  1. I'm running AutoCAD 2012 on Windows 7 and my eTransmit has stopped working in certain instances. If I use it through a sheet set it usually works fine but if I use it in a drawing it won't grab the xrefs. When I try to click the Transmittal Setups... button it causes a fatal error like the one in the attached file. Anyone else experience this error and have the solution? Thanks.
  2. Hi Autocad Experts, I am new to Autocad customization using VB.net. We have a requirement to draw a horizontal line from a given co-ordinate to the point where it intersects with any other line. It's perhaps already discussed in the forum, but since I am new to vb.net, I am not able to put things together. Appreciate any help I can get from this forum. Looking forward to replies.
  3. My manager just asked me about AutoCAD 2014 and will consider an upgrade if he thinks it's worth it. Is there somewhere I can see an overview of the main differences between AutoCAD 2012 and AutoCAD 2014? I also remember a recent thread about some AutoCAD 'testers' that released some info to the community, a link to this might help too. Thanks in advance.

    sketchup to v7 or v8 dgn.

    pleaaaase help!!! i am trying to import a drawing into CAD from sketchup. i have exported the drawing from sketchup as a dwg. file. when i try import it into CAD. an error msg pops up that says it is an unsupported file. only v7 and v8 dgn. files supported. I have the student version of CAD 2012. PLEASE HELP ME!!
  5. Hi Forum, First of all, I know this is a well discussed topic and still: Please dont blame me for not using the search function or the helpfile - honestly: I tried it all and thorough. Im at Autocad 2012. When I start drawing a line from a specific point in the drawing and type in the dimensions via DYN - relative coordinates work like a charm, but when I start a rectangle from the same point and type in the dimensions (via DYN) it wont work. It does not change when I set dynpicoords to 0 or 1. Nothing else happens when I type @ or # or nothing as prefix. I guess there is either a solution or an easy explanation for this. I would be highly thankful, if someone can help me. Thanks in advance for reading and thinking. Cheers Pete
  6. Hello everyone, I have project requirement to create asp.net web application to collect input about drawing file(.dwg). After users enters information,they will apply their own project information for generation of dwg. Meanwhile project have another component as window service which will use queue mechanism to gather all user projects and execute it one by one to create drawing file. Web application will be hosted on server. My question is: Can I use AutoCad 2012 License to achieve this for executing multiple request one by one ? Is it violation of any license terms for execution of multiple request? Pl advise asap. Many Thanks, Raj
  7. Hello, We are having problems with FDO Oracle Provider. Map3D 2012 id not able to see changes made on Oracle table (via SQL Developer). For example, when we delete, update or add a column in table, MAP 3D throws an error like this (Note that SIFRA1 does not exist in this table): Also, tables that are deleted in oracle are still visible in fdo oracle provider. For Example: Table MBUS_RHI1 does not exist in our database but it is still listed How can we fix this? We tried updating MAP 3D to SP1 and SP2 but problem persists. Where does MAP 3D store information about database structure? Can someone please help us! We are desperate! Thanks in advance!
  8. Hi I need help My client needs an a3 drawing I drew converted into a PDF so he can print the PDF off to the correct scale. I created the pdf in autocad 2012 to A3 size and a scale of 1:1. I emailed the PDF to my client who now says that the PDF is not to the correct scale when he prints it, I instructed him to select the 'actual size' option he then said it cut off the drawing at either end of the drawing. He getting very angry now. He wants to be able to open the PDF press print and it to print out to scale. Is it something I am doing wrong? I have never had this problem before and I am beginning to panic. Thanks in advance for any help

  10. here is the problem that im supposed to draw in the picture in the attachment, the mechanism for a front end loader is shown in fiqure p 15.9. the specifications call for the boom to elevate through 74 degree from the position shown. Find the piston travel required for the boom cylinder X to the produce this elevation. at the upper position the bottom of the bucker is to slope downward at 50 degrees to dump the contents. what piston travel is required for the bucket cylinder Y to accomplish this operation? use a scale of 1:10 you will find the picture in this page http://www.cadeverything.com/help/showthread.php/7077-Massive-help-with-piston-project-(challenge)
  11. Hello all, I'm very new to this website and came a cross it from google while looking for standards / recommended line weight sizes. i did find a thread but it was from many years ago so was not much help. I have used autoCAD for years now on & off and use to be good but have fallen out of practice with it and plan to get back to a high standard, but when it comes to lineweight types i'm very much a newbie. I have been designing a drawing of an estate agents with two flats on top and when it comes to plotting it is all over the place due to line type weights and i was hoping someone would be able to tell me clearly the line weights i should use for e.g. extior walls = 0.** intior walls = 0.** and go on i will attach a PDF of plott and a .DWG to show what i mean. i will save it in .DWG 2007 - i am using autoCAD 2012 Thank you for any help it will be much appreciated!! Tom. p.s. sorry for the essay! & i'm new to forums. plan.dwg_2.dwg_2007[1].dwg plan.dwg_2.dwg_2007[1].pdf
  12. Here is my problem – I work at a company that has used autocad 2000i, since 2000. We use a software called “LiveText 2.0” (since 2000) to update a “date, time, user” text string in the format, whenever the drawing is saved. We now have autocad 2012 and it will not write to the “LiveText” text string when saved. I have followed the setup used for the 2000i systems to no avail. Has anyone even heard of “LiveText” or come across this problem? Thanks.
  13. We have 2 machines running Windows 7 64bit, and AutoCAD 2012. We use sheet sets extensively. When inserting a "sheet list table", which we use as our drawing index, it takes anywhere from 5-20 minutes on our Win7 machines, but takes only 2-3 seconds on our WinXP machines. Has anyone else run into this issue? Have any ideas of how to fix it? I've been emailing back and forth with Autodesk support, but we don't seem to be getting any closer to a resolution. Any ideas would be appreciated!
  14. I'm having trouble with the "extend" function on AutoCAD 2012 (windows). Randomly, the "extend" function will delete the lines I select. I sometimes will have to undo and re-input "extend" three to four times for it work properly. No, this isn't a major issue however, it is certainly irritating after hours of use. Has anyone else experienced this?
  15. I had the free student version of autocad 2012, and it worked fine for a couple of months. Then a couple of days ago, I suddenly could not open the program. I did not try to open a specific file, just the autocad program itself. It showed me this error message: fatal error unhandled e0434352h Exception at fd4ca49dh I don't know what this means, so I tried to repair the program from the computer's control panel. It said the repair was successful, but the error message continued to appear. I uninstalled autocad and downloaded it again from the autodesk website. I re-installed it, but it said that parts of the program failed to install. I would try to use the program anyway, but I can't find it anywhere on my computer, so I assume the installation failed completely. I have tried restarting my computer, downloading and reinstalling again - both 64bit and 32bit. I have Windows7. Also, I saved the list the program gave me of what successfully installed and what failed to install, so I can provide that if it would help. Let me know if you need more information. I don't know much about computers, and I have no idea what else to do! Thank you for any help!!
  16. OK so I am working with AlignDB Blue Sky Software. I just spent about 2k on 2 seats for AutoCAD LT thinking that that software would work, but I didn't realize that ACAD LT doesn't allow third party programs to be installed. So my question is can I get a discounted version of the full version with the LT versions? I really don't want to spend that much money after already purchasing AutoCAD LT. I feel like an idiot and I wish that I knew that I was going to be using this software with AutoCAD. Thanks,
