AutoCAD 2010 :: How To Get The Old Array Style Back

Jun 2, 2011

My company just got all new computers and upgraded out AutoCAD to 2012 from 2009. And every single drafter has complained to me that the new Array is terrible. Basically, it seems to take 10 times as long to set up and array as it used to and now it's linking all of the objects together as a group which is absolutely terrible for what we do especially when we are making 4 or 5 columns or hundreds of objects. I cant find any classic or legacy array commands.

This really needs to be put back in because right now everyone is asking us to put AutoCAD 2009 back on the computers, and the whole reason we bought new PCs is because they couldn't run anything after 2009 without being too slow to be productive.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Can't Remove Legend Font Style Or Table Style?

Nov 5, 2009

There is a font and table style called "Legend" that is automatically generating and can not be purged.

I have looked through all the start up files, all the lisp files and can't find anything that would be creating them!

They appear in any file I open, new or old and even if I open a template file.

I have attached a file that should be empty but you will (or should) see both a font and table style called "Legend".

(FYI I am running AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 as AutoCAD 2010)

AutoCad 3D :: Realistic Visual Style Has Changed And Can't Get It Back

May 15, 2013

i've been plaing with my CUI and found there were a lot more visual styles than i thought so added a few to the dashboard to try out. trouble is, a few have similar names and the same icon and now my realistic that i liked is not available.

now it's kinda semi-transparent.... before it was totally opaque. the same with my 'conceptual'...i can see far too much geometry.

btw i don't have a personal CUI or whatever the procedure is....i just modify the main one when inclined.

i've made a toolabr with ALL the listed visual styles on it and gone through them all but none of them gets it back to the opaque version.

^^^ this is in model space only. viewing from paper space it's the same as it always was.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Polar Array Function

Jul 2, 2013

I have drawn a bar counter in 3d which has a top rectangular shape with curved corners. The front of the bar has 100mm wide wooden fascia panels and they need to follow the line of the bar. I am using the Polar Array function which works great except I cant seem to get the panels to follow the curves/arcs around the corners, but they sit neatly on all the straight edges of the bar. So in other words the panels are straight and lined up on the straight parts of the bar but the panels stay at 90 degrees instead of following the curved areas of the bar.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Edit Array With Parameters Manager

Oct 23, 2012

I want to make a grid that is adjustable by editing parameters. I want to change the size of the blocks. And i want to change the number of blocks in the x-direction and y-direction.

I have created a square with a width of 50mm and a height of 20mm. I have created 2 parameters called width and height. Next I added dimensions to the square and i call those dimensions width and height. Now I can adjust the width and height of the square by editing the parameters.

Next I want to copy this square in the x- and y-direction so that you get a grid. The number of copies in x-direction I call number-x. The same in the y-direction.

I then link the number-x and number-y to 2 parameters that i have named number-x and number-y.

The distance between the squares has to be the same as the size of the first square. Only then you get a grid. So i created parameters for this to. I call them width2 and height2.

Now I can adjust the size of the grid by editing these parameters. When i change number-x or number the grid becomes larger. But when i want to change the size of the initial square, it doesn't work. I think because of the fact that the first square has become a part of an array.

How to make a grid that is adjustable nu editing parameters in the parameters manager?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Do Solid / Subtract With Array Items

Sep 27, 2011

If you have a housing with say, 12 cylinders in the flange which are to be cut out of the housing to become the 12 bolt-holes.  If you positioned your cylinders using polar array, are you supposed to be able to use the command solid/substract?  I can't as it won't pick the array parts to cut.  I had to resort to rotating/copy all the cylinders around the flange and then it works great. Any way to do holes through a solid...

AutoCad 2D :: Use Path Array Feature On 2013 To Array Stairs

Sep 19, 2012

I'm trying to use the PATH array feature on 2013 to array stairs, and I can't get the array to be 100% accurate. It seems like CAD rounds the decimal to the nearest 3/4" which could be causing the problem.

I set my run to 10.5" and rise to 7.25", array along the angle of the stringer, and there's always a small overlap on the stairs. The "distance between" should be 1'-209/256" and CAD rounds it to 1'-3/4" which is where I believe the error is. Is there any way to fix this or array this correctly? Otherwise...back to the COPY method I suppose.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Create Array (of Circles) That Stretch To Length Of Bar Spanning Left To Right

Aug 16, 2012

Okay, I'm new to associative arrays, I'm attaching a drawing so you can see what I'm trying to accomplish with this.  I'm doing an elevation view of a slab that has a cross section of the rebar.  I've shown one of the bars spanning from left to right, represented by a rectangle, and the cross section of the bars running front to back represented by circles. You can see what I'm trying to show here.  In the drawing I've attached, the top three sketches are examples of how this would look if it were working correctly.

What I'm trying to do is create an array (of circles) that will stretch to the length of the bar spanning left to right.  I want the quantity of items in the array to automatically change based on the length of the bar and the spacing of items, so if there is 6" of spacing between the items instead of 12" it will automatically add twice the amount of items to fill in that space.  I've been trying to use a path array, and it isn't working the way I want.  I'm not familiar with rectangular arrays, so not sure what to do there either.

Xara :: Any Way To Get Old Style Drawing Back Like Xtreme 2

Aug 20, 2013

the new Xara Pro X9, but did happen to notice... Is there any way to get the old style drawing back like Xara Xtreme 2? In Xara Pro X9, it seems you have to drag a line to make one, where in the older versions it was click a point move click another point and it draws a line between them, it was much easier to draw lines and bend them on the fly with the older version, or am I missing a step with the new software.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Ribbon Disappeared / How To Get It Back

Aug 27, 2009

I've been trying to incorporate my menus and toolbars into the ribbon environment. I skipped acad 09 so this hasn't been fun. I used the transfer feature in the cui environment to get everything I wanted. I go to 2d environment to check that everything is there and it appears to be there. I load my cui and I get my icons and menus but no ribbon. I have a big message that says, "The Ribbon does not have any tabs or panels currently loaded." I type ribbon to load, but nothing.

I've now messed with this enough that even with the base acad.cuix file I still don't have the ribbons.

AutoCAD 2010 :: How To Get Hatch Patterns Back

Feb 24, 2012

I have been using AutoCAD Civil 3D lately but went to use my AutoCAD 2011 I noticed I have no hatch patterns. I thought that these patterns were located in the support folder so I got my DVD that has the program on it out and was going to reload AutoCAD to fix the problem. It would not reload it so I copied the support folder to my computer in the AutoCAD file and still nothing. What can I do to get my hatch patterns back?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Hiding Constraints - How To Keep Them From Turning Back On

Jun 7, 2012

I'm trying to find an option to hide all constraints in a drawing, I am familiar with the toolbar option to turn display constraints on and off but my issue is that it's not a permanent toggle.  Every time I change from a paper tab to the model tab or activate a viewport the constraint display is automatically turned on again and I must wait for the constraints and the drawing to generate.  When playing checker I am frequently changing tabs or checking within a viewport, this is adding significant time required to check the drawing.  I have not been able to locate a system variable or command to "freeze" the constraints until I want to see them again.  an option to allow me to turn off constraint displays as I'm desiring or is this a Wish List item for R2014?

AutoCAD 2010 :: 3D CLIP Displays Back Faces

Mar 22, 2013

I use the 3DCLIP command a lot in my work.

What is really disappointing is that whenever a solid (or xref or block) is sectioned this way, it shows a back faces of that object. It makes the view messy and confusing, and then I have to use whiteout all over my paper space to make the drawing readable.

See attached PDF.
