AutoCAD .NET :: VISRETAIN Not Work With ReadDwgFile

Aug 12, 2011

Create a dwg with a xref, set VISRETAIN to 1. Freeze some layer and change color for some layer of the xref. Save the file.Next time when you open the file those layers should stay at the same status as you saved.

Now try to open the dwg with DATABASE.ReadDwgFile(). Make some change if you want then save the dwg with DATABASE.SaveAs(). Open the dwg in ACAD and see if those layer stay at the same status as you saved.

On my computer I can see the DATABASE.VISRETAIN property is TRUE after ReadDwgFile(),  but xref status can't be retained after the dwg been saved by DATABASE.SaveAs().

AutoCAD .NET :: Display Of Proxygraphics When Saving Dwg Using ReadDwgFile?

Dec 4, 2013

I want to handle multiple DWG files containing MagiCAD proxy elements.

An easy and very fast method is to access the files using the ReadDwgFile
Database db = new Database(false, true);using (db){
db.ReadDwgFile(dwgfile.FullName,FileOpenMode.OpenForReadAndAllShare,true,null); // open the dwg file
And then save the files using:
db.RetainOriginalThumbnailBitmap = true; // retains thumbnail previw imagedb.SaveAs(dwgfile.FullName, true, DwgVersion.AC1024, null);

However, when using this method, the display of MagiCAD proxy entities are not saved. The DWG fil still contains the proxy entities, it's just the AutoCAD representation of the elements that have been altered.

Is there a method to handle 3rd party applications when using the .ReadDwgFile?

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 :: Annotative Blocks Work In MEP But Don't Work In Vanilla

Sep 29, 2011

All of my block updates work just fine when I use them in MEP 12, but we have a couple of drafters working in vanilla AutoCAD & for some reason the same commands/ blocks/ settings (same exact file even) that work in MEP do not work in regular ACAD.

Now they do "work" - the commands/ block insertion - but the annotative adjustment (i.e. 1/4" to 1/8" to etc) do not work until I select the block and add the desired scale to its annotative object scale list - why is this necessary? it isn't in MEP? The blocks work/ act properly annotatively once inserted and adjusted as mentioned above, but again, why? Why? Why is this necessary? All of the scale are in the block file as it resides in my block folder...?

In Photoshop CS5 some of the functions on 64 bit do not work, but everything seems to work on 32 bit.  I have not searched for all the functions that don't work on 64 bit. I just use the 32 bit program, but I would like to know why the 64 bit program doesn't work right.  I would like to be able to use it.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: How To Get Query To Work

Sep 14, 2012

Although I use Civil 3d 2013, I have never used the map 3d program. I have GIS data and need to perform queries but I can't seem to figure out how to get a query to work.

I have the drawing open and the data is displayed. On the Task Pane I right click on "Current Query" and choose "Define". On the "Define Query of Attached drawing" dialog under "Query Type" I want pick "Data" which opens the "Data Condition" dialog. At this point you can choose Object Class, Object Properties, Database Link, Object Data or attribute. When I pick any of these options I get a "No Tables Found" message at the bottom of the dialog box (with the exception of Attribute). I'm therefore left with nothing to pick for the Object Data Fields.

AutoCAD VB :: DVB File - Subs Do Not Work

Sep 15, 2011


We have a .dvb file that we load on startup.

It does some things on the begin save event.

When I bring up the VBAIDE, I can see the few subs that do the work but what I'm wondering is:

Is there or can there be other code within the .dvb file that I'm not seeing in the AutoCAD VBIDE?

In other words, it there the possibility of some other compiled code inside the .dvb that does things in the background that isn't visible in the code window?

AutoCAD 2013 :: How Linetypes Work

Jun 10, 2013

I must be missing something on how Linetypes Work. I created a folder where I store all my shape files for linetypes, and added it as both a support file search path and a working support file search path. I tried to provide as much information as I could with the images below. When I try to bring in a linetype I constantly get a bad definition error. proper way to store and implement Linotype standards.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Default DXF Does Not Work?

Feb 9, 2012

There is a bug in inventor 2012, where the default dxf version does not apply. It's not a huge issue, but it's quite annoying. Basically, when saving a dxf, I need to change the dxf version each time, regardless of what the default version is (which I've set to 2004). In order to import the files into my cam software (for CNC), it needs to be the Autocad 2004 DXF, so every time I need to save a dxf, I need to go to options and press finish.

AutoCad :: CTRL+key Combos Don't Work

Apr 3, 2013

I'm using CTRL+V and CTRL+C (the only combos I use, and I use them all the time). They don't work now. None of the combos with CTRL do. I went to the customize keyboard menu and those combos are all nicely set up. I re-set them up, reassigning the same combos to the same functions. I got out of AutoCAD and back in. I regenerated the drawing. Nothing. I did notice that those functions, which are used in many programs, DO work in MS Word and Outlook. What did I do now?

AutoCad :: Properties Boxes Won't Work?

Mar 23, 2011

im running AutoCAD 2010 as part of a Inventor Package and everything was working fine until i installed the Inventor 2011 ......(it was to try to sort something else out as the new features were introduced in 2011, but because of work policy were stuck using 2010......isn't work grand)

Ive uninstalled 2011 without anything going wrong with Inventor 2010 but its AutoCAD 2010 im having trouble with

If i create anything (could be a line or dimension) and then open the properties window or quick properties what used to be there isn't.....

- in the quick properties it says it cant define anything

- in the main properties window, instead of being able to alter the scale of the line / text & adjust lengths etc, the fields have been replaced, at the bottom of the fields are UCS co-ordinates initially i thought it was because installing 2011 has corrupted the files or done something weird and wonderful to them so ive tried:

-Reinstalling - Without Uninstalling the original AutoCAD 2010
-Reinstalling - With Unistalling the original AutoCAD 2010

Im running a XP 64bit machine with the latest service pack

Ill get a screenshot to add tomorrow to make it clear what im on about.

AutoCad :: Shortcut Commands Won't Work

Mar 21, 2012

one of the pc at my work place seemed to be working funny, compared to the other pc.

For example, the command CO won't work, but instead i have to type CC to copy. The command MA doesn't work at all, and i don't know how to match properties.

Along the way, there are other commands that I encounter before. Basically, it jus feels funny for this PC.

Is there any way to restore every single setting without re-installing the autocad?

AutoCad :: Work With Text Command

Mar 23, 2013

I have a doubt with the new text command. When i worked in Autocad2002, i could write my text directly in the command line, for example i could paste in a row all the options, followed by the text, but now i have to insert the text near the cursor after i insert the options...

It's possible to work with the text command like in Autocad2002 in the new versions? Writing all in the command line?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Can MEP And Fusion Work With One Another

Nov 21, 2013

I'm having some problems with inventor fusion and autocad mep.I have a solid object that i would like to edit in inventor but i get the unknown command error when entering editinfusion

I went through the cuiload and loaded the cuix. file and now the icon editinfusion shows up on the ribbon. After selecting a solid object and clicking on the icon i get the same error message.

So i went to AutoCAD 2013 (not MEP) and did the same thing and it worked.

My question is, can MEP and fusion work with one another or does this strickly have to be AutoCAD and Fusion?

I seem to have succesfully created a label in the label style composer, unfortunatley it doesn't want to work in paperspace? All my labels get sent into model space? It is safe to say the label works, it just doesn't want to stay in my Layout tab?
