The "ArcGIS for AutoCad" tool with WMS keeps giving FDO errors and is unreliable so we have procedure for putting cropped raster (TIF images) from ArcGIS into AutoCAD that has been used for years. We do not use ArcGIS's export world file function since ArcGIS doesn't allow for precise specific rectangle exports in Data View. We do all exporting from ArcGIS in Layout View.
Basically will build a world file through several complex manual tasks in ArcGIS and AutoCAD. (i.e. shape ArcGIS's data frame to what is needed, write down coordinates from 2 corners of data frame in ArcGIS, draw a rectangle in AutoCAD based on these coordinates, insert the tif image, scale, etc.)
Just wondering if anyone knows of a better way to accomplish this?
