    @EJM, Do you see this error when you try to export a specific document or it happens for all the documents? Please, check the destination - you might try to write the DWG somewhere where you do not have rights to write, the file path might be too long or you might have some not allowed chars in the file path. There are some rare cases, when this error might appear due to trying to write a wrongly defined object to the DWG file. Restarting Vectorworks is also something, which is good to try. We use ODA libraries to read and write DWG files and show this error when we receive, that something is wrong during saving the DWG. If this is the only document, for which you see this error or saving the DWG to another location does not help, please, send the document and an image of the used export options directly to me. Thank you, Nina
  2. This problem is reported as fixed for Vectorworks 2021 SP4.
  3. Hello @Bertf, Change of the direction of some of the polys, which contain arc type vertices, has been intentionally done in order to fix a problem, introduced in the third party libraries with associated hatches. Since you do not export hatches, more over your polys are not hatch filled, reversing of the polys is absolutely not necessary. I consider this a bug, which however needs to be fixed in the code. We will do the necessary corrections. Thank you, Nina
  4. Hello @Bertf, I will take a look at the issue and will let you know if this could be somehow avoided. Thank you for reporting, Nina
  5. Hello @Stu Wilson, The attached DWG file is "Unitless". You should know what units have been used to draw the graphics there and then choose them in the import options dialog. I suppose, that units for this DWG are Meters.
  6. Thanks for the files, @OllieBSD! I looked at them and they seem very simple ones. Import was successful for all of them and graphics was properly created in a new design layer - I dragged and dropped each of the DWGs in a new blank document and used the Default DXF/DWG Import options. Resultant VW2021 documents are attached. I am not sure what might have went wrong with your import... Can I see an example Vectorworks document, created as a result of the import?

  7. Hello @OllieBSD, There might not be any graphics in the DWG Model Space or you might have wrongly chosen to create symbols in the current document (if you use Import DXF/DWG or DWF menu command). Would it be possible to you to send an example DWG, which demonstrates the problem? You could send it directly to me. Thank you, Nina
  8. @Kevin K, In general you should not have troubles to import the text alignment correctly. Can we, please, have the DWG file, so that we can check what is going on during import? You could send the file directly to me. Thanks, Nina
  9. Hi @Jeremy Best, Yes, I received the document and confirmed, that the reported error is a false one. The problem was due to creation of a temporary symbol to represent the tile fills, but the name, which we tried to use for this symbol has been already taken. Failure to create the symbol was wrongly treated as lack of memory. As a workaround I proposed to Okpaku to not export tile fills, which worked for him. Problem is already fixed for VW2021 SP4. Best, Nina
  10. @Okpaku, There might be a problem with export of some object, which is wrongly reported in that way. Would you, please, send the document directly to me, so that I could analyze the issue?
  11. @pdm, It seems to me, that you are importing the DWG or DWF as reference. You should have the Reference checkbox set to OFF if you want to edit the drawing.
  12. @_c_ Carlotta, You already have this option when you use Publish - please, see attached images.
  13. Hello @Stu Wilson, I am sorry to read that you have had so many troubles with DWG import... I downloaded the zip - it actually contains a big project with lots of referenced DWG files. What is your workflow to import the project files? Do you use our Import Single DWG menu and bind all the references inside a single document or do you use the approach with Vectorworks referencing (Import DXF/DWG or DWF menu command, References group options)? Do you import using the default import options? What Vectorworks version do you use and are you on a Win machine or on a Mac? I tried different approaches, but did not see a crash (VW2021 SP2, Win). Saw some issues, but they might be due to the differences in the way we present some of the objects or assigning some of them to classes with different visibility compared to DWG (this could happen and might be reasonable depending on the complexity of the original project). One of the things I saw, is that one of the DWG blocks has a line inside its definition from (0,0) to the rest of the graphics far away in the space, which is set to an invisible layer - the line extents are however used to calculate the proposed layer scale and switching to the Design layer in Vectorworks shows the real graphics as a point and you have to zoom there to see it. This is something, which comes from the original project, but you could control it choosing a better layer scale from the Model space scale options in the Advanced options dialog. If you want you might write directly to me. Thank you for reporting, Nina
  14. Hello Magi, From what I see on the image and understand from the description, this is actually a different issue compared to the problems, described above. Yes, there are limitations set inside the third party library, which we use to create the DWG and DWF files. We pass the Vectorworks sheet sizes and what is done inside this library is to find the best matching sheet sizes and use them. We are currently working on a fix for an issue with the by-default set sizes when exporting from the Model space or as simplified graphics in the Model space (which is more related to the problems above) and might try to force the third party library to somehow accept our custom defined sizes. Thanks for reporting, Nina
  15. @Ivaylo Stanchev, Would you, please, look at the previous post and work with the customer? Thanks!
  16. And corresponding VW2020 version of the documents. BLK 27 - Level 1 v2020.vwx BLK 27 - Level 2 v2020.vwx BLK 27 - Level 3 v2020.vwx
  17. Sure, @Matt Hagen, here they are. Best, Nina BLK 27 - Level 1.vwx BLK 27 - Level 2.vwx BLK 27 - Level 3.vwx
  18. Hello Matt, We were able to see why the last char from the text is imported not as expected - the formatting is at the end of the DWG text, but it is actually not used for any of the text chars. The formatting has been wrongly added there - the DWG itself has not been originally created inside AutoCAD and actually such formatting cannot be added from inside there. AutoCAD however checks the case properly and shows the text correctly, while we have not expected such a case - right now, due to a failure to find a char, to which to apply it, we just apply it to the last char. An engineer worked on this issue and proposed a fix, which will be included in a future Vectorworks release/service pack. Until then, please use the attached document, which we created for you. Thank you for finding this problem and reporting it! Best regards, Nina BLK 27 - Ground Floor v2020.vwx BLK 27 - Ground Floor.vwx
  19. Would you, please, send the DWG file directly to me? I will try to find the reason and fix it so that you are able to import the file in VW2020.
  20. You are lucky 🙂 This was already fixed for SP2.
  21. Thank you for the report, @Matt Hagen This delay appears to be due to the export of a worksheet data object with lots of elements, which for some reason is not visible in the drawing. We will work to optimize the process of export. Until you have the fix, you might create a copy of the document, remove the WinDoor/VWI-Door/Window Schedule-All Layers worksheet from the Resource Manager, which is anyway not visible on the drawing (see attached image) and export to DWG. Thanks, Nina
  22. Hello @Victor S, Exporting the attached to your post document as it is results in creation of the Slab objects only in the IFC file - because Slabs have their own IFC data already attached to them. For all of the rest custom objects which you add in the document - like the extrudes in this example - you have to set the appropriate IFC data. You might want to read http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FIFC%2FIFC_format_interoperability.htm and more specifically http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FIFC%2FAssigning_IFC_data_to_objects.htm Hope this helps, Nina
  23. @michael john williams, this is what the regular AutoCAD 2020 gives to me when I try to open the DWG there: I do not know what AutoCAD version is using the surveyor, but there are some custom objects in the DWG. That is why we show the dialog in the beginning of the import too. For this exact DWG I did not see any graphics differences whatever option I chose from the above dialog - to not show proxy graphics, to show it or to show bounding boxes. Imported in Vectorworks graphics is identical to the graphics inside AutoCAD too.
