Coordinate Dimensions in CAD?

Help! I need to know if it's possible to pick a point in ACAD Mechanical
and it list the coordinate points out to the side in like a table format. I
know ordinate dimensioning, but that isn't what I need.

I'll bet there's a .lsp somewhere to do that. I'd post this in
customization and see what you get

In AutoCAD you can rest the crosshairs on a grip and the coordinates will be
retuned in the bottom left corner. Course you'd have to write down the
information manually. Or use LIST to get your point information

From what I remember about Mechanical, there is a built in tool for creating
hole charts. Instead of creating points, create tiny circles. Check out
the help file.

Here is a small lisp routine I use. Copy and paste it in a LISP folder. Load it and type and it will place the coordinates where you pick.

(defun c:anotptne (/ pt1 a d tx)
(setvar "AUNITS" 0)
(while
(setq pt1 (getpoint "\nPick point "))
(setq PT1X (car PT1))
(setq PT1Y (cadr PT1))
(setq txn (strcat "N=" (rtos PT1Y)))
(setq pt3 (getpoint "Pick Point for N..."))
(command "text" "c" pt3 "" txn)
(setq txe (strcat "E=" (rtos PT1X)))
(setq pt2 (getpoint "Pick Point for E.."))
(command "text" "c" pt2 "" txe)

)
)

Hi Jason,

Yes there is. On the tool bar use Annotate-Hole Charts.
This will list hole size and/or hole location from a base point that you choose.
