How to export Inventor drawing to DWG without losing fonts, lineweights

Hi,

in Inventor I use my own library with different layers, font types, colors, lineweights etc. In Inventor drawing it works well. But after exporting to DWG only colors of different layers stay the same; all fonts, lineweights change to one (maybe somekind of default) font, lineweight.

How could I repair that, I need drawing in DWG to look like the same as in Inventor.

I have tried to use "Configuration" in DWG file exporting option and I have created my own configuration, but it did not help... I simply do not understand how it works...

If the "Configuration" in DWG file exporting option is the clue - please be more specific and explain what should I do!

Thank you!

What program are you trying to read the DWG files in?

Is there another format that would be exceptable?  Like DWF?

What ultimately are you trying to accomplish?

I would suspect the template you're using for the conversion.

Hi! Without seeing the files, it is hard to tell where the problem is and how to help you solve it. Could you attach an example here or send them to me via email? If the files are greater than 20MB, I can set up a secure account for you to upload.

Thanks!

My Inventor does not allow to export/convert to DXF, only DWG.

But if I export to PDF all stays the same (fonts, lineweights etc.)
