Automating tasks for swiftness and presentation purposes using Blocks and Tables
LesCarpenter posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputI was wondering if anyone can help with problem I have. I am using Autocad 2011 although I only use it to tidy my drawings prior to sending to my client, my proficiency is quite basic. I have been tasked with surveying a number of feeder pillars or cabinets with 5 points of data, pt 1 is the centre of the doors, the other 4 points are the corners of the cabinet always in the same order. These can be imported into Autocad as a series of points and then I have to join the dots, and draw the cabinet. I know a little about blocks and that I can create a block of my drawing and place it over the five points, and then I'm stuck as if I change the block once it changes it in all the other positions. After i have placed the block, I need to list the coordinates of the 5 points, this i do individually using the id command and copy and paste into a table. Is there anyway to speed this up? I have attached a sketch of what I'm after doing, there could be as many 20+ cabinets in a drawing. So any help is appreciated. Many thanks in advance. fp1 trial.dwg feeder pillar template.pdf
Rendered Quality in a Viewport?
rustysilo posted a topic in AutoCAD 3D Modelling & RenderingHi folks, long time no see! I have two viewports in a layout showing 3d objects where I would like to see rendered quality when I print my dwg. How do I get this to work right? As of now the print output is not that great of quality. Shadeplot is set to 'rendered' and presentation quality for both viewports. Is there anything else I can do here to get it looking better?
