I am on the other end of this dilemma. I am a consultant who is receiving VW files that have been converted to AutoCad. Each subsequent VW release creates a new challange on our end. I am trying to figure out how the conversion process works and understand if something simple on their end can be done to ease the difficulties experienced on our end. The files can be opened but not easily used. There are symbols with many nested symbols within them. We associate penwidths with certain colors. In the process of changing colors to allow our work to be highlighted, we are not able to get the architectural information in the proper format. Any attempt, bursting, exploding, etc., causes the entities to lose association with their layers. Can anyone shed light on a process that may help get the VW file broken down to its basic elements durning the conversion process?
