Hello,

 

How to manage a large number of plans without going through the X-Refs or third party software?

Hi,

 

welcome @forums.autodesk.com !

 

>> How to manage a large number of plans

That depends on what you understand about "manage plans", ... and of course what types of plans you have and how they interact with each other.

In the simpliest case it can be a good directory structure standardized for your projects (and everyone in your company knows it), you might play with some mini-automatism like exporting title-block attributes into a simple database for searching, and then, well not anymore without 3rd party app, in some document management systems.

 

Let us know a little bit about what you are doing, what plans you have, how have you structured it currently and why you don't want your current way you are working.

We use some geo-referenced plans or not, we want to display different plans depending on the scale or zoom. The structure will be define later.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

>> We use some geo-referenced plans

In DWG format or any GIS format (like SHP or SDF)?

 

>> we want to display different plans depending on the scale or zoom

You might look into the display functionality of GIS-objects, show more or less detailed geometry based on zoom/scale is one of the standard features in Map3D.

Hi,

Are you speaking about MapGuide or Map3D?

If you have different DWG-files I don't understand that question.

 

What I meant was rendering the same data with different options depending on zoom factor, so e.g. looking to the data with >1:100000 you see nothing, between 1:10000 and 1:100000 you see the border of polygony with thin lines, looking to the data with <1:10000 the polygons are filled like thematic mappings and the borders are more thick.

But you always look at the same data, not to different DWG files.

 

"If you really want to see different DWG's you just have to open it" ... at least this is the sentence that make it more clear why I'm not sure to understand you.

With DWG you can create mulitple maps from the display manager and set zoom/scale as needed with quries of the dwg layers/enities. If you are wanting muliple dwgs dispalyed then look at the map attach and query tools. (ADEDRAWING commmand)

Yes, I did have Map3D open to double check the correct spelling. :smileyhappy:
