Thickness of geometry elements from .mi to dwg in creo emennts dir mod 18.1

Thickness of geometry elements from .mi to dwg in creo emennts dir mod 18.1

When I convert a drawing from .mi to .dwg, using creo emennts direct modeling 18.1, all the elements of geometry changes the thickness of rows following the scale factor. If, as an example, i use a scale 5:1, aftre conversion from .mi to .dwg, the rows of geometry increase the thickness oh 5 times and the drawing in .dwg is very difficult to see. This do not occour if I convert from .mi to .pdf. Also the conversion of value and thickness of quotes is correct. The problem is only of geometry of drawing converted in ,dwg.

Hello Giangiacomo,

can you try this?
Open the file
C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo Elements\Direct Modeling 18.1\dxfdwg\DXFDWG.con

(Example = Standard instal directory)
with Aministrator rights.
There you will find in line 49 this entry
TranslateMIPenLineSize       1
This is the default.
In readme.htm in the same directory you will find this explanation:

TranslateMIPenLineSize

This configuration switch determines how the pensize and linesize are translated. There are five possible values:

1. Translate MI Pensize and Linesize into DXF/DWG Linesize (default)

2. Translate MI Pensize and Linesize into 0

3. Translate MI Linesize into DXF/DWG Linesize and MI Pensize into 0

4. Translate MI Linesize into DXF/DWG Linesize and MI Pensize into DXF/DWG Lineweight

5. Translate MI Linesize and Pensize into DXF/DWG Lineweight


Now just have to play with it until you have found the right setting for you.
I have chosen 2 everything on LineSize and Pensize 0

Best regards
