  • 1. Video card for Dell Dimen. 2400?
    Dear Group, I am building a system I plan to use for ADT 2004, and probably Photoshop at the same time. I have a new Dell Dimension 2400 with this configuration: - Pentium 4 Processor at 2.20GHz with 400MHz front side bus - Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition - Memory 256MB Shared DDR SDRAM at 333MHz (Performs at 266MHz for 400FSB systems) - 40GB ATA/100 Value Hard Drive - Video Card Integrated Intel 3D Extreme Graphics - Network Interface Integrated 10/100 Ethernet - 17 in E171FP Flat Panel Display - Note: I will be upgrading the memory to 768mb - The card slots are PCI. I've been told that such a configuration won't do 3d very well with the "Video card" integrated circuitry it has, and that I will need to add a card. While it is possible that I will not need massive 3d capablities, I will certainly need some. In addition, I am not sure yet how much 3d is too much for the current circuitry, without an added card. In other words, perhaps it will work as is. So, 1) Can someone advise me about what PCI based card to choose, how powerful it has to be and how much memory I should get on the card? How to know it when I see it? 2) Can someone give a brief explanation of what functions depend on the card and which don't? For example, I read that in the program Viz, rendering is totally processor dependent and not at all dependent on the card, etc. Thanks much, Michael
  • 2. How to join into polyline and sweep out unwanted entities?
    Please help me acheive the following two tasks with lisp rountines: Task-1) I have a drawing containning lines and arcs. The adjacent lines or arcs seem to be connected to each other.But when I zoom in the intersection portion,there is always a very small gap (0.0001mm ~ 0.5mm) between the two entities.Therefore,I can't join the adjacent lines and arcs into polyline objects. Is there a lisp routine to do the job quickly instead of fillet each two entities with 0 radius step by step? Task-2) Suppose that there are many open polylines in the drawing. And there are several entities (plines,lines,points,circles,arcs) within a user-defined polyline width.Those entities may be parallel,intersecting or laying under/on top of the polylines. I need a lisp routine to define a width value (for example 0.5 mm) by the user,then the lisp is able to sweep all the unwanted entities along each polyline paths.Entities, which are not totally located within the pline width area,are required to remain unchanged or untrimmed. Any solutions? Wish you all have a Merry Christmas! Rosa Hisao
  • 3. help creating layers
    i'm curretly creating a template. the company standards goes as follows: x- for existing works c- civil proposed works s- structural proposed works e- electrical proposed works i have alrready creted about 50 layers with the x prefix (existing works), i have now to create the layers for the rest of the other disciplines wich mostly of them contain the same sufix i.e. x-pav (existing pavement) c-pav (proposed pavement) now, since i already created mostly of this layers is there a way that i can copy and paste all this and just change my discipline letter? do i have to type all of this layers againg just to change on letter? :( any help would be appreciated, thanks in advanced guillermo
  • 4. Extruding along a path AND tapering/changing X-sectional shape ?
    Hi ! I'm using ACAD 2002, and would like to extrude some polygons and circles along a path, and get them to taper along the path. I can create tapered extrusions from 2D objects in the z-plane, but there doesn't seem to be the option to taper extruded 2D objects along a path. Is there any way to do this? Also (getting more creative !) I'd like to extrude along a path between two different 2D objects - e.g a circle and an elipse - so that I get a curved pipe which is initially circular in cross section, morphing into an eliptical cross section at the other end. Maybe there's a LISP routine out there that can do this ? Finally, I know that loads of people have written interesting LISP routines to create new and useful AutoCAD tools. Is there a good web archive where I can look for downloadable LISP routines with descriptions and instructions ? Many thanks in anticipation Dave

Can somebody give me an example of a fire alarm riser
diagram, for a multi story building? Is there a standard
accepted configuration/format?

2.Anybody using AutoCAD to draw UML 2.0 diagrams?

I was wondering if there is a parts library to support drawing UML 2.0
diagrams for use in Software Design?

3.Question about Analog Environment: eye diagrams

You can convert psf to ascii with:
psf -i tran.tran -o tran.txt

Cadence has an eye diagram function:
eyeDiagram ( o_waveform n_start n_stop n_period ) => o_waveform/nil

This function gives an eye-diagram plot of the input waveform signal.
It returns the waveform object of the eye-diagram plot.

See the Affirma RF Simulator (SpectreRF) User Guide, Chapter 13
Behavioral Models and Methods for Top Down Design for some examples.

Check out awvSimplePlotExpression and awvPlotExpression.

5.Polar Diagram in Cadence ?

If I have an amplifier with an AC Response,

is it possible to display this as a polar diagram in Analog Artist ?
(instaead of displaying magnification and phase separately )

I could not see such a function in the calculator
