Programmatically Make RevCloud in .NET

Programmatically Make RevCloud in .NET

Programmatically Make RevCloud in .NET

Hello All,

I would like to be able to create a revision cloud through .NET but can not find any samples or help elsewhere.  Can someone point me in the right direction?

Hi illuniatisucks,

Have you looked at the revcloud.lsp program - it's not .NET but between that and the LISP documentation, it should get you going in the right direction.  One thing to note though, AutoLISP can do a few things VB/VBA/.NET can't do - and if I remember right one of those things was GRRDRAW (it's been too long since I've done AutoLISP - not sure that's correct), but this is where the user can sort of "virtually" draw on the screen before commiting to the actual placement of the object.

Not a show stopper, just something to be aware of...


RE: Programmatically Make RevCloud in .NET


I wasn't aware of such a lisp routine.  I did a search on my computer with no luck.  Is this something that should have been included with the program...?

As for the virtual draw, I believe you can accomplish the same thing with a jig routine in .Net.  I am not sure how GRRDRAW accomplished it and more than likely it was easier to use.  But we use jig routines for a handful of objects to preview the end object.

Hi illuminatisucks,

It's actually part of the Bonus Tools - I haven't checked in a while, but they may be part of the install, if not, I think you can still get them for free directly from Autodesk.  Failing that, seems to me I've seen a ton of those types of routines scattered amoung the various boards, but essentially, they're just creating a polyline arc if that helps.

Good info about the "jig" routine.  Haven't gotten very deep into .NET yet but I'll keep that one in mind...
