Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I am working in AutoCAD 2000 and am getting a .dxf file created by the Trimble Office Geomatics software. When I open the .dxf file in AutoCAD my points will have the point number and the point description but not the point elevation. I can't get this node feature to appear in my drawings after using a .dxf file to bring in the points.

Hi,

I may be able to help in the most general of ways having used several autoCAD programs myself but not this version of AutoCAD itself.

When you are done with your drawing in Trimble, are you saving or are you exporting. Are you compelled to render your drawing upon saving or do you have to render before saving.

And, more importantly, do you have the option to Export your drawing and then select the Program to export to. Or, is this what you are doing already.

And lastly, for everyone who will respond to your post, and you'll get some good replies and some weird ones and some like mine that may just double check your process; What version of Operating System are you using and what Platform are you on, Windows or Mac. If you are using Windows, have you applie XPSP3 yet (this patch has caused a lot of off the wall problems for many people).

When replying please address those of us who have asked a question by using the format: Worldvet: my problem is strictly with AutoCAD 200, thanks anyway. By including the board name you will help us to understand to whom you are replying.

Thanks.

Regards,
Worldvet

Autocad drawing in winxp cannot opened in vista


Yes, Its same as you saved MS word or any other office files in latest MS Office 2007 format and try to open in 2003 format. For your future use with all the office related and other softwares you should always try to save two files viz a viz one in the format which your sofware gives by default and the other in the older format which you will have to manually scroll down after saying Save as in your document below the box in which you type the name on which you want to save your file. You will get many options there just check the version of your school autocad and save it according to that version. If you can't go to the school now for checking. Just save diag1, diag2, diag3 .... likewise for all the available formats in your pc one of them will deffinetly open at your school.
Thankyou for using fixya free utility kindly rate my solution.

AutoCAD LT 2008 (xref circular references)


The "circular reference" indicates that the xref you are pulling in is also xrefing the drawing file you are in which creates this circular reference to each other. The error message is only a warning and does not prevent you from working and saving changes. To get rid of the error message, close the primary drawing file and then open the reference drawing and DETACH the xref that is linked to your primary drawing. Save the changes and then open the primary drawing file again to see if the error was resolved.

Convert CAD (DWG) to Visio Drawings


You can import graphics files of different formats to start a new Visio drawing by using the Open command on the File menu.
The following graphics file formats are supported:
  • AutoCAD Drawing File Format (.dwg, .dxf)
  • Compressed Enhanced Metafile (.emz)
  • Enhanced Metafile (.emf)
  • Graphics Interchange Format (.gif)
  • JPEG File Interchange Format (.jpg)
  • Portable Network Graphics (.png)
  • Scalable Vector Graphics Drawing (.svg, .svgz)
  • Tag Image File Format (.tif, .tiff)
  • Windows Bitmap (.bmp, .dib)
  • Windows Metafile (.wmf)
Note File formats may vary slightly between language versions. You may not get exactly the same results if you import files created in different language versions.
  1. On the File menu, click Open.
  2. In the Files of type box, click the file format of the file you want to import.
If you don't see the file format listed, Visio doesn't have a file filter for that format. Try saving the document in a format Visio can open.
