AutoCAD 2013 :: Red Circles When Hatching?

Mar 15, 2013

When a co-worker is trying to hatch using pick point, multiple red circles start appearing and choke up the program. He is not even picking inside the area where these gap indication circles are appearing. I have had him adjust the hatch gap tolerance but am wondering if I can turn off this behavior entirely?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Hatching Using Hplayer Command?

Jun 27, 2013

i use the hplayer command which changes the layer when i open the hatch command. i am sure when i closed it in the past it then changes the layer back to my current layer. now it gets stuck on my 'hatch' layer and i have to manually change the layer to 'current'.

is there a reactor or is it part of the command?

AutoCAD 2013 :: 2013 Hangs On Start?

Jun 19, 2012

Splash screen shows components loading, until it gets to LAYERS ("Preparing working environment.... LAYERS") and it just hangs.

I've tried doing a repair; uninstalling and re-installing. Nothing works.

The program was working fine for months and it just started doing this. No new hardware or software has been installed. Even did a system restore to a time when I know it was working, in case there was some Windows or driver update.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Associative Hatching - Variable Setting

Oct 17, 2013

I have custom pull down menus that I use for hatching.  The reason I use this method instead of the tool pallet or the regular hatch toolbar is that I have quick access to multiple commonly used hatch patterns already set up with scales and directions and can pick multiple objects at once. 

The only problem is I loose the associativity when stretching an object.  It's Associative if I use the hatch command or the tool pallet.  I had no problem with this method when using AutoCAD 2010.  Is there some system variable setting that has changed?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Hatching From FG To Top Of Pipes - 2013

Feb 28, 2013

Is there a way for C3D 2013 to automatically hatch (with a style) in the profile view the area from the FG to top of pipes (Sanitary, Storm or Water). Currently we go old school with isolating the linework in the profile and hatching it manually. The interesting thing is the hatch still recognizes the grid in the profile view even though we've frozen the grid and other linework. AND we must put a line on the top of the pipe, or the hatching goes to the next "grid" of the profile.

Would be nice to get it to generate the hatch much the same way it does for the profile view with Cut area or Fill area or Multi boundaries.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Any Way To Turn Off Selecting Xrefs When Hatching?

Mar 13, 2013

I am accidentally selecting the xref when hatching and thought I remembered a setting or something to where you could make it where the xref couldn't be selected when hatching? I know the work around. Just unload the xref and then hatch, just thought their was a setting for this.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Hatching Multiple Tool Palette Boundaries

Jul 3, 2012

I like that in the hatch command, you can select multiple boundaries at a single time, hit ok, and be done with your hatching. However, when hatching from the tool palette, you can only select one boundary at a time, forcing you to constantly repeat the command. Is there a system variable that controls this type of behavior for the tool palette?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Disable Live Hatching With Internal Point

Mar 15, 2013

If it would be possible to disable the hatch previewing in AutoCad 2013 when you are creating it by clicking internal points, because it makes really slow the hatching work for my machine and sometimes i have to close AutoCad because it freezes.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2013 - Hangs On Startup

Looks like something to do with 360 is cause C3D2013 to hang on startup.  I have to kill the AcSettingSync.exe service to in Resource Monitor to make 2013 un-freeze.

AutoCAD 2013 :: 2013 To 2014 Hatch Pattern File Migration?

Jul 1, 2013

I have been migrating dozens and dozens of .pat files from one version of AutoCAD to the next for many, many versions.  Most recently in AutoCAD 2013 the .pat files were stored in the C:Program FilesAutodeskAutoCAD 2013SupportPatterns - worked fine.  During the migration to 2014 I received an install error report stating that this subdirectory did not exist and could not be created.  Alternately it stated that the new default path C:UsersUsernameAppDataRoamiongAutodesk|AutoCAD 2014R19.1enuSupport will be used instead.

At first I created the Patterns subdirectory where it could not be done automatically.  No luck. Then I placed the Patterns subdirectory in C:UsersUsernameAppDataRoamiongAutodesk|AutoCAD 2014R19.1enuSupportPatterns and no luck.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2013 Hangs At Splash Screen?

Sep 4, 2012

Just installed product design suite 2013 without issue, however when I try to run Inventor 2013 it hangs at the splash screen.

The only way to exit is to kill the Inventor process. Other applications with in the design suite run fine ACAD, Fusion etc.

I did read a post about a windows security update causing this, but I do not have the offending update loaded so it can't be this.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Copy Settings And Toolbars From 2013 To 2014?

Dec 20, 2013

Happens every year.  Upgrade and spend half a day or more trying to get everything back to the way I had it.  All I have is a couple small toolbars for commands that are several clicks deep in the ribbons and I want them "right there" all the time.

I thought Autodesk 360 might be a good tool for this.  All it did was DOWNLOAD some old settings and destroy one of the toolbars I'd created.  They really need an override in there to specify upload, download, overwrite or don't.

I'm trying to migrate (I guess that's the technical term) my settings from 2013 Mechanical to 2014 Mechanical.  It's probably too late already, after 360 did its deal, but I really want to get this down so we don't go through it every year anymore.

I maintain that PTC had this part of it down Pro/ENGINEER.  You had a config file that was editable plain text.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2013 Hangs While Rendering Model With Decals

Apr 3, 2013

I'm using Autodesk Inventor Pro 2013.

I have a middle complexity model, with several decals (,jpg, Using Mask), projected to different parts. When I start Studio, and start rendering, Inventor hangs. The render window opens, but it freezes on Translating and soon both of the windows are not answering. I've checked th CPU. Inventor uses around 1G of ram, during regular use. When I start rendering, slowly it goes up around 5,5G, and eventually the Windows freezes. Rendering the same model without a decal works fine.

I've installed all the Windows updates, and the Inv2013 1.1 Service Pack. Nothing worked.

AutoCAD 2013 :: DWG Loads To 75% Then Hangs - Causes Message / Memory Low / Loss Of Work

Feb 8, 2013

I was placing final touches on paper space viewports (changing transparency settings etc), after wrapping that up, saved. Then tried to Publish.  That's where things went downhill, drawing/publishing froze, forced to restart, now the drawing only loads to ~68 - 75% and hangs / freezes.  Eventually, I get a message box stating that AutoCAD physical memory low, continuing will result in data loss.  Task Manager claims AutoCAD is running @ ~98% (650Mb).

I can upload the drawing to AutoCAD WS and open it on my iPhone/iPad, but the 3D viewports are limited in detail.

Tried opening on a MAC and the same thing happens.
Tried clearing the Cachemax/cachemaxtotal, still nothing...

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2013 - Drawing Hangs On Opening (Upgrading COGO Points)

On opening a C3D 2013 drawing, C3D hangs for about 5 minutes.  At the bottom of the screen is the message: "Upgrading COGO points".  This drawing is only 974KB. 

The drawing is being opened from a network . I tried saving it on a local hard drive.  That had no effect.

Dec 13, 2012

i am having a hatching issue, it seems no matter what hatch pattern i use and what hatch scale, alot of the hatch looks solid instead of the pattern i want, for example i am using currently ANSI37 @ Annotative with a scale of .20 and on the same paperspace page one plan with the hatch shows the cross hatching and the other one below looks solid (see attached) now i can go and say change the hatch scale and it reverts to the cross hatching, but then when i zoom out it goes back to "solid" is it a graphical issue?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Incompatibility Between 2013 And 2014?

I have problem with compatibility this two versions of civil 3D. Files created in C3D 2013 then modified in 2014 don't want to open in C3D 2013. Files contain many civil objects: shortcuts, corridors. During opening occurs fatal error.

There is no problem with files which were created in C3D 2014 from the begining only modified in C3D 2014.

AutoCAD 2013 :: ESC On Lsp Dialog Box Freezes 2014

Dec 12, 2013

I'm running AutoCAD 2014 (part of AutoCAD Structural Detailing 2014), & it occasionally freezes on me. I haven't figured out how to reproduce it regularly yet, but it is somewhat predictable. When I run a list routine that opens a dialog box, if I press Escape immediately after the dialog box appears, AutoCAD quits responding & I have to force it to close with the task manager. It doesn't always happen, but it has become a semi-regular event. I've previously used AutoCAD 2010 Mechanical & AutoCAD 2012 (part of Structural Detailing 2012) before with the same routines on this machine with no issue.

Computer Specs:

Dell Inspiron 560

Windows 7 Professional x64

Pentium E6700 3.2 GHz


NVidia GeForce 8400GS

AutoCAD 2014 doesn't seem to be noticably more resource intensive than 2012 was, so I don't think that's my issue. I'm just trying to make a habit of saving more often & not accidentally running the wrong command.
