  1. Hello, This is a known Windows only problem. Our engineers are already working to fix it. Thank you for reporting!
  2. Hello @OliviaD, Unfortunately the attached DWG file is not a valid file, it can not be opened or recovered in AutoCAD too. Do you know how the file has been created? Thank you, Nina
  3. @dollymama94, ODA Platform Error means, that for some reason we are not passing the export data correctly to the ODA Platform libraries, which are responsible to save them as a DWG or DXF file. Would you, please, send the Vectorworks document directly to me, so that we can look at the problem? Thank you, Nina
  4. @ericjhberg, have you tried VW2020?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. @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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. @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
  11. 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
  12. All, we are working on the DWG/DXF export issue.
  13. 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?
  14. Would you, please, send the Vectorworks document directly to me? Thanks, Nina
  15. @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.
