Exporting to DWG/DXF

Question

Hi I have been trying to export all the sheet layers in the attached file but the process never gets beyond the "examining file" in the dialogue box. I have tried to export the individual sheets but only a few will export. The others never get beyond "examining file" in the dialogue box. Can you assist?

Thanks, Justin

What version of Vw are you using.

 

I opened the file in Vw 2019 (the font you used was mapped to Arial) and published all of the Sheet Layers to DWG as 2D in Model Space without any problems.

HI Mike

I use VW2018 Fundamentals - would that be the issue?

It shouldn't be an issue.  Fundamentals doesn't have Publish though so you will manually have to export each sheet individually.  

 

I'll try exporting them from Vw 2018 and post whether I have a problem or not.

I had no problems at all.  These are the settings I used.

Try:

- resetting your Vw preferences and then restarting Vw.

- updating to the latest Service Pack.

 

You should also consider upgrading to Vw 2019 Architect as it is a far more capable version for architectural work and it will make you more productive.  Contact your distributor for the details of the current low cost upgrade option.

Hi Justin,

 

I used VW2018 Fundamentals to export to DWG your posted file and there were no problems. I used these settings:

I attached the result of export in a zip, so that you can use it if you wish.
