Re: AutoCAD Map 3D 2013 - Editing DXF maps

I've been wondering about the CS factor too. When the drawing opens up, the view scale is 1:12.5521 and the screen look blank. I have to zoom to full extents to see the drawing, and the view scale changes to 1: 21027.1.
I'm not sure how to interpret this since the units are "unitless."

Ok, tried the DDPTYPE and it looks like you were right, in that they are set to a single point, sized 5% relative to Screen. I tried changing the style and increasing the size to 100% relative to Screen size - no change. Then tried changing size to 1000 Absolute units (which I guess doesn't make a difference since the units are "unitless"?). No change.

 

I was excited thiugh, I though that might have been it. :smileyhappy:

Try opening one of the blocks in the blockeditor BEDIT and check there, change it then save the block and regen.

The Petra map that I exported the DXF out of is set to NAD 27 Texas State Plane South Zone. When open the DXF in Map3D no CS is assigned. Therefore, I guess the DXF does not contain a spatial reference

The old DXF format does not hold any CS data and I would say Petra is using the old format still.
