LitioLAB 1.0 works within AutoCAD and GStarCAD as an add-on/pluggin program.
At the moment of the creation of this page it works in:
AutoCAD (up to) R2021; starting with R 200X (and Mechanical Desktop 200X); only Windows versions.
GStarCAD 2016 onwards. Only Windows versions. Recommended: Professional version.
Warning: LitioLAB DOES NOT run in Academic, Lite, nor LT versions. LitioLAB was not tested with GStarCAD Standard. Please check LitioLAB 1.0 compatibility with your CAD system (feel free to run the TRIAL mode).
The program can be manually installed by placing ALL of the LitioLAB 1.0 files in the SUPPORT directory of AutoCAD/GStarCAD.
To run LitioLAB 1.0, you first need to load it into your current drawing session. For this type the following in your CAD's command prompt:
Then, to run the program just type:

Warning: In some operating systems, to run LitioLAB 1.0 your user needs to have
the permissions or privileges, to access, write or modify files in the folder where
LitioLAB 1.0 files are located (e.g., the SUPPORT folder).
LitioLAB 1.0 modifies the LitioLAB.cfg file when you make LitioLAB 1.0 configuration [settings] changes. (LitioLAB 1.0 may need to create/modify other
files in normal operation.)
To solve this problem, you need to be logged-in as an administrator, and/or, you need to get the necessary permissions or privileges: right click the folder, properties, security tab, give permissions. (If not, when making configuration [settings] changes, they will not have any effect, and LitioLAB 1.0 might crash).
FORMULA input length is limited to 20 characters. Longer formulas will lead to the shape be drawn as
Using any of the Auxiliary parameters [formulas or constants: J1, J2, C1, C2]. Use of the auxiliary
parameters will lead to the shape be drawn as virtual objects.
XLS import, will lead to the set of points be drawn as a virtual object(s).
Parabolas - 3 point pick. Parabolas with a 4th or 5th point picked (the point that define the parabola
limits [that trim or extend the parabola]) will lead to the parabola be drawn as a virtual object.
Catenaries, when the end points are at an angle of more than 10Â°, will be drawn as a virtual object.
Saving resulting coordinates to CSV file not available.
These virtual objects are not part of the drawing, and will disappear after a ZOOM, REGEN, REDRAW, PAN, etc.
