AutoCAD Map 3D 2013 constant FATAL ERRORS

538 Views, 4 Replies

I just downloaded a free trial & was able to import one shape file... The error occured when I tried importing a second shape file. I was able to recover the drawing once starting the program back up. As soon as it opens, the fatal error occurs again. I was unable to get anywhere after that. The imported shape files are only 1MB & 3MB's "large". I was under the impression this is a full trial version. Are there any size restrictions with it? What can I do to fix this issue?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Robyn

Hi,

 

>> I was under the impression this is a full trial version. Are there any size restrictions with it?

The only restriction is the 30-day limitation, nothing else is different in functionality from the activated product.

 

Some questions to isolate the problem (hopefully):

  • Where do you have the SHP-data from?
  • Have you tried to use _DATACONNECT to not import, but reference the SHP-data into your current drawing?
  • What coordinate-system do you use / which coordinate-system comes the SHP from?
  • Do you have any othter product that shows these SHP without errors?

I added a few shp files into my drawing using Data Connect. So far, no issues.

Thank you!

does that mean that you can work now as you need?

...or is that just the confirmation for "the shape-files are ok"? (then I miss the answers to the other questions)

Yes, I can work in my file as I need. The shp data is from Michigan GeoRef (MGRm). I am currently using M183-OB coordinate system (meters); which is what the shp files use.

Thanks again for the help!
