We've updated our BricsCAD sample CAD Library for BricsCAD V16.
Ever just wanted a drawing using your last print settings without having to go through the setup process? PrintPrevious was created just for this. It will automatically print your current layout with your previous print settings. If no previous settings exist, then the command will cancel and display an error message to this effect.
When working in 3D it can often be easier to create new objects on the WCS, then manipulate them into position afterwards. Of course this still requires a bit of work to position and align your new object to existing ones in your model. However by using some LISP and levering of the properties of the INSERT command you can make this rather effortless.
ScaleText will allow you to quickly re-size selected TEXT and MTEXT about is insertion point by applying a scale factor.
Changing sheet sizes, title blocks and notes on a drawing can be a real pain. However if you make use of templates and layouts you can greatly reduce the effort that is involved.
Toggle Background Colour. Toggles the background colour between black and white. Note this routine will only work in Bricscad. Updated to work with AutoCAD and Bricscad. The original version is still included, as the newer version may not work for Linux Bricscad users.
The release of Bricscad V12.2 has brought with it a raft of new VLE lisp functions, and the promise of much more to come. Info on these new functions, and their use is a little thin on the ground at the moment, so I have prepared a summary based on information kindly provided by the developer.
Sometimes you may need to know what folder AutoCAD/Bricscad is running out of. This may not necessarily be the same folder as any drawings you have currently open. It is dependant on the "start-in" folder specified in the shortcut that you have used to launch the application.
Query Object. Returns details on the selected objects in DXF code format. Useful in the development of lisp routines.
