The application can be used with vanilla AutoCAD or any other AutoCAD vertical application like Autodesk® AutoCAD® Map 3D, Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D®, Autodesk® AutoCAD® Architecture enz.

Known Issues

  • If no world-file is supplied or the world file is not in the same folder as the image the application will not find the world file and will not insert the image.
  • If no image is displayed it could be that the units in the drawing are not setup correctly. Check your units.
  • Drag and Drop from Windows Explorer into AutoCAD Window only works when GeoRefInsert is started once.
  • If drag and drop doesn't work, this is due to Lapis Geofinder 2.26 is loaded as well. This will be resolved in later versions.
