Create six named user coordinate systems (UCSs) with keyboard shortcuts.

Ron Adams has submitted a routine that helps you work in 3D, especially if you like AutoCAD keyboard shortcuts. Load the LISP routine and type in the command UCS-CHG to get started. This will create six named user coordinate systems (UCSs), one each corresponding to Top, Bottom, Left, Right, Front, and Rear. The shortcuts for each of these are TP, BM, LF, RT, FR, and RR, respectively. Now you can use these two-letter keyboard shortcuts to change the UCS quickly. Ron's code can be adapted easily for your own custom UCS. A nice time-saver for those tapping the 3D power of AutoCAD.

For each of your saved UCS names please consider adding a tblsearch to prevent an error when it already exists. Exaample that works: (if (tblsearch "ucs" "BOTTOM") (COMMAND "UCS" "SAVE" "BOTTOM" "Y") ;save UCS (COMMAND "UCS" "SAVE" "BOTTOM") ;save UCS ) ;end if v/r TommyBluegrass
