AutoCad :: Creating A Drawing From Vector Image

Mar 25, 2013

I am in the process of sorting out some wood engraving and acid etching of some brass plaques. I would like to know if it is possible to produce a cad drawing from a vector image and if so how ?

This is one of the two images I would like to turn into a cad drawing.

GIMP :: Creating Image (GIF) By Drawing At Pixel Level

Nov 14, 2012

I am using Gimp 2.8.0 but only understand about 5% or less of it. (It is running on Win.7 Hm. Prm., Vsn 6.1, Sp-1.)

How can I define or adjust the pencil tool so it draws at the one pixel size in a new ".gif" work area. (That would be one pixel in the image to one pixel on the screen.) I found how to define the work area in pixels for a ".gif". The predefined pencil tool sizes (chosen by assorted dots) "went away" several versions of Gimp back as far as I know.

The object of this effort is to produce "TrainGifs" for use in other applications. Should you be interested just Google "TrainGifs" and you will be able to check out multiple site for this hobby.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Wrapping Image / Vector Or Vector Group Around Cylinder?

Jul 29, 2012

I am having trouble doing this in my current software, Serif Drawplus, PSE, Photoplus, (I have Gimp but haven't used it ever yet).  And I am considering buying X6 for use in other projects.  So, can x6 do this in either Photo Paint with a bitmap, or in X6 with a group of Vectors?

I want to wrap a bottle with a logo.  The mesh warps aren't working for me in the above applications, and envelope warping will not work either.  Transform-Warp is not present in PSE.  I mention that because I see a tutorial for PS using that.  How would Corel X6 Suite do this?  I am considering buying the software once some questions I have about it are cleared up.  I wish Corel would make the manual and tutorial videos public.  I'd rather download the trial for actually using it rather than trying to see if some feature is present, or a workaround for a feature a competitor has.

I am also hoping to make in this project, some 10-20 different bottles with the logo on, of different sized bottles and different rotations of the bottles.  Plan D is acquainting myself with Blender, but lets hope I don't have to go that far!

Photoshop :: Joint Two Separate Vector Images Into One Vector Image

Jan 14, 2006

I am making myself a logo in photoshop. I have made all the letters that will be used, but they are all seperate entities as most of you who have used vectors know. I would like to interconnect the letters, as well as an angel I have made to go above the letters. My question is, how can I join two seperate vector images into one vector image. For example, joining a letter E with a letter D. I wonder if theres a way to do this without having to delete part of each image and then re-draw, which is a pain. Sorry if this isn't really clear, but its hard to explain.

Illustrator :: How To Convert Vector Drawing Into Non-clipping Paths Drawing

May 5, 2013

I want to take two 3D views from (autodesk) Revit Architecture 2012 to Illustrator CS5 and then make use of the live paint bucket tool*.  I've printed the two 3D views into pdf files and imported them in Illustrator**. When I select the whole image in Illustrator and then click with the Live Paint Bucket tool on the drawing to modify the drawing so I can color the surfaces, Illustrator gives me the following error:
"The selection contains objects that cannot be converted. Live Paint groups can only contain paths and compound paths. Clipping paths are not allowed."

Exporting images (jpg, png and tiff) from Revit results in the same error. Is there a way to easily convert my vector drawing into a non-clipping paths drawing? Also I'm not sure if the problem should be found in either Revit or Illustrator. What's also strange is that I'm using a tutorial provided by my university, in which there are no issues with clipping paths or anything.
* This in order to make an conceptual image of my building, which I've modeled in Revit. I want to add basic colors to surfaces in Illustrator and then take the image to Photoshop to add shadow, materials, sky etc.

** They only consist of lines, using the 'hidden line' visual style in my views in Revit, in case you know a bit of Revit.

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Creating Multiple Vector Arrows?

Aug 15, 2012

I've been asked to create some plots of vector arrows showing the results from water current metres, ie each data point has a position (x and y only), direction and a velocity.

I have created a dynamic block to handle the vector data (a simple arrow with a stretch and rotate controls)

What I need now is to somehow read in the values for each block from an excel spreadsheet or txt file?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Importing And Constraining Vector Drawing

Apr 10, 2013

I have a vector drawing of a logo, currently in adobe illustrator format. I'd like to create a 2D sketch in Autodesk Inventor and then insert this drawing into the sketch as a shape that can only be placed and scaled.

The way I'd expect this to work is essentially that I'd get a rectangle X enclosing vector object Y, and that I'd then be able to create a fully constrained Inventor sketch by simply constraining the corners of this rectangle X. Is it possible to do something along those lines, and if so what is the best practice for it? 

What I tried, which failed, was this:

1. Converted the AI file to a .DWG file

2. Used the "Insert ACAD" command to place the file in Inventor with the Constrain End Points and Apply geometric constraints boxes checked (other boxes were unchecked)

3. Waited for a surprisingly long time for this operation to complete, maybe 30s on a 16GB 2.6GHz quad machine 

The result of this operation is that I now see my imported geometry, BUT all vectors are treated as individual shapes and I have 2637 dimensions needed.

CorelDRAW X4 :: Creating Vector Blurs

Apr 16, 2011

I have created an 18 layered object on Corel Draw X4 using vectors and I would like to make it blur and streak from the back, to create the illusion that it's actually in high motion.

I have tried looking for the answer to my question on this site and elsewhere and only find the answer if it were a bitmap, yet I don't necessarily want to transfer it into bitmap as I would like to keep the smooth edges.

Photoshop :: LOGO Needs To Be Vector Without Re-Creating It!

Dec 5, 2007

She now tells me she wants it in different sizes without pixel issues. The only way I know to do this is through vectorizing the file. Is there any way at all possible to save this file as a vector without re-creating it?

The file is a multi-layered product which I felt was a bad idea for a logo, but it's what they wanted.

I've read through googling, there are programs to do this for me. I also read somewhere where I could export the file out as a PDF and CorelDraw could do it. But does this mean tracing out the file -- and basically recreating it?

Photoshop :: Creating A Vector From Selected Pixels

Aug 2, 2008

I have drawn a vector shape and want to apply 4 colours to it. I have drawn 4 squares with the colours I want and then merged the layers so it becomes 1. I then "selected the pixels" on my shape and cut out that shape from the 4 squares of colour i created. However, when I resize my shape, it blurs as it is not vector anymore.

Is there a way to do acheive the above but keep the shape a vector?

Illustrator :: Creating 3D Puzzle Pieces With Vector Art

Jun 13, 2013

Ubiquitous Information:
Adobe Illustrator CS6 v. 16.0.3 (32-bit)
Win XP sp3 OS
I have a vector art file of puzzle pieces (connected as though the puzzle has been assembled) that I would like to use with an image file.  If I wanted the entire image to appear finished, I would simply place this vector layer above the image layer and voila...finished puzzle.  However, I would like to use the 3D effects in Illustrator to make it appear that some of the pieces are not yet seated into place.  I know how to do this with the puzzle vector art, but how do I attach or clip the image layer to it so that it rotates, bevels, etc. with the individual puzzle pieces I want to treat in this manner?

After Effects :: Creating Shapes From Vector Layers (AI Files)

Mar 18, 2013

I am trying to make extrusions to an image.  I am new to Illustrator and have read that .ai files are the only ones that you can extrude in AE.  However when I bring in an .ai file and select create shape from vector layer, a grey square covers the shape.  I am assuming that it is a transparancy issue and it is just filling in the size of the .ai project.  I could be wrong though.

Photoshop :: Vector Drawing

Nov 9, 2007

I have a minor problem - besides of not knowing anything about Vector Drawing, I also mostly use Linux at home. I have a font which I want to make part of a logo, however this logo can only be installed on Windows.

So I tought of first converting the font into a graphical image (72dpi) and then import this in my Vector Drawing application (inkscape).

However will I have a good quality logo like this. That is will I be able to change the dpi of the logo and not loose quality?

Or the best solution is to always use the font directly in the Vector Drawing application?

Btw- I understand here most probably everyone use Adobe Illustrator and I be more then happy with answers aimed for this application.

AutoCad :: Creating Drawing Standards

Sep 18, 2011

I am looking for the best ways to create a standard for all my architectural drawings namely I want to have layers set for columns, beams, wall, floor, roof, doors, windows ... to name but a few, also I want to set within the layer the object color, line type, line thickness and so on and if possible which object is on top and which is at the bottom.

Moreover, the walls can be 200mm or 150 mm thick, the columns are 200x200 or 150x150 and sometimes 150x200 and the slab is 125mm/150mm to name but a new of the possible configuration.

However, I don't want to follow an arbitrary naming, coloring or line type system. It will be best if I can follow a set standard (Example BS) that is recognized by architectural firms. Drawing Scales are usually 1:50, 1:75, 1:100 and 1:125 and on A4 paper.

Provide me with a standardized listing of architectural entities properties such as name, color, hatch and so forth. Also, what is the best procedure to follow in terms of LTSCALE with respect to layer settings.
