AutoCAD Based Calculations (Ribbon/Toolbar/Location)

Button: Start Autocalcs


When starting the AutoCALC process, you get an error like this;

You are missing a --- refPoint to complete a JUMP. 

Clicking OK should allow the process to continue on



A reference point was used as the jump point reference point but was used elsewhere in the drawing as another node. 


Even if you delete all the reference points indicated plus the jumps, the drawing still remembers there was a duplicate and reports the error.


Unknown, but after verifying you no longer have that reference point ID in the drawing, you can click through the OK button and the process should continue.


If you don't want to see the error anymore, you can start a new drawing using a HydraCAD template, insert the problem drawing into it, then the error should go away.


To find the reference points in the drawing;

a) Isolate HYD, HYD2, & HYD5 layers so they're the only ones on

b) Type FIND in the command prompt, make sure to list results

Double-click the results to view the node.
