Imagery on network

84 Views, 2 Replies

Hi,

 

I have a local drive that multiple people have access to and has hundreds of georeferenced images on it. I have an AutoCAD drawing with a shapefile of all the imagery frames with object data attached to the frames. There is way too many images to have them all in the drawing and causes the drawing to be slow and sometimes crash. What I want to do is be able to select the frame or frames of the images I want  to import based on the object data frame name and import them. Where do I start?

 

Help please

 

Colin

Loadin' imagery on demand

Try this trick, sir:

1] unload every image with _-IMAGE suboption _U then * 
(pay attention to the underscore and minus sign before IMAGE)

2] save the drawing and exit

3] reopen the DWG

4] you see a bunch of empty frames, isn't it?

5] type the _IMAGE command
(only with underscore)

6] now you can click on selected image names, then click on Reload

A simple lisp routine could do it as long as the frames have the image name in the OD tables.
