AutoLISP

One of my personal interests is the development of Autolisp routines to solve representation problems. Here you can find and download my lisp routines. If you wish you can improve them. I'm sorry but the comments inside the code are in portuguese. I would appreciate your comments and suggestions to improve the routines as well as ideas for new ones! The latest routines will be placed on top. To make it easier I only put here one *.zip file with all routines that I will update.

To simulate a spherical photograph (It is an approximate perspective!) from a 3D line model (foto_esferica.LSP)

This is divided in 3 parts. First type cam_esf to define the camera. It asks you for the principal distance (in mm), and for a scale factor. If one drawing unit is 1m I suggest a scale factor of 0.1. Then type objecto to select the object to be imaged. Note that the routine only work with lines. After type foto_esf to get the picture. It asks you for the station point and for the target point. You can take as much pictures as you want. If you want to add an object to a taken photo you type objecto to select the object and snapshot to add it to the picture. It doesn’t crop the image outside the boundaries of the “sensor” nor does filter the elements behind the camera. That is a limitation. For successive pictures of the same object with the same camera definition only use foto_esf. Note that you have to create two layers: foto_e and foto_o. It returns two images, one spatialy oriented and another at the origin. Find an example image bellow comparing a standard perspective with the spherical perspective.


To draw an ellipse given to conjugate diameters (elipse_lista.LSP)

It works fine in WCS. Type eli and define the center and the endpoints of the conjugate diameters.

To define a projective transformation (rectificador.LSP)

This is a routine similar to homograf but it based on a different algorithm. It gives you the possibility to choose lines instead of points as control data. In fact, given the lines it calculates intersection points. So it requires that following lines intersect. To make it work you can type 4p4p1 or 4l4l1 (in these cases you are choosing points or lines, respectively, as control data; you are also picking the four control points or lines first in the distorted drawing), or you can type 1p1p4 or 1l1l4 (in these cases you pick one control point or line in the distorted drawing followed by its homologous control point and you repeat this 4 times). Once the projective transformation is defined you can type transf to transform additional data. Note that you can only apply this to lines. It works fine in WCS.

To determine the best fit point to converging lines (1_pt_fuga.LSP)

This routine was intended to be used when drawing over perspective images. If you type spf and then select a set of converging lines it returns the best fit point (I obviously call it the vanishing point). If you type spf_r it also redraws the lines converging to the determined point. After the point is determined type sp_lv to draw additional lines from the vanishing point. If you take a look to de code you find extra information that is not used. Use it if you need it!

To sum the lengths of a set of lines (ct_jts.LSP)

Type ctjts. It returns the number of lines, the total length, and the average length.

To sum the lengths of a set of lines, open polylines, arcs of circles, arcs of ellipses and splines (ct_jts_geral.LSP)

Type ctct. It returns a list with partial lengths (ignore the last value that is 0), the total length and the average length. It doesn’t work with regions, circles, ellipses and closed polylines. With regions it doesn’t work at all. With the others it returns 0 length. Sorry!!! Feel free to improve it!!!

To sum the areas of a set of polylines, arcs, circles, ellipses and splines (ct_areas.LSP)

Type ctar. It returns a list with partial areas (ignore the last value that is 0), the total area and the average area. It doesn’t work with regions.

To simulate a photograph (It is a perspective!) from a 3D line model (foto.LSP)

This is divided in 3 parts. First type camara to define the camera. It asks you for the principal distance (in mm), for the sensor width (in mm), for the sensor height (in mm), and for a scale factor. If one drawing unit is 1m I suggest a scale factor of 0.1. Then type objecto to select the object to be imaged. Note that the routine only work with lines. After type foto to get the picture. It asks you for the station point, for the target point, and for a rotation angle around camera axis. You can take as much pictures as you want. If you want to add an object to a taken photo you type objecto to select the object and snapshot to add it to the picture. It doesn’t crop the image outside the boundaries of the “sensor” nor does filter the elements behind the camera. That is a limitation but nevertheless it can be used to plan a photogrammetric survey. For successive pictures of the same object with the same camera definition only use foto.

To determine the angle between to vertical adjacent façade plans (planta.LSP)

It is supposed that you draw over a photo taken with a camera with horizontal position. It recommended that you correct the image for distortions. This can be usually done with the camera software. Then insert the image into AutoCAD and draw the intersecting line of the two façades (let us call it Li). Then draw a vertical line over the left façade (let us call it Le) and a vertical line over the right façade (let us call it Ld). These 3 lines should correspond to lines of equal length in the real object. Then you have to know the real length (on the real object) of line Li (let us call it LVi), the real distance between Le and Li (let us call it LEI), and the real distance between Li and Ld (let us call it LID). You can draw a vertical line and two horizontal lines corresponding to these lengths. Then type planta. Now you have to select Li, Le, Ld, LVI, LEI, LID, and pick a point to be the vertex of the angle. Hope you understood! Enjoy!

To develop a cylindrical surface (planif_cil.LSP)

Suppose you have a vertical cylinder corresponding to a circular wall. For example, you draw the bricks or the stones of the wall approximately on the cylinder (only lines). Now you want to develop the cylinder to a plan in order two make a drawing with the real dimensions of the circular wall. Draw a circle (let us call it CC) corresponding to the horizontal projection of the cylinder. It is also recommended that you draw two opposed vertical lines (let us call them V1 and V2) on the cylinder. Now type planif, then pick the circle CC, select the “bricks” or “stones” and the lines V1 and V2, and finally select the insertion point of the developed surface drawing.
