Visual Basic Drawing Codes from 2D AutoCAD Drawings andVisual Basic Drawing Codes from 2D AutoCAD Drawings and Machine Parts Applications



It is of great importance to support vocational programs with graphics. Before the necessary graphic codes are written, drawings are usually prepared in the CAD environment. Then, graphic coordinates are taken from the drawing environment and software graphic codes are prepared. This situation requires a lot of effort and time.

In this study, a software has been developed in AutoLISP programming language, which converts drawings in Autocad environment into Visual Basic drawing codes in a very short time. The use of mechanical engineering drawing codes produced with the developed program is shown in visual basic environment with animation support.

The conversion of bolts, radiused parts, gear and propeller drawings in Autocad environment into Visual Basic codes and program examples are shown in the software developed in this study.

It is expected that the developed program will save time and effort in writing the graphic codes to be used in new program designs.
