Tip 2242: Connect the Blocks
This month's top tip is Connect the Blocks by Paul Martinez. Connect the Blocks automates the drawing process for irrigation plans by drawing lines between the insert points of selected blocks. After loading the LISP code, type ConnectBlocks to operate this power tool. You first must draw blocks that you want connected, because the first prompt in ConnectBlocks will be to select the blocks you want connected. The LISP subr SSGET is used in this function with a filter to make sure you can select only block inserts. After you have selected the blocks, the insertion points are gathered into a list and sorted in ascending order. This list provides the points that will be connected by lines automatically. This function is useful in a variety of disciplines, and it can save a lot of time for those who are currently generating this type of drawing manually. Great work, Paul; this is well deserving of this month's top tip award and the $100 prize.
