Export to DWG Generated elevations


Recommended Posts

When I export a drawing to DWG in 2009 some generated elements in section and elevations disappear. I will have walls and slab but the roof trusses disappeared. In elevations I get a few wall lines and no windows or doors. Everything shows up in the VW drawing before export and I updated the section viewports.

I need to get this resolved because I have to send all my drawings to others as DWG. I would also like to find out if there was a way to choose which font to export to in Autocad. Or if there is an arch style font in macVW that at least converts to something similar in Acad. After exporting all the text is overlapping and looks like crap. Will setting the simplex style to autocad to something close help with this.

To get exploded lines from viewports--which should give you a simpler DXF to export (while still keeping back an updatable template layer)--try this workaround shown in the video tutorial called Hidden Line Editing. Links to the video can be found here in the #33 newsletter:


A text counterpart exists in the #32 newsletter.

Can you simply agree with your A'Cad counterpart to use the same font?
