Q - question

3DintCurves - intersections of curves with 3D solids.

A - answer Using the freeware LISP utility 3DintCurves you can find all intersections of specified lines and curves with selected 3D solids.

Download the 3DintCurves utility from Download, load it into your AutoCAD using APPLOAD and run it by typing the 3DINTCURVES command. Select the curve or curves to be investigated (lines, ray, polylines, arcs, circles, splines, ellipses, helices) and the 3D solid or solids to check for the intersection. Entities of the type Point will be created at the points of 3D intersections, these will be highlighted by preselection and a list of their X,Y,Z coordinates will be displayed.
