The company I currently work for imports excel data via the paste special / link method. It works fine, however when i open obviously or plot through sheet set manager specifically and someone is in the excel file i get the read only message and have to click the box in excel to either read only or notify. How can i run plots and not have to check that box?
I am having difficulty in creating a surface for my road in 3d at this section, the points given are along the center lines and so far have been fairly straight forward for the fall of the road as there have been no junction up until now.
I am not using 3dpoly at this point, just plain old lines.
Road 1 displays where i am having issues and Road 2 display how it looks in 2d format (only at an angle)
How to bring in the Finished Road Section on a longitudinal profile @ point on tie in. For example three road A, B and C are tieing in to Road X at different stations. I have profile of all the roads. and I want to change the profile of road X with reference to road A,B and C. for that I need reference road section of Road A,B and C on longitudinal profile of road X. How this can be achieved.
I am using C3D 2013, I have a corridor created using a Primary Road Full Section as my assembly, I have all the slopes and ditching set, when I go to model the corridor the ditching is not showing correctly, only small sections of the ditching are showing when I know there should be more. I have the assembly setup to build the ditching when there is less than a meter fill, but will not work.
I made an alignment of road, inserted with sample line, then i made a profile. But on the sample line on profile, there is not a data of height and lenght of profile. How to get those data in road profile. I can manually draw that, but i think there is an easier way?
I'm trying to plot routes on a road map. A monochrome map is on the background layer and the routes are to go on a transparent routes layer.
I draw the routes with the pencil tool, holding down shift to go from node to node. The pencil opacity is set to 60% so that the road names on the background layer remain visible through the route colour.
All works except that the nodes are higher in saturation than the links between. What seems to be happening is that the adjacent segments overlap at the nodes and the saturations add together.
How to colour in the routes with a consistent saturation?
I'm using autocad 2000 and I have a problem printing & plotting. The print, plot preview only shows a section of the drawing. What settings do I need to change for the entire drawing to print for the paper size I need.
I am working on parsing the psd file and saving the data as per doc of photoshop 6. I need to make an image from the layer data alone with different combinations of layers selected, visible etc... and not using the merged data section in the file.
We face the problems of generate of L section in AutoCAD 2014 LT when we appload data from notepad the same command is not working (Appload Command is not working) in the same command is working in AutoCad 2010.
I saw a youtube video "Cross Section in AutoCAD".But i could not understand how to transfer the data from excel to AutoCAD.There is a file TMaker.exe to make template of excel data.I could not find that elsewhere on net. Making earthwork x-sections with AutoCAD.
I am having a problem with my table that I insert from excel into ACAD 2010. The Data in excel is on automatic color and arial text, once imported into ACAD as ACAD entities the data in my table does not want to change to being bylayer as the cell type is set to but instead stays on white. The only way I can change the color is by entering the cell and changing it manually to bylayer.
I have been asked to write a module that will export layer data from AutoCAD and put it in an Excel spreadsheet. The user wants to have this done through a macro. I am assuming that I need to create a dll that is called from inside AutoCAD but I am not sure.
They want to start with AutoCAD 2008 and once we get it working there we will convert it to 2011 or 2012.
First of all, I can not find the 2008 API and second of all I'm not sure where to start. I am very experienced at programming. We are going to use VB.NET.
When trying to insert a table linked to an Excel 2010 file, it works up until row 28, however, as soon as I add a 29th row to the table it no longer inserts the table. When I try and insert it, I press ok and nothing happens. I tried inserting it as a smaller table and changing the data link to a bigger range after it was inserted, it just didn't update to a larger range.
Is there a way of getting this to work without having to insert it as two different tables?
I am trying to create multiple block missing in our database, actually i have all the measurement of the fitting inside excel this is mostly elbow and T fitting.
I was thinking of a dynamic block with editable lenght (strech parameter with a mix of constraint). but before digging too deep in a wrong direction i want to ask community if something similar already exist?
I have some soil boring data captured, in the field, to an Excel spreadsheet; basically, a bore site ID and coordinates.
I'd like to be able to have the coordinate attributes of blocks inserted into my bore site plans populate automatically, perhaps based off of the value of a bore site ID attribute which is manually entered for each bore site.
Alternatively, if there were a way to insert the bore site blocks based off the actual Excel records, populating all attributes and locating the block by the actual X,Y,Z coordinate, that might be even better.
