converting .dwg files

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to send a single .dwg file and includes floor plans, elevations, plot plans, etc?

I think you would have to send all that to a single page of layout and then create your .dwg file.    There may be a better way but that should do the trick.

What you are asking is a very involved action.

I'm not sure how CA could interpret all of that information and convert to model.:huh:

Rob,  No offence, but I think Mark is looking to export ( send ) a chief plan file to .dwg.  Did you interpret it the other way as an import ?

If so, then Yes you are correct, that would be quite a feat.

 

Maybe someone with a little more Auto Cad experience could comment but I believe they work on everything in the same drawing space so it would be perfectly acceptable to send a file to them that way.  Just lay everything out on a sheet of Arch E at whatever scale makes it all fit.  It would not take all that long to do from an existing layout file with copy and paste.  Just add a page and change the paper size and make the page template "None".

Just individually convert all the Chief files to DWG files and import all the converted files to one DWG file in AutoCAD.

 

Pretty easy actually.
