Problem in inheriting AcDbSurface in DBX project

Cann't we inherit AcDbSurface to derive my custom object? When my class inherit AcDbSurface or AcDbNurbsSurface, I got several error LNK2001 messages, such as "AcDbSurface::createInterferenceObjects". After I tried linking every lib provided, I still cann't compile the project.

Then I tried to inherit AcDbEntity to derive a custom object, but when AcDbSurface/AcDbNurbsSurface is instantiated as a member variable, the error LNK2001 errors show up again. So the second question is, is the AcDbSurface unavailable in DBX project?

Applications should not derive classes from the following:

  • AcDbDimension
  • AcDbSymbolTable, AcDbSymbolTableRecord, and all classes derived from them
  • AcDbBlockBegin
  • AcDbBlockEnd
  • AcDbSequenceEnd
  • AcDbSequenceEnd
  • AcDb2dPolyline
  • AcDb2dVertex
  • AcDb3dPolyline
  • AcDb3dPolylineVertex
  • AcDbPolygonMesh
  • AcDbPolygonMeshVertex
  • AcDbPolyFaceMesh
  • AcDbPolyFaceMeshVertex
  • AcDbFaceRecord
  • AcDbMInsertBlock
  • AcDbVertex

Apart from above list, deriving from AcDbSurface should be doable, these are some derived class

  • AcDbExtrudedSurface
  • AcDbLoftedSurface
  • AcDbPlaneSurface
  • AcDbRevolvedSurface
  • AcDbSweptSurface

Which version of AutoCAD you are using ?, if it is AutoCAD 2021, you may need to link acgeomEnt.lib, and also you need to load AcGeomEntObj.dbx

Thanks for your answering. Then how can I derive from the AcDbNurbSurface? I'm using ObjectArx 2021, and I created a DBX project using the arx wizard, and derived a custom object from AcDbEntity using the "ArxWizCustomObject" wizard in VS 2019 (because there is no AcDbNurbSurface, nor AcDbSurface in the opition of the wizard). Then I modified the codes generated manually to inherit AcDbNurbSurface. 

#pragma comment(lib, "acgeomEnt.lib") is used to link acgeomEnt.lib. And I got the following link error

The header and cpp files of the custom object are attached blow.

Hi,

I initially believe it is case in AutoCAD 2021,

But going back to previous release, deriving from AcDbSurface never possible, we didn't push the relevant libraries to public SDK.

 

I will get back to you on this.

Thanks I raised a Documentation ticket with Help and Learning team.

Thanks a lot. You mean it's a bug? Please inform me when it's fixed 😘

No, I don't mean it is bug 😊, after investigating I realized AcDbSurface was never designed to be inheritable, it is just this piece is missing in our documentation, next time when a developer would like to create a custom entity they can always check  this link what Entities can be derived and not.

OK, looks like I have to find an alternative solution. Thanks all the same.
