DGN TO DWG ISSUES

694 Views, 5 Replies

Hey,

 

I work for a very large Electrical company in Toronto and we are having problems with one of our major clients (happens to be one of the biggest design construction companies in Toronto).

 

They designed the job with Microstation and the contractor and sub trades on site all use Autocad. However we have to edit all the original drawings from the designer with Autocad to do the as built drawings and then transfer them back into DGN for the submittals.

 

However despite all our efforts every time we transfer them in Autocad the text alignment is off. including the dimensions which for what ever reason show up upside down???

 

Now we are talking about thousands of drawings here so if anyone can help with an easy way to convert files from dgn to dwg and have it work out perfectly that would be amazing.

 

Thanks,

Your autocad drawing was in the wrong UCS that's why.

How were you able to transfer that with all the proper colours and line weights as well? Excuse my lack of noledge on this but we don't usually work with Microstation.

Since you deleted your attachment, I forgot what I did.

There are 2 ways, open .dgn with MS and save as .dwg or DGNimport with Autocad.
