HELP needed with converting older MiniCad files

Recommended Posts

Could somebody please convert some older MiniCad files for me?

I'm a master-student at the faculty of architecture in Delft, and for my final design, I received some floreplans for a building similar to my own design, as a reference. The architect I received them from could not open or convert them himself, since he had updated a couple of times since. And lost his original program. The drawing is probably drawn with MiniCad 4 or 5.

Since my faculty only works with Autocad/Windows, I have no experience with, or acces to either Mac or Vectorworks/MiniCad. And all the converting software that I found on this forum or with google, are for Mac. Could somebody please convert a file for me to something that Autocad will understand (*.dwg), or a PDF, or... anything will do.

Please mail me on jaap(underscore)plugge(at)hotmail(dot)com or send me a message. Thanx in advance.

There is a minicad converter on vectorworks.be

Just go to "Mijn Vectorworks" and then to "downloads", there you'll find at the end of the list a translator that will convert a minicad file to a Vectorworks file. That vectorworks file you then can export to a pdf with the VectorWorks viewer (also available on that same site). Athough i'm not very sure if you can export to PDF with the viewer...

Maarten.

The link to VectorWorksConvertor.hqx on that site links to a classic application which won't work on most mac user's systems. I don't know about the windows side.
