Chainage Lisp

Chainage Lisp

Chainage Lisp


I need a lisp routine to create chainage marks along a polyline - does anyone have one or know where a can get one from?
I need to be able to specify the Start chainage (text), interval, prefix, scale and precision - I think that’s it.



RE: Chainage Lisp

Email me a sample drawing and a more detailed
 graphical representation of what you want
 and I'll take a look at your problem. Are the
 info placed at the polyline vertices or do
 you need to place them at regular intervals.
 How do you intend to place the info.. via a
 text file or manually. (grevark@aol.com)

RE: Chainage Lisp

Could a custome linetype do the job?

RE: Chainage Lisp

Thanks guys,

Estassoc - thanks I sent you what a need, hope thats ok.

IFRs - A Custom line type is no good as I need text by the chainage mark saying what the distance is (ie. 100m, 200m etc) so it needs to be intelligent - thanks anyway.

If you sent me anything, have not received it.
