I have been working on adding CAD data into ArcGIS with no success, it just did not show anything.
In the dwg file layer property when examine using ArcCatalog,all the values from coordinates tab and details tab showed as zeros. I think this might be the problem, anyone knows how to solve it?
Everything seems working fine in AutoCAD. And I did save the dwg file as older version like AutoCAD 2000, or R14, but still failed display in ArcMAP.
Please help, thanks.
I've been having the exact problem. The AutoCad drawings I need to use show 0 features in all categories in ArcCatalog (identical to the posted thumbnails), and there is nothing visible in the preview, nor if I bring the drawing into ArcMap (ArcEditor level) - if I "zoom to layer" I get a blank screen.
However, I did see the lines and other features in the previous poster's Glass.dwg with no trouble, and have been able to see a few other drawings in our network drive.
Is there some sort of setting in AutoCad that allows/disallows a drawing to be visible if imported into a GIS? I am still working in 9.3.1. Thanks.
I am having a similar problem. I have a CAD drawing from another company and I can see it fine in DWG TrueView 2010 program. But when I look at the file in ArcReader their seems to be nothing there..in table view or geogrpahy view. Any suggestions?
