Gustavo,

 

My assumption is that you created some reinforcement drawings in Robot that you want to open in ASD Reinforcement. Could you attach the rtd file with the drawing you want to open in ASD and describe what was the way you tried to export the drawings from Robot to ASD please?

Dear Romanich and Artur,

 

I have been having a lot of ASD crashs nowadays, I don't know if it has been happing with everybody but I have it installed in two computers (my office and my notebook) and both have been crashing a lot, even if it is just opened on the back

 

Romanich, I  followed your suggestion because, due too the Autocad crashs, I had uninstalled the ASD 2012. I was not able to open the previous versions but I am able to open the dwg files if I export again from Robot.

 

Artur, I did the export from Robot the way I always do. Go to results> Structural Detailing> choose the Regional settings of my choice.

 

I tried to open the dwg file from my office computer too and I received the same error message for the previous files. 

 

Should I have to re-install the 2012 version? Or there is something else that I can do usign Regit?

 

Attached you find one of the files that had crashed.

 

Thanks

 

Gustavo

As far as I can see this is the entirely different situation then I posted the answer for.

 

Gustavo, could you describe me in details how you created this file and what happened next (which version you used to create it, which version the file was modified with, did you saved the file after the recover process etc.). Thank you for your help.

Dear Artur,

 

I modeled the project using Revit 2013, then sent to Robot 2013 where I included the loads, loads combinations, and run the provided reinforcement module.

 

After I had checked all the beams results, I did Results > Structural Detailing, choose my regional settings and then sent to ASD 2013 (I don't have the ASD 2012 version installed in my notebook any more, but I have Robot and Revit 2012 and 2013 installed).

 

During the transferred from Robot 2013 to ASD 2013, the ASD crashes sometimes during the message "Reinforcement drawings - Arranging elements of the drawings"  (as it has been doing constantly nowadays) but the files were created.

 

Then, when I tried to open the exported files, I received the error message and even if I save a recovered file, I was not able to penned it.

 

Today, I followed Romanich suggestion and I have been able to export form Robot 2013 and open in ASD 2013. But I am doing all the exportation again form Robot 2013 to ASD 2013 even thou ASD 2013 have been constantly crashing ... I don't know how many "Autodesk - Thank you" messages I had already received.

 

Thanks

 

Gustavo

1. Please send me the rtd file with the drawing you tried to export to ASD

2. Do you have the dwg file saved before you tried to recover it? If yes, could you send me this file too?

3. Have you sent the crash reports? If yes, what was the email address you typed in the corresponding report field?

4. Start ASD. Start a new project in ASD Reinforcement selecting RBCR-033.dwt template. Open your file. The file should be opened with no problems.

Dear Artur,

 

I had to export all the beams again and then open in ASD for final detailings

 

I have been sending all the error messages, and ASD is crashing constantally .. . you will see there.

 

The e-mail address for the reports is Gustavo.C.Vasconcellos@gmail.com

 

Remember, ASD has been crashing even if I am not working on it, if it is open and I am working in Robot or Revit, it crashs.

 

It was happing many times, then I decided to uninstall the ASD 2012 version ... and it kept crashing...

 

Due to the amount of crashs I have to clean the windows registries (using tune up utilities tools software) many times a day. Please, verify what can I do.

 

Thanks

 

Gustavo

Gustavo,

 

Using the dwg file you attached could you check the following scenario please:

 

Start ASD. Start a new project in ASD Reinforcement selecting RBCR-033.dwt template. Open your file. The file should be opened with no problems.
