Default Thank you!

A hearty thanks to everyone who offered to help me with this problem, and especially to Bernhard and Claus for actually providing solutions. The drawings are being printed now, and will be off to the woodturner's later this morning.

make a text file with something like this:


save it with *.scr extension.

load it in autocad with osnap off with the command "script", and there you go!

please feel free to ask anything from autocad, because I master the beast.

Save the spreadsheet as a *.csv (comma separated variable) file. Then do what Pedro shows. above: add the word pline at the top and add a blank line at the bottom. Then save the csv file as a *.scr file. Then at the autocad command line type scr<enter> and use the dialog box to navigate to your just created scr file. Voila, you have a polyline which connects all of the points.

You can make the curve smooth by using more points or by using the pedit command and turning it into a spline - you may want to turn a copy of the line into a spline and compare it to the original, because depending on spacing, the spline can sometimes be a bit off
