Join Scott Onstott for an in-depth discussion in this video Drawing spirals, part of AutoCAD 2013: 3D.
In this video you will use a lisp program, to draw an archimedian spiral, …that mimics the shape of the scrolls at the top of an ionic column capital. …You will learn how to convert the spiral from a complex polyline into a spline, …and then rebuild the spline to greatly simplify the object. …Open the Column 1 Project file, and type OP for Options then press Enter. …Go to the Files tab, and expand the support file search path.…
Click Add, and then Browse. Navigate through your file system to …locate the project files. Inside the chapter folder, there's a sub …folder called Geom Curves. Which contains the lisp program. …Click OK. We need to let AutoCAD know where this …information is through the options. Click OK again and now let's go ahead and …look at that file in the Visual LISP Integrated Development Environment.…
Type VLIDE and press Enter. This launches a seperate program within AutoCAD. …Click the Open icon and navigate to the Geom Curves sub-folder. …Then change the files of type drop-down to LISP source files. …
