Problems with Export - View


Having a problem exporting a file.

I am exporting the design layers and some layers export as a non-plan view.

The saved vectorworks file is currently in Top/Plan view.

When I open the file in autocad - it opens as a right oblique view - when I change the view to top in autocad door / window and other information is not visible.

Any ideas on a fix?

The project I have has 2 buildings - each building is a separate file and is referenced with VP references into the main layout file that contains all the drawing sheets.

When I create an export dwg from this file, the walls and the 3d objects do not export...

I have tried

-Export layers as separate files (this is our standard setting

- Export design layer viewports as separate files (not what I want to do but I have tried this on and off)

- Export "design layers only" and export as "drawing sheets"

Is this a bug with SP3? As I did not have the problem before?

Are you using 'Unified View'?

It will make all the layers have the same view as the on you are working on.

Try turning this on, switch to Top/Plan View and then export.

Try exporting as version 14/LT/98. It's really old but seems to work better.

I have had this problem recently and ended up having to copy and paste to a new file, but R14 seems to be OK.

Ever since the implication of layer planes the export stuff is erratic
