Hello, i am sorta new/renewed to all this and am in need of some help. I downloaded a cad model and it had block attributes i think it is. Basically it is a crane and it can move side to side and and up and down and in and out. I try to export it to 3Ds max and i have tried to imprt and pin and a whole mess of stuff and nothing seems to work. when it opens in 3Ds its all black and every piece is seperated now and nothing works. How can i get it into 3Ds Max and still have a functioning model to animate. Please any help will do. and i need this fast, so if anyone could even just bring it into 3Ds Max for me and keep it operable, and then try and teach me how to do, it would be even more helpful. But really any sort of help would be great. Thank you again in advance. here is the site for the crane http://www.cadforum.cz/catalog_en/block.asp?blk=8321 or contact me and i can e-mail you the .dwg file. its 1,700 or so kb and the site here wont let me post it.
I just want to start out by saying I know a little bit about cad but I do not know a whole lot about plotting corrdinates. My issue is as follows. I have about 40 gps corrdinates that I took with Droid2Cad which are recorded as lat, long, and alt. The points can be exported to .dxf and .kml(google earth). I have exported them to both and it looks like google earth plots them correct but I have issues with the .dxf file. I have a .dwg site plan of an agriculture site from a engineering firm that seems to be drawn at 1:1. When I go to overlay the points on the site plan the points end up way off off the site plan. I dont know if I need to scale the .dxf or what. The points seem to be in the right configuration but they dont land anywhere close to the right spots. When I overlayed the points on the .dwg, I selected all the points, copied with a base point on a point that I knew the corresponding point on the .dwg, and pasted that point to the point on the .dwg. I dont know if I did a good enough job explaining this but I would appreciate any help anyone can give me. If you need more info or clarification please let me know. Thank you for your time.
