AutoCad 2D :: Dimensions Are Exploded Automatically In Some Of Drawings?

May 28, 2008

For some reason my dimensions are exploded automatically in some of my drawings. (The arrows and lines are not connected) Only certain drawings though-other drawings are perfectly fine. I've tried pasting dimensions into the drawings and that doesn't work!!

AutoCad :: Exportlayout Dimensions Are Large And Exploded

Feb 11, 2013

When I try the "Exportlayout" command with Autocad, some of my dimension are exploded and scaled, scaled much larger then is needed. Autodesk help says the following: "Dimensions that exceed the boundaries of the layout viewport are exploded." So I've been looking at this, but it is not the solution. At least thats how I see it. The dimensions are clearly not exceeding the boundarie of the layout viewport and therefore should act normal.

AutoCAD LT :: Exploded Dimensions In 2014 Changing Appearance?

Oct 31, 2013

We recently added one license of LT 2014, and the Explode command works differently than before with dimensions.

Using the standard filled arrowhead, the arrows now explode into unfilled triangles.  In past versions it's always exploded into the filled arrowhead, just like it was when created. 

Can't find any option to alter the way Explode works.

I just switched from Autocad 2007 to 2013. In 2007, when you move your mouse cursor on a vertice of a selected geometry, a rectangle for example, Autocad will automatically display the dimension of the geometry. This features seems to have been turned off by default. How to turn it back on?

AutoCad :: Adding Dimensions To Drawings?

Jun 12, 2011

I am using it for producing 2D drawings for some simple prototyping.

I am having trouble with two things - Adding dimensions for when I print the image. At the moment I can add dimensions using the constraint tool but I cant seem to find a way to add concise dimensions specifically for printing.

Also is there a feature or a format that I can make 2d images specifically for printing? Perhaps there is a file format?

AutoCad :: Adding Dimensions To Drawings

Mar 27, 2011

I am having a problem when adding dimensions to my drawings.

The problem is when adding either radius dimension or diameter dimension. When adding dimensions to circles the dimension line goes right through the middle of the circle rather than just touching the edge.

AutoCAD LT :: Updating Drawings - Dimensions Changing

Jul 19, 2012

I am currently updating company drawings from one template to another. I am using the copy and paste method. What I am noticing is that when I copy the part and the dimension from the original drawing ( all in 3 place dimensioning) to the new template Autocad is changing the dimensions to 4 place dimensions. First question is why is this happening and second question is can it be stopped?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Adding Dimensions Into Drawings At Will?

May 19, 2013

I am new to inventor and from a Solidworks background so parts are similar to me.  

I am also new to my workplace and part of my job is to clean up and produce some of our CAD files.  We are missing drawings from design documentation and I have decided to start there.

How do am I able to add Dimensions into .idw files other than the  Retrieve dimensions function?

In other words how can I add dimensions at will?

AutoCad :: Make Dimensions Stay Associative In All Drawings?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Depth / Height Dimensions In Drawings

Jun 8, 2012

DRAWINGS: I need to prepare a plan view of a complex part, which incorporates many different (parallel) heights. In the drawing, all of these faces are parallel to the plane of the drawing itself. There are far to many of them to show their heights using section views. The usual drawing convention in this case is to simply indicate each face on the drawing, and then express its height relative to a reference plane.

Until now, I have been doing this simply by measuring a height from the part, and then indicating it on the drawing by adding leaders and text, which:

1. Is extremely laborious
2. Obviously has no intelligent link to the actual part/drawing

My breadth of knowledge in CAD is not huge, but I know that in Gibbscam, for example, after setting the position of the origin in 3 planes, if I then pass the cursor over any parallel plane in the z direction while pressing alt, I will get the distance of that plane from z=0.

What I want is the possibility in Inventor to select a face in a drawing, which is in the same plane as the drawing, and straight away be given it's height relative to a parallel reference plane. Such a value should then update intelligently on the drawing if I modify that same height on the part.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Publish And Automatically Load All Open Drawings?

Sep 20, 2011

I don't remember ever using this checkbox on the Publish dialog box but today i want to and i can't figure out how to make it work. The help file ~seems~ to say that if i select this, the contents of all open documents (layouts and/or model space) are automatically loaded.... but they don't.

I know i can pick the Add Sheets button and manually select all the drawings i have open but doesn't that defeat the purpose of this checkbox?

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Rotate Text On Retrieved Dimensions In Drawings

Jan 30, 2012

I frequently use tolerance and fits when modelling and retreive them to use them in drawings. The text on these dimensions is always horizontal .  Any time I have vertical dimension on drawings (e.g. several diameters in a stepped bore) the horizontal text  takes up way too much real estate.  e.g. 18.0000 g6 (17.999 17.998)

I would like to align the text to the dimension lines (i.e. text vertical in this case) In Properties Rotate is greyed out.  Is there a way to keep my retrieved dims and have them aligned with the dim lines in the drawing?

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic - Add Reference Brackets To All Dimensions For A List Of Drawings

Apr 2, 2013

I already have a code below that will read a bunch of drawing filenames that will go into each drawing, save the drawing, (print the drawing but I have this disabled for now,) close it, then move onto the next one.

What I want to do is add reference brackets around every dimension on each drawing. I have managed to update part list styles before using ilogic but I am not sure if it is possible with dimensions.

question = MessageBox.Show("Are you sure you want to update multiple drawings? If so, make sure all drawings are checked out.", "Batch Drawing Update",MessageBoxButtons.YesNo,MessageBoxIcon.Question)

'set condition based on answer
If question = vbNo
Exit Sub
End If

A client wants to modify vector drawings automatically via database, preferably Microsoft Sharepoint Server running SQL. The modifications could be as simple as changing the color of a flag or overlay or as complicated as changing object dimensions and appearance.

I'm thinking SVG, but is there a more efficient method, something that can modify Illustrator files directly?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Exploded Blocks Way Too Big

May 14, 2013

I am inserting some mechanical changes into my master drawing (updating my as built drawing). I copy with base point the hvac changes, I paste into the master drawing and all is cool; the block looks fine. When I explode the block, the text and some hvac blocks (like elbows with attribute) are way out off scale, like way bigger than they should be.I don't get it.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Exploded Text Keeps Disappearing

Jul 16, 2013

I'm using AutoCAD 2013.  I need to explode text so that it will appear as line work, otherwise my surveying instrument won't display it. 

When i use the express tools explode text command, the text disappears, this message is shown in the command bar

"The line objects have been placed on layer 0."

However, there is nothing on layer zero. Might this have something to do with missing shape files, or can AutoCAD only explode certain simple forms of text?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Edit Exploded Views

Jul 11, 2012

How to edit the explode steps in an explode file?  I have created an exploded view of an assembly, only I have edited the assembly by adding a whole bunch of fasteners etc.  Now I want to go into the explode file and add the extra components to the related exploded steps - only there is no steps to add the new components too, each component is on its own.  The functionality I am talking about is a sw thing and there is probably another process to do this, or a work around.
