Bad quality saving from IV6 to AutoCAD

I am new to drawings on Inventor so this might be something simple I just don't know about. Is there any way to set up the line widths in Inventor for exporting to AutoCAD. When I export something all the lines are at different pin widths and even after I change them to default in AutoCAD, they still look huge on the screen.

Thanks

When you are in Autocad just turn off the line
weight display.  On Acad 2000 there are buttons along the bottom of the
screen, toggle the "LWT" button off and this should fix the
problem.


 

Remove "22" in address to email me

If you are trying to control the line width by
layer in AutoCAD, make sure that the lineweight control for each line is set to
ByLayer.

The is also a LWT global scale adjustment in
the autocad options which controls how heavy the lineweights appear
onscreen
