AutoCad :: Batch Plot 50 Drawings - Publish With Block Stamp?

Jun 20, 2012

I'd like to batch plot 50 drawings, all of which have the same title block in the same position. This is easy with the PUBLISH command, but I'd like to be able to add a "stamp" of the customer logo to these drawings, which I have as a block in a separate file. Basically I want to easily be able to plot the same drawings for different customers, the only difference being the customer logo. Is this possible?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Publish To DWFx Plot Stamp Layer

Aug 29, 2011

When I publish a drawing as a multipage DWFx (or PDF for that matter) with "Include Layer Information" selected, the Plot Stamp (Simple Date/Time and Text) comes out but on different layers on different layouts.

First Layout : Plotstamp resides on Layer 0
Second Layout: Plotstamp resides on Layer 3P
Third Layout: EQPT-VC

Some general information:
Autodesk AutoCAD 2011 64bit
Autodesk DesignReview - 2012
Adobe Acrobat X Professional

Layer 0 Is thawed/plotable and on in all layouts, viewports all layers, viewports.  It has at least one entity per layout

Is there anyway to rectify this and still use the built-in Plot Stamp?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Publish And Automatically Load All Open Drawings?

Sep 20, 2011

I don't remember ever using this checkbox on the Publish dialog box but today i want to and i can't figure out how to make it work. The help file ~seems~ to say that if i select this, the contents of all open documents (layouts and/or model space) are automatically loaded.... but they don't.

I know i can pick the Add Sheets button and manually select all the drawings i have open but doesn't that defeat the purpose of this checkbox?

AutoCad :: Publish (Batch Plotting) With IFC Block

Jul 31, 2012

Earlier I asked about a "Issued fo Construction" block with automatic date....I was thinking if there is anyway to "publish" ~65 loop diagrams and it insert the "IFC" block on it's own? When publish is finished, I open any loop drawing and the "IFC" block is NOT present. Can this be done with a script?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Publish Command Won't Publish

May 9, 2013

Using AutoCAD 2013, myself and several other coworkers have encountered an error message when creating a pdf with the publish command. I attached a screen shot of it.

We never experienced this in earlier versions. It doesn't happen 100% of the time, but it has been recurring more in the past month. I have restarted the computer after receiving the message and then invoked the publish command after restart and it was successful. I'm not going to do this every time I publish, nor do I see the need to turn off background plotting. That just seems like a bandaid fix.

I even tried publishing with different page setups to determine if it would react differently to any page setup, but it doesn't. I attached a view of my publish window, as well.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Change Plot Setup To Multiple Sheets For Use With Batch Plot

May 21, 2013

I have one drawing per file at model tab. When I need to plot a multiple page file, I use:

Print > Batch Plot.

The problem is that I have to set plot configurations ( plot style table, plot area, paper size, etc) in each file before use Batch Plot.

Now I received 722 files with a wrong Plot Style Table. For this time I change the associated *.ctb file at Plot Style folder, but I will need to associate the right *.ctb to each drawing. It's also common to have to change other properties.

AutoCAD LT :: Publish Drawings To Overwrite Existing PDF Drawings

Apr 2, 2013

Every now and then I go back and try to use publish to speed up printing but I always go back to plotting one by one.

I work in a housing construction office and I have 10 separate drawings side by side in model space for house plans that I need plot separate to give to certain people. My problem isn't that I can't publish them separately its that I can't save them over existing pdf's individually predetermined. 

Q1. do i just have to go through and change every layout name before or after i publish?

Q2. how do i change the output publish location?

Q3. can each layout be saved to a different existing pdf and remember it?

Q3. can i save these setting across to a new drawing?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Publish Vs Plot - Image Shifts And Border Cut Off

Aug 13, 2012

I have found that when I Publish, the drawing comes out shifted about 1/8" down and 1/8" left as compared to when I use Plot. Which of course is just enough to cut off the sheet border which is 1/2" from the paper edge. I am using the same Page Setup for both Publish and Plot, same drawing.

This is to an Oce TDS600, and it only happens with 15x21 paper size. All paper sizes are set to 0" border. Probably an Oce issue, but have any of you seen this before?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Get Batch Plot To Plot PDFs To Single File

Sep 30, 2013

I have just switched over to 2014 and i cannot for the life of me get my batch plot to plot PDF's to a single file! Instead, it's printing all 37 layouts separate. I tried switching between multi-file & single file in the publish options, but nothing!

i know that it took me a while to perfect my settings the last time i set up a new version, but i am struggling to work it out now.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Plotting To PDF Drawings Disappear When Go To Plot

May 25, 2011

So I have the educational version of ACAD 2012 and this is my first time using that version. My model is done and I formatted my layout with a border and the model to scale in the viewport. When I go to plot to PDF, all I see is the border. I've tried fiddling with colors and viewports but neither of those did anything.

AutoCad :: Plot To PDF With Batch Plot Or Export Drawing To PDF

Mar 17, 2011

AutoCAD 2011 - XP - 2 Machine office

When I use the pdf plot drivers from AutoCAD or the export to pdf option the resulting pdf is not available to the other computer trying to access it through a shared folder.

When I plot to pdf with batch plot or export the drawing to pdf and save the file in the shared folder, the other computer can not open the pdf (file not found) or attach the file to an email (you do not have permission)

Why is this? All other files share and open fine. Only pdf files from batch plot, plot to dwg to pc3, or export to pdf. This is a pain and I still have to use another plot driver (cutepdf) to get a fully useable pdf for our office.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Drawings Stamp With Date?

Apr 15, 2012

Currently in autocad we start the print/plot command and then the command line shows options for the drawing stamp. There are several options including for approval, approved for construction, test only and others. When the appropriate number associated with the correct drawing stamp it lets you pick an insertion point and inserts the drawing stamp with a current date under the stamp to show when the drawing was plotted. After the drawing stamp is inserted it returns to the print/plot dialog.

If any IV users have a similar drawing stamp with date that is put on their drawings, I would like to hear how it was accomplished.

I have played with a sketched symbol and with ilogic can insert the symbol and start the print/plot command but I do not know how to make the stamp selection in ilogic automatic with a parameter or iproperty.

If ilogic is the way to go with this or any other options to accomplish the drawing stamp insertions with current date.

AutoCad :: Publish Multiple Drawings To PDF - Autosave?

Jul 5, 2011

I'm weaning myself off of Adobe's PDFMaker and learning how to publish.

I've got everything working but I'm prompted at an Adobe prompt (Save PDF File As...) for every sheet
which is overwhelming when I have multiple drawings with multiple sheets.

I don't know how (or if it is possible) to make it just save to the default name and continue onto the next one.

AutoCad :: Adding Plot Stamp To Drawing

Jul 14, 2011

I'm having trouble adding a plot stamp to my drawing in AutoCAD 2002. My drawing is in meters and the page in paper space is 0.841m wide by 0.594m high. I can not figure out the setting for the plot stamp to put it in the bottom left corner. This is my first time trying to use a plot stamp so things will need to be explained most likely.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Getting Rid Of Product Plot Stamp

Jan 2, 2011

When I try to open or create drawings in autocad (which i downloaded recently from the edu community) it gives me a warning which says "the drawing file being opened was  not created by a product from an autodesk education suite. if you save this drawing it will always be plotted with the follow plot stamp: produced by an autodesk education is recommended that you save this drawing with a different file name." but I have saved and resaved drawings, tried different extensions and still it won't plot or print without this plot stamp. What is most likely causing it and what can I do to remove it.

AutoCad :: PDF Is Being Trimmed After Publish Or Plot

Jun 15, 2012

After either publish or plot-to-pdf, the pdf sheet of one file is being shown trimmed. I have attached two images of both, the pdf result and the layout screen shot to show the problem.

For your consideration, this problem appears in both ACAD 2010 and 2012, in cpu's that otherwise publish/plot correctly to pdfs. The problem seems to be file-related.

Also, the unwanted croping seems to be some sort of frame around the drawing; however, as you can see from the layout screenshot, the Page is correctly setup as the sheet shadow includes all of the drawing intended to be printed.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Publish Drawings To PDF Landscape / Portrait?

Sep 11, 2012

We just recently updated to AutoCAD 2013 from 2011. We use Publish to create PDF files that we send to our customers. When I tried to create a PDF in 2013 some of my drawings are oriented landscape while others are oriented portrait. I went back to 2011 and used the same drawings and it created them all oriented landscape.

Am I missing a setting somewhere in 2013?

AutoCAD .NET :: Publish PDF Files To Be Used By Accoreconsole For Batch Processing

Aug 6, 2013

We have written a .Net ACAD2014 plugin to publish PDF files to be used by accoreconsole for batch processing and we have found that dates contained with the drawing are incorrectly formatted using the American date format mm/dd/yy.

Within ACAD2014 using netload and executing the command, dates contained within the title block are correctly formated using the current culture information in this case en-AU (dd/mm/yyyy).

When performiing a netload within accoreconsole the dates are formatted as en-US (mm/dd/yy) even though when reporting the current culture from within accoreconsole it is reporting as en-AU.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Plot Stamp Without Dirtying The Drawing?

May 10, 2013

Is it possible to create a plotstamp on the border of the page without dirtying the drawing?  Most solutions I've seen on the forums involve an iProperty that is updated when saved, but this would dirty the drawing, so it isn't an option.  Also, we need our plot stamp to appear outside the titleblock.  My users keep saying "make it work like AutoCAD".
