Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Import objects from a PDF underlay, part of AutoCAD 2017 New Features.
- [Voiceover] We're staying with our…05_PDFImport.dwg file.…And what I've done is I've attached…as a PDF underlay the PDF we used…in previous videos, the Revit one.…And you'll find that in your lynda.com exercise files.…Now what we're going to look at now…is importing objects from a PDF underlay.…We're going to import the objects into our drawing,…the 05_PDFImport.dwg file,…but what we're going to do is import them…as a single AutoCAD block.…
So let's have a look at how that works.…You can see that the attachment is all ready.…There's the underlay there with that red outline.…So what I need to do now is type…pdfimport again like I did previously…and select the underlay,…which is here.…So I click on it,…and it now prompts me for…the first corner of the area to import.…You can see that on the dynamic input…and on the command line.…Now before we do anything else,…type s for settings and then Enter,…and you'll go into the Settings dialogue box.…What we want to do is import as a block.…Now another thing you can do…is if you go to Options here,…
