Solution for Level, Elevation, R.L., E.L., spot dimension

Hi,

 

Since AutoCAD release version 12 I have been waiting for command writing the level values on  2D section.

It has many names such as Level, Elevation, R.L., E.L., spot dimension , it depends on region standard or  industry.

AutoCAD users tried to achieve this feature by using ordinate dimensions, writing lisp routines, creating dynamic blocks or combining both, but none of them worked perfectly.

 

I decided to create plug-in for this feature ( I was inspired by AllPlan from Nemetschek) and after certain testing time in our organization I decided to share it with others.

Attached is LevelSet.dll (main plug-in file), dwg drawing with examples of different settings, and text file with short description of the plug-in.

This is very first public version ,it was tested on ACAD2010 and ACAD2012 and there is still room for improvement in future, but core of main commands works.

 

U.S. colleagues: Sorry this version did not support imperial units.

Please feel free to send me suggestion or bug report.

Thank you, colleagues.

Richard

Hi,

 

Attached is a new version LevelSet v1.5.

I added ‘Decimal Separator’ field in Properties window. I was asked to give option either (.) dot or  (,) comma, but user can use any characters in separator field.

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hi,

 

Attached is version 1.6.

What is a  new:

 

-Width Factor and Oblique Angle set in Text Style are now used for Text. For already created LevelSet run RLP (properties window) and just click OK to update Text style.

-Change horizontal direction of Symbol option has been added (command RLSH or context menu). I was asked to add this option but I think that better method is to create more LevelSet with different Symbol blocks (left and right).

 

Have a great Xmas.

 

Richard.

Hi,

 

I attached new version 1.7

What is a new:

 

-New command ‘RLMATCHPROP’ or ‘RLMA’. Command applies the selected LevelSet properties to other LevelSet(s)

-Each LevelSet  can hold the name now. Name is stored as block attribute.

 

Thanks,

 

Richard

Hi,

 

I posted a new LevelSet version 2.0 on ACAD2013 forum here. One of a new feature is imperial unit support and compatibility with 2013.

Thanks,

Richard
