    DWG export - not exporting space label

    I think, that the export problem in your original file and the problem given here are different issues, but still there might be some relation. @Jim Wilson, do you have any thoughts about the space issue?

    DWG export - not exporting space label

    Would you, please, send the Vectorworks document directly to me? Thanks, Nina

    Export dxf profiles for custom tooling

    @mgebel, I think, that the only thing you need to export is the profile (the polyline, which you used to create the extrude). Export the polyline to DXF (Text) file format, version 12. You might also need to temporary set the Vectorworks 2D conversion resolution to a lower value - I think Low will be OK in your case. 2D conversion resolution setting is taken into account on export and controls the number of vertices of the exported polyline. This option can be found in Tools --> Options --> Vectorworks Preferences --> Edit tab. After export, do not forget to restore the option to its previous value.

    DWG Export Files

    @Haydenovative, You are receiving .pat files because the "Export Hatch pattern files" option is set to ON AND you have hatched objects inside your drawing. If you haven't had previously hatched objects in your drawing, .pat files would not be created even the export option to create them is set to ON. Compared to previous version, compared to Vectorworks document size, or compared to something else? You are exporting Design layers only, i.e. no sheet data will be exported at all; When you export VW Layers as DXF/DWG Layers, according to the chosen options, invisible VW Layers will be exported as invisible DXF/DWG Layers, BUT all the objects from the invisible classes will not be exported. Also: be sure that when you are exporting Design Layer only, your current layer before export is a design layer, not a sheet layer.

    DWG impor Scaling issue

    Did you check the units you use to import in Vectorworks?

    Export DWFx

    Are you using a custom sheet size? There are predefined paper sizes, used by the third-party DWG/DXF, DWF and DWFx writing libraries. When a custom sheet size is used, the most appropriate predefined paper size is chosen. Seems that there is no good approximation for the 6300 mm long sheet. Exporting to a different DWF type will not work because of the already mentioned reason. Exporting from a Design layer should show all the objects. If you want, you could send the file, so that I can confirm the cases.

    It might be, but also might be some different issue, which we need to investigate. All the previous fixes are already in VW2019. If you send the document and export settings, we could do more investigations. As a rule, when there is a need of special document edits in order to complete some export or whatever else, you must work in a copy of your original document.

    Reducing exported DWG files size

    @jmr, Would you, please, send the document which you are talking about so that we could analyze the export?

    Lineweights not printing to PDF

    I am using Adobe Acrobat Reader and do not see a problem with the lineweights. Attached are two PDFs, one is direct publishing to PDF, without rasterize option selected, and the other is print-to-PDF using the Publish menu command. Both PDFs look in this way: PublishPrint as PDF.pdf PublishToPDF.pdf

    DWG Import Error

    This is a bug, which was fixed long ago. Probably you are using an old Vectorworks version.

    No PDF option in File/Publish

    @hinnam, Publishing to PDF is not allowed in Fundamentals. You could try the Cloud Publish instead: Best regards, Nina

    Import turbocad issues

    @amberhine, this message would appear, if you are trying to open the file. If you want to import a DWG file, you have to use menu command File-->Import-->Import Single DXF/DWG...

    Problems importing large DWG files

    Hi Mike, Thank you for the file! I was able to see a delay while reading 3D solid entities and creating Vectorworks Generic solids - which is in general a slower operation. The DWG also contains more than a hundred layouts, each one containing 2 viewports - and creation of the viewports also takes time. There is a delay on the final stage of the import (Finishing... stage), which is due to the centering on internal origin procedure. We usually recommend to Center the drawing on import, especially when there are objects far away the internal origin, but if you want you could avoid this using the location import option Align with Internal Origin. After the import you could center the drawing using menu command Tools-->Origin-->Center Drawing on Internal Origin. For this exact DWG imported graphics corresponds to the graphics shown in AutoCAD and there is no difference between Vectorworks 2018 and Vectorworks 2019. Please, if/when you have a DWG, which imports differently in both versions, send it to me so that we can find the reason and fix it. Thanks, Nina

    Problems importing large DWG files

    Except the numbers, what else is written in the Progress dialog? Would you, please, send the DWG, which demonstrates the problem? This is another issue, just exposed by importing specific DWG files. No DWG import changes were done between the versions, but, of course, from a customers' point of view this is a DWG import regression... We are working to fix it. Please, send a test file, so that we can analyze the differences in our support and fix the problems? Thank you, Nina

    VW19 - DWG import generates strange result

    Hello bjoerka, I believe, that this problem was already for sp3. It is related to the proper regeneration of the drawing - i.e. objects are imported correctly, in their right positions, but due to a missing drawing regeneration graphics does not look as expected. This additional regeneration was not necessary in previous versions, but for VW2019 it has to be done. This problem appears only for some files, which is the reason to not been found and fixed earlier. For now I could propose two workarounds: 1) Import the DWG in Vectorworks and immediately after the import has finished, without switching to another layer or zooming, save the document, close it and then open it again - everything should be regenerated correctly. 2) Import the DWG using the Location import option "Align with Internal Origin". Graphics will be drawn correctly. If you need the drawing to be centered, then use the menu command Tools-->User Origin-->Center Drawing on Internal Origin. (Note: Importing with Location option "Center first import, align..." (for a first import) or "Center on Internal Origin" are equivalent to importing with Location option "Align with Internal Origin" PLUS using the menu command Tools-->User Origin-->Center Drawing on Internal Origin.) If you still have a problem using the workarounds, please, send the DWG file directly to me. Best Regards, Nina
