LABEL PROFILES WITH CORRECT STATION AND ELEVATION BY PICKING. GET YOUR STYLE BY USING YOUR OWN BLOCKS.
PROFLBL.LSP is a Free Software tool to label civil engineering profiles by picking. Once you set all the options, you can label a point with simply two clicks.
Very simple. No grand schemes. No headaches. No typos. No calculator required. Everything you need to get started is included.
Download PROFLBL.ZIP (save it to your computer) by following the link on this page. Extract it to a test folder.
PROFLBL.LSP needs nothing but the included files and an empty drawing to work. Try the following exercise:
First, open a drawing and make sure the PROFLBL.LSP blocks are in the same folder with that drawing (or elsewhere AutoCAD can find them).
Second, load and run PROFLBL.LSP by dragging it from Windows Explorer into your drawing and typing PROFLBL or PP.
Third, follow the prompts to Set a reference point and your labeling options. Then pick a point to label and a location up or down for the label.
That's all there is to it. Pretty simple, huh?
PROFLBL.LSP is 100% green. It writes nothing to the Windows registry, it creates no files beyond what you download, and it creates no permanent invisible objects in AutoCAD.
