import clariscad easy?

Recommended Posts

I am sorry to say no there isn't. Even the old method of using the Claris Cad to MiniCAD translator is nolonger valid with the Vectorworks product.

The only other way would be to use a verions of MiniCAD to with the CC2MC software and then transfer the old file to Vectorworks

thanks for the tips..

I am not sure if the 90$ translator worths its price.. I mean: you can do it by the save as .pict in the claris cad and import it into VectorWorks.

The pict file saved by clariscad saves individual objects, patterns, tex etc.. (with some limitations as line thickness).

But what I was looking for is a direct import from VW.. I have around 2000 ClarisCad files and I dont want to translate all of them into another kind...before import them into VW ... imagine the work of the whole process.... open all the individual files... save them as pict dxf or whatever and then import them into VW.
