Use Visual LISP to input the size parameters from the keyboard, a center point plus an angle, which then generates a polyline slot

Another tip from Thomas is Slot Drawing Utility (Tip #2036). A slot is a cut into the material normally made by a milling tool or the combination of a drill and a mill/router type tool. These types of shapes are rectangles with rounded ends, but they are defined by size and center location, not the corner points. Thomas uses Visual LISP to input the size parameters from the keyboard, a center point plus an angle, which then generates a polyline slot. This tip improves communication between the CAD operator and the computer for these types of drawings. Thanks for both tips, Thomas!
