How to Make Grid Lines With Text in AutoCAD
Showing Grid Lines in AutoCAD for printing the real-world coordinates drawings is one of the practices that require special techniques and procedures. Gridlines in a drawing show the location of parts in the drawing by its Easting and Northing. Gridlines help to read the drawing correctly.
This post is about creating Grid Lines in AutoCAD for real-world coordinates on a specific offset. This technique will teach you how you can mark lines at different intervals and write Coordinates text will each line border.
Normally there are a lot of methods used for creating Grid Lines in your AutoCAD drawings. Using auto lisp of visual lisp files to accomplish this task is also a well-known procedure. In this post, I will tell you how to use auto lisp file to draw the grid line in a drawing and write coordinates i.e. easting and nothing on the boundary of grid lines. This video tutorial shows the simplest and easy method for creating and drawing coordinates grid lines in AutoCAD. this routine uses a lisp program for Drawing grid lines on specified offsets and specified text height.
This is very useful for Creating Easting and Northing Coordinates Grid in model space which can later be used for plotting, this is same as the preparation of graph paper grid lines.
This is a video demonstration for showing you how to use ZGRID.lsp for drawing gridlines in AutoCAD.
