Looks like almost 1300 objects processed before it hit a problem. Can you email me that DWG?
As for the alignment, I think I may be able to add support for them.
Will send to the dotson.com address - I'll send the original C3D 2013 file as it's significantly smaller.
Added support for AECC_ALIGNMENT objects and error should be fixed. All those interested download again.
Are you suggesting that as long as the source (i.e. Google) is acknowledged then you are good to go?? I don't think this is correct unless you have Google Earth Pro in which case I believe there is no problem.
Most people I guess do not use Google Earth Pro and usage (without a Pro licence in a commercial organisation) would be a violation - unless you can advise me to the contrary??
There have been threads on this in the past and posted workarounds (to get colour images from Google Earth) were removed

With respect to images my understanding would be the companies that the companies that own the images and lease them to google would have to give approval (digital globe, Geoeye etc..)
At what stage between drawing a polygon in GE to converting it to shape to importing and printing it from C3D becomes "commercial gain" I'm very unsure. For example I may earn a payment simply by having a rough area on from GE but must likely will not be appreciated or paid any more for printing the outline from C3D
That's right..if you go through Google Earth Content Rules and Guidelines:
Which content are you interested in - Google Earth.
How do you plan to use this content - Print for Distribution
What medium will you be printing our content in - Professional Use (ie Proposal/Analysis)
That covers almost all output from an engineering company's perspective.
Using Content for Professional Documents:
You may use google maps or google earth for reports, presentations, proposals and related items professional documents. We request you still retain attribution
As long as the attribution is on the image – it is fine to use for any reports, drawings etc.
Arturo mentioned the NASA World Wind Application. has anyone been successful in installing and obtaining images from World Wind?. We want to upgrade to C3D 2013 but absolutely need access to images for our projects. If anyone is using this software to download images could you please post what versions of C3D you have used it with and any installation problems you did, or did not, have. We tried installation this morning and World Wind will not run on our machines. Thanks
This months AUGI has information on page 43 for a free download to use with 2013 called CADtoEarth. Available Jan 1, 2013. Is this the image from GE resolution we have been asking for? I started a new thread on this and realized my old, original thread was still going strong.
