Fixing an Autodesk Batch Save Utility script error when using Autolisp

Last week I introduced the Autodesk Batch Save Utility which installs as part of Civil 3D 2019.  I am hoping many of you have given it a try in an effort to perhaps clean your older drawings.

I did, however, discover an possible error you may receive using one of the sample scripts, and I would like to address how to fix it, and maybe give you an insight into creating your own scripts for your use.

Autodesk Batch Save Utility

Included in Autodesk Civil 3D 2019 is the Autodesk Batch Save Utility

You can use the Autodesk Batch Save Utility to open and save multiple drawing and template files at once to a specified version of Autodesk Civil 3D.

You can also use the Autodesk Batch Save Utility to run custom scripts as part of the batch operation. For example, you can run a script to perform a series of commands such as -PURGE and AUDIT on multiple drawings.

Autodesk Civil Engineering Data Translator available for download

Autodesk has released their newest Civil Engineering Data Translator for Civil 3D 2016-2019.  Unlike previous versions, this one is now a stand-alone program instead of an additional toolset within Civil 3D.

The Civil Engineering Data Translator allows customers to translate data back and forth between Autodesk Civil 3D and Bentley Geopak or InRoads software. The data is limited to geometry COGO points and alignments and surface data.

Users will need to be signed in with their Autodesk account to use the software.
