I am looking for a way to change globally, the working units and drawing limits within AutoCAD 2007. 99% of my drawings are in millimeters and I set the limits to 1500x1500. Seems like there should be a way to change the default settings of inches and 12x9?? Any help would be greatly appreciated..
Myself being a newbie converted from ProE I don't understand the principle behind having to set up units in part/assemblies and then once again in the drawings. I have always created models in the past using ProE with all my unit/tolerance/precision values enbedded in the part. I've done the same with a simple Solidworks part and now time to create the drawing. I imported the dimensions into the drawing and all my hard work of setting up the design unit intent in the part seem to be gone. It looks like I now have to go and recreate all my unit needs. This means making some units fractional, 2 pls or 3 pls decimal and some with or without tolerance. Is there a setting I'm missing in my drawing document properties that import the dimensions as modeled in the part/assembly without the need to duplicate work efforts?
Hi, I'm having problems figuring out how to do the following: Instead of just using fixed defaults for saveDir and projectDir (such as ./artist_states and ./simulation respectively - and I don't care how these were set - either by .cdsenv entry or use of envSetVal) , I would like to have projectDir and saveDir follow the library of the schematic being simulated. In other words, if I opened MyLib->MyCell->schematic and then invoked Analog Artist, I would like the projectDir to already be defaulted to ./simulation/MyLib and I would like the saveDir to already be defaulted to ./simulation/MyLib/artist_states. Similarly, if I then opened YourLib->YourCell->schematic and invoked Analog Artist or just chose YourLib->YourCell->schematic from the Setup - Design form , I would want these two values to automatically be changed to ./simulation/YourLib and ./simulation/YourLib/artist_states respectively. I've thought about adding skill to run after a trigger event, but I am not sure which trigger is appropriate. Also, I haven't found a foolproof method of grabbing the library name which works under all the different ways to switch what will be simulated. Additionally, it would be awesome if whatever solution would also work for Ocean as well. Any and all help/ideas would be great. Thanks. Whisker
