AutoCAD LT :: Linework To Black And Be Able To Have Shaded Areas

Sep 22, 2011

I have been trying to print to my local windows printer (monochrome laser) and to a pdf file but cannot seem to get all of my lines black.  Different colors, by layers, produce a greyscale arrangement of linework.  I have tried changing the plotstyles to the various available plotstyles:  Monochrome.stb, Monochrome.ctb and Autodesk-MONO.stb, but have not had any success.  All are printing the same.

Ideally I would like to set most linework to black and be able to have shaded areas and some linework in a grey tone when needed.

Photoshop :: CS5 / Colours Are Being Over Saturated In Shaded Areas And Less Saturated In Light Areas

May 8, 2012

Colours are being over saturated in shaded areas and less saturated in light areas when filled over an aeea. The colours need to remain the same saturation level when darkened or lightened. Is a setting affecting the saturation levels?

GIMP :: Aerial Photo Of Island - Make Water Areas Black And Land Areas White

Jan 29, 2013

In the image below I have an aerial photo of an Island. I need to make it so as water areas are black and land areas are white (not greyscale) almost like a silhouette. My first plan was to draw round the island with a black paint brush and then use the "bucket fill" with a suitable threshold to fill all of the areas up to the black outline with black, however this doesn't work as the bucket fill either breaks through the black line or when I reduce the threshold, doesn't color the water areas solidly.

3ds Max :: While In Shaded Mode - Viewports Fade To Black

Jan 8, 2013

I am evaluating 3DSMax 2013 and my last version of Max was 6. When I turn my viewports to shaded, the viewports fade to black. The objects and everything are still there, and it seems like there is no light source. If I move an object around, the viewport lights back up, yet as soon as I am done moving it, it fades to black again. Is this a preference setting I have missed or something?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Publish To DWF Results In Large Black Areas

Mar 16, 2012

I have a drawing with multiple layouts which is of a road plan and profile in 2 view ports.

When I publish the multiple drawings to DWF the 2nd viewport with the profile in it is completely black, but when I plot to DWF a single layout, it works fine which I don't understand. Surely the publish command publishes to DWF with the same settings as when you do a single plot to DWF, no?.

I have attached an example of the publish result.

Photoshop :: Black Pixelated Areas In Photos

Apr 12, 2013

I just purchased a new computer which is running Windows 7 and has an AMD Radeon graphics card. I loaded my Photoshop CS4 on this new computer.  I previously had CS4 loaded on a Dell Inspiration laptop that died.  I never had any problems with CS4 on my laptop.  I have always used a working color profile of sRGB IEC61966-2.1 as that is the color profile that my digital camera uses. Now when I open photos in CS4 using this color profile, there are black pixelated areas on many of the photos.  I can get rid of this in two ways, 1. by dropping the saturation down to around -8 or 2.  changing my working space profile to Adobe RGB 1998 and then converting the documents color profile to the working space. I have to convert every photo that I bring in to Photoshop.Is the graphics card not compatible with CS4?

Illustrator :: Change JPG File To Vector And Change Black Linework To Red Using CS5?

Jun 28, 2012

Below is a .jpg copy of the Vitruvian Man that I bought on I would like to get rid of the gold background and keep the black line work. I would like what was the gold background to be transparent. I would like to convert this .jpg to a vector file using Adobe Illustrator CS5. To do this I assume I somehow use the Live Trace feature but I'm not exactly sure how.
I would then like to be able to select the black linework and change it to red. Does this mean I need to somehow convert the drawing into a collection of indivdual paths and anchor points? When I've used Live Trace before, I had the tolerance set to about 45 and Simple Trace. This indeed got rid of the gold background but gave me no individual paths or points I could select and change the color of. The only thing I could select was the image as a whole, not individual points or paths. It was the entire image within a box. This occurred whether I used the black arrow tool (Selection tool ) or the white arrow tool (Direct selection tool). If no, then how could I change the black linework to red?

Photoshop :: Image With Gradient Gets Black Spots All In Dark Areas

Mar 14, 2013

I am having a huge issue with Photoshop CS5.5. The gradients and colors are acting crazy. When I bring in a image with a gradient it gets black spots all in the dark areas. Even when I use the default gradient selection this is what happens. When I bring in a picture that should have a white background it turns to black. Now apparently, when I save it out as a JPEG saves correctly without the black line or messed up gradients. So it seems to only be an issue when I am working in Photoshop, the gradients appear messed up. What is wrong with my display?

Whenever I drag an image off the web into Photoshop it seems like some colors gets pixels, large black areas inside the image. This only occurs in 8-bit mode, when I turn the image to 32-bit it show all colors correctly. But in 32-bit mode I cannot save to web. If I finish the image in 32-bit and then downgrade it to 8-bit, the black parts return.

AutoCAD LT :: Linework Not Plotting

Nov 7, 2012

Some of my linework is not plotting.  This only happens on one of my .dwg files (that I can tell), and only on certain layers.  Recently drawn linework only on a few layers simply does not show up on preview or on hard copy, regardless of which printer I print to or which configuration I use.  It's not a computer issue because the same issue happens if I open the file on a different computer.  All layers are thawed, on and set to print. 

However, if I Xref the file into a new drawing, then the linework prints.  Here is a copy of the error message I receive.

3ds Max :: Linked AutoCAD Linework Has Too Many Vertices

Jan 9, 2013

I'm having an issue whenever I link an AutoCAD dwg. I model everything in Max but use AutoCAD line-work as a guide. As of Max 2013, when I do this, I notice that every line linked is divided into six segments. I tried re-loading the linked file setting curve steps to "0" but still no change.

The linking goes well, no problems at all neither at first nor at re-loading time, but it is quite annoying to have all these extra vertices when I'm modelling over the CAD lines.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Section Linework SHP File

I could download a .shp file that contains the section linework for indiana in state plane Coordinates? I am not looking for perfect coordinates, just graphically pleasing. I would like to start a database of the section corners we have recovered and I think it would be neat to have the whole state.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Using Description Keys With Linework?

Jul 18, 2013

I currently use Leica Viva Smartworks for surveying and it captures the linework codes in its own field, so when I export my CSV file my Descrition comes on with the feature code but the linework code is another field. Is their a way that using the Format field in the description Key that I can get the Full description field to read something like "V-DOMW-PIPE B", which would pull the feature code from the raw descrition field and the begin line code from the Linework field.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Auto-Linework Alternative?

Jul 24, 2012

I am currently using a FBK to run my auto-linework.  I am having a problem generating curves, closing lines, etc...  Everything works fine unitl I hit a curve or try to close a line.  I have tried many different point code variations and the only one that worked on curves was a "BC1 BC, BC1 EC".  Problem is I need multiple points on a curve to pick up laydowns, PVI's, etc...  I tried the "OC", no "OC".......just about every variation I could think of to no avail.  Is there an alternative to a FBK that works better?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Convert 3D Face To Linework

I received a 3D drawing but only need linework from it.  I have flattened it out so I am able to export the linework. The problem is when I import the drawing into another software (Trimble Business Center), the lines are still 3D face and am not able to treat it like linework. Is there a way to convert a 3D face into line or polyline in C3D?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Extract Linework From Corridor

Jan 14, 2013

What's the best workflow to extract the linework from a corridor - I need the linework as 3D polys for export to another modelling system?I have tried the extract feature line from corridor but it is incredibly tedious so I have lately done the following

1 Rebuild Corridors and Save file.
2 Select Corridor, Isolate and Explode twice.
3 Select all the lines and JOIN which then creates 3D polylines.
4 Wblock the 3D polylines.
5. DO NOT RESAVE...!!!

Is there a better way?

AutoCAD Architecture :: Xref Hides New Linework

All I want to do is trace on top of an x-ref elevation. The x ref hides all my new lines so I cannot see what I've just drawn. Even the display order has no effect, not that I want to use the display order every time I draw a line. I just want my new black lines to show up on top of the faded xref image.

AutoCAD Architecture :: 2D Section Linework Missing?

Jun 8, 2011

I'm working with Architecture 2011 and when I draw a 2D section, the defining line is missing for the structural members cut by the section. The hatching displays fine but the line around the material isn't there.

Under the material definitions I've got the 2d section / elevation linework turned on and under the elevation style I've got the defining line turned on and set to by material.

The defining line will come on if I turn on the inner and outer shrinkwrap but then it's color is defined either by layer or by color in which case it's all the same color and i have to manually edit the linework to change the color.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Description Key Set With Linework Coding

Apr 22, 2013

We are using the linework coding to process our figures and the survey .txt file provided to me uses codes to begin lines with "+" & "-".  For example, driveways are coded + DR1 for begin and - DR1 to end the line. The linework process works fine, its when I go to display the point in the description keys that are causing me problems.  All the points that are in between the begin and end points display to the appropriate style because they are coded as DR*. The begin and end do not display correctly as the + & - isn't being recognized in the description key. I tried many alternate ways such as *DR*, + DR*, - DR*, with nothing working.

Is there a different format I need to be using?   There are way to many points to go thru to move the + & - behind the code.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: TXT Files - Automated Linework

Dec 13, 2011

We are now working in civil 3D 2011, and have started using the .txt files now instead of the fieldbooks of the past. I have created a Description key set, along with a figure prefix database and a linework code set. everything works fine as long as the field crews use EP1, EP,2 EP3, ETC.. But we would really like to utilize the Begin and End function of this. I have unchecked the box that says Automatic begin on figure prefix match, but still no luck. I have also checked the linework code set and it all looks good <Space> delimiter etc..
