I am a brand new user to LibreCAD so I will probably be asking questions - not all dumb () I hope.
I am hoping to use the software to split a bit of land up into small units to identify who has access to what. I have already found a way of using the command line to add the parcels of land but is there any way that a spreadsheet or CSV file could be used to automate the process?
I know the centre point of each parcel of land and know the sizes. They are all rectangles orientated in the same east west plane.
If you can help/suggest something that would speed up the process I would love to hear from you.
It's not clear to me what you seek to achieve, but I see no way to use a spreadsheet or similar to automate the process.
Are the parcels all the same size? With Tools - Modify - Move/Copy you can make multiple copies in one direction at once. Repeat this with the resulting row a 90 degrees other direction and you get an array.
It uses Excel to create a valid command file, which can be exported in the LibreCAD command line menu.
The command line menu is the button on the right side of the command line.
In your case, create a sheet with the center coordinates, and on a second page create the formulas to create the rectangles from the center coordinates.
Copy/paste the values to the command line or save them in a text file to read in with the command line menu.
