Is there a way to batch convert acad files back to acad 2000 from acad 2011? If it cannot be done within the autodesk software can someone recommend a 3rd party program that I can download that is cheap or free. Thanks for the help.

If you are on subscription there is a DWGConvert tool on the Subscription tab. The command is DWGCONVERT

 

There is built in setup for going back to 2000, 2004, & 2007 or you can build your own.

Have a look at Batch Converter within AC, that should do the trick!

Just use eTransmit and change the file version under options to whatever you want.

Trueview: AutoDesk *and* free.  Not only down-converts but also includes clean/audit, removal of printer references, scrubbing of visual fidelity for annotative objects, and resetting annotation scales.  Send your client/recipient a link to the download page so they have it as well, just in case you miss a file or two.
