I'm trying to convert drawings from Inventor 2012 in order to use them in AutoCAD 2000
I tried converting them with DWG Trueview 2014(making them ACAD2000 .dwg) but every time I try to open the files in ACAD2000 I have proxy objects error messages.. Is it normal?
Maybe Im not using the good conversion setup..
I also tried to change the type of file in the saving options to save them directly in the 2000 dwg type but it didnt help.. I had the same problem when opening in ACAD
What do you mean by saving as autocad.. cause I am the file creator hehe
Like you said it looks like the file was not converted but when you try to open an Inventor .DWG in ACAD2000 the error message says it cannot open the file because it was created by a more recent version..
After my conversion I'm able to open it but there are those proxy messages that appear first
I've read 3 of your threads on this issue, and don't find a clear discription of the "picks and clicks" you made to get the DWG out of Inventor. There are several methods to do this, but the one I think you want is described in this thread:
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
