AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Error Connecting To HEC RAS-generated SDF File?

Nov 7, 2013

I have a HEC RAS model which I ran a steady flow simulation on, and then I tried to use the GIS Export button to get a .sdf file. When I tried to connect to the .sdf file in Civil 3D, I got these errors:

Failed to connect.

Failed to open FDO connection.

File is not an SDF file, or is an SDF file with an unsupported version.

An error occurred during SDF database access.

I played around with the settings I chose when I exported in HEC RAS and couldn't get any different results.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Moving Survey Points (nodes) Generated By TXT File

Jul 27, 2012

My surveyor gave me a topo survey done in no particular coordinate system. He set up his total station on a PK nail and gave it a coordiante of (5000, 5000, 100).  I used this survey to generate a surface.

I also have a site survey of the same site, done in state plane coordinate system. the two surveys have mulitple common points; pk nails, iron pins ect.

What i need to do is move the points for the topo survey over to the survey that is in state plane. A simple move command will not do this.

How do i go about moving these points to thier correct location without having to manually edit the .txt file?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: LiDAR Generated Surfaces

Jan 14, 2011

I have recently upgraded to Civil 3D 2011 when we started receiving LiDAR data.  I have been playing around with the data a bit and have a few questions on how the data is dealt with.  It appears that when a point cloud is added to a surface, it is using the point cloud display somehow to generate the TIN.  I believe that the point cloud display is showing a percentage of points based on the maximum number of 1.5 million points.  On these particular datasets (citywide LiDAR coverage, about 2,600' x 2,600' panels), we may have 4-7 million points in each LAS file.  Is Civil 3D ignoring all points beyond 1.5 million in surface building operations?  Also, when adjusting the slider, is there any way to know which points will be displayed...or maybe the points are reduced randomly??

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Calculate Cut Generated From A Pipe Network?

Oct 11, 2013

Is there a way to have C3D calculate your cut generated from a pipe network? I have a site with storm, sewer, and water lines. All of which are on 3 seperate pipe networks. I also have my finished grade surface established.

I know you can get the volume difference between two surfaces (EG&FG) but you would think you could do this for the pipe networks as well...

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multiple Auto Generated Point Groups

Mar 21, 2012

I am running into a problem where Civil 3D is creating multiple point groups of my 4 existing groups (the original group names are Topo, Existing Ground, Hide, and All Points).  The new groups seem to be copies of the originals in terms of styles but do not include the points  that were designated in the originals (no points are assigned in these copies).

The groups appear some time after I create the surface.

I've also noticed that this occurs in my list of grading criteria as well.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Merging Surfaces Connecting Grading

Apr 25, 2013

As you can see in my attachment, I have a emergency spillway coming out of a dugout wetland.  The fill area, the pool area, and the emergency spillway channel are all separate surfaces.  All three of these surfaces are created from gradings.  The fill was a feature line drawn around the top witdth of the dam, and then graded down to the Existing Ground.  The channel is another polygon feature line with elevations at each PI and then graded up to the EG.  The pool was a feature line I drew around the perimeter of my pool, laid on the surface EG, and then graded down to an elevation on a slope. 

I'd really like to blend all the surfaces together.  Right now, they are all separated with tiny slivers of Existing Ground.

How do I go about this?  As you can see, I'm still pretty green with gradings.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Connecting To SHP File Data / Scaling / Units

Sep 12, 2012

So have a university campus map that was drawin in normal AutoCAD with no coordinate system. I am trying to geo-regefernce it.  I was able to get ahold to a SHP file of the campus buidings from another entity on campus that have field verfied coordinates of all the buildings and drawn them in ArcGIS.  What I would like to do is connect to the shape file and then move my CAD map "on top" of the shape file buildings and do any adjustments I might need.  Then my CAD map would be "geo-referenced".

My problem is that when I connect to the shape file the building in the shape file are 1/12 the size of the CAD drawn buildings.  I am assuming that this is because the CAD buiding were drawn as 1 unit = 1" whereas the SHP buildings were drawn as 1 unit = 1'.  

I can scale down my CAD building by 1/12 .

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Manage All Of Duplicate File Names Generated Over Time

Jan 24, 2012

I'm trying Frame Generator one last time to design the custom frames we build for our equipment. I've always had problems with getting FG to generate the right part numbers and file names. I have the part numbers figured out, but does Frame Generator still not have a good way to automatically create unique file names for frame members? If no one can get it to automatically generate unique file names, how do you manage all of the duplicate file names generated over time?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Thickness Of Each Of Layers In Assembly Are Generated From Part File

Dec 13, 2013

I have an assembly in which the thickness of each of the layers in an assembly are generated from a part file that is split via a sketch. I use the Make Components tool to break the part into the individual layers, which also spits out an assembly. 

Is there a way to push the thickness value of these parts that will update automatically if the thickness is changed in the parent part, in order to reference this property on the drawing?

Lightroom :: Incorrect File Names Generated During Export

Nov 22, 2013

I have a hard drive published service configured in Publishing Manager that creates JPGs of any images that are placed into that published service.  For the most part all the settings I specify on that service are adhered to when I "publish now".  However one setting appears to be ignored and that is File Naming | Rename To:. 
In the configuration of that option in Publishing Manager I have the rename to option set to "Filename - Sequence".  When this option is set the example text it states at the bottom of file naming displays what I expect it be on output.  However, when I "publish now" the file exports but with the original file name of the photo.   Let me explain further.  Typically when I've fully processed the photo I use the Lightroom file rename option to rename the file from the orginal import name to something more descriptive.
This seems to work fine with both the information in LR and the actual file name being correctly displayed.  Even when I select the file for publishing the example file name show matches the new name after rename.  However, the actual file generated always as the original imported file name.  This happens for all files.
I'm using LR 5.2 on Windows 8.1.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Fatal Error When Defining Surface With ADF File

Aug 21, 2013

I have downloaded ArcGrid (ADF) files from the USGS and am trying to define a TIN surface in Civil 3D with those files.  I have done this in the past without difficulty but now I get a fatal error and the system crashes in the middle of the process.  The ADF files are large, approximately 465 meg, and cover an entire USGS quad area.  Is there any tricks or sollutions that would allow me to use this data source to create surfaces without my system crashing?

The system I am using is a Dell Intel Xeon CPU, W365@3.20GHz with 24 GB RAM, 64 Bit OS.

Verify that the files exists and that you can access it. Needless to say AutoCad wont open all I get is Retry or Cancel, selecting.

Retry just gets the same error so when I Cancel I then get "Are you sure you want to Cancel" which I select and then I get the message Fatal Error during installation.

This is a downloaded install from Autodesk and I dont have discs available.

Photoshop :: When Printing Vector Based Program Generated PDF File

Apr 13, 2013

I bought a software which comes with a camera auto-focus calibration chart. The manufacturer mentioned that this chart is generated by a vector base program so customers can ajust the size of chart without any problem. The chart file is in pdf format.
When I use my Photoshop CS5 (on Windows 7) to print it from my Epson 2200 inkject printer, it only print the vector part without filling up  the inside of the vectors enclosed area to black. Even the words in the footer are printed the vectors only (without fillup the word with black).
what's the cause.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Error / The Microsoft Jet Database Engine Cannot Open The File

Aug 28, 2012

We are using AutoCAD Civil 3D Land Desktop Companion 2009 on all machines and one of our machines is getting the message "Error opening Point Database" and then gives the project file pathcogopoints.mdb.

It also gives the message "The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file.  It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data."  It is not opened by another user and permissions have been given for all machines to access these files.

Background information:  We move older projects to an external hard drive for archiving and occasionally need to access them as the need arises.  We have done this successfully for some time without issue, but now one of our machines is giving the above error.  The other machine, which the external hard drive is connected, does not have this problem.  We tried moving one project file back to the original location and it seemed to work okay, but another file did not.  Some files were created using an older vrsion of AutoCAD, but that has not been a problem with opening them in the past.  All sharing permissions to the external hard drive have been checked and seem to be working properly.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Part Builder - Error Saving COLE File

I'm trying to do a save as of a previously created and validated part.  When I create a new chapter and try to save the part in the new chapter, I get an error message saying "ERROR SAVING COLE FILE".  What is a COLE file and why am I getting this error?  Could there be a problem because the original part was created in 2013, and now I'm working in 2014?

We recently changed the location of our CAD Standards (such as Pipe Network Catalog).  Can I simply copy the Pipe Network Catalog and paste it to the new location and have everything work the same or do I have to do something special?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Importing ASCII File Error / Rounds Elevation To Nearest Foot

Aug 12, 2013

I am battling is bringing in LiDAR files from ArcGIS. I have tried TXT and ASC, and they both seem to only maintain the elevation to the nearest foot, as you can see in the attached image.

What is strange, is that when the file is brought back into GIS, this issue is a problem. Is there a setting for reducing the amount of units when importing data? The text file as I shared has data to the thousandth.
