AutoCAD 2011, Inventor 2011 and other CAD applications of the 2011 family share a common library of rendering materials.
Due to the shared nature of these libraries, they are not uninstalled automatically when uninstalling one of the 2011-products (the would be missing in the other products). It is neccessary to uninstall them separately - before you uninstall the CAD product.
The installation of the 2011-family products contains 3 different material libraries. They differ in the size (precision, granularity) of their texture bitmap images:
These libraries have to be uninstalled in a specific order - from the largest to the smallest one (reverse order in which they are installed).
- Autodesk Material Library 2011 (CM)
resolution: cca 256x256 pixels, size: 176MB, required for AutoCAD, Inventor and Revit (Protein UI)
- Autodesk Material Library 2011 Base Image Library (ILL)
resolution: cca 512x512 pixels, size: 255MB
- Autodesk Material Library 2011 Medium Image Library (ILM)
resolution: cca 1024x1024 pixels, size: 608MB
If you need to reinstall the libraries, you can do this from the product installation media - again in the order from the smallest to the largest one. You can find the installation archives in the following folders:
(Autodesk Material Library 2011, CM)
(Autodesk Material Library 2011 Base Image Library, ILL)
(Autodesk Material Library 2011 Medium Image Library, ILM)
