axis along the shaft for the flapper and the weight of the flapper and it's bracket on the there a way to figure this out in Inventor? Obviously it still may need to be dialed in/tweaked...but I'm not sure if it's even possible.

AutoCad 2D :: Determining The Area Of A Hatch

Apr 19, 2011

Essentially, I have an odd shape that I fill in with a hatching. SOMETIMES, it will give me the area in the properties window (or when I use the list command). but other times, it will not give me the area.

I just hatched 4 different (but same general shape) areas, and on 3 of them CAD was able to compute the area, but not the 4th hatched area.

I created all 4 hatches using the exact same steps, so I'm not sure what I could be doing wrong. The CAD Tech at the office cant seem to figure it out either .

AutoCad :: Determining Scale Of Drawing

Feb 17, 2013

I need determining the scale of a drawing I got from the internet in ratio form. the drawing itself has a little scale bar in the corner, however, since i do not know the measurements of the actual structure i have no reference point and therefore cannot figure out the scale in ratios.

I read on here that you can use general reference point such as the average dimensions of a door/window ceiling etc. but the drawing is a longitudinal section of a church, namely, Temppeliaukio kirkko, which has no 'standard' dimensions.

I need this drawing in 1:100

AutoCAD 2010 :: Intersection Osnap Appears On Zoom Out But Disappears When Zoom In

Feb 22, 2012

The AutoCAD doesn’t show the “intersect osnap” at certain zoom!

The “intersection osnap” between a “hatched rectangle” and a “DASHDOT2” line appears and disappears depending on the amount of zoom!

As I zoom out the “intersection osnap” appears but when I zoom in, it disappears

Why the "intersection Osnap" should disappear as I zoom in?

AutoCAD 2013 :: How To Assign Keyboard Zoom + / - Key To Zoom A Drawing In / Out

Jan 8, 2013

My keyboard has a zoom key with + and - selections.  I use to use this key in drawings to zoom in and out when in the AutoCAD application when we had Windows XP.  Now that I have Windows 7 I can't do this.  I can't find out how to assign this key on the Microsoft Keyboard interactive software either.  I have the other keys assigned as desired.

Can I still use my keyboard zoom key to zoom in and out in drawings?  If so, how do I set this up in AutoCAD, or do I need to do this through a Microsoft keyboard application?

AutoCad :: Publishing Drawings And Determining Which Space The Drawing Is In

I've got a persisitant problem with the publishing feature in autocad. I know how to set up bulk print of drawings using publish.

However the drawings are a mixed lot (some in paper some in layout). Is there a way to determine the state of the drawing without opening each one. In my case there is thousands of drawings and of course i do not have the manpower to inspect each one.

AutoCad :: Determining Polar Coordinates On Hard Copy Drawing

Aug 19, 2012

I just started my CAD classes. I have been doing basic 2d drawing and just learning the commands etc.

My question concerns polar coordinates. I know how they work, but are you expected to be able to get polar coordinates off lets say a hard copy drawing with no annotations.

My homework so far has always had the length of the lines depicted on the drawing but not the angles. So if I was required to replicate a drawing that had no annotation is there any way other than guessing or whipping out my protractor.

This is just a nagging thought as I strive to understand CAD.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Determining Base View Type In IDW File Using VBA Macro

Jun 29, 2013

If I have a "idw" file open containing an assembly (asm), and another "idw" file containing a part (ipt), how can I determine, using a VBA macro the type of file that I have used (either "assembly" or "Part")

If the "Idw" file contains an assembly, running the maco should say "assembly". If it contains only a part (ipt) then it should say "part"..Is this possible using a vba macro?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Determining Number Of Lines In Multiline Attribute

Sep 26, 2013

I am basically trying to determine how many lines are in the mutliline attribute. I have abandoned the idea of directly trying to find the the number of lines and have moved on to trying to fine the height of the multiline attribute. I have included the lisp and sample drawing that will draw a box of the boundingbox around the mutiline attribute. 

This block as originally a dynamic block that different visual states. I have tried using the bounding box option on the block itself, however, if there are blocks hidden with the visual state, it will draw the bounding box according to the largest element in dynamic block every time. So I need to determine the height of the multiline attributes instead and adjust the dynamic block accordingly.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Undersize All Holes By Specified Amount?

Apr 3, 2013

I am running AutoCAD Mechanical 2010, and am curious if there is a way to decrease all the hole sizes on a given part by a set number, say .015.

I work for a sheet metal fab shop, we cut our parts with a waterjet and this requires us to undersize all the holes on the flat patterns by about .015 so they can be drilled out afterwards leaving a nicer edge finish in the holes. Some parts have hundreds of holes with multiple sizes and it can be very time consuming to undersize all the holes. My current method is to undersize one hole  and then use the equal constraint to set the rest of the holes of that size to that same size.
