DWG to FDO: Moving Blocks to SDF (with Attributes)

I have had a lot of questions lately on how to move complex DWG files with Rotated Blocks with Attributes to FDO.

(Feature Data Objects include storage such as Oracle Spatial, SQL Server Spatial, SHP, SDF, mySQL, etc.)

Moving from DWG to Universal Spatial Storage (USS) is key for any organization wanting to share data or maintain a “Truth” to their assets.

I have created a video that shows how to take Blocks with 3 Attributes and export them to a SDF file – which can then be put in the SQL Server or Oracle etc.

I use the existing block as a symbol with FDO, so please keep your individual DWG block libraries on your system.  For example, I have a folder with all my utility blocks – each block exploded in an individual DWG file.
