im trying to make a template for the company.

we would like to be able to export DWG's from inventor to aurocad, so other people can use them too.

now i can export it and i have different layers, but all the lines are black.

ive tryed to change the color on different line tipes in the style editor, but that way the colors change in inventor to


so what we want is all the lines in the DWG's in inventor to be black, but when we export it to ACAD, all different line types have a different layer and color. and can i save it as a template?



kind regards

nevermind, already figured it out.

had to make a layer template in ACAD.

so when i open an inventor DWG in ACAD and open this template, maching line names change the inventor layers into the custom ACAD layers.
