Exporting 3D

Question

When I am exporting to DWG my files seem to lose all 3D qualities. I am exporting them to use in the light rendering program AGI. Anyone have any thoughts on why my DWG files revert to 2D? Thanks

Are you exporting them from a 3D view (rather than Top/Plan), and ticking all the appropriate 3D boxes in the export window?

The problem is often caused by the 2D/3D hybrid nature of some VW objects (walls, symbols, etc). When exported from Top/Plan, they appear as 2D objects in Acad. If you use Nicholas's suggestion, the 3D view will be treated as though it is a Top/Plan view. Your 3D objects will display, but the views are incorrect.

If you Convert to 3D Polys before export, all your hybrid objects,symbols will import as 3D objects.
