  1. For some reason the Express Tools were not loaded when they installed Autocad 2015. I guess the checkbox was overlooked among the tons of other stuff loaded. In days of old you could copy the Express Tools folder, load the Express Tools Menu and "APPLOAD" the main file and you were good to go. I found the Express folder among the install files (they're not compressed) But when I go to load the menu, I don't see it. Can anyone walk me through the process of manually loading the Express Tools in Autocad 2015 (Please??) Thanks Much!!
  2. Hey, I am tracing a curvy 2D shape using arc function. I want the outline of the shape very smooth. I would like to know how do I draw arcs that can be tangent to each other so eventually I can get this shape very smooth and nice. Thank you very much!
  3. Hey, can anyone help me with this project? I need to draw a circle tangent to 3 points on the red shape in the image I attached. The circle's diameter needs to represent the longest distance between 2 points on the shape. The question I have is: I don't know how to look for these 3 points on the shape. I also don't know how to find the 2 points on the shape which represents the longest distance inside of the shape. So how do I draw the circle? I am so frustrated with this. Anyone who can help me I would appreciate a lot. Thank you so much!!!
  4. Hi, brand new to this site and my very first thread! I am trying to write a LISP routine and basically have no experience with it except for opening them up and trying to decode it for my self. I am going over lisp basics right now but thought I would through this out there in hopes of learning something from you fine folks. What I need to do is draw a series of circles and rectangles and label them from values in a .CSV file. As I mentioned I am going over the basics and am having trouble keeping my head above water, so be kind please. Thanks in advance, CADINATOR

    Inventor LT vs AutoCAD

    Hello wise forum members, At my very small company, we currently use AutoCAD LT 2008 (it’s ok to laugh). I would like to upgrade to a 3D product so I can produce 3D renderings as well as the occasional unfolded cone. I’m trying to decide whether to purchase Inventor LT Suite or AutoCAD (full version- not LT). Here’s the conundrum: Inventor LT Suite offers 3D and also can unfold a cone (I’m quite sure). AutoCAD offers 3D, but cannot unfold a cone (based on my limited experience with a trial version). So, Inventor LT Suite appears to be more powerful than AutoCAD, YET it is quite a bit less expensive. What am I missing here? I have visited the Autodesk site many times and my answers seem to be shrouded in mystery. Also, and I hesitate to complicate matters, but the folks of this forum seem to be very knowledgeable…what about Solidworks? Should I be considering this program instead? Thank you for your time- I appreciate any insight you can offer.
  6. How can we select all polylines in drawing that have length less than 2.00 or by any specific length.
  7. I have designer drawings coming from Adobe Illustrator. I need to open those drawings in AutoCAD to make technical drawings. Then designers need to open them in Adobe Illustrator to make adjustments. How can I make these transition smoothly? Because now when I open ai files in AutoCAD, the lines are terrible. I have to redraw every lines. When designers open pdf file I saved from CAD in Adobe Illustrator, there are too many anchor points to edit. Anyone can help? Really appreciated!
  8. Hey, I have one vertex not smooth on my drawing. How can I change its tangency? It also shows a "+" sign near it, which I don't know what it means. I attached the drawing here for your reference. Thank you so much!!! vertex problem.dwg
  9. I opened an AutoCAD drawing of a building (not done in AutoCAD Architecture) and the entire layout was blocked. I attempted the explode command and it didn't change anything. I was able to go into the block editor, copy all contents, and paste it into a new blank drawing. Once pasted, it was no longer a block. Anyone experience that before, where you're not able to explode a block? Is there a way to lock/unlock blocks?
  10. I work in IT support at a large college, since upgrading to AutoCAD 2015 we have been having a problem with borrowed licences not working. Everything worked fine under AutoCAD 2013. A standard user can log onto a college laptop OK and launch AutoCAD 2015, they can follow the normal procedure (Help > About > Product Information > Borrow Licence) and get a message that the licence has been successfully borrowed, when the user tries launching AutoCAD 2015 away from the network they get the message that a licence cannot be found. When I log onto the same laptop with an admin account and borrow a licence, AutoCAD 2015 launches ok when off the network (WiFi disabled), so there must be a file/folder permissions issue that is blocking regular users from accessing the encrypted/borrowed licence file. Could someone please let me know where the file is stored, so I can try changing the folder permissions to rectify this. We are running AutoCAD 64bit on a Windows 7 64bit environment which is attached to a domain. Thanks in anticipation...
  11. After I arrayed an object, the 'array creation' ribbon tab doesn't show up. This is the tab I want to fine-tune the array. But this is what I get:
  12. I like to extend the last created polyline from its last endpoint using autolisp.
  13. Hi, I'm new here, in fact I signed up just to ask this. I've been using Autocad 2014 on my Windows 8 laptop with no problems, until I had to have the hard drive replaced, then the technicians upgraded my OS to Windows 8.1. Autocad seems to be working just fine, however I'm experiencing some clicking problems: 1. Copy command - When I select multiple objects, I have to click twice before I can select anything. Nothing happens on the first click. 2. Move command - When I move objects, I like to click on empty space as a base point. however, it doesn't work. Any ideas? Thanks. Lily
  14. I brought in a layer from a template file that had the color set to RAL 1011 and it seems to work fine, but when I try changing the color of a object to RAL 1011 I get a message saying that it is not a acceptable color (I don't remember the exact message), it doesn't let me change the color. Sometimes I can type in a color like RAL 2003 and it will change the object to the right color but instead of saying RAL 2003 it changes to a number with commas. I am sorry I don't have good examples, I am trying to ask these questions based on my memory. Thanks, Steve
  15. Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and kinda confused on my project of a 3D model of Burj-Al-Arab, I want to know which commands must be used in it and where to start?? Any help will be appreciated ,thnx.
  16. Hi guyz. I wanted to ask about the windows that pops up by pressing F2 in autocad, after using some commands when I check it I notice that the previous commands that I used are not being shown. Is there a way by which I can see the full commands (coding) that i did? Is this a bug or something?
  17. Please is there anyone that can give me step by step guides on creating a 3d car with autocad. I've tried a lot on my own(no satisfactory result). p.s i can loft, revolve and use some other basic 3d tools. I just need to know how to start model a 3d car. I'm really frustrated.
  18. I set students a one minute challenge to draw the component shown (pause the video and try it yourself BEFORE I reveal how it's done). Great practice to get your drafting skills up to speed! Good luck
  19. In this tutorial you will learn how to create contour lines from Google Earth on AutoCAD:
  20. I have some dynamic blocks in an old file. I am trying to use the same blocks in another file with some modifications. But when i try to edit it in block, it still remains the same. Can anybody guide how this is possible or what command I should instead of Bedit?

    plot to pdf

    Hello, I've drawn two autocad drawings. Everything is in meters and has the right distance (1meter in autocad is 1meter in real life.) The drawing is 2d. Now I need to make a PDF from this drawing. I need to do this by deleting all the layouts and after that right click at the layout and click at plot. I just dont see how I need to take the right scale. Whenever I use as plot area Window and press fit to paper it looks good, but if I enter a scale, the only outcome is 1:1 which is kinda weird because my drawing is about 10 meters long and I need to plot it to A3... How the heck can I make a good plot by chosing a scale that actually works and I can draw in my drawing? Thanks in advance, Chris.
  22. Hello guys, I am currently making an autocad 2d drawing for a university assignment. I just realized I was making my drawing 100times too big. Too bad I dont want to start all over again because there is kinda big pressure on it. Unfortunately I've only had 3 lessons autocad so I'm pretty much a big failer loser with this program. Hope you guys can help me out. Thanks in advance helping me out. digital_ownage.
  23. I know this showed up in the RSS Feeds forum, but it may be of some interest to someone who may not see that. AutoCAD for Mac 2015 and AutoCAD for Mac LT 2015 were announced and released yesterday (14 Oct 2014). You can find a brief summary of the new features and additional links here.

  25. Hello All, I'm a beginner to both AutoCAD and Rhino and am just experimenting at the moment. However, I'm slightly more confident on AutoCAD than Rhino and was wondering if it's possible to complete a design in AutoCAD than transfer it to Rhino without losing any of the evidence of the "construction process" ? Thank you in advance for your help and advice. Kind Regards,
