AutoCad 2D :: Custom Layout Scales Not Working

Jun 2, 2012

I am using AutoCAD 2011.

I want to add a few new scales in layout. The new scales are: 4"=1'-0" up to 5-3/4"=1'-0" in 1/4" increments. Unfortunately when I add the scales in scale list edit while I'm in Layout, my drawing doesn't scale to any of the new scales.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Dimensioning Disappear When Change Scales In Layout

May 14, 2013

when I demension a drawing in model space, and then go to the layout where I have a viewport set up, if I change the scale for the viewport, the dimensioning disappears and I can't get it back.

This is a coworker's drawing, so I'll do my best to answer questions on how it was created.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Custom Fields / Scales

Apr 25, 2012

I've successfully written a lisp routine to insert a scale bar dynamic block with attributes, gather the object id of a user selected viewport, and write fields to attributes for each of the numbers across the top of the typical scale bar as well as the scale name, for both architectural and civil units. I'm trying to come up with a similar dynamic blocklisp routine combination to do the same with view titles, and the associated scale callout. The catch in this case is that I'd like to display the scale as "NTS" if it isn't a proper scale. The "standardscale" object property option in the field dialog box gives me almost exactly what I want, except that non-standard scales are displayed as "CUSTOM" as opposed to "NTS". Moreover, I’d like this to update on the fly, if the viewport scale changes, the scale callout needs to change also, back and forth from “NTS” to a standard scale if need be.

is there a way to change that (CUSTOM NTS)? My research online seems to indicate that the nuts and bolts of fields are deeply rooted in ObjectARX, which is something I know very little about?

The natural followup to that question is, if I can't change "CUSTOM" to read "NTS", is there a way to wrangle this whole thing with reactors? I'm envisioning object reactors, created as a part of the insertion routine, for each individual instance of the block (there could very well be several in a layout, and multiple layouts in detail drawings), that would call another routine to evaluate the viewport scale, and if it didn’t match a list of standard scales, write NTS to the attribute. My issue is that reactors seem to only associate with one object, in this case that’d be the viewport, the reaction would cause the reactor to call the routine, but how does the routine know which block to update? Is there something from the viewport properties that I can add to the block name (or some other property) which will allow the routine to figure out which block to edit?

I’ve attached my scale bar code, and block, as reference context for how I plan to set the view title up.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Add Scales To List Scales?

Oct 6, 2013

create a code to add scales to the scale’s list?

I just want to have the necessary scales, so don’t want to add to the template.

The command function is basically to allow me type the value of the scale and based on that, adjust the properties of the scale. (Name appearing in scale list - Paper Milimeters - Drawing Meters)


>Command line: setscale

>type the value of the scale to create: 50

set 1:50 to default

After Effects :: Working With 3D Layers And Camera Only In Miniature Scales?

Feb 10, 2013

I'm matching 3D layers in AE to footage shot with camera. When I try to work with this I seem to work with sizes that AE can't cope with. In real life a layer should be 20 meters away from the camera. When I try to set these settings it jumps back to about 12 meters. ALso the camera can't be offset more than about -12000 mm (12 meters). That's no good. After Effects seems to work with tiny sizes. (you can't use meters or even cm as units, just mm). When I look in top view in my windows everything is out of reach. can't find the camera, can't find the layers. So...of course it's me doing something wrong and AE should be set differently, but how?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Custom Linestyles Not Displaying Correctly In Layout

Mar 2, 2012

I have a utilities file with existing water and FM as shown in picture 1.  But when I reference it into my sheet, the text becomes very tiny.  Is there a setting for paper space I should change?  The dash is correct, just the letters get small, so changing the ltscale in the original drawing blows up the dash also so that won't work.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Importing Layout From Template Not Working?

Oct 16, 2013

So everytime I import a layout from my template, the scale comes out wrong. The border is way too big, viewport, and the stamp is also way to big. It's being scaled by approximately by 12.28 times.

Here's what I can share:

- both drawings are in inches in both files

- all that 'insunits' stuff is set to zero in both files

- 'measurement' and 'measureinit' is set to zero in both files

- using AutoCAD 2012

- xyz scale is all at 1.00

- the titleblock itself almost imports correctly, only some of my att text doesn't come out properly as well.

As far as i can tell it's the command 'from template' issue. Because when i cut and paste the templates layout contents, it comes out fine.

AutoCAD Architecture :: App Intersection Osnap Not Working In Layout?

Oct 18, 2010

Using ACA 2011 and Win7 here... and I've noticed that the apparent intersection osnap does not want to work at all while working in a layout if the geometry I'm trying to snap to is also drawn in the layout.

If the geometry is in model space that osnap will work fine both in model space (through the viewport) and from outside the viewport.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Rail Track Layout Utility - How To Add Custom Rail Type

Feb 27, 2013

Is it possible to define custom Rail Types in Rail Track Layout Utility for AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2013?

There is only combobox with predefined Rail types 49, 54, 60.

I found: "The rail type defines the standard turnout types (e.g. 49, 54, 60 etc.)or other user defined types "

, also there is mentioned, that  "...pre-prepared turnout types that are written in the XML file ara_switch.xml"

I can't find that ara_switch.xml file.

AutoCad 2D :: Huge Lineweight - But Polylines Not Working With Custom Linetypes

Feb 8, 2013

My custom linetype (something like this ----W----W----W----W---- ) doesn't work as a huge polyline (6 units wide.) The line is wide enough but the letters are tiny dots.

If I try to set the lineweight by layer, the maximum is 2.11 mm, which is way too small for the 50" by 70" map I'm working on.

Is there a way to get a nice looking line that wide with letters ( ----W---- for water, -----S---- for sewer, etc.) or should I tell my boss that we have to use the standard lines?

Illustrator :: Shortcut Only Working With English Keyboard Layout

Aug 19, 2013

so naturally our keyboard layouts are Danish.But there's a fantastic shortcut in Illustrator, that only works with the English layout. Basically - make a square and place a pattern in it. If you rotate the box using 'R' you rotate the entire box and the pattern. But if you hold the 'button next to 1' (tilde in some parts of the world, console in other parts) and then press 'R' it will only rotate the pattern and not the box.
However, that only works with the English layout.. what is the name of that function, so I can set up the shortcut manually or change the keys needed for the shortcut?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Custom Appearance Library Colors Randomly Quit Working?

Aug 8, 2012

We are have been using Inventor to draw wooden furniture for a couple years, and have a custom appearance library with several different finishes (using photos of actual finished pieces of wood). Every now and then a part (ipt) takes a notion to not change to the color we set it to, seemingly without ryhme or reason. This mostly occurs with mirrored parts, but occasionally a standard (not mirrored part) will do this as well.

We have done all the obvious things, and some not so obvious. The path to the photos and the library is added to the project, and I opened the Appearance Browser and checked to make sure appearance knows where to find its bmp file, and it still doesn't do it to change color. And yes, I tried restarting my computer, because a couple days ago I was working with the Appearance Browser, and sometimes restarting Inventor made a difference in whether certain things worked or didn't work. This is also not limited to one computer, it acts like this on all of our computers.

We are using some png files and some bmp picture files. Would the file format maybe have something to do with it ?

Paint Shop Pro :: Custom Fonts Just Stopped Working All Together

Dec 13, 2012

Just today, while making graphics and such, my custom fonts just stopped working all together. Every single one that I have installed just shows up as nothing and is un-selectable when using it. The one in particular that i was using is Bebas Neue. Although all installed fonts are not working either.This happened out of the blue and I don't remember hitting anything or changing anything. Just typing with the font and it refused to show.

Steps Taken:
1. Reset All Preferences
2. Shift Key Trick on Load Up
3. Restarting the Computer
4. Reinstalling PSP X2
5. Using the font in other programs - Which they WORK (Word, GIMP, Adobe Illustrator, etc.)
6. Uninstalling/Reinstalling the Font itself.

Photoshop :: Custom Warp After Skewing Or Altering Perspective Not Working Properly?

Feb 18, 2012

I'm using Photoshop CS3, and the warp tool seems to behave differently after performing the skew or perspective transformations.  If I try to warp after doing one of these two transformations, I am unable to click on any of the points or handles.   The only thing it will let me do is alter the lines, but the points themselves cannot be moved.  What am I missing?

AutoCad :: Drawing At Different Scales

Oct 9, 2011

I am a very infrequent user of CAD and still do things like I used to do back in the '90s.

I draw in Model space at full scale--except, and this is why I am posting this question, when I have a small detail I want to be visible.

Can I draw a detail in Model space that is a different scale than the main drawing, or do I have to make it 'larger' by using Paper space and a viewport. Like maybe a block or some procedure I am unaware of.

AutoCad :: Printing In Different Scales

Nov 7, 2012

I have a question about printing an autocad drawing. Currently I have two drawings on the model tab. I have drawn them both 1:1.

Now I need to print them both out on a same A3 paper, with different scales. The other one will be printed in 1:100 and the other in 1:50.

I have drawn a pretty good amount on autocad but this is my first time printing/plotting so I am asking for pretty specific instructions.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Linetype Changing Scales

Jun 15, 2012

I am using Map 3D 2013

I have several drawings in which I want to use a line type (centrex2) at a specific scale. The scale setting is exactly the same in all the drawings but in some the line type is coming out at different scales, all larger, but not the same or to a set factor. All the entities in question are poly lines (2d).

I have checked in all drawings that:
global scale factor and current object scale in the line type manager are the same (1.0)drawing units are the same (unitless)‘use paper space units for scaling’ is always deselected line type generation is always enabled.

AutoCAD LT :: Configure Two Viewports At Two Different Scales?

Nov 15, 2011

I used the layout wizard to configure 2 vertical viewports as instructed in the manual. Next I try to paste an object in one viewport at a scale of 1:20, engineering imperial. The object appears in both viewports in model space. I only want the object in one viewport and I cannot erase the object in the other viewport, since they both dissappear. I also cannot draw a line in one viewport without it appearing in the second viewport. If I switch one viewport to current paper space the line can be drawn but I want each viewport to be at a different scale. Is there some way around this? Is my AutoCAD LT program capable of doing this?

AutoCAD LT :: Scales In PDF Format Incorrectly

Aug 26, 2013

Yesterday, I sent a drawing that I scaled as 1/2" = 1'-0" in an Adobe PDF, and was told by the receiver that the drawing scale was off by 3-4% when they measured it. Hoping that is was the printer's problem, I sent a drawing from  another file to FEDEX, and went and scaled that one myself. Sure enough, it's off. It doesn't matter whether it is windowed or brought in a paper space viewport.

AutoCad 2D :: Purging Viewport Scales

I just started at this company and each time I try to choose a scale for my viewport I am confronted with a daunting list of hundreds of scales to choose from. Most of them have XREFXREFXREFXREF....following them.

how can I reset this to the default list of scales? Or at least purge or edit this massive list. BTW, the same happens when selecting annotative scale.We are on AutoCad 2008.

AutoCad 2D :: Multiple Linetype Scales

Jan 14, 2013

We deal with multiple architects at our company, all of whom have different standards for their Linetype Scales (on a drawing at a scale of 1/8"=1'-0" some use 36, others 24 etc).

We need to take their Architectural drawings, remove all of there dimension notes etc and create an empty floor plan we put our designs on.

The issue is that we cannot have all of our symbols work with one consistent linetype. We have to go into the block and manually overide the LTS of the individual item to suite the LTS of the architects drawing.

Is there a way we can insert the architect background as an x-ref and have the LTS of our drawing not effect it? Or possibly a LISP/Script that divides the individual LTS of all their entities by their global LTS so everything looks fine in our drawings.

We have had issues with annotative objects in the past with some of the architects drawings so that is not a viable option.
