AutoCAD Map 3D :: Library Not Showing All Of Coordinate Systems

Jul 19, 2012

I am using Civil 3D 2012 with SP1. When I use data connect and attempt to edit the coordinate system the Coordinate System Library that pops up only shows 5 No Datum coordinate systems. The Datum box under Show is uncheck, unfortunately it is also greyed out and uncheckable. How do I get this box checked?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Change Original Coordinate Systems

Mar 9, 2012

 Installation of Autocad Map 2012 provides a list of thousands of coordinate systems, datums, geodetic transformations, etc.. but I see that the system doesn't allows editing (they are read-only) and always I have to create new systems, new datums ..Is there any way to make it editable?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Using Multiple Coordinate Systems At Once

Jul 14, 2012

I'm finding myself on more and more sites that use multiple coordinate systems and height datums.

We have 3 on this job. One is the MGA zone 50 GDA94, another is just an offset of this and the third is a strange local grid with offsets and rotations.

We have Excel spreadsheets that can convert between the systems, but that requires several extra steps per point.

Is it possible to define each coordinate system in one drawing so that I could select which system I wanted to use, input the points and then select the main coordinate system so it converts the coordinates directly? It would mean less steps and I would have greater confidence in this system. 

We have the parameters for all systems.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Multiple Coordinate Systems / Units?

Jul 17, 2012

I'm enlisted in the United States Air Force and am working with the Navy for topo surveys.  I'm bringing my information into AutoCAD Map 3D 2010 and using the coordinate system UTM84-4N.  I can't figure out why when I bring in my survey .dwg, all of the points are in the middle of the ocean. 

I've tried to manually project the coordinate systems onto each file and reference them.  I've changed units to meters.  I've copied with base point 0,0 and pasted as the same.  I've even opened a fresh file, gave that a projection, imported the drawing from "Map Explorer" and queried "ALL" and redrew the file and still nothing.  I've checked the Geo-Markers and they're obviously off.  Is there a way to match them and have it scaled properly?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Drawing In Coordinate Systems

Nov 6, 2012

If I set up my Civil 3D drawing in some known coordinate system, e.g. State Plane, in the "drawing settings", can I then toggle my drawing into other known systems, e.g. UTM, by changing the coordinate system under "drawing settings"?

If not, how are the coordinate settings used?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data And Different Coordinate Systems

Aug 1, 2012

I have a problem with different coordinate systems. I have a drawing in old Finnish coordinate system (KKJ, kaista 4) and I have a point file, which is made in ETRS-GK29 coordinate system. When I try to transfer the points to the drawing, the points will land way off from the drawing or I get this error message "Coordinate transformation from ETRF89.FinlandGK-29 to FINL-KKJ4 failed for point located at {29511662.554000,6948599.365000}. This usually indicates the point falls outside the boundaries of the destination coordinate system". I have checked and the point {29511662.554000,6948599.365000} should be over the drawing.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Disappearing Coordinate Systems

Jul 9, 2012

My Civil 3D 2012 coordinate systems normally displayed on the units and zone tab of the drawing settings have disappeared.  On existing drawings the coordinate system code is still displayed.  On new drawings the code appears as a symbol - a period or a comma or something.  I can enter the coordinate system code and the program recognizes it.

My Civil 3D 2011 coordinate systems display as expected.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Default Sketch Coordinate Systems?

Jan 30, 2012

Is there a way to set Inventor so that the sketch origin defaults to the part origin?  I find it very frustrating that it always defaults to some random corner of the part's body.  It can screw up a part if you decide later on to modify the part such that you eliminate the point to which a coordinate system was defined.  Also, when copying and pasting a sketch to new work planes it can be a pain to figure out which point is the origin of the orignal sketch if the pasted sketch is misaligned. 

I know you can edit the coordinate system after a sketch is created, but I'd prefer not to have to rememember to do that with every sketch.

This was brought up about 6 years ago and there was no formal resolution


In the second-to-last post John-IV8SP1mentions an option under 'Application Options' for an older version of AI, but I cannot find it in the 2012 applicaton options.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Image Coordinate Systems Transformation And Rotation?

Apr 1, 2010

I have some UTM images that I need to convert to State Plane. If I import them into map with raster design and export them to the state plane coordinate system, they work just fine, but I can't figure out a way to get rid of the black wedge that it makes along the edges of images.

If I query them in using map I can transform the coordinate system, but then every time I open the drawing it takes like 5 minutes just to open.

What has everyone else done to use multiple images in a drawing and transform or convert the coordinate system of the images?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: How To Create Multiple Unique Coordinate Systems

May 17, 2011

A - Autodesk will fix them in a timely fashion during this release - Not holding my breath here

B - Others won't spend hours trying to figure it out.

In my case, I need to create multiple unique coordinate systems called Low Distortion Projections (Google it for explanation.)

Here are the problems identified so far with the 2012 version of the Coordinate Library

Coordinate System Categories

1 - The regional 'containers' that hold coordinate systems definitions. You cannot create an empty container. It requires at least 1 coordinate system definition to be created. When creating a container put an arbitrary coordinate system definition in. This assists with item 2b.

Coordinate System Definitions

2a - Getting started - There is no provision to just select an existing datum or ellipsoid. One must 'create' a new definition that may vary in name only. The vast majority of us using their products will not actually create new ellipsoids or datums just utilizing them as the basis for other projections.

2b - Creating definition - Continuing the definition process the definition needs to be placed in a coordinate system category. Due to the problems identified in item 1 this creates a circular error. The workaround being item 1 rather than creating multiple definitions in the wrong container then going back to fix them.

2c - Scale Reduction - This should be renamed to Scale Factor to fit with the rest of the known world as the value can be greater or less than unity (1.000000) In my case the values all happen to be something greater than 1. While on this subject, the autodesk programmers set this to do something totally unexpected. No matter what you set the value to, if you save and reedit the projection value will be displayed as '1'

2d - Missing Projection definition form data - I went through the projection definitions and found the following projection types were missing their fields in the form:

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Map Wspace Coordinate Systems Missing

Jan 8, 2012

Got a new Windows 764 bit computer. Installed 2012.  Using the Map Wspace to attach jpegs.  I connect to the image and go to edit the coordinate system.  On the new computer, I only have a half dozen coordinate systems, none of which are PAN83.

I go to my old XP pro 32 bit computer and the whole list of coordinate systems comes up.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Unable To Change Coordinate Systems While Importing Points

Nov 3, 2012

I want to know why I can't change coordinate of points while importing points from Points menu?

I created new file, assigned any coordinate system to the model. Opened Import points windows there, created new file format which there I assigned Coordinate zone transform to the coordinate system of the text file and imported my text file. But the coordinates of points didn't changed or transformed. When I do it by Survey in Toolspace its works good. I want to know whether I did any wrong or it is problem of software.

I use AutoCADCivil 2013 64 bit in Windows 7 64 bit!

AutoCAD Inventor :: Material Library Not Showing Up?

Oct 7, 2013

I am using inventor 2012 but the material library is not loading.Then i go to the Manage> Styles Editor> and clieck on color or material it only gives me the option of defualt.

The drop down box in the top right is greyed out so i cannot change this either.

It works fine on another PC just not mine.I have downloaded the material pack from the website also.

I have also changed the hardware settings. I have tried all 3 hardware settings and it makes no differance.

Running windows 7 x64, 8 gigs of ram 3.4 quad core, 128gig SSD.

Everything is up to date.When i installed the material library download the material library was working, but when i opened a file the material library went back to how it was above.

The files i am using are from models i made in inventor 2010, but there is no problem on another PC i use.

Revit :: Material Library Not Showing Up

Feb 11, 2014

I am using Revit 2013 and have built a material library for the company I work for. It has been working fine up until about an hour ago. Now when I try to open up the material library I created it says "No assets in this library". I can't figure out why there is nothing there. And I don't want to have to recreate all my materials I already created! I can still find the file in my folders and it says theres 3930 KB of information in the file. I included a picture of what my Assest Editor and Asset Browser show when I try to open my library.

Lightroom :: Images Not Showing In Library Mode After Import

Mar 17, 2014

Our problem with Lightroom is this: After inporting images, they do not show in the library mode. The tree view shows first image of the folder, but the library preview does not open.- Probllem is persistant and any new images after 3 weeks are not showing up.- problem is resistant, we upgraded from 5.0 to 5.3, but problem is consistant.
System specs: Generic computer, 8gb memory, windows 7 ultimate 64bits.c: (SSD) houses lightroom, windows & catalogue files.d: houses inport with Picasa files.p: Container of accepted and to be edited image f
General process of images: Import with picasa of images, verification of image quality and rejecting failures.After all images are done, use of syncredibles program to copy new files not yet on the picasa library folder. This basicly checks and moves pictures that are currently on drive D: but are not yet on drive P. After new files are transferred, then picasa will re-import with add function on import from its own folders.
Directory structure: c:program files adobelightroom 5.3  (main proigram)c:uusi kansiolightroom caltalogued:kuvat (picasa image store)
p:kuvat (lightroom image store)
The divasion of d: and P: driwe is so that picasa will not see images that arte on Lightroom and vice versa.are on D: & P started to get "read obn
We have tried to study this problem, and first we notised that folders that houses images on both driwes, started to receve "read only" atrribute. Even tho we cleared this with user restrictions (folder security) the imported images still refuse to load the previews.Catalogue contains over 30 000 raw images.
We are starting to shoot blanks here. In short, the tree view shows first image of the folder, images are present in the system, but when you click the tree view to open up the folder, no images will refresh to center view of the screen. If pressed couple of times screen will go white, and crash LR.We have tried to "find missing files" and "folder synchronication.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Length In Routed Systems

Mar 28, 2013

In an attempt to change the unit display on a CC item (from decimal inches to fractional), I came across what, to me, is an issue.  In the CC I set the length on a pipe conduit part to a custom column, with the range at .001 - 240 inches.  I modified my filename column so it was a string that included the length value at the end. (ie Spool x length). 

If I place from CC, as custom, a piece of this conduit, the filename does exactly what I expected.  If I specify 24 in the length box in the CC dialog, my filename comes in as "spool x 24"... (or to that effect, I'm paraphrasing).  If I do the same thing within the context of a pipe run in that same assembly... the filename, even though I chose place from CC, as custom, and specified a length, comes in as "spool x .001".  Every time.  And also, any spool pieces generated as a result of populating a route.  I expect the filename there to be different as tube & pipe has it's own rules for naming spools... but the description field still generates as "spool x .001". 

So, it would appear that the column parameters set in the CC, do not apply at all in Routed Systems?  I may have to put this in the idea station... wish I had found it last year, now I'll have to wait another year for apotential fix.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Planetary / Cyclical Gear Systems

Apr 19, 2013

I'm trying to create a few sets of planetary gears and I'm running up against a wall here.

Both sets, for simplicity, need 1:4 ratios which makes the planet and sun gears the same size. I was using 20 teeth for the planets/sun and 60 teeth for the ring which based on my understanding of the ratios, should work. My problem arises when I attempt to get all of these gears(sun, four planets, and the ring) to mesh and rotate.

I can't figure out how to make sets of more than two gears using the Spur Gear tool. When I make the other gears on their own and add them to the system, they don't inherently mesh and pass through each other. Obviously I'm missing something here because I clearly need more than a two gear system.

As a side question, is there a method(Derived Parts, maybe?) through which I can add to a gear made with the Spur Gear tool to create a new part that will still function as a proper gear?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Routed Systems Styles Disappeared

Jan 10, 2014

We are on 2014 professional and have been using routed systems for over a year now. One of our guys ran two routes over the course of a couple weeks with no problem.  He went to create a new route yesterday and all of the styles are gone (both default and custom). If he goes into the two previously created the style that is used is there, but any other styles are not. What could have changed? I tried deleting the job project and creating it again to verify all the paths. Seems like everyone else's machines are running routed systems fine so I don't think it's a network issue.
