XY Coordinates from a Polyline

thread555-195727: XY coordinates from a polyline


I'm new to this forum, however I found this thread from 2007 to be very helpful for what I am trying to do.

I would like to extract the XY Coordinates from a 2D Polyline, but with more extracted data points along the curve.

The ptexport.lisp did exactly what I need it to do but does anyone know how to change the lisp code to have more (10x more) XY data extraction points?

It's been a while since this thread has been closed but I thought I'd give it a shot.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm fairly new to the lisp coding/command.

Thank you!


RE: XY Coordinates from a Polyline

I would set as many points as you want on the polyline with _divide and then put them into a *.csv file with _dataextraction.

Hello Occupant,

Thanks for the help!

After I posted this question I realized I could do exactly what you suggested and it worked perfectly.

Thanks for replying with the help.
