View IMPACT Reinforcement object without the program

How do I get my reinforcement objects drawn correctly on computers that do not have Impact Reinforcement installed?

Note

An alternative is actually to install IMPACT Reinforcement on these computers. Seeing the objects in the drawing does not require a license so no security system needs to be installed on these computers.

Generally

The principle of making third-party-developed objects (so-called custom objects) visible without installing the current software is called Proxy. For this to work, you must first make sure that the proxy objects are saved in the dwg file and that the recipient has switched on the view of them.

On the computer that saves the dwg file

Set the value of the system variable PROXYGRAPHICS to 1. This system variable is stored locally on the current computer. You can also set this variable via the SaveAs dialog box.

On the computer that wants to see the proxy objects

Set System variable PROXYSHOW to value 1. This system variable is stored locally on the current computer. You can also set this variable via the Options dialog box.
