  1. @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. 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,

  3. 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?

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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.

    On 1/3/2021 at 5:44 PM, Magi said:

    Are there any sheet size limitation?

    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,

  8. 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
