Add a New Feature Class to an FDO Data Source
 
 
 

Use Schema Editor to create a feature class and define its properties.

NoteThe coordinate system for the map automatically matches your database. You do not have to assign a coordinate system to the map itself, unless you want to transform the data to a different coordinate system. Edit in the same coordinate system as your database, when possible. If the data is in different coordinate systems, edit one layer at a time. That way, you are always editing in a coordinate system that matches your data.

Open or create a drawing using a map template

Check that the database is set up to work with the AutoCAD Map 3D and that you have the proper privileges and credentials

Connect to the data source containing features to edit and create a version, if the organization requires it

Create a feature class and specify its allowable geometry types and properties
