Metric Fillet/Chamfer Commands

Metric Fillet/Chamfer Commands

(OP)
I am trying to make a custom command so that when i start the fillet/chamfer command it invokes the calculator inside of the radius/distance part of the command so that i can type in a value to get a metric result (3/25.4)....I have made custom value fillet/chamfer commands, but i cannot seem to get the macro right for this one....thank you!

RE: Metric Fillet/Chamfer Commands

Are you wanting to just type in the metric number only, or have the calc pop up so you can manually enter "3 [divide] 25.4" ? If the latter... just type 30/254 at the command line in the default chamfer command.

If the former, you'll be changing the chamfer command such that you'll never be able to enter an inch measurement unless you manually multiple it by 25.4. If that's acceptable, change the command to map to a .lsp routine that initiates the chamfer command but automatically divides the user input by 25.4.

If you clarify your requirement/desire, I may be able to write a short LISP routine that satisfies.

Are you missing the "pause" command?
