Hi guys. Long time user of Hurricane looking for help.
I get drawings (DWG files) exported from a 3D plant design software package called Aveva E3D. The DWG files are Mechanical GAs from E3D that we need to use as xref in AutoCAD. The coordinates between E3D and AutoCAD don’t align (they never have or will).
My task is to move all DWG objects to the correct coordinates in the exported DWG files so they can be used as xrefs by other disciplines. Revised files are exported nightly.
This is what I need to do: • The DWGs contain a circle on a layer O-GRID-DIMS • It’s the only circle or object on that layer • Find the center of that circle (which is 0,0,0 in E3D) • Move all objects from the center of that circle to coordinate 0,0,0
The end goal is to create a batch process requiring no user action that we can use on a daily basis to update these xrefs from the 3D plant design package. E3D DWG sample attached.
