AutoCAD 2010 :: Import Raster Image Into A Drawing
May 22, 2012
I have imported a raster image into a drawing and it has a border around the exterior of the picture. When I plot it the exterior line shows up as a line and I want it to not show up on the plot. Is this possible?
I have a small raster image (png) xrefed to an Autocad 2012 dwg. The image is on its own layer and the transparency of the layer is set to 60%.
When I select TPY the image displays correctly on the screen (i.e. semi-transparent). When I tick Plot transparency in the Plot dialog box and send the plot to our HP Designjet 800 the raster image prints exactly as I want (semi-transparent).
However when I use the Autodesk pdf writer (Dwg to pdf) the resulting pdf does not have the semi transparent appearance and the raster image appears in all its brilliant color even though it displays correctly (i.e. semi-transparent) in Print Preview. And, yes, I have ticked the Plot transparency box before seeing it to the pdf writer. Other autocad entities such as plines which are semi transparent are fine, its only the raster image that seems to lose its semi-transparent quality.
Can I attach a raster image so it is part of a drawing and travels with it. If so, how do I do it? I realize it would increase file size. I often add reference .jps to my drawings for the shop. I'd like to be sure that when the file is moved to a different folder or archived it includes the image.
I'm having a small problem in AutoCAD 2012. I can't get any grips on any inserted raster image Cpipping Boundary I try to edit. I can select the edge and the line turns into a dashed line, however no grips. The grips work fine on any vector line. Is there a comand to turn on the grips?
I want to rename the RasterImage Files to Match the Drawing Naming Convention Plus a Suffix.
In this case _A, _B, _C etc.
And update that in the Drawing.
Public Shared Sub RenameRasterImagesAndReattachToDrawing(ByVal FilePath As String) Dim sNewName As String = "" Dim iImg As Integer = 0 Dim Suffix As String = "A" Dim myDwgIO As New IO.FileInfo(FilePath) 'Get FileName from Full FilePath '<<<1.

When I save my autocad drawing with hatches as a PDF and open it in illustrator, it makes everything extremely slow, probably because the hatch is converted into separate lines in illustrator. What can I do to get around this?
I tried to open it as a dwg file as well, but it didn't work.
I am having an issue with Autodesk Map 3D 201164 bit and Autocad Raster Design 64 bit. Everytime we insert a raster file into a drawing.The laptop freezes. I really thought it was because we were using XP 32 bit. We got an error message that we did not have enough RAM. After doing some research on this forum, I updated to Windows 7.
We have a raster drawing that we're trying to vectorize using Raster Tools within Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite (Civil 3d) 2014. However the process is slow going having to convert each line within the raster drawing manually. Is there a way that Raster Tools can automatically vectorize all lines within the drawing instead of picking each and every line?
In the old days (15years ago) we scanned a lot of files to DXB, and simply imported the image into the .DWG as small objects. (I believe they were treated as polyline segments).
Now, I am forced to Import a TIFF and "embed" the object (if I want it to be a permanent part of the drawing), and edit it with separate programs like Raster Design. How to convert a "embedded raster image" into a DXB image?
The scanner used to do the work for me and save the image as DXB.It was not a "vectorization program", but the raster lines became small (not joined) polyline segments in the process.I don't want to "vectorize" with a separate program, because then it just "traces" with a zero-width polyline.The old scanner used to save to DXB, now I don't even see that as an option.
Any words of wisdom about creating a "scan" that can become "objects" (even small dots) INSIDE the DWG file, instead of a "Raster Image" that has to be xref'ed or "embedded", and will not even plot to a DXB or HPGL format?
I am using ACAD 12 and am trying to obtain a TIFF image of my drawing, but the linewidths do not seem to be registering. I know this because if I change the output device to PDF or to our printer, they show up (and show up in the preview), but when TIFF is selected, all linewidths seem to revert to 0.0000. Any thoughts? I am plotting in B/W exclusively.
well i have a problem on solving an autoCAD homework . i have a pdf with the contours of the altitude of an area and i have to rasterize it as an image in AutoCAD 2006 (i put it on windows paint , then i save it as an img (jpg) ) and then i inserted it in AutoCAD. I have to georeference that image and to fix its scale. How can i do that ?
How can I make a raster image transparent? I would like to see image #2 below image #1 by making image #1 semi-transparent. I can make one specific color in the image transparent..I am working from a scanned image in jpeg format. I would think it should be easy because any Microsoft Office program can do it. I have searched through multiple Autodesk discussion boards to no avail.
I have a problem with a drawing, containing aerial images.
If I try to plot it as PDF, using "Adobe PDF" or "PDF-Creator" as printer, I see green areas in my PDF. Here the result:
If I use the AutoCAD Printer "DWG to PDF.pc3", there is no problem. Here the result:
For the creating of PDF files I can use the AutoCAD printer, that is no problem, but I have the same Problem if i try to plot a drawing with aerial images on a Plotter (HP 1050C) or any other printer in our office.
I'm having an issue where the more I zoom into a drawing that has a raster image (a 1mb jpg) in it, regenerating times become increasingly long until the whole program just freezes. When I zoom back out, it's fine.
I've tried changing the file type, saving it with a different program, lowering the quality to Draft, zooming in on an area that the raster image wasn't in, lowering the DPI of the image, nothing works. I've spent the last two hours searching Google for a fix, found nothing. The only thing that seems to work is if I put the image on a layer and freeze it. The problem there is, I'm tracing over the image, so it being invisible makes it rather difficult to work with.
I'm still learning some of the basics in the AutoCAD Map features. Most of my work has been using a map that is connected to data. My raster image is connected to a Sid file which covers more area than I usually need to work with.
What is the best way to work with a small area at a time? I cannot seem to imageclip the connected raster image.
Running AutoCAD 2004, XP Pro...I have inserted our company logo into the title block as a Raster image. The logo is png, and I have tried retaining the path and not retaining the path with the same result. After saving this as a template, I reopen as new sheet to start a drawing and the logo is now the path name.
