If you are experiencing an Associative Network Evaluation Error message when you open a drawing in AutoCAD, you came to the right place.
Associative Network Evaluation Error
The object cannot be resolved or value limit has been exceeded.
Inconsistent associative objects may display geometry and grips incorrectly and update in unexpected ways when edited. You can undo to restore the associative object to its previous state.
This error occurs when objects within an associative array are on a locked layer. This would be preventing the associativity from being updated.
To resolve the error, allow AutoCAD to update the associativity of all the objects in the drawing by unhiding, thawing, and unlocking all layers.
