AutoCAD Map 3D :: Querying Object Data Returns All Objects

Mar 5, 2012

I have a drawing with a bunch of polylines with object data attached. The polylines represent roads, and among the object data is a road number. A typical road number might be "2000" and a road without a number assigned yet would be "0"

I am trying to run a query that pull out just the objects where the road number field is 0. If I try to query based on object data where the field = 0, I get returned all of the polylines whether the field is 0 or not. If I query with "2000", I get returned just the single road with that number as expected.

I've tried several different ways to make this work and I'm not sure what is wrong. I have tried with the number as integers, and doing field = 0, field <= 0, field < 1 and that didn't work, so then I converted it over to a character field and have tried field = 0 and field = "0" - nothing seems to work. Is there something with the field being zero that is causing issues and is there a way to make this work?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Querying Multiple SDF Files At Once?

Apr 11, 2011

I have two SDF files, one is a fiber layer (ie Lines representing where fiber optic cable is located).  The second SDF file is the vendor layer (ie Buffer area that represent the right-of-way ownership of the fiber/ie railroad or public).  I want to use the second SDF file to query the first SDF file.  For example I want to use the vendor layer to select all fiber that is on railroad right-of-way.  I have no problem quering single SDF files, but I figure in AutoCAD there has to be a way to accomplish this task.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Import Point Data With Object Data?

Jan 20, 2011

how to import point data that has Map Object Data also attached to it? "import it by attaching to a data source".

Example: I have a bunch of manholes. Each MH has X,Y,Z, but also Type, Invert Elevs., Pipe Sizes, Pipe Materials, Pipe Directions, Structure Type/Material, etc. etc. etc. I may have point data representing MH's, airport runway ends, trees, anything you can imagine, with all kinds of data imaginable. 

I want to import this data directly into Autocad/Civil 3D as either Autocad points, lines, or closed polylines (I also have utility lines, parking lots, etc.- all with data associated with it), all with the data attached as object data. I know that anything more complex than points might be hard to explain here, so I am hoping at least for a solution on how to import points - I have 99,999 MH's and obviously I don't want to have to type all that data in one by one.

I basically suck at using sql server. I can get around using the Map workspace and the different tabs. I have never used FDO, and I am not even sure what it is.

I fooled it today by creating 99,999 Autocad points at the correct XYZ, attaching the correct object data to them, then exporting as a shp file. I went into the shp_name.dbf file and edited it to add the data I wanted by cutting & pasting from Excel. then I re-imported the shp file. but, this is a workaround at best.

Surely Map can import objects and their associated data fields, all populated with valid data! all I need is to know how to do it. I mean, if this is not something I can do directly using Map commands should I take the money I earned by surveying 99,999 MH's with my GIS data collector that allows me to assign 101data fields to each object I survey, and buy something better?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Transfer Link Data To Object Data?

Mar 28, 2013

I have a drawing with Objects that have both Object Data and Linked data in an Access database. I need to get information from the linked table to a new linked table for each object.

I have thought that if I get the necessary information from the Linked table record to the object data for each object, I could then convert the Object data to a new link and am looking for a way to copy the data from a field in the Linked Table to the object data.  There is at least one field common to both the OD and Linked Table record.

Is there any automated way to transfer this data?

AutoCad :: Object Data To Attribute Data To Perfection?

Oct 15, 2010

I'm working in AutoCAD Map 3D 2008 and Autocad Civil 3D 2009.

The General Task:I want to convert the object data to attribute data so that I can export it to an Excel file, add another column of data, and then import that new data as attribute data.

The Specific Task:I have thousands of campus water meter locations (a block with a small icon, attribute data, and object data) that belong to two different systems, domestic water and lake water. Each of these blocks has object data item (a barcode tag) that I want to show as a label next to the block.

However, before I do that, I want to export that barcode data to an excel file so I add a column (eventually a new piece of attribute data) that says whether or not that specific water meter is radio read or manually read. I want to then import that radio read/manual read excel file back into autocad and have an X appear on the block icon if it is radio read. I also want the barcode information to show up as a label.

My problem:I can't get the barcode object data to export with the locations in one easy excel sheet that I can simply import after I have made my changes.

Find some person on here who knows how to convert object data to attribute data.

GIMP :: Querying New Plugins On Every Launch

Nov 16, 2013

As far as I know, before GIMP 2.8.6, it didn't querying new plugins on every launch. It only did so when there were new plugins installed. When 2.8.6 came about, GIMP would query all plugins on every launch. With 2.8.8 it seems to only do this with user installed plugins. I assume this a bug but I'm not entirely sure as I didn't really pay attention to the startup screen prior to 2.8.6.

CorelDRAW X6 :: Stack With SVG Data Object In Object Manager

Apr 3, 2013

There is problem with my CorelDRAW X6.

After I import different files in my working file, it's getting hard to work- RAM(16GB) is getting completely full and its almost unworkable!
I checked out Object Manager and found stack with "SVG data" and "Locked SVG data" object there under some basic shapes.

Stack is about from 10000 to 100000... Some times even more, but its not possible to select all them because Corel just stops. What is that-  "SVG data" and "Locked SVG data" object and why they are so many there?

AutoCad :: Name Objects In Data Visualization Model

Nov 23, 2011

I have complete structural data on mature redwood trees that I have been able to get into AutoCad for visualization and error correction purposes. The results are amazing. The orbit command allows me to fly all around the tree and see it from many angles, which allows me to spot errors in the data. The trees are modeled as large collections of cones and conic frusta. Essentially all I use is the cone command, and change the layers if I am drawing the trunk, side trunks and/or branches. I have been able to do this with a script.

My dilemma: Every conic section in the original data has a unique name. When I find a structural error visually it is very hard to determine where the error is in the original data. It would be great if I could name each object (conic frusta) with its corresponding name form the original data, with the script. I could then track down the errors more easily.

A few questions:

What is the best approach? It seems that creating a block for each conic frusta would work (some trees have over 600 conic sections), but I haven't been able to automate this with scripts.

When testing the exact structure that would be needed in a script I encounter the following problems: When I create a block from a selected conic section from the command line with "-block" the resulting block disappears and I have to insert it later. This seemed fine until I tried running a script. The script created a block with the right name but nothing was in it when I opened it in the block editor. If I use "block" it does exactly what I want it to, but "block" doesn't work with a script because it uses the graphical version of the command.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Duplicate Data Referenced Objects

May 15, 2012

Not sure if this is something that has been going on a while, if it is a design flaw, or if it just a workflow thing that we should be more mindful of, but here goes:

1. I data reference an alignment into a drawing.

2. I later data reference in a profile that was created from and associated with that alignment.

In this scenario, Civil 3D creates a duplicate alignment for the profile i.e., the orginal alignment is in prospetor as 'Alignment A' and the profile being data referenced in creates a 'Alignemnt A (1)' duplicate and associates itself with it.

This also happens if I bring in a different profile created from the same alignment IF the alignment was already present as a data reference in the drawing.

This seems wrong. It doesn't do any of this if I data reference the profile in first...

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Objects Returned From Data Query Do Not Appear With Their Related Text

Apr 5, 2012

We are using AutoCAD Map 3D 2011 (Service Pack 2 - Version 3).  This is replicable on multiple machines in multiple OS environments.

We attach a source drawing, run a query on Object Data but when that data appears in Model space it appears without any of the accompanying text for that object.

You can then execute the same query with a crossing window which brings in the surrounding objects including their text, but the original object still does not have its text.  If you delete the object and re-run the query with the crossing window again, then the object appears with its text.

This is a nightmare for the users because if they want to search on a specific object, and then have to delete it to get it back with the text, they then have to search for the item in amongst all the other items.  This kind of defeats the purpose of querying that object in the first place.

Is this just the way AutoCAD functions, or are we doing something wrong in our process sequence for querying the object data?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Name Polylines With Object Data

Jun 9, 2011

We need to take polylines from AutoCAD Map 3D to 3ds Max and rename each polyline to have a name of something like "Building Number-Room Number", both of which are defined in our properties for each polyline. Because none of this data is kept on import to Max, we need to do this all in Map 3D, which we are not experienced with. Is there a way to do this, and if so what? We are importing the .dwg files in Max with polylines as splines.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Objects In Mirroring Of Object Change With Object Used As Reference For Mirroring

Aug 6, 2012

I got a simple question about the creation of copies of an object. Is it possible to have the objects in the mirroring of an object change with the object used as reference for mirroring?

If there is no function to do this directly is there a way to do it via Ilogics to update the mirrored objects? If possible even by deleting and creating a new the mirroring yet not manually but by i logic?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Combine Object Data Tables?

Jun 12, 2013

A large combined file in our GIS format corrupted. I dug out all the old files that were originally used to create it but they are too old and will not combine in the GIS.

I exported each one to SHP, and then imported all of them into civil 3d as shp files, creating object data. This meant that I could correct the corrupted sections, which I have done, but now I need to get it back into the GIS program with the object data intact.

The problem is that the object data, coming from several combined files, is in several tables. Each table contains the same identical fields. (eg every table has a field called drawing)

I need to combine those tables so that I can re-export the shape files. I need one table with all of the object data in it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Select By Object Data?

May 22, 2013

We have a perenial problem with our old GIS software where files corrupt and drawing objects are lost.

There are few export options available, but export to shape is one of them. This means that I can export a damaged file and then import it into CAD with the layers intact and the tagged numbers (similar to object data or a block attribute in CAD) imported as object data. In order to make a new uncorrupted version for the GIS program.

Is there a way to select objects by object data?

If a file is corrupted, the only real way to repair it at the moment is to go back to the original cad drawing and reimport and then retag every single tagged attribute on what can be thousands of drawing objects, and by then we may no longer have the handdrawn data to even do that.

The next workaround is if I creat new dwgs from the cad drawing, Each one containing the objects with the same object data, and each saved with a file name that matches that object data, and then reimport into the GIS. (it can use the filename as a tag). This creates a new GIS file with the surviving information that should not lose any more data and we may be able to patch the 'holes' afterwards.

The problem is selecting all the polylines in the cad drawing that have that same tagged number in the object data. Select similar just goes on object type and layer. This would be easier if I could select by object data and get everything with the same tag in one go.

A way to batch create the new dwgs from that selected data would be nice too.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Exporting PDF - HasSaveCopyAsOptions Returns False

Nov 21, 2012

I have a VB.NET routine that exports a pdf using the TranslatorAddIn interface.  I copied the example from the api help.

The pdf is created, but only the first sheet of the drawing is exported.  I uncommented the following line in the example code, and still no change:

oOptions.Value("Sheet_Range") = kPrintAllSheets

I added a message box, to make sure I was reaching that line, and I found that I was not in fact reaching that line.  Why is this?  In some posts here related to dwf exporting also using the TranslatorAddIn, the first argument of HasSaveCopyAsOptions was oDataMedium instead of oDocument, so I tried that, too, but still no change.

Here is the code of the export to PDF routine from the api example:

Public Sub PublishPDF() ' Get the PDF translator Add-In. Dim PDFAddIn As TranslatorAddIn Set PDFAddIn = ThisApplication.ApplicationAddIns.ItemById("{0AC6FD96-2F4D-42CE-8BE0-8AEA580399E4}") 'Set a reference to the active document (the document to be published). Dim oDocument As Document
