I'm trying to place some pictures (.jpeg, bitmap, whatever) onto an inventor drawing but it won't let me. I see when you create a sketch in a drawing there is an "image" option in the insert tab, however this option is always grayed out for me no matter what I try.
The way I insert pictures on a drawing now is just to create a part, put the image as a decal on that part and create a view in a drawing with a shaded view. However with this option the lighting shows up and kills the image quality and it seems too complicated to be the correct way.
I am trying to insert OS Tiles into a drawing using the insert x-ref command. I have managed to insert 192 tiles but still need to add 29 more tiles to complete. When I try to insert another x reference AutoCAD just goes into a continual loop. Have to force AutoCAD to crash after ten minutes.
I am using AutoCAD 2014 MAP and have just had a new system built (i5 processor, 8GB RAM).
When inserting a jpeg into a drawing is it possible to insert it via it's center point? I am inserting utillity drawings on to an OS background and if i could insert via the center point it would save me a lot of time.
I've created a set of templates, A3, A2, A1 A0 etc.
When I open the .dwt at A0 it is fine, the correct dimensions for A0, everything is how it should be.
Now, when I'm in a drawing and go on the tabs, right click, "From Template", select the A0 template and it opens a new tab as normal.
However, the paper size is correct, A0. But the actual frame with the attributes is very small in the cornet, about 25 times smaller, so I'm thinking units, mm to inches, but all the INSUNITS are set to 6.
I want to insert arrows into an idw. I usually use 'Leader Text' then leave the text blank.
The only problem with this method is it leaves a small horizontal or vertical line at the 'text' end of the arrow. Is there a way to get rid of this or is there an alternative way of inserting an arrow?
Autodesk Inventor Professional 2011 Windows 7 Enterprise, 64-bit
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.
I have created linework using the line by object tool. I have created a surface and am trying to add breaklines by selecting some of this linework. Once I try to create the breaklines, it says that all those breaklines contain errors and have not inserted them into the drawing.
I would like to be able to collect information from a drawing via a sub-form and then insert a block with attributes (populated with collected info) into another open drawing. The insert operation would be launched from a button on my sub form.
Is this possible?
From the code below I attempted a test to simply select a point from another open drawing but was not successful. However, once I closed both forms the target drawing file is activated.
Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click Me.Hide() Dim docMgr As DocumentCollection = Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.DocumentManager Dim i As Integer = 0 For Each doc As Document In docMgr
I am using Autocad 2012, I made a drawing frame template up in model space, then saved it into the DWT template folder, when I go into Layout and into insert to insert the template it will not show up.
I reloaded the DWT template back into model space and saved it as a DXF and I am able to insert the dxf template in Layout using the insert Block.
I can get the job done by using the dxf template but I would like to be able to insert the DWT template.
I’m having a user profile issue on one computer. I have a user, using windows 7 and AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014 on his work station. When using Civil 3D he has two issues: one, he cannot import Dgn’s. I’ve tried everything it just won’t work. Second, he cannot xref or insert PDF’s into a drawing. Now the reason why I say this is a profile issue is because if I log on to his computer (or anyone else log’s on his computer), I can do all those things in Civil 3D, import DGN’s & insert/xref PDF’s. If this user log’s on my computer, he can do all those things in Civil 3D. Import DGN’s & insert/xref PDF’s. Something with his profile on his computer is corrupt and I’m trying to fix it without deleting and creating another user profile.
