Map Export Object Type Issue

In AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 while exporting polyline to shape object in Map , you will get Fatal error. Also you will not receive the object type selection Point, Line, Polygon or Text in the Map Export dialog selections tab.

At the same time if you did it with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008, then you will be able to do it properly.

To overcome this you need  to modify Mapexport.ini

Location of  mapexport.ini : C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\C3D 2009

Then open mapexport.ini

Scroll down to the [SHP] section and change it to this

Note the EntTypes values.

As you modify ini file, you will get the dialog as shown below

Map Export Shape Dialog

Now you the selection dialog as well will be able to export it in to shape.

[caption id="attachment_26" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Template layer"]Template layer[/caption]

Last day I came across a intresting question, One of my collague asks me How to delete a layers from default Civil  3D NCS template??

I look at to him, not a tough job for me ( I think so!!!!)

Hmmm. . .  Now the issue begin. . . .  when I open default NCS template and tried to delete it using Purge  ( As usual ).  . . Oh god . . .it's not deleting layer.

Now the simple task become a challange for me.

At last after long time digging I found the solution for this.

There is only one way to do it.

At command line type " LAYDEL"

Then it asks for selection or name, choose name.

After that it opend dialog as below.

Layer Delete Dialog

In this dialog select layer which you want to delete and then say O.K.
