Enter a series of distances to offset your desired object.

Previous tipster Raymond Rizkallah is back this month with a new routine to perform multiple offsets with one AutoCAD command. Load this LISP file and run the command DCO. You will be prompted to enter a series of offset distances separated by spaces — for example, [10 25 33.5 50] — and then to select the object to offset. The distances you enter are retained for future use, saving you from entering them over and over. Raymond's code includes a nice function to convert the user-entered string into a list, which is then applied to the offset command.
