    Revit Import Not Working

    Hi @Sky, Yes, we can confirm, that there are issues when these files are imported with option 2D and 3D. This is a know issue and engineers are working to fix it. Please, for the 3D graphics use the default import option 3D Model View.

    dwg layers to VWX

    When you choose to import a DWG file, you will see the DXF/DWG Import Options dialog. To open the dialog with the Advanced import options, use the "Advanced..." button and then switch to the Classes/Layers tab there.

    dwg layers to VWX

    @MAnderson10, Have you tried to import DXF layers as Vectorworks layers? In general, DXF layers correspond to Vectorworks classes, but if you need them as layers, it is up to you to do that.

    Walls Export to DWG

    Hello @nubourne, Please, check that before you start your export, you have the current layer view set to Top. In this way you will export the 3D graphics of the hybrid objects. Best, Nina

    DWG Export Line Types

    Thank you for the files, @RussU! After analyzing the situation we found, that this is a problem with AutoCAD drawing regeneration. Executing REGEN command or some other action inside AutoCAD, which will require drawing to be regenerated, results in line types shown properly there. Thank you, Nina

    DWG Export Line Types

    @RussU, It could be a line type scale issue or, for some reason, create a line type failure on export. Would you, please, send the document you are exporting and the export settings you are using? You can do that privately, if you wish. Thank you, Nina

    Export to DWG from VW

    Hi @VW_Harry, One general thing when you want to export 3D graphics - have your active layer before export set to Top view, not to Top/Plan view. If you are using Top/Plan view, you will export 2D views for the hybrid objects. Using just attached TO_CAD.vwx I was able to see the problem with trusses exported as 2D only even I set the active layer to Top view. Seems this is related to the (sometimes) wrongly passed info to the DWG exporter while we create the objects - we will analyze the case in deep. I will let Vasko @Vasil Kitanov know about this. There is, however, an easy way to avoid this problem - open the document, set the active layer view to Top, then open View menu, uncheck Unified View, then open again View menu and check Unified View. After that export using Default settings and export will be correct (note - you have 2D only graphics in the Venue layer). Thank you for reporting and hope the workaround will help you until we fix the problem. Best regards, Nina TO_CAD.zip

    Export Lighting Devices to DWG

    All, we are working on the DWG/DXF export issue.

    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?

    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.
