Q - question

Create or modify a part reference (AMPartRef) from AutoLISP.

A - answer In AutoCAD Mechanical, you can create and modify (name, properties, material, etc.) objects of the Part Reference (AMPARTREF) type using the commands AMPARTREF and AMPARTREFEDIT. However, if you need to create or modify such an object programmatically or by script or from a menu, it is not easy.

That's why we in ARKANCE have prepared a sample LISP with functions for creating a sample part reference (AddPartRef), listing reference data (ListPartRefData), and changing data of such drawing objects - either interactively (changePartRefData) or in your own application.

You can download the complete LISP file ChangePartRef.lsp from Download and load it with APPLOAD.
