Problem publishing sheet set to DWF

385 Views, 8 Replies

I have a 15 sheet project in Civil 3D 2010 that I am trying to publish to DWF. The project is set up in 4 different drawing files, and I am using a sheet set to organize all the sheets. When I try to publish all the sheets to DWF from the sheet set manager, it acts like it is working fine. Then when I go to find the DWF file, it simply isn't there. So the program tells me it made the DWF, but it actually didn't. I have tried many times with this, but have had no success. I would appreciate any help with this problem.

Verify that all layers are printable. Review your page setups/layouts to verify that they are all set properly. Other than that, not sure.

Are you getting an error that reads something like "... null pointer ..."? I was was having a similar problem with my dwg to pdf printer. At one of my installations whenever I tried to publish from a sheetset I'd have that error go flashing by and then no output. It seemingly printed fine but... Some how the pc3 had gotten corrupted. After I copied a valid pc3 from another installation the problem went away.

..."So the program tells me it made the DWF"...
on the next line the program also tells you where it made the file

Are you setting Publish options to a known path?
Thank you

I specified a specific folder and the "Plot and Publish Details" window says the file was created in that location. Only the file doesn't exist.

Have you "searched" the hard drive(s) for the file?

Yes, I searched all the places it could be, but no luck. It doesn't seem to exist.

Re: Problem publishing sheet set to PDF

07-21-2011 10:15 AM in reply to: sarogers

This is happening to me as well when I try to publish multiple sheets to pdf. The program acts like it is working but the file doesn't exist. I'm using a cutepdf driver, I've reviewed the publish dialog settings and set 'publishallsheets' and publishcollate' system variables to (1) but the problem is not solved. As the previous contributor, I do get a message that quickly flashes across the screen so I can't read it. I'd like to try and correct the pc3 installation. Could I get some more direction on doing a reinstall for this? Thank-you.
