AutoCad 2D :: How To Fix Offset And Get Text On Same Plane As Line Work

Jan 9, 2013

I am having a problem with some dimensions in a drawing. I have a 2D representation of my 3D model (using FLATSHOT) in my model space. I added the dimensions in a custom UCS and everything looks fine in paper space when looking at the TOP view but in model space I notice that the text is offset on the z-axis by a very large amount, like 7 meters large (I'm working in mm). How to fix the offset and get the text on the same plane as the line work?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Changing The Source Of An Offset Work Plane

Jan 9, 2014

I have a vertically rectangular frame with internal frame elements at two separate levels based off offset work planes.

The lowest internal plane is offset up from the XZ plane and the highest internal plane is offset up from that lower plane. In hindsight I should have based that second plane also off of XZ, or off the height extents plane at the top of the rectangular box.

So that top third section of the box CAN be sized with a little math, but if I change the lower 2/3  of the rectangle it's going to want to follow that lowest internal plane (which I can tweak again to get what I want) there a way to just change the source of that higher internal planes source plane? Like switching it to XZ or the height extents?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Offset Lisp Routine To Offset Selected Line?

Jun 7, 2013

I need an offset lisp routine to offset a selected line a set distance on each side of the selected line and change the layer of the offset lines to the current layer, and then keep prompting me to select the next line for offsetting until I'm finished.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Create A Line With Text Offset

May 6, 2013

I am a beginner at LISP and this is a bit out of my league... and I'm trying to create a lisp where I can draw a polyline between 2 points that also places text with the actual distance offset above the line.

I did find this post and I'm not quite catching on.. [URL] ......

AutoCAD Inventor :: No Parameter Name For Offset Plane

Jun 22, 2012

All previous releases of Inventor before 2013 would display the name of the parameter that controls the offset value of a plane. While editing an offset plane you could see the name either in the title of the pop up or by holding your cursor over the parameter value. In release 2013 I have been unable to find the parameter name anywhere when editing the plane. I have a lot of equations in my models. Being able to track down bugs is difficult enough without not knowing what parameter I'm looking at.

Is there a setting I need to turn on/off to get the parameter name to display again?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Offset 3D Sketch In Direction Normal To A Plane?

May 17, 2013

I would like to be able to offset a 3D Sketch in a direction normal to a plane.  In the attached image, I have drawn in an orange color the direction I would like the 3DSketch to offset.The white line is where the new sketch would be.

The yellow surface is the 3dsketch extend to a plane

There might be some tools in Inventor that will do what I am trying, but I have not found it yet.  I have tried extend surface, but that will not take it the direction I want.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Create Work Axis Where Work Plane Intersects Curved Surface?

Sep 9, 2013

I keep running into a situation where I would like to be able to create an edge or a work axis at the intersection of a work plane and the surface of the part.  I figured out a work around if the surface is flat, but I haven't figured out a work around for a curved surface.

How do I create work axis where work plane intersects curved surface?

Or put another way: How do I project intersection of work plane and curved surface onto the work plane in a 2D sketch?

I need to be able to draw a 2D sketch on the work plane, but get a perfectly matching projected line onto the work plane, from the curved surface, at the intersection of the curved surface and the work plane.

The attached jpg shows the intersection in question.  I circled it.

AutoCad :: Can't Get Dimension To Work In Vertical (Z) Plane

Mar 10, 2012

I cant get a dimension to work in the vertical (Z) plane. i have a cube and can get dimensions to work properly in the x*y plane (horizontal) but when i try to dimension the vertical side autocad refuses to dimension anything vertical, all i get is a horizontal dimension of the distance between the 2 points i have selected vertically, set down on the horizontal plane. tried to get it to work in 3d workspace and also the 2d annotation & dimensioning workspace -no joy...

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Text And Line Work In Model Space Turns Gray When Reopen File?

Sep 27, 2012

For some reason when I place new text or line work in a file it is fine, but when I save the drawing, close it and re-open it all of the text and line work found in model space goes gray. Yet if I place new text and use the match property command on text placed previously, that is now gray, and use it on new text, the new text recieves the attributes of what the previously placed text has minus the appearance of being gray. In my drawing I am using a shape file and a data connect image through planning and analysis.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Get Origin Work Plane Of Face Proxy

Jun 14, 2013

I created an Assembly-Constraint between two Work planes by creating a Geometry Proxy

CreateGeometryProxy(OriginWorkplane, TargetWorkPlanProxy)

Now, I want to look into the assembly Constraints and want to get the origin Work plane of the component. So, I now, it's the entity One of a specific Constraint I also now.

What I get is a Face Proxy (the EntityOne gives back a FaceProxy). But how can I get the Workplane, the Proxy Element once was created?

I can get the Surface Body the Work plane was created on, but I don't get the name of the Workplane. My target is, to get the name of the work plane.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Constrain Section View To Work Plane

Jul 2, 2013

If you edit a section view sketch you can project model edges in the sketch and use them to constrain the section view line. However I cannot seem to project an included workplane to the sketch. For a particular application I really need to use a workplane because the model is actually a dummy that gets replaced by a vb macro. So any projected model edges will loose their reference.

I found out that I could use a sketch in the model to create the section view. In a model sketch it is possible to project work planes, so this looks like a good solution. However I do prefer the flexibility that you have when you use a drawing sketch.

How to use a work plane to constrain a section view, other then the model sketch method explained above.
