FNG with question? about objects

63 Views, 1 Replies

I have some dwg's for a library. The second floor is the only floor with shelves, so I am trying to copy the shelves and put them on the remaining floors. When I am trying to copy them it is like the shelves are turned off. I can see the shelves but they are not being selected as objects and not allowing me to copy them. Am I missing something? Am I suppose to enable something in order for me to select the shelves as objects? Could the shelves be obtained by a layer? I absolutely know nothing about Autocad I am a grad student in geosciences and specialize in ArcGIS I am importing these into ArcMap and creating a GIS for the library to locate all of the books. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated, thanks Jeff.

Are you using Autocad Architecture?


Are you using AEC objects for the shelves?


If so, check the cut plane and adjust as necessary to make the shelves visible.
