Autocad DWG file statistics
frenkas posted a topic in AutoCAD Beginners' AreaHello, I need one utility and can't find exactly what I need. I have some large files and would like to know what makes them so large. I have written a script to tell me what entities (lines,plines, blocks...) are in the drawing, but it seems that not they are the problem. I would like to know if there is a tool to throw more detailed statistics about dwg, including: linetypes, textstyles, viewports, external application stuff, named views, dimension styles, groups, mlstyles, layouts, plotstyles, dictionaries, etc. etc. I tried SuperPurge, but it is too slow and don't to the job for files larger than 10MB.
Migrating content center from AutoCAD Mechanical 2012 to 2013
NoelStalker posted a topic in CAD ManagementI'm trying to get my content center library from 2012 to 2013. I'm not having any luck with Autodesk's help. Supposedly it's as easy as Start Menu, All Programs, Autodesk, AutoCAD Mechanical 2013, "Migrate from a previous release" but that part in quotes is not an option. Instead I have "Export AutoCAD 2013 settings" and "import 2013 settings. I've successfully exported my ACAD 2012 settings using this strategy but when I try to import, nothing happens and my settings do not transfer. I've also tried using the CUIX transfer dialog box but that thing is a complete mystery to me. Also, I don't see an option to transfer content center library content within the CUIX transfer dialog box. How have you transferred settings in the past?
Unique part naming from library
sjoerdvdd posted a topic in Autodesk InventorHi, I'm having some problems giving certain parts in my assembly a unique file name. Im reorganizing all of my projects in a - content center - designs - libraries way, where my projects are under designs and commonly used parts under libraries. Now i have something like a pump. I can derrive this assembly into a solid and put it in the content center, or keep the assembly and put it in te libaries folder. since this is a part i use in multiple projects. Now my problem is that this pump has a different name in every project, and a library part doesn't allow me to change this name. Say standard name is "centrifugal pump" while the project name in project 1 would be P101, while in project 2 it has to be named P501 and so on in order to match with the flowcharts. Is my only option here creating a solid out of these components and putting it all in my content center ( leaving my libraries folder totally empty ), adding it as a custom part afterwards ( so i can rename it ). I rather have it in my library folder, since this will keep my design folder organized without hundreds of duplicates of this pump, using different names. Besides i rather have it as an assembly so i can assign the connectors of the pump to different sub assemblies of piping. I hope it's all clear.
missing content of a file
Rubbersnow posted a topic in AutoCAD Generalsomething strange happened , I had open two files (work file and file to watch from) and somehow after closing AutoCad , the content of the work file is replaced by the content of the other one.It is same with the .bak file . Is there any chance to recover my previous work , somehow to go back in the history of that file? :shock:
