AJ_The Cadalyst posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputHi everyone, I'm new here & this will be my first post . I m using Autocad 2013. I am working for an Engineering office, and we use architectrural plans as Xrefs to put our stuff on top of them, Problem is that every architect uses different LTSCALE and When we Xref it it will not match our general LTS. and as a result we see the dashes as continues. which is a pain... (In our templates the LTS is set to "20", PSLTSCALE is set to "1" VISRETAIN is set to "1" ) Any change to the LTSCALE value of Xref is ignored in the host drawing ( cuz of VISRETAIN setting i guess) Can anybody help me with this please? With a command or a lisp? Tnx
Hi, I need to change colors on a dwg file and to see them changed on Navis. Let me explain : - I'm gonna receive .dwg every weeks, same name but updated (ex : 1.dwg, 2.dwg, 3.dwg) - I'm planning to xref all the .dwg on the same drawing to change the colors I need (with Visretain : 1, I'm gonna keep the modified color) (Xref.dwg) My problem is when I append Xref.dwg, it takes the colors from the originals files (1.dwg, 2.dwg, 3.dwg). Does any of you know how to do it? Thank you Ildan
joneric13 posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputHi All, Need some help! My problem is this; I have several production sets (Sheet Sheets) of drawings in which the referenced drawing's layers are not carrying over. To clarify; In my base file file I went through and froze out and changed the color of several layers. When I reference that drawing into my sheet sets all of the layers are turned back on and set to the original colors. I should also note that the offending referenced drawing is also an xref. It is a large architectural drawing with several dozen nested xrefs refernced into a base file in which I have inserted blocks and symbols. I've tried different VISRETAIN settings and other options. Nothing seems to work. I've also went through various forums and tutorials to try and solve the problem before I posted here. I'm at my wits end! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Bennymac777 posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputI use a building key for building reference (inserted as a xref into the individual drawings) in many of my drawings. I have layers for specific areas and rooms. I turn off the layers on the appropriate drawings (if the drawing is for room 301, I make sure all other layers are off and only 301 are on). My problem come when I add a new layer to the key and since the key in xrefd into many drawings it shows up as always being on. This makes to have to go back and do a little bit of layer control each time I change the xref. Is there a way to help this? VISRETAIN=1 only keeps the layers set to last save and everything added to the xrefs are basically taken from the xref (color, visibility, etc). Is there a way to set a variable so that you have to check the new xref layers before they show up on the referenced drawing?
