DXF output


DXF output

We are running WF 3.0 M130, and we are outputting .dxf's that are then
converted using TruTops to a .geo. After this conversation takes place
all the solid lines are dashed. If we take and open the .dxf in AutoCAD
and resave it as either a 2000 or 2004 .dxf the file then converts
correctly. Has anyone encountered this or able to tell me what is set
incorrectly. I would greatly appreciate it.

We have seen this before with some colors. What we typically do now is open the dxf in TruTops and modify the color to white to avoid problems. If I am remembering correctly, we had a problem with lines colored cyan. TruTops turned all cyan lines into dashed lines.

Hope this helps

There's a setting to have Pro|E output an ACAD 2000 style DXF. Set
dxf_export_format to 2000. It's supposed to be the default, actually,
in WF3, but if using the options dialog, it defaults to 12 regardless of
the option setting.

There are a variety of DXF options you can set that may help, search for
'DXF' in the options dialog.
