Rantin & how to's from the Med

Spline to Polyline Lisp (Autodesk Map)

Mar 07, 2011 by Conan Parsons

Greating fellow traveller(s) (not sure who reads this).


There is a "lisp" file (autodesk add on) for trasforming splines to polylines (e.g. if you have received a dwg exported from illustrator)

It's located on CAD on server 1, or samba-1 or whaterver it is this month, and also in the geomatics utilities folder at OA Med.  I know I know Anna knows how to do this and could have told me, but she was incommunicado, there's not may people in at oxford to today who know, so I had to figure it out myself by serious internet research (which took 10 minutes).


- Put the .lsp in to the support folder in the directory of your cad program.
- Open CAD

- Tools, AutoLisp, Load

- Navigate to your lsp and click "Load"

- VoilĂ , follow the instructions.


I hope you were sitting UNcomfortably :p


Sorry for not looking at my phone :p

Here's the link where anyone from outside OA can download the lisp file:

And I think I did post this on the OA forum a while ago.

Last, but not least, real thanks go to Anne Kilgour, who told me about it in the first place :)
