AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Make A Survey File Smaller?

Apr 17, 2013

How can one make a survey file smaller? The current file is 11 mb with survey figures and cogo points. It takes too long to load versus simple cad. How can I speed it up?

When I exported to autocad, first it crashed, then the annotation ability seemed to be missing and the points scaled/disappearred.

Or is this how it is...

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Make A Smaller Surface

Jul 26, 2012

I've downloaded a DEM and made a surface from it creating a HUGE file. I only need about an eighth of that area. How can I crop the surface to be a smaller area?  I realize I can create a boundary, but I really don't need all the data outside the boundary.... I want a smaller file so it doesn't have to create one of those *.mms files.

Surely I don't have to export the boundaried area as triangles to a regular ACAD file, then make a surface from those triangles... do I? Not that it's that big of a hassle, but seems like a roundabout way of doing things.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Compressing Layers To Make File Size Smaller?

Oct 28, 2011

I have a huge file that I am working with. I keep getting fatal errors. I am trying to make the file size smaller. Within the file there are 1836 layers, I am trying to reduce that number greatly. There are also lots and lots of blocks. I have heard that it is possible to make all of the objects on one layer and also compress layers.

Photoshop :: Make File Size Smaller

May 23, 2003

I'm trying to make this picture's file size smaller. It's the startup page for my website that I'm making. The file size is somewhere around 130 kb, and it takes a while for it to load up for a website. Yes I've used Imageready, and that doesn't help a whole lot. I just want it to load up quicker, without losing a lot of quality. The website is for the Air Force, I'm joining as a pilot and am making a site documenting my growing up in an air force family, and my going in the Air Force myself.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Inserting A Survey File

Jun 29, 2012

We have a template file for all of our engineering drawings.  When we receive the topo from our survey department we insert the  topo (as a block) into our Eng. dwg. Our Survey  dept just did their first topo using 2012 and survey figures.  When we try to insert the dwg the system crashes.  I can XML the surface into the drawing, but I don't get the line work.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Survey Figures Don't Match Survey Points

May 3, 2012

here's my process:

1- Import the asc file into my drawing.

2- Convert the asc file to a FBK file

3- Import my FBK file.  The survey figure linework generated doesn't overlay my previously imported asc file.  I checked the FBK file and the coord's match the asc file.  I'm confused as to why the survey figures don't overlay the survey points from the asc file, since the coords match in both?  The survey figures are all shifted .7' and 54deg. from the points.  The elevations are all good on the survey figures, as they match the survey points.

So my quick fix is to explode the survey figures, since I don't really need them for what I'm doing, and then select all the 3d polylines and move them to them to an appropriate survey point.  Everything then looks fine and I can get the job done.

However, I would like some insight as to why this might be happening.  It's strange that the FBK and asc coordinates match, but the survey figures aren't lying over them.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Survey Data From A File Into The Drawing

Jul 18, 2012

I imported survey data from a file into the drawing and created a surface from the points and figures. No problem. Engineer wanted to change the datum from assumed to known. At this point all figures have been copied to a new layer flattened and changed to 2D polylines in order to hatch. Then the figures reimported. I raised all the points with the edit datum and raised the figures with edit survey figures. Surface was adjusted and tweaked. Everything was fine. I open the drawing and all the figures are back at assumed datum and the points are on the right datum. Now when I tweak the surface it uses the bogus elevations from the figures.  How can I get my figures to save the adjusted elevations?

VideoStudio :: Make Edited Video Smaller File Size?

Jun 25, 2011

how to make my edited mp4 video files smaller so that They upload and download much quicker. I did some editing to some MPEG-4 video files and when I was finished I found out that the file sizes of each video blew up to huge numbers. During the editing I did add some transitions and .MPEG photo images. I didn't think that the video size would grow to that amount. I really would like to keep the MPEG-4 format for the convenience to the viewer. I just need to have it in the smallest file size possible. how I can get my "MP4 H264 - MPEG-4 AVC Resolution 640x480" videos to an acceptable file size?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Survey Database Settings Change On Import Of FBK File

Nov 20, 2013

Recently we have discovered a problem (bug?) with the survey database. We usually import our field data from our Trimble controllers into the survey database (SDB) through Trimble Link. We have been very careful to get all the survey database settings right, so that the data comes through correctly and have been successful up until the last few weeks. We find this a good workflow, where we are able to make edits to our field data (change target heights etc) easily in the SDB and comparisons with Trimble Business Center and direct output on-screen in the controller confirm that our data is reliable. We often have both GPS (long Network RTK vectors from the nearest network base station) and total station observations in the same file.

The issue is that, as the fbk file is imported, the survey database settings change to reflect the content of the fbk file. The "Atmospheric conditions" and "Curvature and Refraction" settings, which I have purposely left unticked (the controller applies these corrections), become ticked. This throws out our heights, especially on the long GPS lines.

We do have the option for a workaround, which involves going back into the Edit Survey Database Settings after import and updating the data in the sdb, but this is clumsy.

This seems to be similar to the issue that was discussed here.  However, we have only just encountered this issue in the past month or two, which coincides with when we rolled out C3D 2012 Service Pack 4 across the office. We are planning on implementing 2014 soon, so I have tried it out on 2014 as well, with the same result.

Is this something that others are dealing with too? Perhaps there's some sneaky setting somewhere that I haven't found which locks down the SDB settings preventing them from being changed on import? Otherwise, I think this is a bug.

I am also bracing myself for some comments regarding the dangers of using GPS in the SDB!

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 Architecture :: Make Horizontal Sections From Several Smaller Areas Containing Both Files?

May 11, 2012

I have xref-ed two .dwg files into my drawing. They are on top of each other, and now I want to make horizontal sections from several smaller areas containing both files. However, when I do, all lines turn olive green and I loose the original layer structure (in the section, that is, not the original x-ref).

Is there a way to make these sections and keep the original layers in the sections? I'd rather not use xclip.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Make Dimension Get Bigger And Smaller As Scale Drawing?

Mar 20, 2012

How to make the dimension get bigger and smaller as we “scale” the drawing?

For example, the drawing in the screenshot below is scaled by 0.5 but that didn’t affect the “size” of the dimension (height of the text, extension lines, …).

Is there a way to get the dimension line affected as we scale the drawing such that the “dimension text” and the “extension line” are increased/ decreased with the scale factor?

GIMP :: How To Make Text Smaller

Sep 29, 2011

I am currently working on making a map out of a satellite image. I am stuck trying to figure out how to get text to be small enough to be legible. I have cropped and resized the original image, It is 137x224 @ 72ppi. I want the text smaller, I think I cant get enough definition because the pixels are huge, text size 7 and under becomes like 6 squares per letter and there is no definition.

The same effect is keeping me from getting well defined and sharp lines. I try to stroke a path and the line looks like a row of squares instead of a line.

Revit :: How To Make Dimension Text Smaller

Nov 29, 2007

I would like to make the dimension text smaller so that the information doesn't become so crowded. I notice that the dimensions are written like 12' - 10 3/4", with a space between the ' and the - and a space between the - and the 10, rather than 12'-10 3/4", like an old-fashioned person like me would write. Is there a way to control that? I looked into the dimension edit dialog box & couldn't see a way. AutoCAD writes them like I like.

Illustrator :: Make Smaller Swatches In 3 Different Percentages?

Jan 14, 2013

I'm making a swatchbook (Pantone ® style), with a large 100% swatch and three smaller ones (5%,25% and 50% ink.). Right now I've got a 7x7 grid with all the swatches as I want (see screenshot), however the other 26 other pages only have the 100% swatch. Is there an 'automated' way I can make the smaller swatches in the 3 different percentages?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Getting TDS RAW Survey Attributes Into It?

Dec 15, 2010

We process survey data using Attributes to add extra intelligence and reduce errors.

For example, when shooting trees, the RAW file will contain something like this:

SS,OP 50,FP1299,AR308.2057,ZE91.0918,SD128.282,--TREE

or when shooting a street sign:

SS,OP 50,FP1437,AR324.1135,ZE91.4728,SD123.235,--SIGN

The FC code sets up that attribute information will follow for the point number indicated by PN and the FN is basically explaining the name of the feature type. On the collector, this is all menu driven, making for few data entry errors.

The AT codes list the attributes name TN and then the TV reports its value.

Is there a way to preserve these attributes and their data when processing them into an FBK? Ideally, they would need to become part of a point description.

When processing this for that "other" CADD package, I am able to use these values in building labels for my survey points.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating EG From Survey?

Mar 15, 2013

I was curious what the basic workflow is for creating an EG from a survey.  The catch is that we don't have a point file or elevated points on the drawing.  The drawing is just that a drawing with spot elevations and linework.  The lot is 100' long and 30' wide.  An existing house takes up most of the lot with a street on the front and back.  The idea is to try making a grading plan after I figure this first part out.  Where would I begin with something like this to figure out the next step of grading a small lot?

GIMP :: Pixelation Occurs When Make Images Smaller?

Jul 11, 2011

I am making an image smaller (from 1200 pixels wide to 700), and no matter what I try it always turns out pixelated. I hate it! I just want the size of the image to get smaller without compromising the quality of said image. Here's what I've tried:

- Saving to different formats before resizing (TIF, PNG, etc)

- Changing the X and Y resolution from 150, to 300, even 900 before resizing. It seems to have no effect.

- Changing the interpolation from cubic to the others (the others ones all look worse)

I am at a loss! I am using "image/scale image" to resize, by the way. And the original image was a 1200-wide TIF. I don't see why I'm not able to increase the number of pixels while making the image smaller to maintain the integrity of the original image.
