Electrical Drafting / Do you need a Telecom Project Manager?

What Can A Telecom Project Manager Help With?
Selecting the right, highly-qualified project manager is going to be the course of action you can take to achieve success with your business. The chosen project manager should be involved in the beginning, right through to the end of the project. A contingent workforce program manager analyzes the needs of the business and can assist you with the identification of deliverables and what the project requires. Some of the responsibilities of a project manager include:

Recruiting Team Members. The recruitment of the contingent workforce is going to be your job, but your project manager is going to be the person on the ground and can tell you whether you need extra pairs of hands to complete the job.
Strategic Planning. When managing a contingent workforce, a lot of planning goes into making sure that everyone is working together. The experience that the project manager has counts here, as they will have the necessary skills to organize a large workforce.

General Discussion / Why does Revit not have an automatic load-bearing under shade?

Why does Revit not have an automatic load-bearing under shade for structural concrete columns and walls? What is under the slab supporting it is more important than what is over it.

General Discussion / Re: Updating Lisps

Hi all,
Attached are the files, the Stl,lsp, is the one Allan modified in 200?
I have modified the Stl.dcl file to suit South African Sections, and the lisp files I would like updated to run with the .dim and .dcl files. I have also attached the .mnu file I used to run the lisps with.

I have created the .dim files, but I know the first section needs to be edited, I have done it on one file I think.

The channel Section view is not right, but the other views are good, and the Angles are also good, they give a few more options than the lisp Allan modified.

I know technology has moved on a long way and these lisps should be re-written using code etc, bu I cannot afford to pay for someones time to do that.

If these lisp can be modified, great, if not I will use what I have.

Regards

AutoCAD / Re: Streamlined Methods for User Toolbox Between PC's

I agree with you about the custom workspace and tools make of the best drafting outcomes.

I dropped my custom toolbar a few years ago, just use AutoCAD out of the box. But I also use Revit and Civil 3D alot so not so much on the AutoCAD as in the past. I moved my main special tools to LISP and run them as a command as needed.

Being old school, I have recently converted from toolbars to Ribbon, and what I have done is I have created a sub-folder in AutoCAD where I keep all my lisps, icons, etc.

I created a custom workspace where I have made changes, added all my custom commands CUIX menu, and lisps etc. and in the options, Files, Support File search path, I have added my sub-directories.
I also load my lisps in start-up suite.

Once everything was up and running, I copied the files as well as the Acad CUIX file onto a stick which I use to install if I need to used a different computer. I found that the Acad CUIX file contained some of the info, so it was safer to copy it as well.

That worked for me.

Pity, but I suppose the demand for lisps has moved to other software issues. Thank you for your contribution to the 'Draffies" cause, I am sure a lot of people have benefited from your lisps.

Hopefully someone on the forum will consider maybe incorporating the lisps I have into what you did as another revision.
If not, I will continue to use the lisp you did.
