i've been plaing with my CUI and found there were a lot more visual styles than i thought so added a few to the dashboard to try out. trouble is, a few have similar names and the same icon and now my realistic that i liked is not available.
now it's kinda semi-transparent.... before it was totally opaque. the same with my 'conceptual'...i can see far too much geometry.
btw i don't have a personal CUI or whatever the procedure is....i just modify the main one when inclined.
i've made a toolabr with ALL the listed visual styles on it and gone through them all but none of them gets it back to the opaque version.
^^^ this is in model space only. viewing from paper space it's the same as it always was.
I am looking for a way to change the text style used by a table style with Visual LISP. So far I have been able to get the IAcadTableStyle object from the acad_tablestyle dictionary, but there is no property for text style. Is this even possible? Code and results are below.
Is there a way to programatically set a visual style before a drawing actually opens?
We have some huge models and people seem to forget to change their visual styles back to 2D wireframe before saving and exiting drawings. Some models will crash on some workstations when trying to open in a rendered mode.
I found a lisp with a function that looked to set viewport visual styles. But it does not seem to be supported anymore. --> (vla-put-VisualStyle vport 1)
I opened a file I had been working on yesterday on a different Mac, and got the error message: "3D functionality is currently disabled due to OpenGL being disabled." I am currently using MacBook Pro (2008), running Mac OS 10.9, using PhotoShop CC. I've already looked at Ps Preferences>Performance and I see this.
My company just got all new computers and upgraded out AutoCAD to 2012 from 2009. And every single drafter has complained to me that the new Array is terrible. Basically, it seems to take 10 times as long to set up and array as it used to and now it's linking all of the objects together as a group which is absolutely terrible for what we do especially when we are making 4 or 5 columns or hundreds of objects. I cant find any classic or legacy array commands.
This really needs to be put back in because right now everyone is asking us to put AutoCAD 2009 back on the computers, and the whole reason we bought new PCs is because they couldn't run anything after 2009 without being too slow to be productive.
the new Xara Pro X9, but did happen to notice... Is there any way to get the old style drawing back like Xara Xtreme 2? In Xara Pro X9, it seems you have to drag a line to make one, where in the older versions it was click a point move click another point and it draws a line between them, it was much easier to draw lines and bend them on the fly with the older version, or am I missing a step with the new software.
I accidentally deleted the side (left side default) tool bars and how do i get them back?? I cant find the buttons in the main toolbar (top).I got the properties toolbar back but i am still wondering how to get the level toolbar back(that shows you all the different views)
I have finished the 3d interior completed with lighting and everything. Set Visual Style to Realistic. Is it normal that the drawing would turns to only wireframe during the action of 3d Orbit and 3dwalk? Is there a way to change the setting?
I use the hidden visual style when I plot my MEP drawings and I keep having this issues (sometimes it's worse than others) of piping that is on a layer that is off/frozen still blocking a visible line.
It looks like there are wipeout's going over my pipes when in fact it is a pipe not shown.
I have this old lisp routine that I have been using for quite a while and it works and loads just fine, however I would like to open it to see/edit the code... when I open in Notepad however it opens with wierd symbols... How to get this back into normal text?
I have Revit MEP 2012 and created a small guest house in this program. I wanted to add some features using Revit Architecture 2011that are not available in the MEP program. When I tried to bring the files up in the Revit architecture program I get an error message that the drawing was created in a later version of Revit. Is there any way to save the MEP file back to an earlier version of Revit like one could do with Autocad drawings?
If I make a3d part, turn on the sky-background and illuminationand render the part AutoCAD does something odd. It defaults to perspective view and activates sky-background andillumination every time I save, or switch from a layout tab to model space. How doI get it to default to parallel view and 2d wireframe?
How does one display obscured lines using different linetypes in the 2D wireframe setting under visual style settings. I need to adjust this setting to view all drawings as 2D wireframes in the viewports in all layouts for more accurate dimensioning (which I do in paperspace)?
I like "Shaded with edges", and I want the edges black. I have set up the display to this setting in Application Options, Display tab (Use application Settings), and Settings button. Excellent, that's nice. (I have also mapped the num pad 6 to that style, along with 5 is Shaded with hidden edges, and 4 is wire frame).
However, In Inventor 2014 Dynamic simulation, the visual style defaults to "Shaded" (no edges). Ok, i can live with that, I guess. I'll just hit NumPad 6 and it looks good again.
Ctrl-Tab to another open file, make a change or two, come back to the DynSim and - hang on, where are my edges? I can just hit 6 again, but should I have to? I haven't ever seen this display property changed when changing between files before.
