I have about 170 DWG files that need to be clipped to their corresponding tile. Each tile is 14,000ft wide, 8,000ft height.
Each DWG file overlaps the tile border by 800ft:
Unfortunately, each DWG file is in its own directory, so I'm not sure if that makes coding a batch clip more difficult. The file we're working with will always be named like "###_2ft.dwg"
So my question is: How can I efficiently clip these DWG's and output them as feature class files?
I have thought about creating a fGeoDB to copy each DWG polyline file into, however, for whatever reason when expanding the DWG layer it takes ~30 seconds to show the annotation, point, polyline, etc.
I've checked out some guides using iteration in ModelBuilder, but I can't get the same results. Specifically posts like this. In that post, a user mentions constructing the geoprocessing command in notepad and using excel to help with filenames, but I'm not sure what the commands would be.
