AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Can't Turn Transparency Of Raster Images Off When Using Data Connect

Jul 23, 2012

I have a set of four images I am referencing into a drawing through the data connect feature found in Planning and analysis that overlap. I am running Civil 3D 2013. I would like to be able to clip the images as well as turn off the transparency but I can't seem to figure out how. If you select the images cadd thinks it is an image referenced outside of Data connect, but the clipping tool doesn't work, and it doesn't even matter if you de-select print transparency in the page setup, it still prints transparent. Is there another set of commands or tools that I am not aware of that allows you to edit an image brought in through the data connect?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Poor Quality When Printing Raster Image Connected Through Data Connect

Aug 19, 2011

I am using two different types of raster ECW and MrSid. ECW file resolution goes way down when plotting. They look like blocks. MrSid files look fuzzy but alot better than ECWs. I've tried RASTERTHRESHOLD, and RASTERPERCENT. Both are set to 90. Using HP6100ps.

Images are fine when using Imageinsert.

Is there a setting i'm missing somewhere for them?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Panel Is Missing / Data Connect Route Doesn't Work

May 3, 2013

I've just installed Civil3D, 64-bit on windows 7(running on bootcamp) and am trying to insert a georeferenced raster image but have encountered some issues. 

1. "Home tab>>Data panel>>>insert An Image" - The data panel is missing and it's also not found in "customize palettes" 

2. Trying the data connect route does not work either: Display manager>>>Data>>>Connect To Data - There is no 'Data' option and I cannot connect to Data.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Connect And Transformation Settings

Jul 29, 2013

I have geotif images that I've purchased from Washoe County GIS. They have world files that work great with data connect. That is, as long as I want to work at sea level. We have a Combined Factor mandated by the County for all record maps. it's a simple grid to ground factor. I can set this factor in the drawing settings and import my sea-level coordinate files just fine. The pboblem is that I can't get the Data Connect to work with the transform settings.The problem is the same with Geotif files and SHP files. I've tried using an x-reference drawing to insert the Geotif and then scale up the geotif but the imagery doesn't scale up.

Is it a program bug that keeps Data Connect from recognizing the transformation settings?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Insert SID File Using Data Connect

Jul 26, 2013

I am trying to insert an Mr Sid file using Data Connect. I am running 2011 C3D. When I try adding the file to the dwg, it tries to execute the query, but then I get an error "There was a problem adding data to map."

The folder containing the SID file has two other files...the .sdw file and the metadata file. Is there another file missing? Or is the SID file too's 1.6GB.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: SHP File Data Connect Imports To Wrong Coordinate System

Jul 11, 2013

When the attached shape file (change soilmu_a_a.txt to .shp) is imported using MAPIMPORT the data aligns with other imported georeferenced raster imagery (said imagery was imported using the MAPIINSERT command).  If the same shape file is imported using the data connect tool it shows up in a much different location (see word document).

The drawing coordinate system code is "UTM83-18F" and the data was downloaded from the Web Soil Survey's data download with the identical coordinate system (see attached readme.txt).

I prefer to use the data connect option when importing this type of shape file because I can label them all using a theme and use stylize the data for visualization/presentation.

As an aside, I have found that data connect does not automatically transform data coordinate systems to match your drawing coordinate system as advertised.  I've used the edit coordinate system to no avail; however, again when the file is imported using MAPIMPORT and saved as a drawing (with native data coordinate system) and then that drawing is queried from a drawing in a different coordinate system it seems to transform the coordinate system just fine.  Is this a problem with data connect?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: DWG Insert That Contains Data Connect

May 15, 2013

I have tried the XREF route to look to another drawing to bring in my NED files instead of putting my NEDS with my shapes and point data.  The drawing that contains the NEDS were brought in using data connect.  When I xref the NED drawing into a new drawing, nothing shows up.  Zoom Extents does not show anything nor does anything appear to be turned off.   When I do the xref, I see the image of the tiled NEDS and click on use georeferenced location (because I am trying to trick the neds to stay together but translate together).  Is there a better way or what could I be missing to get it to show.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Surface To Raster Data (ADF Files)

Sep 28, 2012

A GIS person has asked me if I was able to convert a Civil 3D surface they have received into raster data files so she can use the data with ArcGIS.  Just wondering if this is possible with Map3D?  She normally gets someone in another office to do it, he uses an ArcGIS addon to take the data of the surface and converts it.  The result is a bunch of ADF files and an XML file.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: How To Connect To Non-spatial Data In SQL Server

Nov 20, 2013

We have a SQL Server instance that I connect to over our network. I can access it when I log into SQL Server Management Studio. In AutoCAD Map 3D 2014 I do not have the option to "Add SQL Server Connection". I tried using the SQL Server Spatial connection but the database does not have spatial data. I only see a list of tables but they cannot be added as feature classes and display the message "The feature class doesn't exist" when I click on a table. I also don't have the SQL ServerProvider.dll in the FDO folder. I tried copying the .dll from version 2012 but it didn't work.

How do I connect to my non-spatial data in SQL Server? Is this a permissions issue?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Data Connect Fails To Add Image

May 28, 2013

I'm having trouble connecting to data in Civil 3D 2013. Data connect appears to make the connection, but when I click the "Add to Map" button, all the check boxes on my data get unchecked and nothing is added to the drawing.

I first noticed this using the Basejump add on, but it now happens any time I attempt to connect to any data.

No error messages appear.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Data Connect Image Off-scale Print

Sep 26, 2012

Data Connect Image Printing problem.I have an Aerial image that I bought in via Data Connect.  It's been working well for a while.  Suddenly the next time I go to Print, either to the plotter, DWF or PDF, for some reason the entire Image is thrown to the northwest corner of the viewport at a miniscule scale!  The image is fine on-screen, until you print or even do a print preview!

I tried disconnecting and reconnecting, did an audit before I reconnected, deleted all my Cache files, but to no avail!  This is  not the first time this has happened, but the last time it did, disconnecting, doing an audit, and deleting  the Cache files before reconnected appeared to solve the problem.  But this time (just when we upgraded to Map 3D 2012), it didn't work.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Data To Set Up Industry Model / Manipulate Raster / Saving

Dec 30, 2012

I used the industry model template for the North American electric grid, thinking it would link the data I saw on the tutorials. I am pretty sure that I need to find industry models for the electric grid now that I can't seem to get the conductors to show up on my map. Is that right? where I can find an industry model of the electric grid around Lake Michigan?

If I cannot find an industry model (a database?), can I just switch workspace to "Planning and Analysis" and import the models I have (images, West side of lake only) and attempt to manipulate those (while keeping everything I have)?

I have lost much work repeatedly upon saving. Do I always have to "check in" my data before saving?

Is there an easier way to match-up roster images (that aren't GEOTiffs) to shape files (that have a coordinate system) rather than using "scale," "rotate" and "move"? I didn't have luck with the "pick" option and monkeying around with manual manipulation didn't match up well. Perhaps there is a way to manipulate points on an image?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Connect Parts List Data From One Sheet To Detail View In Another?

Mar 9, 2012

Background:  Our company has decided to switch from drafting in AutoCAD to Inventor (which we already use to model) and we have started looking at making our templates intuitive using iProperties, parameters, and functions to reduce manual entry of part information in turn to reduce human error.  None of us have any experience coding besides a bit of LISP.

Problem: Perhaps it is a pipe dream, but one thing I would really like resolved is we have no connection between the Parts list information (specifically item number and quantity) on the assembly sheet and the part detail on another sheet.  Our custom part detail title block pulls the material information and "Inventory Part Number" from custom iProperties we have set up at the part level, but we still need to reference the parts list in the other sheet and then manually enter the item number and quantity.  Is there a way to use the "Inventory Part Number" property (which shows up in the parts list on a different sheet) to populate our custom block?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Combining Feature Data (Adding Data To Shape File)

Apr 24, 2012

I have a master shape file that contains parcel ID, owner, tax info., etc. I have another file ( access 2003 -open to better file format suggestions-) which contains parcel ID and a "yes" or " no" entry for whether or not the parcel needs a new water meter. All I want to do is add the water meter information into the other shape file. This would create one shape file with one table with all the information that I need.

Ultimately I will use the information to do a map query and find out spatially where i need new water meters.

Right now i have the master shape file connected though the “Connect to Data” feature. I also have the new data added to the drawing though the Data sources------>attach under the “Map Explorer” Task pane. I attached access file (ver. 2003 .mdb) which has two columns “Parcel ID” and “Meter”.

I right click on the shape file under the display manager and select”Create a Join;” however my water meter table is not listed as an option. Will this not work?

Plan B - I tried to Create and connect to the access file as an ODBC connection. Followed this guy’s directions to a T [URL]. But when i populate my table under the fdo connection the column headings exist ( “parcel ID” and “Meter”) but the actual data is missing. Am I missing something important?

Note: I am running c3d 2012 on a  Win 7 64 Bit machine. I also removed office 32 bit apps and installed 64 bit apps to see if that would solve the problem. No go.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Use FDO Data To Populate Custom Data Field Expression

Apr 10, 2013

say you make some parcels in your project with custom data fields like: id_no, permit_no, acres_served etc. you attach an agency provided shape file via an fdo connection that has many fields of information like above.

when you right click on your parcel and do parcel properties you get a tab that lets you input the custom parcel data.

lets say you print an fdo map label showing, say, the id_no, provided in the shape file.  Then in your custom parcel properties for id_no you type that in.

is there a way to make an expression to put in the other custom parcel properties that will read, say, the permit_no(id_no) from the fdo like and put that information in the custom parcel property field?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Shortcuts Transferring Super Elevation Data

Jun 7, 2012

I'm having problems getting super elevation data to transfer to different drawings by means of an alignment data shortcut.  I know alignments hold the super elevation data so I've gone into my alignments data shortcut, input my super elevation data, saved and closed.  Now when I open my finished grade drawing, reference in my alignment and profiles, then create a corridor from that information, my super elevation didn't transfer with the reference.

I pulled cross sections and it appears is has no clue there is any super elevation data.  Also, I tried bringing it directly into the drawing I'm doing my corridors in and it erred saying I must be in the parent alignment drawing.  Data shortcuts are pretty much useless to me if super elevation data doesn't transfer.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: FDO Connect To SID

Nov 21, 2013

I've started connecting to Raster (.sid) Aerials thru mapwspace rather than inserting them thru the Planning and Analysis Workstation due to greater control with gray scale and resampling raster and such.  I started noticing after I save, I can't select anything in my drawing.  I was connected to a whole county Aerial .sid file, so i thought maybe if I only connect to individual tiles for my project area which consisted of 9 .sid files, the issue would go away.  It didn't.  I tried typing REA, purge, audit, then eventually I would crash.

Is there something wrong with FDO connections with .sid files thru mapwspace in C3D 2013???

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Connect Assemblies

May 3, 2013

I'm trying to construct a complex corridor of urban highway. To simplify corridor i've made assemblies for each side of the road (see picture). This solves problem of countless number of regions (and assemblies) that I'll need to set if assemblies are for whole profile.

The problem with seperate assemblies for each side of the road is that I cannot connect them using Median subassembly because Marked point and Median are in different assemblies.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Connect Volume Tables

Aug 25, 2012

I have 4 corridors on same alignments (pics1). I created materials for each corridors (pic2). Then I created multiple section view for each corridor (pic3) ( for all corridors in section view table tab, i added corridors own materials). but cumulative material volume reset to zero at each new corridors beginning. In my project, corridors cumulative material volume value should continue from the previous corridor's value. Can i connect this volume tables or can i merge corridors ?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Map Connect Link To Geo Tiff

Jun 6, 2013

I am using the map connect command to import a geotiff file to NAD83 coordinates.  After import, the image displays correctly at the correct location, however my xref manager indicates that the image file location is in my local app folder within the C drive on my computer even though I specified the target base file on our network server.   I also noticed the map connect function converts the files to a png file.  

Because the image link resides on my computer others cannot view the image when they open the drawing.  I don't fully understand how the map connect function works, do I need to use the map insert command if I want the image to be hard linked into the drawing?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Connect Subassembly To Point 2

Apr 20, 2013

I created one section with two assemblies. Main line assembly and offset (second line) assembly. Each assembly has its own alignment and profile.In strait its all ok, but in curve I get strange situation, that I try to solve. (look to the picture)

I add Mark points on Point 1 and 3. Then connect them using Link Slopes Between Points. Knowing that Point 2 is not static, but moving point I can't find any way to connect subassembly edge point to that Point 2.

So how can I connect subassembly to Point 2? Or maybe there is a smarter way to connect points 1 and 3. Slope from 1 to 2 should be 50:1 and from 2 to 3 should be 1.5:1

I used to click on a point to select it and a new tab would show up in the ribbon to list points, edit points, etc.  That doesn't come up anymore either.
