AutoCad :: Drawing Circles Or Moving Object Has No Image Guide?

Dec 9, 2012

I'm currently using auto cad 2000 because it's required in our class. When I make circles or move or objects there are no image guide. like when I make circles only the lines are there I still have to calculate what the diameter is rather than by simply looking how big the circle is. or when I'm connecting objects, It's very hard to connect complex objects by moving them because there is no guide to where the image is suppose to be when the mouse is at a particular place.

GIMP :: Moving Selected Area Versus Moving Selection / Moving Whole Image

Mar 22, 2012

I want to select part of an image with just one layer. Say I just flattened the image and have to move one part of. I select it with the rectangular select tool. It seems intuitive that I could then just move what I selected, but when I drag the selection, the selection itself moves without moving what is inside the selection.

If I then remember to click the move tool and try to move what's in the selection (seems to work sometimes, maybe when there's multiple layers?) the entire image moves.

The only way I can move part of the image over is if I make a selection and then cut it (ctrl X) then paste it.

How am I supposed to move part of the flattened image, is there a way I can set it to default to "When I select something, I can immediately drag that selected area around."

AutoCAD 2010 :: Drawing A Pattern Of Circles?

Jul 9, 2012

I am trying to make a hexagonal lattice of circles (1 micron dia, period - 3 microns) and exted it over a square cm in area atleast. The final objective is to make this as a mask pattern for the Laser fabrication/writer. So I create the pattern over a small area and use array command to extend it over a finite area (~500 microns or so). I then combine these points to a single block and then use the mirror command to extend it even further. But as soon as I reach an area of 2.5 mm square, the program seems to slow down and doesnt respond. I assume this is the limitation of my computing power to handle so many objects at once. (I have 4 GB RAM and 97 % is utilized at this time). Is there a way to circumvent this computing limitation, making use of some facility/command within AutoCAD?

AutoCad :: Calculating And Drawing Vehicle Turning Circles?

Jan 24, 2013

I am designing a piazza that most types of vehicles need to circumnavigate. On a scaled location plan, I would like to draw the scaled turning circles of cars and lorries - especially emergency vehicles.

I have the Metric Handbook beside me which has typical 90 degree turns drawn but it is not obvious how they were drawn in the first place.

I have all the vehicle dimensions that I need, I just need to know how to calculate and draw the geometry.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Distinguish Hole Features From Other Circles In Drawing / Add Centermarks

Sep 16, 2012

I'm attempting to use VBA to put center marks on each hole in my drawing. So far I have the following

Dim oIntent As GeometryIntent Dim oCenterOfPart As Centermark
'Add center marks to base view For Each oCurve In oBaseView.DrawingCurves '
<- need to identify Hole Features If Not oCurve.CenterPoint Is Nothing Then
If oCurve.CurveType = kCircleCurve Then 'CurveTypeEnum

[Code] .......

oBaseView is the DrawingView object representing the base view the code just placed. I also used VBA to place the projected views oTopView and oRightView. I want to add center marks to each hole when viewed from the end (as circles) and add centerlines when viewed from the top or side (as hidden lines).

I will be iterating through several models representing various handhold styles. The feet can be in many orientations, 99% of them are paralel to one of the origin planes (XY,YZ, or XZ).

This is what my code generates: (The centermarks that are selected are the ones I don't want the code to generate).  This is what I WANT the code to generate:

1) How do I distinguish whether a circle curve originated because of a hole or because of another cilindrical feature?

2) How to I identify the corresponding hidden lines in the other views so I can add a center line?

AutoCad :: Modify Drawing And Add Dimension Annotation - Small Circles Highlighted In Yellow

Aug 18, 2011

I found a strange behavior of AutoCAD. When I was modifying a drawing and adding dimension annotation, there suddenly come some small circles as highlighted in yellow in the screenshot.


First, there is no way I can't select them.
Second, zooming doesn’t change their size.

What these small circles are? How to get rid of them?

Any way to change the size of the circles that I made so that they all enlarge yet keep their respected positions. So for the example below, I would like to just enlarge the circles and not the rest. If I select all the circles and drag them to enlarge, they lose their position. Is there a way to do this? This script [URL] ...... doesn't work for x6 but I think it is what I might need, correct?

AutoCAD LT :: Moving Object From One Layer To Another

How do i copy and move objects from one layer to another?

I have been copying the objects to a new location in the old layer, then move the objects to the new layer,  then move the objects back to the original location in the old layer, but this is obviouly an ad hoc solution.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Constraints Not Moving Object?

Nov 4, 2011

I have some "insert" constraints for DIN rails in holes. I've moved the holes, but the DIN rail doesn't move. The refresh button isn't "lighting up", or when it does, it does not do anything to move the rail. Is there something that's been "shut off" to keep things from moving?

AutoCad :: Moving 2D Object To 3D Position Through Association / Searching

Dec 20, 2011

I have a 2D plan and a 3D plan. The data is essentially the same on both, the only difference being that the 2D plan has several hundred points on it (all at elevation/z coordinate of 0, of which can easily be copied to the 3D plan).

I want to move those 2D points to their respective 3D positions. I.e. if point X is at coordinates 15213.321, 51646.632, 0 I would like to search in the Z direction above (or below; although in this data set it would always be above) for any object (line, polyline, 3dpolyline or an arc only I think) that crosses or is on this coordinate and then move the point (or place a new point) to that z coordinate. So if there is a line whose z value is 895.265 at coordinate 15213.321, 51646.632, then the point (that was originally 2D) would become 15213.321, 51646.632, 895.265.

Any lisp or other method in AutoCad that could accomplish this (ideally without having to select each point individually)? Surely this must have come up a few times before although I'm not too sure what search words to be using to look for info.

AutoCAD .NET :: Moving Text Within Drawing

Sep 16, 2011

I am, as of now, trying to learn the VB.NET programming for AutoCAD applications from scratch .

The question I wanted to ask the devs out there is that, is there any way or a function to move a text object within a layer to a different geometric location? I was thinking it could be accomplished by translating the text or offsetting it.

AutoCad 2D :: Moving PDF Clip To Another Drawing

Jan 24, 2013

I need to move a PDF within it's own box to another drawing. It's acknowledged as a DWG.

The DWG. is something I can't upload.

Describing the box is kind of hard. It has its own perimeter and reacts fine within it's own DWG and behaves normally, and there's no message when trying to move it or Copy it.

But, when Copying into a new drawing, then it doesn't come through. There's no error message or any sign of it on the the new DWG. The background comes in fine, so there's no issue there. All X-REF's are working.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Lines And Object Regenerate While Moving Them Across Screen

Jun 11, 2013

I have upgraded to 2014 and since then I get this annoiying thing that happens when I am moving selected objects/lines across the screen during a copy and move. It's not a computer perfomrance thing. I have two monitors and I have called up both 2014 and 2013 side by side. When O copy or move and drag across the screen everything is wonderful. No regen while dragging, I can see the lines/objects 100% solid while dragging. In 2014, as I'm dragging and can't see the objects/lines because it's trying to regeneratate (slowly) while I'm dragging.

I have checked all my setting in tools>options and they are identical to what I ahve in 2013.

Photoshop :: Circles Inside Circles (or Rings)

Feb 11, 2005

I'm trying to make a logo. Circular logo with an inner ring maybe 4 px wide and 15 px inside the rim of the outer circle.

Basically I want a blue circle with a yellow inside ring. What's the best way of doing this? The only thing i can think of is: creating a blue circle marquee, and then another (trying to estimate a new circle size and change the color) that is yellow, and then making another smaller blue circle inside the new one. That's just ugly.

I tried the edit/stroke but that just gave me a stroke around the outer circle; it didn't put a ring inside the circle 15 px down.

Also I tried to contract the original circle by selecting it, then Modify/contract. That's got me a selected ring, inside the circle. Now how in the world do I make that little ring yellow? It just remains selected and I can't seem to find a way to color it.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Moving Items Within Part Drawing

Jun 21, 2012

I am trying to move a component within a part drawing, not an assembly. When I do "move bodies" it wants to move every extrusion within my drawing. If I click move face, then I have to click every face that I want to move (which is time consuming) and then it often times doesn't work? Sometime it works other times it just moves the origin indicator and doesn't move the faces I have selected.

AutoCad :: Drawing Sheet - Moving All Existing Attributes Over To Right

Feb 22, 2013

If you look at the attached drawing you will see my drawing sheets. The problem I have is regarding the attributes used for the 'Checked By' section of my sheet.

Yesterday I added a 'Size' tag to my sheet so this shows whats size paper the sheet is to be printed at. To make this fit I needed to move all the existing attributes over to the right.

Everyone except the 'Checked by' tag moved. I cannot now get this tag to move over even if I open the block up and move it.

I've attached an image to show you what I mean.

GIMP :: Image With No Background - Adding Pastel Colored Circles

May 9, 2012

How can i get such effects like in the attached image;

- first of all; the image has no background - the grapes are shown on a plain white background.Note; there is another nice little thing that we have to mention; the image of the grapes are somewhat with a kind of a overdose of light - i think that this is a nice effect - perhaps added with gimp!? The grapes look very interesting.

- the next effect that i like is the adding of the circles that are seen in the image. How did they add those pastel colored circles.

see this image here
