“AutoCAD Map 3D 2011:Drawing Cleanup” is one complete topic from our popular book of AutoCAD Map tutorials, “Digging Into AutoCAD Map 3D 2011 – Level 1 Training” in the Kindle format. We have separated the book into sections, taking an “a la carte” approach, allowing you to select just the topics you are interested in or need at the time.
AutoCAD drawings often contain small errors which might not show up in plots, and can even be difficult to see in the editor without zooming in to extreme magnification. However, these errors can cause problems when performing analytical functions and deriving data from objects. AutoCAD Map 3D includes powerful drawing cleanup tools for locating and fixing these errors.
One very important reason to ensure your geometry is properly cleaned is that it is essential for many analytical processes. If lines are not snapped precisely to endpoints and intersections, or polygons appear to share exact boundaries but don’t, major problems can occur later.
AutoCAD Map 3D is a set of specialized tools for cartography and GIS, which are built on top of AutoCAD. It includes all of the features in AutoCAD, with the addition of specialized tools and capabilities used to import, edit and produce geospatial content; analyze data; and output maps for geographic information systems. AutoCAD Map 3D tools are also integrated into AutoCAD Civil 3D.
