CAD General / Re: Print to grey scales

I believe what OP wants is a driver based method of printing in grayscale, like you can do in the DWF driver.

DWF to PDF.pc3 is the plotter file, colors are determined by the plot style .ctb.

Read Post 3 Reply #2 again. OP already addressed this.

If the OP is in regards to attached images which have color, then yes they will plot in color. AutoCAD does not have photo editing capabilities, nor do I forsee them incorporating it.  The only real solution is to edit the photos prior to attachment.

.NET / Re: Contract Hourly Rate Question
« Last post by Master_Shake on January 16, 2017, 08:43:04 am »
All depends on what your time is worth to you. The average salary for a .NET developer is mid-60's, which can then be broken down to an hourly rate of about $32 / hour.  A quick review of upwork reveals the average hourly rate is about $20-40 (depending on location).

DWF to PDF.pc3 is the plotter file, colors are determined by the plot style .ctb. Choose a color from your drawing and cross reference it with your plot style.

Quite a bit

3dFace - Creates a three-sided or four-sided surface in 3D space.

Mesh - A mesh model consists of vertices, edges, and faces that use polygonal representation, including triangles and quadrilaterals, to define a 3D shape. Unlike solid models, mesh has no mass properties. However, as with 3D solids, you can create primitive mesh forms such as boxes, cones, and pyramids.

Surface
A surface is a 3D object that is an infinitely thin shell. There are 2 types of surfaces: procedural and NURBS.

Procedural surfaces can be associative, maintaining relationships with other objects so that they can be manipulated as a group.
NURBS surfaces are not associative. Instead, they have control vertices that allow you to sculpt shapes in a more natural way.

Solid - A solid is a 3D object that has mass

I created some code you may be interested in. It is very quick and makes new layers and redefines ones that are not correct. It reads all the layer information from a file and it even has a method to save drawing layer settings. [ https://www.theswamp.org/index.php?topic=23173.msg291095#msg291095 ]

It never made it past the "concept" stage but, honestly, it is more then safe to use (I just labeled it `concept' because I never got more then a few minutes at a time to work on it so I didn't get a lot of time to look for bugs and/or better methods).

I cannot reproduce this. Maybe you have an invalid value for 'lWgt' in the latest version of your code?

Hi

What is the difference between 3DFace, Mesh, Surface and Solid ?
