Exporting DWG file crashes VW

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble exporting a dwg version of my VW drawing. I think the file may be corrupted as I am able to create a new file in VW and and export that file as a dwg file. I'm using VW 2008. If the file is corrupted, what's the workaround? I need to give a dwg file to a contractor and a pdf won't work. Thanks

First ungroup any nested symbols or groups, then Purge Unused Objects.

Another trick is to select the drawing objects you want to keep, copy, and paste into a new blank drawing file.

This should narrow the scope on any suspect corrupted objects.
