FME is typically used to exchange data, but it can also be used as a powerful tool to automate the transformation of spatial data into technical CAD diagrams. In this presentation I will show how I embedded FME into an application process to create on-the-fly AutoCAD diagrams for communication manholes. This involves determining the local spatial reference, calculating the extents required, clipping the data, creating labels for the data, filtering the data to set line colors and styles, and then exporting the file using linked workspaces.
