Ahhhh....that's what I like. A man after a quick buck. Sorry Angry to piss down on your parade....but where's the rest of it...???....5000% of the drawing is missing.....!!!! Have a look at the attached .jpg's and please note 20% of the 1600 layers aren't even turned on (for clarity purposes). To be fair, it is Model Space. I knew I should have made the challenge for $1000.00....!!!! Please feel free to forward me direct, your .SKF file....and I will send you mine. It has been re-worked through LT of course....!!!

Hi Ric This what you wanted? It would prob look more complete if you posted the xref files also, but I opened what you posted no probs. :-) FWIW the SKF is 670K HTH "Ric Norris" wrote in message news:412ea438_1@newsprd01... > An A1 .bmp image of you....???....now THAT's something I could trace > over.....!!!

Ric Interesting, but doesn't your company use QuickCAD rather than LT?

Yep.....I am the only one in the company that uses a professional CAD program. The other 250+ CAD users within the company have to settle with QuickCAD.....and ain't that a prick of a concept....!!!! http://users.bigpond.net.au/cavedrawings "Paul Jackson" wrote in message news:412fecbb$1_2@newsprd01... > Ric > Interesting, but doesn't your company use QuickCAD rather than LT? > > Paul Perplexed > > > > "Ric Norris" wrote in message > news:412f21a6$1_1@newsprd01... >> Winner is found.....no more responses please. >> >> Ric Norris. >> http://users.bigpond.net.au/cavedrawings >> >> >> "Joe Robertaccio" wrote in message >> news:26865767.1093439883843.JavaMail.jive@jiveforum1.autodesk.com... >> > Hi Folks, >> > I'm a Public Health Engineer in New York State and have developed in >> > QuickCAD 8 standardized drawings for onsite wastewater disposal >> > systems. >> > These I hope to post on the Web for all to use. >> > >> > I find that I can save them in the native CAD or SFK formats in > QuickCAD, >> > but the bit maps are lost when I try to save as DXF or DWG files with >> > QuickCAD. >> > >> > My question is will upgrading to AutoSketch 9 allow me to properly save >> > these files in the DXF or DWG formats without losing the native bitmap >> > images? >> > >> > I'm doing this on my own, trying to help the smaller engineers and new >> > engineering companies and have my own limited funds to expend trying to >> > make these up.

There are programs that may be able to convert your files. Post your email address or email me directly. Joe Robertaccio wrote: > I'm not that familiar with PDF files. I am using size "D" (22*34) paper as my setup. My goal is to allow an engineer the freedom to change what he feels he needs to change due to the conditions he finds onsite, while easily producing a professional (and easy to review) plan which is of high quality. Although this is based on New York State Codes, these plans could be used for at least 15 states in the northease and central part of the country with minor modifications.. I'm not shue if the other states use, but probibly t is basically the same.....

Thanks, but you assistance is not nessecary. After reading the enlighteded posts on this chat board I decided I needed to get the data into a Autocad Native Format.

A little looking around on the web delivered a produce for free that had the capability to convert the bit map images into DXF darwings. Thus I was able to the use raster to vector software to make native DXF and DWG files and use them. This has worked well. Anyone interested in the drawing details for their own use I can email them....

Please send. It may do a better job than my current software. Joe Robertaccio wrote: > Thanks, but you assistance is not nessecary.
