AutoCAD Inventor :: Internal Name For Import Style Command (in Style Editor)

Sep 16, 2013

I read that it's not possible to import a style (styxml file) into the style editor through the API, there is no dedicated command.

However I'm wondering if there's a a way to have the internal name corresponding to the button as we can do for the ribbon buttons (there's a sample code which does this).

So is it possible ot get the internal name of a button inside a dialog box (style editor here) or is it really hopeless to think I can import a style with a macro ?

By the way, that would be for Inventor 2009.

AutoCad :: Monochrome Plot Style And Plotting To PDF

Aug 9, 2011

I am using the monochrome plot style and plotting to PDF. My text looks great in the Plot Preview, but once actually hit 'Plot' the line weight of my text and dimensions appears super thick and heavy. They are also assigned to the lightest line weight in the layer property manager.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Plotting An Airfoil In 2012?

Jan 15, 2012

I need to be able to import the airfoil geometry of a NACA 2412 airfoil.  I know how to get the XY coordinates but I don't know how to import these points (as a .txt file?) into ACAD.  What function would I use?  Spline?  If so how do I get it to draw all the points I have?  I need to then extrude the shape to be able to mill airfoil sections...that part I can figure out....just need to import the points to get a nice curve.

AutoCAD Architecture :: Plotting To PDF In 2011 And 2012?

May 23, 2011

After I plot to pdf, I get an error message: You do not have a PDF viewing application installed. Go to the internet and dowload a pdf viewer. The problem is that Acrobat Reader X is installed on my computer. I saw the thread about Reader X having spooling issues, so I reinstalled Acrobat Reader 9. Still get the same message.I can go to the file afterwards and open it, despite this message, but it is supposed to open from Architecture after it is plotted and it won't do that.

AutoCAD 2010 :: 2012 Crashing After Plotting

Oct 4, 2011

My company just got new computers, I've loaded 2012 SP1 and our lisp comands on every machine.  After a plot, when someone goes to save and close the drawing, AutoCAD crashes.  It does not matter which plot device is used, the result is the same.  This includes the plot devices included in AutoCAD.  I have reinstalled autocad on one machine, no lisp commands, same result.  I have already tried some of the fixes proposed in other threads, nothing has worked.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Plotting To Pdf With Shadows And No Face Style

Jun 19, 2013

I am creating a 3D model and have my selected view within a viewport on layout space.

My prefered visual style for the model is with no face style (i.e only isolines visible) with full shadows on. This looks perfect on layout space.

When plotting to pdf - it looks nothing like as shown despite setting the viewport shade style to as displayed or the selected visual style and the shadows don;t show.

As the pdf option is not providing the desired output. Is there something I am doing wrong or is there a way to render the model whilst showing no face style/material?

AutoCad :: Plotting Edit Plot Style In Layers?

Aug 1, 2011

I'm trying to revise my template that I use as a base for all drawings. I would like to have layer colors in models space, and alter the plot style for the individual layers. For example, My ctb is grayscale, and generally the prints work fine. However, I'd like to set individual layers to display as the layer color yet print black. Othere I'd like to display in colour but print in the grays of the grayscale. However, in the layer manager the plot style is grayed out and I can't change it.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Text Plotting Outside Viewport In 2013 But Not In 2012?

Oct 3, 2012

I am currently running map 3d 2012 and my co-worker is running 2013. When she plots in paperspace, there is text that gets plotted that is outside of her viewport. When I open  up the drawing on my computer, it plots perfectly. I attached a clip of it, the thick black is our drawing border, the viewport is where the color stops.

AutoCAD LT :: Plotting Line Weight Defined By CTB Plot Style

Feb 27, 2008

I'm trying to plot a line weight defined by a CTB Plot Style, but the weight will not show in AutoCAD or print.

Here's what I've done;

-Set the line weight in the Plot Style Table Editor, Color 9 @ 0.40mm. Grayscale has been turned on.(All other settings have been left as default)
-Tried various combos like;
-selecting "Display plot styles" & "Plot with Plot Styles" in pg setup
-selecting the "Plot object lineweights". (It also turns off "plot with plot styles" and prints in color (though grayscale is on)
-LWDISPLAY has bee turned on
-Neither model or paper space reflects the change.
-Line types work fine
-Changing the same line thru the Properties Manager does the trick, but I would like to set it up properly thru the Plot Style

Back Ground Info;
-Both the dwg file and Plot Style are new and created from scratch.

If it was a printer issue, it would still show in AutoCAD correctly, right? I've searched various help tools, but seem to be going in circles.

AutoCad :: Plotting In Conceptual Visual Style - Poor Quality

Nov 6, 2013

I have tried this on 2 different machines which are running AutoCAD 2012 & 2014.

The 1st image below was taken from the print preview and shows a Conceptual & Hidden view. Why they come out blocky?

The 2nd image was taken from a screen shot which looks ok.

The 3rd image shows my print settings which created the print preview.

I have tried reducing the quality in the shaded viewport options section but it doesn’t really work.

AutoCAD Architecture :: Plotting Files With PDF Xref Directly From 2012?

Aug 28, 2012

problem when plotting files that have PDF images attached to them and are viewed through a viewport.  When plotting, the publishing bar fills up but then stays filled and doesnt disappear.  At this point AutoCAD is locked up and I see the file starts spooling.  I have several PDF files attached that amount to no more than 500 kb, however, when spooling it racks up to 30mb before in sends it off to the plotter and it takes a very lenghtly wait (up to 60 min).  Eventually it plots and sometimes it doesn't plot at all.  After a while if I try cancelling the plot, it will start plotting but only half of the page and after that the entire operating system will lockup.  We have several machines (6) and 2 plotters in a network and the plotters are shared.  Is there a better and faster way to work with PDF xrefs?  Could this be a networking problem instead of AutoCAD?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Parcel Settings Not Plotting Correctly In 2012

Dec 31, 2012

I either have bad settings or have found a bug in 2012 when plotting parcels.

I have a P-drain Parcel setting for major drainage areas - I set the display to the C-PROP-BNDY layer which seems to be OOB for the entire 'property'.  I create the parcels from poly lines on the P-DRAIN-AREA layer.

The parcels go to the C-PROP layer.  My problem is that I can't seem to get the property lines to plot.  I try to set C-PROP-BNDY to the correct color, yet when I plot, the lines don't show.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2012 Scaling Error When Plotting Profiles

Apr 23, 2012

When plotting profile plan sheets, there is an error in the scaling of the grids.  I can not seem to figure out why the plotter is not plotting correctly.  I did try creating a pdf of the plan sheet and plotting, but still have the same scale error.  It starts to get off scale after about 500 feet, so the error in scale is small, but still there.  It is off by about 2 or 3 feet at 500 feet on the profile grid.

AutoCAD 2010 :: True View 2012 Plotting To PDF Background Color

Nov 8, 2012

When I plot to paper from TV2012, I'm good with monochrome - black lines, white background - awesome.

I would *like*, however, to plot a few things to PDF, but retain the view I have on my display - I.E., lines/labels of various colors and a BLACK background.  I've been poking around for a bit, and if there's a way to make that setting, I'm no finding it.  Everything I try has gotten me colored lines/labels on a white background.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: In 2012 While Plotting PDF Not Creating In Landscape Format

Jan 1, 2014

On PC_71, While ploting(creating the pdf via autocad) the pdf,its everytime coming in portait format but we want in landscape format.

On PC_71, if we create the pdf of any document by our Adobe pdf printer PRT13 then its creating pdf properly for both portait and landscape format . But for any autocad drawing file , the pdf printer PRT13 is not creating in landscape format.

I also cross-checked all plot setting with other proper working PC , its same then also its behave differently.

And if we create pdf on any other PC then its creating the pdf properly for any drawing but not on PC_71.

Also 1 more typical point I noticed that if we delete any pdf file from PC_71, then after refreshing its again appeared on same location.

Note - We are using:

Software :  Autocad 2012-64Bit , Naviswork 2013 , Inventor Ultimate 2014-64 Bit , Bentley Autoplant V8i - SS4 version : ,MS-Office 2010 - 64 Bit.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2012 - Text Style Changing

Feb 11, 2013

I am using Civil 3D 2012 and seem to have a reoccurring problem with the text styles changing. At the start of the day, I will open my drawing and find that my text style has changed and I am not sure what is causing this. I check my text styles and none of my settings has change nor has the text style. Nothing seems to fix the problem other than running a repair of the system.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Style Update (or Style Update Check) Upon Open Of A Drawing?

Nov 21, 2013

I am wondering if it is possible to do a style update (or style update check) upon open of a drawing? 

The example would be that I have stuff made from way back that the colors/dimension sytles ect dont match the current standard and upon opening a file where they are not current, it would either prompt to update immediatly OR update automatically with no prompting (preferred method).

I am doing a massive amount of updates from old files recently and to save myself 1 - 3 clicks per drawing would be wonderful.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Drawing Disappears After Opening Second Drawing In 3D 2012?

Mar 23, 2013

I have two drawings A and B. I work in A and I need some design elements from B.

When I open the drawing B everything I have in drawing A disappeared. I refer to all elements of design (blocks, lines, polylines, etc.).

After studying the issue have concluded that the design of all elements were automatically isolated. Right click> Isolate> End Object Isolation and everything reappears in drawing A.

I mention that I installed Autocad Map 3D 2012 x64 on Windows 7 x64 and work in Map Classic Workspace using the same coordinate system in both drawings.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2012 Surface Style Set User Slope Ranges

I can't find the spot to set user slope ranges in the setting tab.

I can find setting number of ranges with three options of minimal use.

This used to be so simple in LDD.

The examples I have seen for this function all show odd ranges of limited value.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2012 Fusion Error - Realistic Visual Style

Apr 26, 2011

I get the following error when I try to launch Fusion from within Inventor (or on it's own):

The application is unavailable. There was an error while initializing the graphics subsystem.  This is likely due to one or more of the following:  your graphics driver is not configured for "True Color", there was a problem installing the application, the application installation was damaged, or some other problem with the graphics hardware and drivers or the configuration of the application.  More detailed information may be included below.

Also, when I try to switch to Realistic Visual Style, it will not allow me to. When I go into Application Options, Hardware, and try to set it for Quality it always goes back to Compatibility.
