I know the diameter of the tank, and the length of the stairs as the leave the platfor to the ground. I also know the floor elevation height, just not got a clue where to start.

Forgot to mention the angine of the spiral staircase in 40degrees.

AutoCad 3D :: Build Blocks To Use In 3D Models?

Jun 13, 2011

Is it wise to build blocks to use in 3d models?

I am working on an apartment building. In 2d I created a block of a typical unit and copied and rotated it around as needed. Can I use the same principle in 3d? Can I attach materials inside the block editor? (I built the whole thing as a sketch model with no materials, and now want to make it pretty!)

AutoCAD Inventor :: Won't Sweep Or Build Pipe Run?

Mar 22, 2012

I tried the tube and pipe run to build this segment, and cannot select the route from the 3D sketch.

This route was based off of a 3D sketch made from included geometry from another part.

Tried sweeping too - and get error that the sweeping operation did not produce a meaningful result.

But I don't get the self intersecting error.

All this is is a .250 OD and .180ID profile that needs to be run through the path.

I included the part file.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Build Adaptive Assembly

Oct 20, 2011

I built an assembly made of some sheet metal parts.

Now - I wanted it to be easily changeable, meaning: in order that each part will adjust according to the other, for instance, it's length, height etc. , and will move with it and adjust, I first made work points on the mating part edges, and then in the relevant part's sketch ( I made the work point inside of the part, not the assembly!) I projected the point.

I was sure that because I see the work point with the "adaptive" symbol , the workp point will move with the parts if I change the dimensions.

It didn't work: For some reason when I'm changing dimensions, the work point stay where it was, even though it's with the "Adaptive" symbol, which makes me wonder what does it really mean (the symbol) if it point won't move along with the part while it changes.

What is the best way for me to do it? Did I have to project the points/edges in the sketch without doing a "work point' before?

My experience with the inventor lately shows that this method isn't working either. I'm sure there a "right" way to do it!

This is very important and elementary thing to do - to adjust part (with their sketches) according to the other.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Build All Surfaces Into System

Oct 23, 2013

Until now I have used Civil 3D for small projects. Now I'm starting a large project, 30 parcels, 5 roads in rough terrain.

Earlier I got some problems with some surfaces of the new construction that unwanted connected together. This time I want to get control of all small new "constructions" (parcels and roads) and connect them to the surface. I realize the original surface will be covered 100% of new terrain. How will I be able to connect all the surfaces together so that I can eventually create a single surface with all the new designs? (and run the waterdrop :-)

How to build all surfaces into the system?

AutoCad 3D :: How To Build Spherical Solid And Earth Map

Jul 21, 2013

I am trying to build a spherical, solid, earth map.

I have built one before by extruding a flat projection of the earth map through a hollow solid sphere shell, and using subtract. (I had to do it in sections, and projecting in different angles until I completed the world map). There was an intermediate step of subtracting the extruded map from a solid block and creating a void shape of the map within the block, then subtracting the block from the hollow sphere).

The problem I had is that the edges of the map where not cut off in an angle towards the center of the globe, and I need all the edges be sliced towards the center of the globe.

I am trying now to use the LOFT command and create a solid map that tapers down towards the center of the globe. I have bought these special map projections (2D) called "gnomonic projections". They were originated by projecting from the center of an earth globe the contour of the continents over projeccion plains outside the globe. (this was done using a map cartography software and converted to .dwgs).

These projections are made of thousands (or millions) of polylines joined together, and the probelm is that AutoCAD gets stuck when trying to use LOFT. I was able to LOFT just a little island, but it gave me surfaces instead of a solid. If I use this method I will have to do hundreds (or thousands) of little sections with LOFT to achieve the entire map.

Any better way to build this solid spherical map?. Or where I can buy this spherical solid of the world continents from? I have seen these solids sometimes in the background of television news programs, I just need a little better contour definition than what the show.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Possible To Create Weld Build Up Around A Part

Oct 5, 2012

I'm starting with a tube and want to add a weld build up around the OD on both ends. I mainly want to do this so that when I create a sectioned view on a drawing, you can see the difference in hatching between the original tube and the weld build up. I've had to create sketches on the drawing up to this point.

The photo I've attached shows the tube and shape of the weld build up. the green line is where I would like the tube OD to be, and the weld build up would be everything above that.

I'm using Inventor Pro 2013.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Client Application (COM C++) Suddenly Will Not Build

Apr 19, 2013

My Civil 3D 2013 client application (COM C++) suddenly will not build:

error C4772: #import referenced a type from a missing type library; '__missing_type__' used as a placeholder..fatal error C1084: Cannot read type library file: 'C:/Program Files/Common Files/Autodesk Shared/AecXBase70.tlb': Error loading type library/DLL.

The type library is imported in the following way in StdAfx.h (as I have done for several years now, though with different version (60, 65, 67 etc.) each year):

#import "C:Program FilesCommon FilesAutodesk SharedAecXBase70.tlb"  raw_interfaces_only named_guids no_namespace

I have tried to reinstall Civil 3D 2013 but that did not work. I probably also should mention that I have installed Civil 3D 2014, but that was over a week ago and I have been able to build since then.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Metal Spool / How To Build And Animate

Feb 19, 2012

I'm trying to simulate an assembly line that draws sheet metal off of a spool. I need to

1. Build the spool. I don't have the slightest clue as to how to do this. I would just create a really long sheet and then use a command to "roll it up".

2. Animate the spool unwinding. I have have rollers on an assembly line that, in real life, would draw the sheet metal out. I can drive these rollers but how to get the rollers to "drive" the sheet metal.

Photoshop :: Build A New Box For CS6 Standard And LR4

Sep 14, 2012

In preparing to build a new box for CS6 standard and LR4 (Win7, 64bit), I am not finding much info on how much video card memory CS6 is likely to be happy with, or, more accurately, what the upper limit of its usage is likely to be.
I'm running a card with 1GB now in CS5 standard and I have found that some GPU operations, such as Oil Paint in Pixel Bender, will choke and fail on 12MP, 16bit images -- normally after CS5 delivers this warning: Storage requirement for complex filters may overload GPU when processing large images.
do I need more GPU horsepower, more VRAM, or both? I know that Photoshop can allegedly get by with some fairly pedestrian hardware (I'm using an nVidia GT440 at the moment), but I plan on upgrading when building new. I'd just like to know if 2GB of VRAM will ever be used by Photoshop and how beefy a GPU I really need for processing the aforementioned 12MP, 16bit images (at some point that MP number will only become larger).
Partial list of proposed build in case it's relevant:
INTEL, Core™ i7-3770K
CORSAIR, 16GB (4 x 4GB)
EVGA, GeForce® GTX 560 1GB
Win7 64bit

GIMP :: How To Build Git To /opt In SuSE 12.x

Oct 7, 2012

Tried to build git on SuSE 12.2, here's what I tried after I resolved some build deps:

export PATH=/opt/gimp-git/bin:$PATH
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/gimp-git/lib/pkgconfig
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/gimp-git/lib

then from same shell:

git clone git://
cd babl
./ --prefix=/opt/gimp-2.8
sudo make install

So far, so good. Now when I try to build GEGL against the new BABL I get after

cd gegl
./ --prefix=/opt/gimp-git
"checking for BABL... no
configure: error: Package requirements (babl >= 0.1.10) were not met:
No package 'babl' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables BABL_CFLAGS and BABL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details."
