Bad Entity name
« on: January 19, 2023, 08:21:00 PM »
Has anybody every seen something like this. 
Using the objects coordinates, it's in the middle of nowhere and invisible (even after UNISOLATE).

Note: I left off (1. ...), because it's just garble
Code: [Select]
Visual LISP Console
(setq corruptobj (entget (handent "20B252")))
((-1 . <Entity name: 22951557e20>) (0 . "CADWorx_Plant_Component") (5 . "20B252") (102 . "{ACAD_XDICTIONARY") (360 . <Entity name: 22951557e30>) (102 . "}") (102 . "{ACAD_REACTORS") (330 . <Entity name: 22951555a10>) (102 . "}") (330 . <Entity name: 22951533ad0>) (100 . "AcDbEntity") (67 . 0) (8 . "18027-SEAL POT_PU-1003$0$Equip") (100 . "AcDbModelerGeometry") (70 . 1)  (290 . 1) (2 . "{85f06067-f75a-294e-b04b-1e54793bb661}") (100 . "AcDb3dSolid") (350 . <Entity name: 0>))

But notice here, I try to select it, and I get "Bad Entity name", of which I've not ever personally seen before.
Code: [Select]
Command: _SELECT
Select objects: (handent "20B252")
<Entity name: 22951557e20>
<Bad Entity name: 51557E20>

You dont need to select the handent is doing that for you.

Code: [Select]
: ERASE
Select entities, edges or faces: (handent "11C46")
<Entity name: 642f06a0>
Select entities, edges or faces:
press enter and is gone

Select or Erase, or anything, returns a Bad Entity...
Select was used to locate the object in question.

Code: [Select]
Command: ERASE
Select objects: (handent "20B252")
<Entity name: 229dbd44620>
<Bad Entity name: DBD44620>

The entget was to show that it should be a visible object (solid).

Have you tried running AUDIT on the dwg?

Have you tried running AUDIT on the dwg?

I have.  I don't have the output, but the first audit was done without repairing, and it found 2 errors.
Second run with repair, found and only repaired 1 error.  It wasn't not a visible object.

Still remains is the invisible 3d object with Bad Entity Name.

If the problem wasn't so rampant across so many drawings, I would just perform a copy paste into a new drawing, and be done with it.  Ultimately my goal is to find and purge many drawings of these types of bad enames, but I was hoping someone here has seen this before so that I can try to find some characteristic to help with the purge.
There are more examples, but I figured simple questions get quicker answers.
Ex. I have identical CADWorx objects reported in the .dwg model space dictionary with the exact same xyz, but only one is visible.  The other reports identical dxf data, but cannot be selected, and handent returns Bad Entity Name.

Of the 500+ project drawings investigated, I have 48 drawings with 337 duplicate (invisible) objects (no coincidence it is CADWorx).  So, erase the invisible one in lisp or .net is not sustainable because I haven't found a means to discover which one is visible and which is not.  Only then can I write something to iterate and purge the drawings.

I don't know off hand, but it wouldn't hurt to post a sample dwg.

If all the duplicate invisible objects are cadworx entities, have you contacted them for support?

Yeah.. I went back to the one with the handle in the first post, and others had already created a new version...
But the one attached is an invisible object, but doesn't return the bad ename error.  Still a problem, it just got slightly more complicated.  Some invisible objects have bad enames, and others are just invisible.

Upgrade is the response. 
No dev analysis.
Though upgrade is doable, now that they've released SP1, but it doesn't solve the immediate problem.

Your dwg has quite a few problems:
- Autocad 2013 > purge > fatal error

- AutoCAD2023 can clean the file but not completely:

Funny you mentioned ODA, because that's how we discovered the invisible duplicates (.net sdk), by indexing any object with two xyz duplicate coordinates.  I'll dig into their docs to see.  At least with a custom ODA audit, I can report what needs to be or should be deleted.

Thanks to all that tried helping me understand what's going on.  I'll ping back if I make some progress worth sharing.
