• Print 3d view in AutoCAD

    I have AutoCad 2002. When I command hide in a 3d view, the objects behind the faces do not show in the screen, but when I plot in a HP printer, the hiding does not work and all the wire frame is shown as if there were no faces. Please advise. Thanks

  • Can AutoCAD edit .cal drawings?

    I need to edit existing drawings that have been already scanned into our drawing vault, and some of them are saved as .cal file format. Can AutoCAD convert these drawings and open them for editing? There are a lot of them that need to be edited, so I am looking for the most expeditious way to do so.

  • Unable to Edit objects by command.

    I am unable to trim or dimension objects in a drawing of mine. It was working one second, and now when I select a command and snap to a point it would do anything. Has anyone experienced this before?
