Batch scripting for DraftSight with JTB SmartBatch

JTB SmartBatch 5.5.0 is released made it compatible with DraftSight and before that with AutoCAD 2022.

Download here. Purchase a new license or upgrade here.

JTB SmartBatch is a batch and script utility for processing multiple DWG drawings with full control with AutoCAD, BricsCAD, ZWCAD, DraftSight or GstarCAD.

JTB SmartBatch closes dialog boxes that might otherwise stop batch processing like for example dialog box showing missing fonts. Execute LSP or SCR files on multiple drawings. JTB SmartBatch handles crashes so the CAD batch processing continues to the end and leaves bad drawings to be corrected manually. Many purge and cleanup settings available. Useful before backups and distribution of drawings. The file's modified time stamp can be restored.

ZWCAD batch scripting

The free trial without license file is fully functional except that you can only batch process 10 drawings per session to give you the chance to confirm that the program works as expected. When you purchase you can use JTB SmartBatch with no limitations.

Solution for ; error: bad argument type: VLA-OBJECT nil

I run into a problem in AutoCAD trying to get a VLA-OBJECT property like this with AutoLISP/ActiveX:

(vla-get-linetypes (vla-get-activedocument (vlax-get-acad-object)))

The error:

; error: bad argument type: VLA-OBJECT nil

Accessing other properties also failed.

Reinstall of AutoCAD was needed to solve the problem. Repair did not help.
