Hi there. I'm looking for a link or training vid on the "wall command" it's the command that actually creates walls without having to do it line by line. Has anybody heard of this command?

 

Thanx

not a part of vanilla acad.  there are a lot of wall routines, from LISP to dotNet, and of couse, the AutoCAD Architecture vertical.  so if you are running ACA, there's a forum group.  if it's a lisp routine, there may not be anything available.

If you want to draw walls instead of lines in AutoCAD, I'd suggest that you check out AutoCAD Architecture:

 

http://www.autodesk.com/products/autodesk-autocad-architecture/overview

 

This software allows you to draw and model walls, doors, stairs, roofs, sections, etc using objects instead of lines, arc, etc.

Aha, I didnt realize AutoCAD Architecture was the only version that provides the wall command. I was'nt trained on the LISP command. What would it's function be?

LISP is a programming language baked into AutoCAD, not a command per se.  One can use LISP to expand AutoCAD's capabilities to just about any extent, but it takes some time to work you way into understanding and using LISP. 

 

Fortunately, there are a huge number of LISP programs already written, from walls, to staris, to golf games, and many are freely available.  Check out the cutomization forum on this board, and you'll get a taste of what people use LISP for.
