DWG Export Clipping

Recommended Posts

Need to send drawing to my engineer.  Exporting ALL ON Set as DWG.

 

All the Layers are exported properly but the export as DWG is clipping the drawing.  What's set in Chief that is causing the export to clip?

 

Thanks.

You have no answers because you've provided too little information Basil. Too hard to tell what we're even looking at, and that second image couldn't possibly be an exported DWG file because it shows clipped text boxes which isn't even possible unless its just an image that we're looking at.  I think you'll need to post an example of the plan file and/or DWG file or its all a bunch of guesswork.

Those were screenshots of the content in Chief and then the clipped .DWG export in AutoCAD.  

But, I figured it out.  I had had surgery the day before so was not paying attention and was exporting in inches not feet.  Must have hit a limit in inches that resulted in a clipped .DWG export.

 

When I changed to feet it exported the entire plan file without the clipping.  

Moral of the story: “Never Chief while under the influence of narcotics.”  But my engineer was needing it, so I had to try.  Ha Ha.

 

Thanks.
