Access Titleblock Info without Autocad?

181 Views, 3 Replies

I have an Inventor license that doesn't include Autocad.  We have some old Autocad drawings that I would like to write a program to extract the titleblock info which I believe is probably done with attributes.  Not sure though. 

 

Anyhow my question is, is there any way for me to get to that info without having a seat of Autocad? In Inventor we can use apprentice to do similar things.

Hi,

 

to access DWG-file content you need a program to read/evaluate it, either AutoCAD or something like OpenDWG or RealDWG. But according to this statement:

>> We have some old Autocad drawings

You at least had an AutoCAD active, why don't you use this license then?

Hi Alfred,

 

Thanks, I was afraid of that.  I work at a company whose main office is in Austria, These are old files of theirs, and none of them do any programing.

Hi,

 

>> I work at a company whose main office is in Austria

If it is a help then let us know if we can help in your Austrian office. If nobody has development-knowledge there then maybe we can help to add that (either the knowledge or to get the job done).

Send me a PM if you see any possibilities (I tried to send a PM to you but it does not work as the system sees 2 "KentKeller") :smileywink:
