How to convert rules to AutoCAD layers

150 Views, 1 Replies

I've been given a drawing which needs to be converted to an AutoCad drawing. I can do that but I need the thematic rules (defined in the Style Editor) to be transferred to unique AutoCad layers and the layers named according to the corrsponding Legend Label.

eg. in the Style Editor I have rules such as :

"NAME" = building

"NAME" = tree

"NAME" = road

 

So, when I run the MAPTOACAD command I want each of the above to be transferred to AutoCad layers named after the correpsonding Legend Label.

 

Any ideas?

Hi,

 

one idea is you connect 3 times to the same datasource (so you have 3 different GIS-Layers).

Then you set a fitler, for layer1 filter to NAME = 'building', layer 2 filter to NAME = 'tree' and so on.
