Project Artoo for AutoCAD® Map 3D 2013 software is a free* technology preview that helps you perform geometry cleanup operations on geospatial data stores to improve the quality and accuracy of your geospatial data.
Please trry it and reply to this thread. There is also a thraed in the Civil 3D forum for AutoCAD Civil 3D users who also use AutoCAD Map 3D.
Great idea - I have several clients moving data bak and forth in Map 3D in order to do drawing cleanup. This will help a great deal.
On the Zero Length Objects. I have an attached SHP file with multiple vertices at one location. Standard DWG cleanup will fix this on an AutoCAD Pline - but this does not seem to be the case here. I'm attaching a sample SHP file for you to test.
After installed the Artoo x64, I cann't find the "new Geospatial Cleanup icon" on Tools tab.
Is there other method to open it?
Hi, where can I get the available clean operation list for every kind of data source and layer? It seems there are some operations valid for line layers but no for polygon layers. Exists that list?
Thnak you for your patience. I have alerted the team that this message has not yet been answered. Our Product Manager associated with the technology preview will be back in the office on June 21.
As you've found out, not all cleanup operations will work on all data sources. In fact, some cleanup operations will only work on certain geometry types. Below is a list of available cleanup operations by geometry type:
- Delete Duplicates
- Break Crossing Objects
- Extend Undershoots
- Apparent Intersection
- Snap Clustered Nodes
- Zero Length Objects
- Erase Dangling Objects
- Erase Short Objects
- Dissolve Pseudo Nodes
- Simplify Objects
- Weed Polylines
- Sliver Polygon Removal
- Reform Polygons
- Correct Duplicate Points
