HOWTO create pattern with coordinates
skapa bladindelning/rutnät + koordinatkryss

Our problem

In one of our projects the pattern moved around all the time, we needed a way to automate pattern creation with a script.
Couldn't find such on the net, so here is one autocad-script-creation-tool.
Ett verkytg för att skapa bladindelning/rutnät samt koordinatkryss.

One solution: ACBladKryss.exe

1 input parameters (.ini-file-format)
Se below for all the parameters, use your own editor and paste inside the box if you prefer
2 some help text in swedish
Link to this page from Caption Help / hjälptext
3 choose section of parameters
Many section of parameters can be saved and used.
4 input folder to save output in.
Must be an existing folder
5 choose script to create
Try RUTNÄT för pattern first.
6 output is saved and displayed
A copy of the output is displayed here

ACBladKryss.ini file format

Parameters for the script are in "[.ini-file-format]" Parameters are automatically saved in the file ACBladKryss.ini. This file is read when the program starts.
