AutoCAD Map 3D :: Raster Extension Options - Memory Limit Setting

Nov 23, 2009

I am having a problem with the memory limit setting. I am setting my memory limit to be 2056 MB, but it will not keep the setting. I can change it and get a message stating that the change will not work until I restart Civil 3D (Map 3D). When I do that, it goes back to a 204 MB limit instead of the 2 GB I want.

How can I get Civil (Map) to remember this setting?

Xara :: 32-bit Memory Limit Removal Utility

Nov 18, 2009

I recently came across a particularly magical piece of software located here for free. It allows 32-bit programs to address more than 2 GB of memory. It may only work for 64-bit systems though, not sure (i.e. those with CPUs that can work on 64-bit OSs).

I mention this because Xara sometimes crashes with out of memory errors, such as when making large panoramas or doing something else that consumes GBs of memory. By using this utility on the Xara exe to allow it to address more memory than normal, the crashes can stop. This also applies to any other memory intensive software that shows similar behaviour, and makes them much more stable.

The instructions for using the utility to modify exes is below:


open the program
goto file > open
then find the exe file... in this case it would be xtreme.exe in ./program files/xara/...

On the left side you'll see "NT HEADER".... "DOS HEADER"... etc Highlight "FILE HEADER" under "NT HEADER" On the right side you'll see a chart and in the bottom right corner you will see "CLICK HERE" Click on that and a check box menu system will open. Scroll down the menu list until you see "app can handle > than 2gig address space" and check that. Save the file and close.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Raster Image Panel Missing

May 16, 2013

I'm using C3D 2013 on a 64 bit windows 7 machine.  I have basejump loaded, and when I first installed it there would be a "Raster" tab in the ribbon that would allow me to resample, etc.  That tab is now gone. How to get it back?

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Limit Of Rock Cut For A Land Development Project

Mar 23, 2013

I need to determine a limit of rock cut for a land development project.  I have created surfaces for my Existing Grade and Top of Rock.  Is there any way to determine the limit of rock cut within 25 ft of the existing ground, the volume of rock cut, and show the limit of rock cut on my plan view? 

I could drop the Existing Grade elevations by 25 feet, but then how would I create a separate Surface from the intersection of the lowered Existing Grade surface and the Top of Rock Surface?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Raster Image Transparency

Oct 31, 2008

How can I make a raster image transparent? I would like to see image #2 below image #1 by making image #1 semi-transparent. I can make one specific color in the image transparent..I am working from a scanned image in jpeg format. I would think it should be easy because any Microsoft Office program can do it. I have searched through multiple Autodesk discussion boards to no avail.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Green Areas In PDF With Raster Image

Apr 26, 2013

I have a problem with a drawing, containing aerial images.

If I try to plot it as PDF, using "Adobe PDF" or "PDF-Creator" as printer, I see green areas in my PDF. Here the result:

If I use the AutoCAD Printer "DWG to PDF.pc3", there is no problem. Here the result:

For the creating of PDF files I can use the AutoCAD printer, that is no problem, but I have the same Problem if i try to plot a drawing with aerial images on a Plotter (HP 1050C) or any other printer in our office.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Raster Image Regeneration Freeze

Apr 25, 2013

I'm having an issue where the more I zoom into a drawing that has a raster image (a 1mb jpg) in it, regenerating times become increasingly long until the whole program just freezes. When I zoom back out, it's fine.

I've tried changing the file type, saving it with a different program, lowering the quality to Draft, zooming in on an area that the raster image wasn't in, lowering the DPI of the image, nothing works. I've spent the last two hours searching Google for a fix, found nothing. The only thing that seems to work is if I put the image on a layer and freeze it. The problem there is, I'm tracing over the image, so it being invisible makes it rather difficult to work with.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Reference A Sid Raster Image And Have It Clippable?

Apr 5, 2013

I'm still learning some of the basics in the AutoCAD Map features.  Most of my work has been using a map that is connected to data.  My raster image is connected to a Sid file which covers more area than I usually need to work with.

What is the best way to work with a small area at a time? I cannot seem to imageclip the connected raster image.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Raster Image Transparency

Mar 20, 2012

I have a small raster image (png) xrefed to an Autocad 2012 dwg.  The image is on its own layer and the transparency of the layer is set to 60%.

When I select TPY the image displays correctly on the screen (i.e. semi-transparent).  When I tick Plot transparency in the Plot dialog box and send the plot to our HP Designjet 800 the raster image prints exactly as I want (semi-transparent).

However when  I use the Autodesk pdf writer (Dwg to pdf) the resulting pdf does not have the semi transparent appearance and the raster image appears in all its brilliant color even though it displays correctly (i.e. semi-transparent) in Print Preview. And, yes, I have ticked the Plot transparency box before seeing it to the pdf writer. Other autocad entities such as plines which are semi transparent are fine, its only the raster image that seems to lose its semi-transparent quality.

AutoCad :: Bind Raster Image To Drawing?

Jun 22, 2011

Is there anyway to bind a raster image to a drawing?

Everytime I bind/insert my title block the images dont bind in and also the file paths get deleted. Asked most of the drafters I know and everyone says it cant be done, which is what i think.

Normally I would use a CAD version of the Logos (for the client/architect,etc.) but sometime there isnt one available so have to use raster images.

AutoCad :: TIFF Bitonal Raster Image

Oct 8, 2008


In doing some more research on my "reference question" below, I found that the scanner we have at work creates a tiff image and apparently there are different types of tiffs. Our scanner creates a tiff with a "bitonal" color setting. How to convert a tiff with a "RGB" color setting to a tiff with a "bitonal" color setting. I have done some searches but have come up with very little information about the subject. I would prefer to be able to do this with autocad software if it can be done.

AutoCad :: PDF Underlay And Raster Image Paths?

Dec 28, 2010

AutoCAD 2010

Is there a way to change a pdf underlay path when drawing files are moved?

Is there a way to set the pdf path to match the drawing location so when a drawing?

and pdf is moved and they have the same path the pdf will be linked to the drawing?

The same can be asked about raster image files & AutoCAD?

Is there a way to set the raster image file to match the drawing location so when a drawing and rastor image is moved and they have the same path the raster image will be linked to the drawing?

AutoCAD Architecture :: Raster Image Background White

Sep 19, 2010

I have a a graphic image from a client to use as signage on my 3d model. In photoshop I have isolated the letters and the logo only by erasing the background. No color is in the background, not white nor black, it is transparent in Photoshop.

  I saved the image as a .jpg, .tif .tga. and .bmp.  Any of these raster images, when inserted into the drawing, shows the background as white.   I cannot undertsand how to make it transparent so it looks like letters painted on the wall.

 I have changed IMAGEFRAME set to 0 - no change,  I have set properties TRANSPARENCY to YES but no change.

Am I missing a step, or does the program always show raster images in a box?

AutoCAD LT :: Raster Image Alignment In Output Pdf File

Oct 29, 2013

I am using a tiff file as a Raster Image Reference while drawing over it in AutoCad LT for mac. The raster file is 8200 x 5700.  If I examine the autocad drawing by zooming in closely the alignment is perfect. However, when I create an A0 pdf file of the drawing there is an alignment error between the raster image and the vector drawing on the x axis. The y axis alignment is perfect.

I believe it is a scaling error since there is no visible alignment error on the left hand side of the drawing and the error increases across the drawing to the right hand side. The error is small, about 0.2% but it is clearly visible in the pdf file.

To illustrate the problem I have put a test mark on the top right hand corner of the drawing outline and the attached file shows this portion of the drawing in autocad on the left and in the pdf file on the right.

I have tried different drivers and plot settings but the error is always there.
