Creating and using dwg seed file

336 Views, 3 Replies

I am looking to attach custom attributes to autocad features (lines, polylines, polygons, points) so that when we insert the dwg into ArcGIS the attrubutes are linked to the feature in both autodesk and gis. I am thinking a dwg seed file will perform this task but am looking for some help understanding and implementing the procedures.

Hi,

 

>> I am looking to attach custom attributes to autocad features

Can be done with "object data" (>>>details<<<).

As far as I know, the DWG format with OD is not fully readable by ARCxxx, i.e. you can transfer the only geometry.

Why don't you simply use the shapefile as normal interchange format between cad and gis..?

Thank you, you are fully right, I missed the point that this DWG has to be inserted into an ArcGIS-project. I also was thinking about just data-creation with Map3D and AutoCAD entities and then use MAPEXPORT to get a SHP exported!

 

Sorry for confusion!
