try to make a simple surface in 3D, this is what appears on the command line
"Unknown command "AECCCREATESURFACE". Press F1 for help." This is true in all
the 3D commnads
This link doesn't work anymore. I'm having the same problem with Civil 3D commands not working and I'm positive I'm opening and using AutoCAD Civil 3D. Please help!
Nothing occurs to me at the moment. I'll poke around and post if I come up with anything. Have you tried the standard - Restart the program and\or reboot?
I'm about to leave. Post what you find and I'll take a look 2morrow.
Oops, i'm so conditioned to seeing messag boxes come up for missing shape files or xrefs that I failed to read the following one carefully: "This drawing was created with a newer version of Civil 3D. All entities created by Civil 3D within the drawing are in a proxy state. Additionally, all commands, settings, and displays of Civil 3D are disabled for this drawing."
I read that this can be caused by orphaned files so I removed the AECC points in the drawing, recovered, audited; all without resolving the issue. It seems to be simply that I need to contact the drawing owner and ask them to save it as version 2010 from a newer version.
Thanks again for the help.
