Overlapping Lines in DWG Export


Hi all,

When I export from Vectorworks to DWG I get many overlapping lines when opened in AutoCAD. 2D linework exports fine, but the views created from a 3D model create the problem. I run OVERKILL in AutoCAD to try to clean up the linework and it helps, but not completely.  For example, at arched top windows there are still many many lines because of the segmentation of the curves.  Has anyone else experienced this or have any suggestions? I'm evaluating Vectorworks for our office as an alternative to Revit. We typically need to pass on a DWG version of our work and it needs to be clean.
