  • 1. Toolbar menu's troubles
    I'm trying to help a friend who's at a different company. The guy who use to maintain their CAD (electrical) Package is gone and no one knows anything about adding/changing symbols, etc. in their menu. They are using a Toolbar kind of menu on the left side with icons that expand out when mouse is over. When I add or modify a line and recompile the menu.mnu file, the menus don't work and the Icons are all screwed up (sigh). They have all their source BMP icon files in a separate folder and that is in their search path. An example of the menu info is as follows (whatch for word wrap): **TB_G-MENU_-_MC-SWITCHES ID_G_Menu___MC_Switches_0 [_Toolbar("G-Menu - MC-Switches", _Floating, _Hide, 465, 161, 6)] ID__0 [_Button("Switch", "switch-line_voltage.bmp", "ICON_24_BLANK")]^C^C(hidetoolbar);(gmf-insert "switch-line_voltage" 0 "d16-lights_switch" 0 0 0 "") Anyone know where I can get some info on the line command structure (ie: what is the logic behind the ID_# part? Seems random to me). Any help/info is appreciated. BruceF
  • 2. Make centered line from two parallel lines w/o deleting lines
    This works: (defun c:singln ( / ss e1 e2 ei ei2 p1 p2 p3 p4) (and (princ "\nSelect 2 parallel lines: ") (setq ss (ssget (list (cons 0 "line")))) (setq e1 (ssname ss 0)) (setq e2 (ssname ss 1)) (setq ei (entget e1)) (setq ei2 (entget e2)) (setq p1 (cdr(assoc 10 ei))) (setq p2 (cdr(assoc 11 ei))) (setq p3 (cdr(assoc 10 ei2))) (setq p4 (cdr(assoc 11 ei2))) (or (< (distance p1 p3)(distance p1 p4)) (setq pt p3 p3 p4 p4 pt) ) (entmake (list (cons 0 "LINE") ; (cons -1 e1) (cons 10 (mapcar 'avg2 p1 p3)) (cons 11 (mapcar 'avg2 p2 p4)))) ;(entdel e2) ) (princ) ) (defun avg2 (a b) (/ (+ a b) 2.0))
  • 3. Command Line Plot/Print
    I'd like to print out a list of printers to the screen. But I can't end this command without asking the user to press the escape key. Is there a way to do it. I'd like call the command with a DCL button. (command "plot" "Y" "" "?") Thanks Steve

Fire Alarm Riser Diagrams

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

It is more than possible I f**ed comething up.

I still need to root through old models, but this mornings simple tests

But, boy will this will be an interesting topic in new orleans.

It has to do with UV lines and what happens when you model one face at
a time vs what happens when you try to get a few faces out of the same
loft (be it surface or solid).

At this point it looks like I was completly blind to how much I rely on
modeling one face at a time. Just flat-out blind to it, and blinded by

Too much to go into with words in a post - it will be worked out

into a few clear samples in my presentation (and of course posted on

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.

4.SRAM: SKILL code and butterfly diagram


Does anyone know an easy way to layout/schematic a large sram array.
Let's say with a size of at maybe 256*512. Can anyone please give me
some suggestion like where to find a code example for this or a

Moreover, when trying to generate the "butterfly diagram" for sram
read/write stability, anyone knows how do you put both curve on the
same graph, and where to break the circuit in order to make the graph?

Thank you for the help.

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
