Corrupt Drawings          



Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0x3b5cf24 Exception at 654fbd27h

unhandled exception

Who hasn't seen one of these errors at one time or another? How about while trying to OPEN a drawing? Oops, you know what that generally means, a corrupt drawing.

There are probably as many opinions regarding corrupt AutoCAD drawings as there are AutoCAD users. If you are reading this with a corrupt drawing in hand, you probably couldn't care less about how it got this way - you just want your drawing back. Here are some resources that might help.

Good luck.

Good stuff, R.K.

The TIPniques column of AUGI's HotNews ran a 4-part series on Drawing Recovery earlier this year.

Thanks Chris, I'll have to go check that out to see what I missed.

Actually... *I* care how DWG files get corrupted.

If you get stuck with a file you can't recover, you can send it to, and we'll see if we can fix it. Even if it was AutoCAD that broke it.
