The AutoCAD Architecture-MEP 2011 Object
Enabler makes AEC objects come to life in 2011 releases of AutoCAD, AutoCAD Electrical, AutoCAD Mechanical, AutoCAD Map 3D, AutoCAD Civil 3D, Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk 3ds Max Design, Autodesk Navisworks Manage, and Autodesk Navisworks Simulate. For earlier versions of these products, VIZ, and AutoCAD Mechanical Desktop please refer to www.autodesk.com\enablers for the
correct version to download. This new release leverages ObjectDBX technology
allowing object data created in AutoCAD Architecture or AutoCAD MEP to be accessed outside the AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD MEP environments.
Experience AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD MEP
2011 functionality and flexibility including:
Receive DWG files created in Architectural Desktop R1, R2, R2 DACH, R2i, 3, 3.3, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, AutoCAD Architecture 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, Autodesk Building Systems R1, R2, 3, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2007.1, as well as AutoCAD MEP 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011.
View and modify AEC objects using AutoCAD commands such as MOVE, COPY, and STRETCH.
Improved object snap support.
Elimination of proxy graphics messages.
Supplement an office that has a mix of AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD MEP and other AutoCAD-based seats, allowing improved interoperability between users. In AutoCAD Map 3D 2011, access and query data from different drawings created in AutoCAD Architecture or AutoCAD MEP.
AutoCAD Architecture-MEP Object Enablers are freeware applications distributed to Autodesk customers at no charge for the purpose of fully accessing AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD MEP drawing files. Without this object enabler installed, you can share drawings using proxy graphics representations or the Export to AutoCAD command.
Label curve objects may not plot at the same rotation as in the drawing viewport. The cause of this behavior is due to a rotation being applied by the Drawing Orientation within the plot dialog. By default, the labels will have the proper rotation if the Drawing Orientation is set to Landscape. If the Drawing Orientation is set to Portrait, some labels may be rotated 180 degrees. To workaround this problem, set the Drawing Orientation in the plot dialog to Landscape and then back to Portrait, click on the "Apply to Layout" button and cancel out of the dialog box. This will cause the settings from the dialog box to be saved back into the drawing, so the next time that you run the PLOT command, since the current layout has been updated, the labels should plot in the correct orientation.
