Regretably we were not able to renew our subscription this year so I won't be able to try the new feature. I could post my .rsc file if you'd like to try it. I would love to see how it works in Autocad as well if possible. If the converted styles function properly it could be a selling point to management.
I have been testing the use of this conversion feature, and it seems fine when the file is first imported. However, when saving the file and closing, and then re-opening, the linetypes have been washed away and I am left with continuous lines where my microstation linetypes once were. The linetype is still defined in the "Linetype" dialog, however the graphics simply loom like a continuous line. Any thoughts?
our client sent us dng files which I was able to convert to CAD 7, but my linetypes are not plotting right. The client sent us also all the linetypes and standards but in microstation format. How do I transfer/convert these standards so I can create the correct plot style so my drawings will plot correctly?
Did you find a solution to this problem?
I just used NCOPY to bring in a microstation linetype
and had the same result of getting the continuous line upon
reopening the drawing. I'm trying to make a double yellow with the
inside dash... using a shape created in autocad produced pitiful results.
I haven't gone through the workflow, but as Peter metioned above, you'll need to put the microstation linestyle file (.rsc) in the Autocad files path for the translation to maintain fidelity. So I would conclude you'll need to get the .rsc file from the DGN source.
I'd file a support request with reference to Peter's comment in this thread.
