AutoCad :: Determining Polar Coordinates On Hard Copy Drawing

Aug 19, 2012

I just started my CAD classes. I have been doing basic 2d drawing and just learning the commands etc.

My question concerns polar coordinates. I know how they work, but are you expected to be able to get polar coordinates off lets say a hard copy drawing with no annotations.

My homework so far has always had the length of the lines depicted on the drawing but not the angles. So if I was required to replicate a drawing that had no annotation is there any way other than guessing or whipping out my protractor.

This is just a nagging thought as I strive to understand CAD.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Defining A Grid Of Points With Polar Coordinates

Jun 20, 2011

I'm trying to define a grid based on polar coordinates.

Can be produced using the following MATLAB

I need to insert points based on the polar coordinates defined by the equations. I knew a little bit of LISP 10 Years ago, now it's a total blank. I've been trying to write a script to make this work but after 5 days I'm still without sucess.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Calk / Copy A Drawing Action To Other Coordinates

Feb 12, 2013

My project: I want to create a drawing based on a photo. The usual way is to place the picture on the working space in Draw and fix it there.Then draw all parts I want to have in my copy.Problem: I can't always really see what I am drawing. 

Now my question:Is there a possibiltiy to "calk" a drawing to different coordinates than above the picture itself?For example: The photo is on the left, I "draw" above the picture and the drawing action, e.g. the stroke, happens right from the photo. The y-coordinates of the copy could stay the same while the x-coordinates are x plus a certain value.

AutoCad :: Determining Scale Of Drawing

Feb 17, 2013

I need determining the scale of a drawing I got from the internet in ratio form. the drawing itself has a little scale bar in the corner, however, since i do not know the measurements of the actual structure i have no reference point and therefore cannot figure out the scale in ratios.

I read on here that you can use general reference point such as the average dimensions of a door/window ceiling etc. but the drawing is a longitudinal section of a church, namely, Temppeliaukio kirkko, which has no 'standard' dimensions.

I need this drawing in 1:100

AutoCad :: Publishing Drawings And Determining Which Space The Drawing Is In

Oct 4, 2011

I've got a persisitant problem with the publishing feature in autocad. I know how to set up bulk print of drawings using publish.

However the drawings are a mixed lot (some in paper some in layout). Is there a way to determine the state of the drawing without opening each one. In my case there is thousands of drawings and of course i do not have the manpower to inspect each one.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Copy And Paste To Original Coordinates

Nov 20, 2012

I am currently designing a kitchen with a complete floor plan. I had requested some accessories files from a company called Pearl works and they sent me each file that I requested. The problem is that when I copy and paste each image file into my existing floor plan, they all show up as the same image and not the seperate images that should appear. Am I doing something wrong with the clipboard process?

I have also tried deleting the drawing and re-inserting a different file and when I do every file thereafter is the same as the one that I just switched.

AutoCad :: Copy Paste With Original Coordinates Doesn't Work?

Aug 1, 2012

I have two DWG files and I want to paste the content of the first into the second file with the original coordinates. It sounds very easy (and I am sure it is) but I am still failing. I open the first file, select all (crtl a), copy all (crtl a), open the other file and want to chose the function: right click > paste with original coordinates. But this open is not active (grey) and can not be clicked. Actually there is no paste function available to click on if I do a right click.

btw. I am working with AutoCAD 2012.

AutoCad :: Extract X And Y Coordinates On A Drawing?

Apr 4, 2012

I have to tabulate the X and Y co-ordinates along a polyline at 1 metre intervals. I have divided the polyline into segments of one metre and have tried to use a command called data extraction. So I use this command and individually click on each point. The end result gives me the X and Y coordinates in the order I have picked them however when I put it into a table on the drawing it messes up the order?

AutoCAD 2010 :: No Longer Copy / Past One Item From One Drawing To Separate Drawing

Eventually after I copy and paste with the clipboard enough times within one drawing, the ability goes away and I can no longer copy and past one item from one drawing to a separate drawing.  I need to use the clipboard function because that is the only way of getting an item from one drawing to another.  

I have download a clear clipboard function but it doesn't work. Closing CAD and restarting does not reinstate the function.

AutoCAD LT :: Coordinating Drawing To Actual On Ground Coordinates

Feb 6, 2013

My problem is that I require to extract coordinates from specific points on the drawing and set them out on the ground at the real location.

On the drawing there are several base station locations with known coordinates. I have tried coordinating the drawing using Ctrl a, move, then type in the known coordinates of one of the base station location but nothing happens. I have also set the drawing to world with no change.

The coordinates in the bottom left corner are shown but are around 500m out.

Photoshop :: Finding A Plugin That Can Copy Coordinates Of A Selection To The Clipboard?

Is there a plugin in existance, that I can make a selection in Photoshop and then copy the coordinates of that selection to the clipboard?
I am a texture artist and frequently lay a number of graphics out in one file, before typing out the coordinates for each element. Currently this is slow manual task, but could be made so much faster if I didn't have to type everything out.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Copy Drawing Views To New Drawing Template

Sep 20, 2013

I've recently made a new drawing template with ilogic prompts for entering data for all fields within the template. It also sets view sizes etc.  I have lots of master drawings, which are reused when sizes etc change for a contract, which i would like to transfer to this new template. Drawing Resource Transfer Wizard does not offer this function.

I could get all drawings in a folder copied to specific sheet size on the master template.As the template will probably be developed further in the future I'm very loathed to do this take manually.

Lightroom :: How To Copy (not Move) Entire Library To New Hard Drive

Dec 9, 2013

I would like to consolidate all of my image files onto one  hard drive by copying them from multiple drives to one large new one. The desired result is that I would have my library on that new drive, with all the links making sense to LR, but leaving the original files on those original drives as an archival back up. I know how to MOVE the files within LR, but I can't figure out how to COPY them. If the image files were not already in the catalog, I would just import them using "copy and add to catalog." Worst case, I suppose I could move all of the files to the new drive and then export copies to the old drives, but that seems very time consuming. I have more than 3TB of files.
