DataLinkQ posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHi everyone, Setup; OS: Win 7 Pro X64 Product: AutoCAD 2015 Electrical CPU: i7 Graphics: AMD FirePro M6100 FireGL V Ram: 16GB Problem; I've created a datalink table to an Excel spreadsheet, and I'm only having issues with tables that required a break (table wrapping). Once I break the table and setup text properties; text height, alignment, headers, cell widths. Everything looks okay until I close and open the drawing. The first half of the table remembers the settings, but the second half always reverts back to .5 text height and top center alignment (headers and cell width are still in place on the 2nd part of the table) Solutions I've tried; I've tried to do the formatting before I break the table, I've tried after its broken. I right clicked on the tables and "Remove All Property Overrides" which makes the text all crazy, so I setup text properties, qsave and close. once I open the drawing text height and alignment changes again. If I try to "Remove All Property Overrides" the text doesn't change, so I think that function worked correctly. Summary; How can I get the 2nd half of the datalinked table to remember all property settings? I'm out of ideas Does anyone have some other solutions to try? Thanks for your time. -DataLinkQ
I have a fully electrical drawing set complete with I/O from my PLC I want to generate a .xlm file. I then want to write a program that will scrape the file looking for I/O addresses, and then assign aliases based on the descriptions. I’m having trouble with the .xlm file. When I generate the file the I/O looks like this: - Wire> What I need is something that includes the description. I know they are associated in some way because if I export to Excel the same I/O point looks like this: What do I need to change in order to associate the description to appear in my .xlm?
I just typed this whole thing up and my explorer crashed….. Here it goes, short version this time. First off, I would like to thank everyone on here for sharring information and providing help to those in need, it really does make a difference, so thank you. I work for a small drafting company and wespecialize in BIM coordination. I amusing MEP 2012 and love it for coordination with other trades. Most of my work is electrical. One of the companies we work for is going tostart a Pre-Fab division and wants us to create all of their Pre-Fab drawingsafter the work is coordinated. Last weekwe went to a meeting on TSI’s CADElect/CADPipe, and almost everything theprogram has to offer can be done in MEP. I prefer the level of customization available with MEP vs theCADElect. However, the one thing thatdid stand out was the couplings in CADElect. You can select a cut length for a conduit in both programs, but in MEPit will simply divide a conduit up into the specified length and in CADElect itwill place a coupling between them. Isthere a way to get these couplings to be automatically added in MEP? I searched the Google Machine and came upempty handed. Any input on this matteris greatly appreciated. I don’t want toleave the MEP, but I might have to….
