ODA Platform Error

Question

I'm trying to export a file to dwg format and get an error message advising that there is an ODA Platform error and a dwg is not produced.

 

We are just switching over to VectorWorks from AutoCAD so the original drawing was generated in CAD then imported into VectorWorks.  Now I have to export as DWG again so as to share it with other consultants.

 

I tried exporting as older DWG files and including referenced files as separate layers instead of separate files.  I still get the same error message.

 

Any solves would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

I am also having issues with this error. I tried purging what I could (I am not going to purge coincident objects etc.) but it didn't solve anything.

 

Edit: I did solve this. The issue is it fails when writing to a network attached storage drive. it works when saving to the local drive. I have a Synology based drive.

The purging didn't work for us however we reserved  our file name without any forward slashes or underscores and it worked.

sounds like the ODA library just cant handle common characters in file paths...

 

I always use underscores in my file names and normally dont have problems exporting DWG..but exporting to a NAS device seems to have pushed it over the edge, probably because of the \\ in the file paths

I had  another file which wouldn't export to a dwg.  Saving a copy of the file with a simpler name then using it to generate the .dwg got around this.  Thanks for the tip.
