AutoCad :: Attach Raster Image So It Is Part Of Drawing And Travels With It

Jul 3, 2012

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.

AutoCad :: Bind Raster Image To Drawing?

Jun 22, 2011

Is there anyway to bind a raster image to a drawing?

Everytime I bind/insert my title block the images dont bind in and also the file paths get deleted. Asked most of the drafters I know and everyone says it cant be done, which is what i think.

Normally I would use a CAD version of the Logos (for the client/architect,etc.) but sometime there isnt one available so have to use raster images.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Can't Attach PDF To Drawing

Feb 22, 2012

I have Autocad Civil 3d 2011 and recently the software was corrupted so our IT guy reinstalled everything. Now when I attempt to attach a PDF I get an error box that reads

This file cannot be opened.

The problem can be caused by several things:

-  The data in the file is corrupted

-   The file is an earlier format that is no longer supported

-   The file format is not supported

Try to obtain a better copy of the file, recreate the file using

different settings, or convert the file to a supported file format.

Now before the reinstall, I never had an issue...never saw this message before and have attached hundreds of PDFs to drawing. The only thing I will add is around the time of the reinstall, I also had installed NITRO PDF software. I believe this installation came after the problems started...just cant remember, so I wanted to throw that out just in case.

AutoCAD LT :: Attach Several PDF Files Into A Drawing?

Nov 3, 2011

I'm trying to attach several .pdf files into a drawing. Files that were sent to me attach with no problem, but when I scan sheets in using an HP LaserJetPro Printer/Scanner I get the following error:

PDFATTACH - Invalid Error

The problem can be caused by several things:

-The data in the file is corrupted

-The file is from an earlier format yadda yadda

-The file format is not supported

Try to obtain a better copy of the file, recreate the file using different settings or convert to a supported file format.

When I check the properties of the files I can attach -vs- the files I can not attach, I find no difference in version, security details etc., so I'm pretty sure the problem isn't that the file isn't supported of from an earlier version. I've tried several different files from my scanner and none will attach. I have also tried scanning using different settings with no joy.

AutoCad :: Deleting All Raster Images In Drawing At Once?

Apr 20, 2011

I imported the .dwg file from ArchiCAD 12 to my AutoCAD 2008.

The problem is that, there are some dots (Autocad recognizes it as "raster image") all over the drawing. And I need to delete them manually each one of them.

Is there way I could do this automatically? Is there a way to select all the "raster images" at once, and then delete them?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Drawing Of Part Made From Driven Part

To create my new  part, i used the deriven part of another part, and used only ‘Body as work surface’ before inserting in my new part.

When I create the drawing of my new part, why is it that I still see all the ‘Body work surfaces’ of the direven part?

When I make it on my other computer  I dont see it... so it is surely an option…

AutoCAD 2010 :: Attach Image (TIFF) With No Path

May 8, 2012

Autocad 2012

When attach image (tif) with no path. is saved, de image will be saved without a path. dir. Only when we change the image (with RasterCAD) when we now save the drawing the hole path dir. will be saved.

When we used AutoCAD 2006 this will not be the case. The tiff. will stay no path. We move/copy drawing with image to other dir. very often.

... dwg/tif

... dwg/tif

.... dwg/tif

Problem is that the image will be saved in the wrong dir. 

... dwg/tif

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Raster Image Transparency

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.

AutoCad :: Attach JPEG Image Vs Embed OLE Objects In Drawings?

Oct 28, 2013

What do you think it's better between Attach JPEG image vs Embed OLE Objects in Cad Drawings? I have used OLE Object in the past and i problem i have is that, I can't rotate OLE object/image i can scale and move. i can't clip OLE obj. For Attach JPEG or PDF when someone accidently delete the JPEG which were attached out of the computer then when i open the file it will show "Not found" on the external Ref. this won't happen in OLE obj. i tried not to use either of these methods above because it increases the size of the dwg but this is how the Co Worker wants for this project. The drawing size is less than 1000KB not too bad.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Green Areas In PDF With Raster Image

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.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Raster Image Regeneration Freeze

Apr 25, 2013

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.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Raster Image Transparency

Mar 20, 2012

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.
