Hiii,

I need to convert Microstation (.dgn) files to AutoCAD (.dwg) files. But after conversion the BOM ballons got changed in to boxes when opening in AutoCAD.

Please someone help me in this case as soon as possible,

 

Because i need to convert 11.000 files.  :smileysad:

Microstation does the best job of conversion to DWG.
AutoCAD does not. If you have Eleven Thousand Files to convert you might consider purchasing a dedicated converter that will do all of those files unattended. Remeber to try before you buy.

Ya .... Actually i am using "Batch Converter" in Microstation V8 XM Edition for converting the files.

Is there any other options to get this done.???

 

If u provide a solution for this, I will be very thankful for you ....  :smileyhappy:

Out sourcing may be your best option for that volume, unless you have a lot of time in your budget and want to stay busy doing non-fun work.. Maybe hire an intern for the grunt work? 

 

DWG /= DGN, and there will always be 'gotchas' that need a human being to validate and fix.
