Actually, does anyone have this working?
I think I did on a 32bit version of AIMS 2013...
but not in AIMS 2013 64 or AIMS 2014 64bit
I am curious if DWGs are working for anyone?
I have found the same thing. There is no point in using the DWG FDO connection or Load DWG Data option as it' doesn't retain any of the styles. You would be better off to create an SDF with anything from the dwg that is generated using those tools.
The point of the DWG extension in the past was to give the ability to load DWG's so they looked the same as what was in the native dwg file without having to manipulate the output. In AIMS that isn't the case and the DWG load is pointless.
The "Load DWG data" option is supposed to retain AutoCAD layer styles, and from the DWG files I have loaded using this new feature, that is indeed the case.
When you LOAD a DWG you get the Acad styles as attributes (as well as Object Data and Block Attributes)
When you directly connect to the DWG with ALIASes, you only get (Acad) from above.
Either way, the properties are harvested to recreate the way the drawing looks.
It is not like the DWF that statically shows the graphics.
The old MapGuide 6.5 gave you the option between harvesting the DWG as vectors or rendering the DWG "as is" without any intelligence. AIMS does not have this.
