Object Enablers for Autocad 2010

N/A

Are there any FactoryCAD object enablers for Autocad 2010? We get FactoryCAD v11/Autocad
2007 files from supplier - and we have Autocad 2010. We only need to view/reference
the info, there is no need to change.
Thanks,

Hello Andy
V14 of the Factory programs will be supported on AutoCAD 2010. The planned release
of v14 is in the Feb timeframe of next year. Therefore, at this time we do not have
any Factory enablers for AutoCAD 2010.
However, if you are just looking at viewing/referencing 2007/v11 files on your machine,
then you could request your supplier to send you an AutoCAD drawing with the Factory
objects saved with their proxy graphics. To save an AutoCAD drawing with the proxy
graphics you would have to do the following:
1. Select the "Save with Detailed Proxy Graphics" (F-Tools >> Export Utilities)
command.
2. Hit enter at the command line prompt to activate the routine.
3. You will see a prompt that says "Draw alternate proxy? :"
4. Enter "yes".
5. The command will return the following at the command line prompt "CIMF_DRAW_PROXY_MODE_BALLOONS_YES"

If you are in plan view and save the drawing, the drawing will be saved with 2d
information for the objects. If you save the drawing in an isometric view, then
the drawing will be saved with 3d information for the objects.
This setting is saved for the AutoCAD session only. If you restart AutoCAD, then
you will have to repeat the steps. This will also increase the size of the drawing
based on the amount of FactoryCAD geometry there is in the drawing and also on the
view (plan or isometric).
Hope this helps.

Deepak

Thanks for the quick reply. We have (1) seat of FactoryCAD v11 and 2007 here. So
we can do try for what we need to reference rather then going back to supplier.
Thanks again!
