  1. Hello, I'm looking for some help in the task of making my plans less boring. I'd like to use some non - uniform hatches to obtain something similar to the attached image. https://images.adsttc.com/media/images/595d/1743/b22e/38d8/8b00/0036/slideshow/SAN_-_siteplan_-_rooftop.jpg?1499273017 The building probably has a gradient hatch, while the lawn, and the concrete plaza, what hatch did they use for it? Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi everyone! I've an apc 8x3.8 propeller CAD file and I've to modify the chord length while maintaining the pitch and diameter but I'm not sure how to go about doing it. The airfoil used is the NACA 4412. Any ideas? Melissa
  3. Hello, So the following is an example of a very nice homerun. You can bend it and it'll move the arrow accordingly, reducing time spent drafting during clean up. I'd like to make one similar to the one attached that will allow you to show the wires associated with the circuit. For those not electrically inclined, Long line = neutral Short line = hot/1phase Long line+dot = ground I think it would be nice if you could bend the homerun like the one attached but also be able to change it using a dynamic block type setup where you can chose different circuit types based on what it is powering. Is anyone savy enough with AutoCAD to do something like this? Dynamic Homerun.dwg

    Mini CNC Milling Machine

    I am looking to build a mini CNC mill and has been looking in CNC zone forums from long time. They have given some suggestions, but still want some machining feedback. There are so many files on the Grab cad that also didn't getting in mind. We have machinery parts or can be done from local engg shops so it is easier to get all the items except electronic parts. I just need a rough diagram to know the sizes, etc. I am looking to modify this machine to fit my needs. https://grabcad.com/library/cnc-milling-machine--3 Any suggestions to me, but it shows for wood. P.s I am looking to draw this machine in Solidworks that is the reason for posting. Shift, All the previous components were made that got help from you.
  5. Hi there, I was hoping someone cold help me I am just going through changing the scale of my drawings and for some reason the objects in my model space are now coming up huge in the paper space!? The model space is set to 1:1 I have also gone through and changed all the paper space views with viewports to 1:1 I am really not sure what is wrong I have attached some pictures to make it a little clearer. Any help would be really appreciated
  6. Hi all, I have done data extraction of my CAD file to excel using AutoCad 2017 (full version), which includes global width, but did not include the handle or any other type of ID to distinguish the lines from one another. Is there any way to get the attributes of lines, specifically global width, in an attribute table that includes the handle to distinguish the lines? If this can be accomplished in other cad software that is free besides Autocad, I'm open to that as well Thanks!

    Auto CAD to 3DS Max

    Hi everyone. I am looking for some help / advice / tutorial links etc. I am trying to get a site layout (roads, footpaths, buildings, open space) from Auto CAD into 3DS Max. I am quite new to Max, i know how to import and scale my drawing, and i know how some of the modifier tools work, but that's about it! Does anyone know of any decent tutorials on how to turn a CAD site layout into a 3D model, using the original CAD line and without having to retrace the whole thing in Max? Many thanks Matt
  8. Hi: Here I can read ... Forum: Blocks, Images, Models & Materials. So, may I put here the link to a new page CAD blocks. Currently it is 99% free?
  9. Hello everybody, currently I'm doing an internship at an online store. My task is now to find out which data and information we should provide to our different target groups (eg architects). Since architects and regional planners especially working with CAD, it would interest me, what we can provide on our product pages (for example: http://www.badewannen.de/Badewannen/Freistehende-Badewannen/Rund-Oval-Badewanne-Rhein-180-x-80-cm-1227-freistehend.html) to simplify working with CAD. Is the drawing of a picture enough, or should we offer more downloads? And if so which ones? Many thanks Lisa
  10. Hi, I need to start drawing 2d floor plans and house plans for extensions. These need to pass planning permission so I am assuming that walls need to be a certain thickness etc. I was wondering if there are any books out there or any guides which can show me step by step how to produce a plan which can be passed by planning? Thanks,

    pool design help

    i trace about 40 pools a day into autocad. i use a calcomp drawing board. im wondering is there a way to put the pdf image directly into CAD so that i can just trace it directly in CAD? this would save an enormous amount of time if any one knows any way i could make something like this possible. im using cad2012
  12. Hi. So as I was sitting in class today I noticed that If I froze my two layers a-door and a-sanr-fixt I realized my doors were disappearing on both layers. I realize this is because I created my blocks on the a-sanr-fixt layer. Now what I'm wondering is if there is anyway to remove the a-sanr-fixt from the door properties so that way when I freeze my a-sanr-fixt layer the doors wont freeze. This issue is happening across all layers. Any help would be greatly be appreciated. If anyone has fixed this before please link me to that.
  13. Hi there, I am doing a project on learning how people learn complicate CAD tools like autoCAD, and then think of ways to improve this process. If you have 20s, and want to help out, here is a link to the sign up/survey http://goo.gl/forms/pcV9r06vga thanks a lot in advance. :D:D

    ShipConstructor

    Hi, my company is currently looking into purchasing ShipConstructor, I am wondering whether anybody on here has any experience with it? if so what are the good and bad points of this software? are there many limitations and can it be used effectively with a 3d room scanner? Thanks, Connor
  15. Hi, i have a little problem with cad... How can i extend line to the surface? Is there any chance to do this? I tried to do this but everything is pointless... Thanks for help e: Ofc line intersects the plane
  16. I know I've seen many similar posts on this subject, but all the suggestions still haven't fixed my problem? I'm trying to import a Cad 3d drawing into Sketchup 8 Pro. The cad drawing is saved as 2007. Sketchup shows an import in progress and goes all the way 99% and then waits. I've waited and waited (over an hour), and I realize that it will never import. Any ideas why it doesn't complete? I've purged and deleted all blocks. It is a large file, but below the 15MB that Sketchup's help site recommends.
  17. Scenario 1: When a user grabs two or more licenses of the same software. Scenario 2: When a user opens multiple functional modules at the same time. Scenario 3: When a user occupies licenses and never recycle them. Scenario 4: When users get licenses from stand-alone hosts. Being a CAD manager at one of the largest auto manufacturers in the world, I wanted to share my experience with you regarding CAD license management. During the beginning stage right after I joined the firm, I started to look into the baseline and found out that it was just a chaos. I started to doubt whether there're sufficient number of licenses to use, however, it's 85/102, 85 licenses and 102 engineers in that facility, meaning 17 engineers wouldn't be able to get licenses while all other 85 engineers working on their jobs at the same time. Nonetheless, that's not the root cause for this chaos, because there's no such time when all engineers get to work on Catia. So, why? After days of search on the internet, I found and downloaded a software named "LMT LicManager" recommended by my friend from Magna( he said this software worked well for them). It's interesting that, the real issue identified was, according to the historical license usage information generated by LMT LicManager: a big number of engineers had taken licenses for so long time and just never take them back to license pool, even there's an user took license for 34 days, wow! I was shocked. I would say the software works perfectly, I just love it. It also helps me to view license usage in real time, it automatically recycles overtime licenses( I set overtime as 20 mins, if mouse an monitor are both remained unmovable within 20 mins, the software will automatically take license back), but most relevant feature is, it gives me a forecast for next year's license procurement, 63 was the number it calculated, which means the peak value(only 63 licenses used in previous year's busiest day). We could cut down 85-63=22 license costs. Useful! Now, there're a couple of other features of LMT LicManager that I am trying to discover in near feature. As a manager, I believe the advance of computing technology will benefit our daily managment whole a lot, at least, I will keep an eye on finding many more solid tools.

    Sketchup V.s CAD

    What's wrong with Sketchup anyway? I don't use Sketchup, but many of the designers at my company do. I get the impression that my colleagues think I am down on Sketchup because I am the CAD manager and I use a 'Proper' CAD package. People seem to love or hate Sketchup, but I'd like to hear some objective constructive criticism from you. What is Sketchup good for? What is it not good for? Have you managed to work Sketchup into your design to manufacture process? Great stuff, thanks in advance for your thoughts, Paul

    integrating Cadmep into a revit model?

    Hello all, i wonder if you can help/ The company i am currently working for is well up to speed for using 3d co-ordination (produced to a level it can be fabricated) using Autodesk cadmep fabrication 2013. To date we, we have gotten by buy using the steelwork contractors 3d steelwork model and 2d architectural backrounds which are then inserted into drawings where required. More and more we see clients are asking us to integrate our model from fabrication into the revit model generally received from the architect. Having come up against a brick wall using cad 2013 & revit 2013, our software manager had it sold to him that the new 'Autodesk design suite 2014' package was able to fully interact the fab model with the revit model, but so far, to no avail... i fear we are about to lose this order due to the fact this was promised to the client off the back of the words of an autodesk sales rep. Can anyone help? Any advice is appreciated greatly. Chris
  20. Hi all. I'm sure that this question has probably been raised countless times over; I can't find any solution, so please accept my apologies in advance. I have AutoCAD at work and on my desktop at home, but only True View and Design Review on my laptop. I need to work from my laptop and need to view acad dwgs; that's it, but I need the external references (xrefs) loaded within dwgs too. Other than etransmitting etc is there a way/program to simply open an acad dwg and be able to see it? Even as an uneditable entity/image or something? I just need to see it - from the .dwg file itself; no PDF or anything like that. Thanks! Michael
  21. Hi, Orange Juice Studios have been creating a professional 2D CAD application for the tablet market over the last 2 years and are now looking for beta testers. If you're interested in becoming a beta tester or simply in CAD and how it can be used on the tablet, have a look at this.... http://bit.ly/18AbQIW. Thanks.
  22. Hi All:), I need help and forgive me for my naive and beyond basic questions:D. I've been put in charge of dividing the space of a future retail shop. I have been given the LOD/Rendering of the space which I have attached (click on link to view --> Retail LOD Rendering.pdf). The prospective Landlord requires approval of any changes to the space, and therefore wants to see the proposal on paper. I have been looking for CAD Software to use, but I don't know how to use the ones I've tried:oops:. As I understand it, CAD software is for Architects who already know their trade, and this is where I definitely fall short:cry:. Unfortunately, I don't have time to learn a complicated software, nor do I have unlimited funds to purchase it. I need to get this done ASAP, (i.e., yesterday:P) I have a budget of up to $300 - 500. I have been testing the following software: 3D Home Design This seems to be the best, but once I draw the Polygon Room, it can't draw the exact Dimensions for each wall. Once I draw the 1st wall, and draw the 2nd wall, the 1st wall automatically changes it's length. This software looks the best, but it optimal for Residential Homes, not a Retail Shop [*]pCon.Planner I'm not really sure how to use this:oops: [*]TurboCAD I'm not sure how to use this one either, and it installed some ride along software nobody wants on their computer:? What do you think would be the best suited software for this one-time project for a beginner like myself? Thank you so much in advance for any assistance you can provide. Take care!
  23. Dear Friends , Please Help Me out With This LSP file IT is Not Working, Some thing is missing in this, i am attacheing my lsp file for ur refrence.... its asking output file. i dont have that file
  24. Good afternoon. I haven't used autocad since 2002. I am look for a good instructional video that will get me up to speed with regards to autocad 2014. I just downloaded the trial version of Autocad 2014 and I want to become proficient enough to be employable within the next few weeks. I have used Autocad, Catia and Unigraphics in the past when I was in college, but that was years ago. I am looking to get back into the CAD market and find a cad job while sprucing up my skills. If you guys could direct me to an online source that I can view Autocad videos that would put me on a running start, I would greatly appreciate it. Any suggestions would me most appreciated. Thanks in advance autocad 2014, employment, money, cad, autocad, hiring

    Books for Drafters?

    I recently had the following question posed to me on my Blog: ‘Hi are you able to advice me on a course book that would give me all the correct information to produce a high standard joinery drawing that would then be sent off for approval’ You can read my answer here: Must have CAD books for Drafters http://cadso.co/GYf5MP I thought it would be interesting to open this question up. What books have you read, which books to you turn to when you get stuck? Do you even read books ant more - do you prefer videos or the internet?
